Samsung Partners with National Geographic for a Shark Dive

Wildlife Filmmaker Malaika Vaz took the water-proof encased phone on a series of dives off the Maldives in an attempt to capture Tiger Sharks in their natural habitat.

Samsung has teamed up with National Geographic Traveller India to take part in the #UncoverTheEpic campaign. The smartphone manufacturer aimed to showcase the Galaxy S21’s 8K Video capabilities and highlight the hi-res stills that can be pulled from the cinematic video.

National Geographic Explorer and Wildlife Filmmaker Malaika Vaz took the water-proof encased phone on a series of dives off the Maldives in an attempt to capture Tiger Sharks in their natural habitat. Video of her journey can be viewed on both Samsung India and National Geographic Traveller India’s social media channels starting today.

“We are excited to unveil yet another episode of an epic adventure with National Geographic Traveller India, shot using Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. At Samsung, we believe in innovations that enable our consumers to do more,” said Aditya Babbar, senior director and head, mobile marketing, Samsung India.

Using only Samsung’s flagship smartphone, Vaz captured schools of tropical fish, sea turtles, and a number of massive sharks in 8K and extracted high-resolution stills from the video.

“While filming underwater in the Maldives, I was surrounded by Tiger Sharks, Hawksbill Turtles, schools of fish and corals – and I was able to capture super high resolution video footage of these species almost effortlessly,” said Vaz.
