Samsung Gaming Hub has created an interactive 3D livestream featuring an intense Rocket League duel between two gaming influencers, which is being shown live on Piccadilly Lights. Utilizing Ocean Outdoor’s DeepScreen Alive technology for the first time to allow live reactions from OOH spectators into the livestream experience, Samsung’s Gaming Hub Challenge feat. Rocket League elevates digital out-of-home (DOOH) to a new level. Cheil collaborated in the development of the project.

This 15-minute game, which was produced by CYLNDR, took place on Piccadilly Lights in London and featured influencers Apparently Jack (@ApparentlyJxck) and Vatira (@Vatira5) competing to become the Samsung Gaming Hub Champion. The game was presented as though OOH viewers were watching it on their own TV with the help of Ocean Labs and Ocean Studio, who created a 3D animation of a Samsung Smart TV for the Piccadilly Lights presentation.

Viewers in Piccadilly Circus could use their smartphones to give their responses as they saw them by scanning a QR code to visit a website and choosing an emoji response that materialized on the large screen instantly. Samsung Gaming Hub is the gaming streaming service equipped in the gaming TVs and monitors from Samsung. It comes with access to more than 3,000 popular games like Xbox, NVIDIA GeForce NOW, and other streaming services, which is quick and simple.

Users can play without any restrictions on storage size, without the need for a console or PC, and just stream. Samsung is a long-term advertising partner for the Piccadilly Lights, which are run by Ocean on behalf of Landsec. With Ocean Virus, a fully integrated, purpose-built hardware and software solution that includes the Unreal game engine and offers limitless possibilities for real-time answers and 3D interactivity, Ocean was able to create its first-ever live-rendered DeepScreen scene.

Donna Buckingham, Head of Business, Cheil, said, “We’re incredibly proud to be partnering with Samsung to launch the first-ever livestreamed gaming event on the iconic 3D Piccadilly Circus screen. Whether watching online or visiting the Piccadilly screen, fans can enjoy cheering on their gaming hero, experiencing a first-of-its-kind event that positions the Samsung Gaming Hub as the heart of gaming.”

Samsung Galaxy S25’s advanced AI novelties could boost its price

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra Brightness & Adaptive Color Tone

Samsung started working on the Galaxy S25 series, which is supposed to be launched early next year. This forthcoming device is expected to be priced higher as compared to its predecessor. 

Samsung will expand its high-end S series by introducing a next-gen smartphone series named the Galaxy S25. It’s too early to discuss the Galaxy S25, but leaks and rumors are doing their jobs by offering more details about the upcoming Galaxy S25. This upcoming device is expected to cost more than the current S-series devices. 

The reason behind this report appears to be that a Galaxy S25 will be more expensive than a Galaxy S24 due to its higher manufacturing costs. The US chip designer Qualcomm could push the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 into production in the second half of the year. This latest chipset is expected to boost AI processing. 

Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will be a truly advanced chip, but its high-end tech advancements might lead to higher costs, which could translate into a price hike for the upcoming Galaxy S25. The report suggested that, according to a recent prediction from industry watcher Ming-Chi Kuo, Qualcomm might increase the cost of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 by 25–30% compared to the Gen 3 solution. 

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will be manufactured on the 3nm N3E process by TSMC; it’s the same technique used to build Apple’s A18 Pro chip. This shift will supposedly cause the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 to be 25–30% more expensive than its predecessor. Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 costs around $190–$200; by this metric, the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 might cost $260. 

However, Samsung could deal with the higher expenses of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 for the Galaxy S25 by absorbing the cost or reducing the quality in other areas, such as the battery or display, but this could be risky, such as switching to its in-house Exynos 2500 chip. The upcoming chipset will be fabricated from TSMC’s most advanced process and should bring performance gains to the CPU, GPU, and NPU (AI processing).
