(UPDATED: June 2, 2023) A new hangout spot offers music, gaming and other immersive activities for Filipino mobile users this month.

Located at the Bonifacio High Street Amphitheater, the Samsung Epic After Hours event or hub was launched as a new must-visit before the summer season ends.

Samsung Philippines also promoted this new entertainment site on its Facebook account.

The Epic After Hours also showcased the brand’s newest smartphone series—the Galaxy S23.

It was supposed to run from May 25 to 31.

Due to the inclement weather, however, there will be changes in the schedule, including the talks, workshops and performances of artists.

In an update, Samsung announced that the last day of the “Epic After Hours” spot is on June 3, which will be the culmination of the event.

For the remaining schedule of activities, interested patrons can visit the brand’s social media accounts and official website here Samsung Philippines | Shop Mobile, TV & Home Appliances Online.

The following immersive booths and areas, meanwhile, await them when they get the chance to visit the place in BGC, Taguig.

Nightography selfie booth

Nightography is Samsung Galaxy’s signature Night Mode feature. It allows users to shoot vivid and bright pictures in low-light settings without turning on the flash mode.

On its website, Samsung explained that Galaxy phones are capable of capturing such pictures because of artificial intelligence (AI) and low-light camera settings.

“On Galaxy phones, it’s called Night mode, and it lets you shoot vivid low-light pics without that overly bright flash that tends to wash everyone out,” its page reads.

“AI also lends a hand, combining multiple frames into the clearest image. If you’re out for the night and don’t want to spend too much time tinkering with your camera settings, this is your go-to move,” it continues.

For patrons who want to experience this feature, the Epic Nightography booth has multiple Instagram-worthy corners where visitors can take portrait selfies under low-light settings.
