Genshin Impact is an open-world action game that is widely popular. People love the game for its storyline, the excellent graphics, and the details you experience when playing it. It surely requires a high-end phone to get the best out of the game. The game demonstrated its popularity in South Korea, where the Genshin Impact-themed Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Buds 2 Pro sold out in a matter of minutes after they went on sale.
According to the Chinese gaming and animation company HoYoverse (via The Korea Herald), 100 units of the Genshin Impact-themed Galaxy Z Fold 4 and 200 units of the Genshin Impact-themed Galaxy Buds 2 Pro were sold within 14 minutes after they became available on Samsung’s Galaxy Store on December 21.

The HoYoverse booth garnered huge visitor attention as thousands lined up to get a glimpse of these Genshin Impact-themed Samsung gadgets.
Ever since its launch in 2020, Genshin Impact has been a favorite open-world game for millions across the globe. In fact, as per a market tracker, Sensor Tower, the game managed to log the third-highest revenue in Sensor Tower’s global mobile games rankings. Its revenue went past $1.5 billion from the beginning of this year to December 20, 2022. The same popularity was seen in South Korea, which is why Samsung tried to make the best out of the situation, and it paid off well.
