Hatch is kick-starting the 5G era in mass-market consumer services as part of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S10 5G device launch in the world’s fourth-largest games market.
As part of the cooperation, three months of Hatch Premium is included with purchase of the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G in Korea. Starting today, Samsung will also promote Hatch in retail stores across the country, while featuring Hatch as a 5G hero service in the Galaxy App Store and the Game Launcher app. High-profile Hatch League events - casual mobile eSports tournaments where everyday players can step up and become a star - are also planned for later this year.
For Hatch, the partnership with Samsung comes on the heels of recently announced collaborations with leading teleoperators such as NTT DOCOMO in Japan and Sprint in the United States. Working together with the world’s top operators and device manufacturers signals a major escalation of Hatch’s go-to-market pace globally, following the battle-tested service’s European soft launch.
