Samsung Teams Up with The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The University of Texas at Austin to Showcase Three Inspiring Students

Talking Points

  • Samsung partnered with The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The University of Texas at Austin to help three talented students showcase the Do What You Can’t spirit with the Galaxy Note10+.
  • As a surprise, the three students learned that they would each receive a financial award from Samsung covering the remainder of their academic tuition.
  • Samsung empowers future generations to achieve their full potential through education under its citizenship vision “Together for Tomorrow! Enabling People”.

 Technology is at its best when it helps people do what they can’t — when it inspires, empowers, opens up new opportunities, and lets everyone tell their own story. When creative people get their hands on great devices and let their imagination run wild, magic happens.

That’s what happened last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Earlier this year, we partnered with The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to do something that had never been done before — film an episode of late-night TV with a smartphone, the Galaxy S10+.

In that spirit of using technology to defy barriers, we decided to once again join forces with The Tonight Show, this time to do something special at The University of Texas at Austin.

We worked with The University of Texas at Austin to identify three students — all academically successful student leaders — to receive a Galaxy Note10+.
