Samsung Rewards for Samsung Pay

Samsung today also announced the launch of Samsung Rewards for Samsung Pay, the secure and easy-to-use mobile payment service that can be used to make purchases almost anywhere10 in Singapore. The first to launch in the Southeast Asia region, the launch of the new loyalty programme for the company’s flagship mobile payment service in the country follows its initial roll-out in U.S. and South Korea, in November 2016 and March 2017 respectively. In appreciation of the positive uptake of the mobile payment service by consumers, Samsung Rewards aims to provide Samsung Pay users with a more rewarding payment experience when making their purchases.

 

Samsung Rewards is a tiered loyalty programme specially curated for Samsung Pay users, where consumers can earn points from their transactions, which can then be redeemed for additional rewards in the form of gift vouchers from participating merchants or used to participate in the in-app games such as Spin-the-Wheel or Flip-a-Card for additional instant wins. Consisting of three loyalty tiers – Gold, Silver and Bronze – users can level up across the tiers after meeting a target number of transactions. With each level up achieved in the Samsung Rewards programme, users can get to earn more points per transaction, reaping additional rewards in return.

Samsung Rewards will be available on Samsung Pay from 15 September 2017, which is accepted at the vast majority of merchants in Singapore. Consumers may also try out the mobile payment service at the Samsung Pay Café, which will be exclusively showcased at Galaxy Studio from 9 September to 29 October 2017, 11am to 9pm daily.

Press Release – Precision and Elegance Enhanced: Casio Singapore Launches New OCEANUS OCW-G1100

Equipped with GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor Technology, Dual Coil Motor and a completely new hue of blue – Precise timekeeping anywhere in the world has never been easier and more elegant with the OCEANUS OCW-G1100

Singapore, 21 March 2015: Casio Singapore has announced the launch of the OCEANUS OCW-G1100, the latest generation model from the OCEANUS line of solar powered, radio-controlled metal timepieces. Encased in full titanium, the sleek OCW-G1100 is fit with Casio’s proprietary and world’s first GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor Technology and a Dual Coil Motor for increased precision and functionality.

A must-have for discerning travellers, the OCW-G1100 offers swift access to precise world time adjustments, while its dual-toned sapphire crystal bezel and striking blue design accents make it a stylish accessory for both the airport and the boardroom.


Enhanced Precision in Timekeeping for the Globetrotter

The OCW-G1100 features Casio’s pioneering and world’s first GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor Technology that harnesses both Global Positioning System (GPS) signals as well as radio-wave calibration signals from six satellite towers around the world for precise timekeeping anywhere in the world.

The OCW-G1100 is also engineered with a high-torque Dual Coil Motor that powers the hands of the inset dial at the 6 o’clock position to swiftly rotate clockwise or counter-clockwise once the World Time Function is activated. In addition, wearers will be able to nimbly switch between world and home time displays, enabling frequent travellers to multi-task effectively across time zones.

Elegant Design Enhancements for the Stylish Gentleman

The OCW-G1100 boasts a unique two-toned blue and black sapphire crystal bezel which helps make a distinction between varying Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) zones. The right side of the bezel is accented in a remarkable blue hue achieved with a vapour deposition technique and indicates time zones ahead of UTC, while the left side rendered in black indicates time zones behind UTC. While extremely functional, this captivating colour transition is also designed to resemble the earth’s blue atmosphere transitioning into the darkness of space while the index marks, inset dial rings and indicators within the watch face are in three additional distinct hues of blue to complete a harmonious arrangement of blue accents.  

Utilising a gemstone synthesis and crystallisation technology, the second hand of the watch is embellished with the tough allure of recrystallized blue sapphire to add brilliance with each ticking movement, adding to the sophistication of the OCEANUS OCW-G1100.

The inner and outer surface of the dual sapphire crystal watch face is also treated with a non-reflective coating, enabling wearers to achieve greater readability and visibility at all times.

Pricing and Availability

The elegantly designed OCEANUS OCW-G1100 is available at a Suggested Retail Price of SGD$2,799.00, and will retail at the G-FACTORY PREMIUM store at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, G FACTORY stores  at ION and JEM, as well as Casio Singapore’s exclusive retailer, Cortina Watch Chinatown Point.

With built-in optical image stabilisation (OIS) to eliminate shakes and blurred shots, and powered by a high-performance quad-core Intel® Atom processor with 4GB RAM for ultra-fast performance, the ZenFone Zoom, according to ASUS, promises to pack DSLR-style shooting experiences into a metal unibody that tapers to a mere 5mm making it easier to bring around especially during holiday travels.

3X Optical Zoom and OIS, 10-element Lens, Real Tone Flash and Laser Focus

ZenFone Zoom is the world’s thinnest optical zoom smartphone, with a 13MP PixelMaster rear camera and 3X lens in a body that measures just 5mm at the edges. The innovative 10-element digital eye was created by the optics experts at Hoya. Glass, synthetic and prismatic lenses are meticulously configured in a dual-prism periscope arrangement to maximise incoming light and capture the best possible photo quality. Equipped with a built-in OIS, it ensures sharper, steadier shots every time even at maximum 3X optical magnification.

Furthermore, the rear camera features a dual-LED Real Tone flash to create the most natural illumination for indoor portraits, generating the perfect combination of yellow and white to capture life-like colours and skin tones. ZenFone Zoom’s rear lens also has a laser auto-focus function to point and shoot with total clarity in just 0.03 seconds.

Periscopic Design, Pro Results and Premium Finish

The ZenFone Zoom was meticulously created to be the world’s thinnest optical zoom smartphone with ASUS engineers rotating the ZenFone Zoom’s lens mechanism to create a compact, intricately-calibrated periscope-style camera in a smartphone. Coupled with a Panasonic SmartFSI® image sensor, the ZenFone Zoom captures more light and more colour, revealing detail and beauty in both natural and low-light compositions that other smartphone cameras will never see.

The ZenFone Zoom’s design takes its cue from the look and feel of professional DSLR cameras, with dedicated buttons for shooting and recording. Its strong uni-body frame is precision-crafted to a metallic finish that is smooth to the touch, with a choice of premium Pure Black or sleek Ceramic White on the rear, plus diamond-cut edges to create four stunning patterns across the back and sides. The ZenFone Zoom even has an integrated a safety loop and many stylish strap options, for confident shooting from any angle.

The intuitive ZenUI Camera app makes it a breeze to capture professional-quality photographs. ASUS-exclusive Super Resolution mode applies multi-frame-fusion technology to create incredibly-detailed photos. Four high-resolution 13MP shots are fused to create a single image of with clarity that’s four times (4X) greater than a single shot. In either night time or day time, the ZenFone Zoom captures more detail and less noise and Super Resolution shots of up to 52MP.

In addition, the ZenFone Zoom excels at macro photography, enabling extreme close-ups as near as 5cm (2in) to reveal new and unseen worlds of detail. It also allows users to customise their camera features with one tap through the Manual mode, allowing instant adjustment of shutter speed, exposure value, white balance, ISO and a host of other professional-grade settings.

High performance: 64-bit quad-core power, 4GB RAM and Full HD IPS display

The ZenFone Zoom’s 64-bit quad-core Intel Atom processor carefully balances brilliant performance and superb power efficiency, empowered by Intel’s sophisticated 22nm Silvermont architecture. Intel’s new Tri-Gate transistors have three times (3X) more surface area than planar transistors, enabling the flow of more electrons that increase computing performance and reduce power leakage. Furthermore, coupled with a huge 4GB of fast dual-channel DDR3 RAM, the ZenFone Zoom provides top performance in a smartphone.

Featuring a high-capacity 3000mAh battery and 60ms touch-response time, the ZenFone Zoom delivers fast and fluid performance anywhere and users are able to work and play from dawn to dusk. The ZenFone Zoom also features the exclusive ASUS BoostMaster technology for turbo-speed charging that takes the battery from zero to 60% in just 39 minutes.
