In addition to the new SUHD TVs, Samsung also launched its latest range of UHD TVs and audio products.  

Introducing Unmatched Picture Quality

Samsung SUHD TVs demonstrate groundbreaking advances in colour reproduction, brightness, contrast and detail to deliver a sensational TV viewing experience. They utilise proprietary, eco-friendly nano-crystal technology and include an intelligent SUHD re-mastering picture quality engine.

Furthermore, Samsung’s SUHD TVs use environmentally-friendly technology to deliver high energy efficiency and reliability.

Sophisticated and Improved Curved Designs

The newly announced Samsung SUHD TV JS9500 features a chamfer bezel design that adds more depth to the TV screen, and an elegant frame that makes the display look like a piece of art when mounted on the wall. The SUHD TV JS9000 also has a soft, textured shirring design on the rear of the display, giving the TV a premium look and stylish edge when viewed from any angle.

New Smart TV Redefines the Future Entertainment Experience

As of this year, all of Samsung’s Smart TVs, including the new SUHD TVs, will be powered by Tizen – an open-source platform that supports web standards for TV app development. With Tizen, Samsung’s new Smart TV platform not only has a multitude of new features, but also a more intuitive UI, a more integrated entertainment experience, and more ways to access content than ever before.

  • The new user interface for Samsung’s Smart Hub is more responsive and playful. It is simplified to just one screen, displaying consumers’ most recent content and tailored recommendations for even more entertainment options.
  • With Quick Connect, Samsung Smart TVs automatically recognise selected Samsung smartphones once paired via BLE (Bluetooth® Low Energy) technology. Consumers can share video content from their Samsung smartphone to their Smart TV with the press of a button. Also, users can watch TV through their mobile devices without any apps or complicated pre-settings.
  • Samsung Smart TV owners can use the pre-set function to wake up more easily with Briefing on TV. Samsung Smart TVs now act as an alarm and sync up with Samsung mobile devices to turn on and display important information such as the time, weather and consumers’ schedules.
  • With all Samsung TVs poised to become Internet of Things devices by 2017, Tizen’s compatibility with other devices establishes Samsung’s Smart TVs as the control centre of any Smart Home.

Video: #Samsung Unveil The History of #Galaxy S Series of #Smartphones

When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge to the world on March 1 it was a pivotal moment for Samsung’s series of smartphones under the Galaxy S label. With the Galaxy S6 and the S6 edge, the company has taken smartphone design to new heights, continuing the Galaxy S tradition of delivering ingenious, mold-breaking design that is innovative, eye-catching and simply beautiful.

Galaxy S6 and S6 edge aren’t invincible, but they are capable of taking some hits – even when they fall on their sides or backs. The 6013 aluminum metal frame is designed to hit the surface before the glass upon fall to protect the display – even Galaxy S6 edge. Both Galaxy S6 and S6 edge feature Gorilla Glass 4, one of the toughest glasses available on mobile devices. Also, the components like the frame, glass, bracket, etc are structured to share the shock from first and follow-up impacts, ultimately reducing the possibility of breakage.

Click here to view first customer from other Singapore Telco.

 

In conjunction with today’s launch, Singtel (stock quote: Z74.SI) announced the launch of Wavee, a next-generation IP-based communications app that allows users to make high-quality voice and video calls, and send instant messages. Singtel is the first mobile operator in Southeast Asia to launch such a service.

 

Singtel’s Wavee, all-in-one communication app

With Wavee, users can:

– Make high quality voice, VoIP and video calls, send instant messages and SMSes

– Set up chat groups

– Attach photos, videos, sketches, audio files and documents to messages

– Share a location– either their current location or a place on the map

– Multi-task – sending messages and files while on a voice call

Android users have the option to integrate SMSes into their Wavee message inbox – choosing Wavee as their default messaging app directs all SMSes to the app, reducing the need to toggle between the two. Singtel iPhone users will soon be able to enjoy this feature, enabling friends on both platforms to chat using one central inbox.

 

The app is supported on all devices equipped with Android 4.1 and above, and iOS 7 and above, and is available for free download on the Android Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

SingTel, Samsung and Ericsson unveil world’s fastest mobile service for smartphones

Singapore 19 August 2014 – SingTel, in collaboration with Samsung and Ericsson, today broke new ground in the mobile industry by unveiling the world’s first commercial 300Mbps 4G LTE-Advanced service for smartphones.

 

The service will be available from 23 August 2014 when SingTel launches the Samsung GALAXY S5 4G+, the first handset globally to be compatible with 4G LTE-Advanced networks. Another compatible smartphone, the Samsung GALAXY Alpha 4G+, will be available from SingTel in September 2014.

 

Mr Tay Yeow Lian, SingTel’s Managing Director of Networks, said: “From streaming videos to web surfing and uploading selfies, customers are doing more with their smartphones. With this launch, SingTel customers will be the first in the world to enjoy the benefits of the fastest phone on the fastest network.”

 

“We are constantly enhancing our networks with the latest technologies to provide our customer with the best possible experience for today’s increasingly bandwidth-hungry applications,” he said.

 

Network now covers more than half of Singapore

SingTel has been working with its mobile network equipment provider, Ericsson, to rapidly expand its 4G LTE-Advanced network across Singapore.

 

Street level coverage now extends to more than 55 per cent of the island, including areas such as Orchard, the CBD, Shenton Way, City Hall, Ang Mo Kio, Tampines, Jurong, Telok Blangah and Woodlands. (Please refer to the coverage map in Annex 1 for details).

 

Mr Tay said: “We have accelerated our network roll out programme and are on track to achieve nationwide outdoor coverage by the first quarter of 2015.”

Indoor coverage is currently available at 29 busy locations such as Plaza Singapura, Bugis Junction, Suntec City, Raffles City, Tampines Mall and Changi Airport. (Please refer to Annex 2 for details.)

 

Handset pricing

Customers can purchase the Samsung GALAXY S5 4G+ and Samsung GALAXY Alpha 4G+ with a mobile plan from SingTel’s retail outlets or online shop (www.singtelshop.com).

  Combo 1 Combo 2 Combo 3 Combo 4 Combo 6 Combo 12
Samsung GALAXY S5 4G+ handset price $688 $588 $278 $178 $78 $0
Samsung GALAXY Alpha 4G+  handset price  Prices to be announced at a later date

 

“Samsung is proud to unveil the first 4G LTE-Advanced smart phones in Singapore. We recognise that consumers aspire to do more, and what matters most to them is technology that helps them live the lifestyle they desire and gives them the quickest access to their apps and social networks. With devices like the Samsung GALAXY S5 4G+, consumers will be at the forefront of technology – and be able to use a smart phone that pairs powerful hardware with the fastest download speeds,” said Ms Irene Ng, Vice President, Regional Marketing, Samsung Asia Pte Ltd.”

 

Mr Raymond Soh, Head of Engagement Practices, Singapore & Brunei, Ericsson, said: “By building high performance mobile networks, SingTel provides its customers with mobile services that enrich their lives. Apps on smartphones and tablets are increasingly becoming the way we navigate our day and Carrier Aggregation ensures that customers always get the best experience on-the-go, even at cell edges.”

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Rumour

Basically, I can sum up the below 6 min video into 1 sentence. “Faster processor, more vibrant graphic and better camera quality.”

However, I will be looking forward on the support for LTE 300mbps but the fact that most of the Telcos around the globe has yet to roll up LTE 300mbps. I will think that Samsung will be rolling out several versions to cater for different market (as well as maximising their profit)

 

Cloud Solution for your mobile device – Samsung HomeSync

Take a look on the passer-by on the street. Observe the commuters on the train. It is not hard to observe that almost everyone you see out there carries a mobile phone. We have done so much thing on our phone these days and it is not a rocket science for me to conclude that users usually face issue on the lack of disk space on the phone.

Samsung, being the world’s largest mobile phone maker, has a solution for this – Samsung HomeSync.

Here is the key features of the Samsung HomeSync.

  • 1TB drive can help users sync to multiple devices, providing shared or private storage for all your content.
  • Allows users to stream content from their GALAXY device wirelessly to the TV – letting them watch, see and use all home videos, photos and apps, at a full HD 1080p.
  • also enables new ways to interact with content via the control modes enabled wirelessly on the phone.

Take a look on the video for a clear picture on how it works. Currently, the device is available at the RPP SGD498.
