‘Samantha Samsung’ Is The Internet’s Latest NSFW Infatuation

Unsurprisingly, the internet has a new obsession and it’s the rejected AI mascot, Samantha Samsung.

The images of Samantha originated from a design company called Lightfarm. She was created in collaboration with a marketing firm of Samsung, clearly intended to market the Galaxy line of phones at one point or another.

That marketing campaign never saw the light of day, but the images have found their way into the public sphere. They resided on the Lightfarm website before they were recently taken down. Luckily, nothing on the internet is ever truly deleted, which is why we’re able to see Samantha now.

Samantha has a cutesy animated style, with the large eyes synonymous with a Disney animation, or Alitta: Battle Angel. She’s seen posing with her Samsung Galaxy phone in trendy poses, clearly well versed in the language of Instagram.

It didn’t take long for the internet to turn these few images into an entire fandom. Fans have flooded Twitter with memes featuring Samantha, some going the full simp.

Reddit’s NSFW rule34 subreddit has also been popping off with lewd images of Samantha in compromising positions. The artists are nothing if not imaginative, put it that way.

It’s nothing new that the internet has become infatuated with a fictional woman. If Resident Evil Village taught us anything, it’s that basement dwellers will love anything, even if it’s 9ft tall and has talons

Samantha Samsung to replace Bixby?

Samantha might have just been a marketing campaign, but it’s possible that she was created to rival Apple and Google’s assistant features. Samsung already has Bixby, but it’s a fairly lifeless competitor that most users end up disabling.

If Samantha did end up becoming a fully-fledged virtual assistant, who knows quite how the internet might react. If this is the response to just a few frames, I dread to think what could come of a fully realised AI.
