The drone delivery service will only be available to customers when they purchase the latest Galaxy devices like the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, and the recently launched Galaxy A series from the company's Irish online store.
Eamonn Grant, Head of Online for Samsung Ireland, said in a statement:
Manna will be using custom-developed aerospace-grade drones to deliver Samsung's best Android phones, tablets, and wearables to customers' homes in Oranmore. These drones have a maximum speed of over 60kph (37mph) and fly at an altitude of 164 to 262 feet, which should allow the Galaxy devices to reach customers' homes in under 3 minutes. Manna had partnered with grocery giant Tesco earlier this year to deliver groceries and books to customers in the town.
