The Samsung x LINE FRIENDS Pop-Up Store


Samsung x LINE FRIENDS Pop-Up Store, Westgate

LINE FRIENDS seem to only exist in the  form of inanimate stickers of the perpetually shy and socially awkward Brown and his bae, outgoing Cony. For all the LINE FRIENDS out there, there is a pop-up store at Westgate (#03-01), from now till 2nd April from 11am – 10pm for you to immerse yourself in the world of LINE FRIENDS and catch first glimpse of the new Samsung Galaxy A (2017)!

Best part about this pop-up is that you might score freebies as #damnworthit as a brand new Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) every week. If that sounds like something right up your alley, here’s  what you can expect:


4D VR Experience with LINE FRIENDS on Six Flags’ rollercoaster

Virtual Reality isn’t just for horror games, it literally opens doors to places you wouldn’t even have dreamed of.

Hop on the VR rollercoaster ride at the LINE pop-up store and experience the Six Flags’ Theme Park without having to fork out $2,000 for a flight to California. The experience works just like real life – turn your head to see what’s beside you, behind you, below you – and on this particular ride, just put on the headset, raise your arms, and sit tight while the chairs swing you off into motion. 

Unlike other VR sets, Samsung Gear VR gets you a bigger field of view, smoother images, and super low light leakage and reflection prevention for the most realistic virtual experience. It also works seamlessly with Galaxy smartphones, so just plug in the Micro USB connection, and you can even do things like watch Netflix and play games.


Take a wefie at the photo wall and win a Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) weekly

Most of us wouldn’t be caught dead with a selfie stick, but our pride results in badly taken shots with cut out faces or no shots at all. Turn on the gesture control function while taking a selfie on the new Galaxy A series (2017) to the test at their photo wall and you might just be walking away with a brand new Galaxy A5 (2017) (U.P. $548).

All you have to do is raise your palm, and their 16MP camera will run a 3-second timer upon detecting the movement before it snaps those shots that you get to keep forever. Don’t forget to load those snaps on your Instagram with the hashtag #SAMSUNGXLINEFRIENDSSG and #GalaxyA2017 for your chance to win!

Note: Participants in the Instagram lucky draw must make public their Instagram accounts.

Take a 360° wefie with LINE friends and win a Gear 360 (U.P. $498) every week


360 cams are gaining traction in mainstream media – if you don’t understand the allure, here’s what 360 cams can do:

Of course, at the LINE pop-up store, 360 cameras mean we can fit more friends into our shot, and more LINE friends, naturally.

For those of us who have a lot in our lives to capture, and a normal camera doesn’t quite do your experiences justice, you’ve got the Gear 360. With the option to use either of the 2 in-built cameras, you’ll always be ready to capture everything in both photo and video.

It also helps that the aperture goes as low as F2.0 for low light situations, giving your photo the life and detail you see with your naked eye.


Like the A series, the Gear 360 is dust and splash proof. The best part is, that you don’t have to wait till you get home to view your photos – just pair your Gear 360 with your Galaxy smartphone via Bluetooth, and watch your memories replay in crisp clarity.

Upload your 360 shot to your IG and hashtag #SAMSUNGXLINEFRIENDSSG and #Gear360 and score a Gear 360 (U.P. $498) to up your photography and videography game.

Note: Participants in the Instagram lucky draw must make public their Instagram accounts.
