Samsung is about to reveal its next Galaxy device next month and it’s making its global debut here in Malaysia. This is the first Samsung global launch event to take place locally and it’s possibly the biggest launch yet after the Galaxy S and Note series. As teased earlier, the upcoming device promises 4x the fun and it could bring more ways to express yourself than ever before.
Samsung Galaxy A
Before we enter the new year, Samsung has already revealed its Galaxy A series for 2018. Unlike its predecessor, Samsung appears to be sticking to just two models to mimic its current Galaxy S series. If you’re wondering about the price tag, the new premium mid-range duo has officially launched in Vietnam and Samsung has revealed their local pricing.
Ask anyone who has some experience with searching for the best bang-for-buck smartphone and they’ll probably tell you to avoid big brands when you’re on a tight budget. Stick to something like Xiaomi, for example, and you’re bound to get something that’ll give you way more smartphone for your money.
But that doesn’t stop big brands like Samsung from making entry and mid-range smartphones. And the thing I noticed with something like Samsung’s brand new Galaxy A8 is that they’re getting dangerously good at doing this.
Before the year is out, Samsung has officially announced its new Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018). These are their latest premium mid-range smartphones that feature a large Infinity Display and dual front cameras that can produce Live Focus selfies.
People like to complain that tech sites and reviewers only get excited about expensive flagship phones that hardly anyone can afford instead of the everyman mid-range phone. But there are two good reasons for that: The first is that flagship phones tend to have awesome kickass features. The second is that those awesome features you see in this year’s flagships will likely show up in next year’s affordable mid-range handset.
If you’ve been longing to get your hands on the gorgeous Infinity Displays Samsung equips with their flagship Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note8 phones, 2018 could be a good year for you. Why? Well, the latest leaks of Samsung’s Galaxy A (2018) phones seem to indicate that they’ll feature Infinity Displays of their own.
This year’s flagships are mostly focused on delivering the largest screen without increasing the size of the phone. Instead of having a wider device, the new screens are taller with a typical 18:9 display aspect ratio as a result of a thinner forehead and chin design.
The Galaxy S8/S8+ and Note8 are Samsung’s first attempt at an all-screen phone with its Infinity Display. Now it appears that they are bringing this big screen experience onto their next mid-range smartphones that are due in early 2018.
Cash is such an archaic way to make payments. Not only is it more prone to being stolen, you also have to make constant trips to the ATM machine to withdraw more cash. Cards, on the other hand, require signatures or pins and that’s pretty inconvenient when you’re in a rush.
So, what’s left then? Well, that’s where Samsung Pay comes in and here are the 3 reasons why you should start jumping on this bandwagon right this moment.
The new Samsung Galaxy A series for 2017 is now available in two more colour options. When it was launched in Malaysia last month, it came only in either Black Sky and Gold Sand. If you’re looking for something different, you can now get the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 in Blue Mist or Peach Cloud options.
The latest Samsung Galaxy A5 and A7 (2017) aren’t just well built but they are also the first in the Galaxy A series to be rated IP68 dust and water resistant. This gives it added protection for whatever life throws at you. But what’s the big deal about having a water resistant phone? Read on to find out.
Last week we saw some of the first smartphones to launch locally for the year 2017. They were upper mid-range devices from two of the top 5 smartphone manufacturers in the world and are designed to give you a flagship-like feel for below RM2,000. These devices are the Samsung Galaxy A (2017) and the OPPO R9s.
Despite the rather different marketing skews, these smartphones actually share quite a lot of specifications in common — chief of which are their selfie-centric 16-megapixel front-facing cameras and premium build. But which should you get if you wanted one?
Let’s see if we can help you decide.
