A small number of lucky Irish Samsung customers can enjoy the fun of “falling from the sky” of the ordered goods.Samsung partners with local drone delivery service Manna Drone Delivery, As long as you purchase the latest S21 Ultra, Galaxy Buds Pro, Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Watch 3 or Galaxy A series through the official website of Ireland, you can choose to use drones for fast delivery. Unfortunately, it is currently limited to a small town called “Oranmore” with a population of about 5,000, so it’s hard to say how many people can use the service.

Manna uses a special delivery drone that can fly at an altitude of about 50 to 80 meters at a speed of more than 60 kilometers per hour. Because Oranmore is not too big, Manna claims that it only takes three minutes for the drone to reach the customer’s designated delivery location. In addition to Samsung, Manna also cooperates with local supermarkets and other companies to deliver groceries, books, medicines and other items. It also brings “contactless delivery” services for this time when there is not too much contact.

The development of drone delivery services is bound to be carried out by small towns like Oranmore. In addition to the complete coverage without too many drones, the residents of such rural towns usually also have a wider private space, but only drones can land, of course, there are fewer obstacles in the sky. However, both Samsung and Manna indicated that they are willing to expand their services to all of Ireland in the future.
