Arrival of Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition!

Saturday, October 28, 2017

Samsung Malaysia Electronics is proud to unveil the Galaxy Note Fan Edition, designed to deliver all key Galaxy Note features so loyal Note users can strike the perfect balance of work and play. The Galaxy Note Fan Edition, made especially for the dedicated Note community, is a new device that has been engineered with unused components from the Galaxy Note7.

“The Galaxy Note Fan Edition is Samsung’s way of showing its commitment to Note fans. We work
very closely with dedicated specialists to reuse and recycle unused components from the Note7 to
form the Galaxy Note Fan Edition. This is also our way of lessening the carbon footprint for our future generation. We would like to say thank you to our loyal Note fans for continuously supporting us through thick and thin. The Galaxy Note Fan Edition is for you”, said Mr KM Liew, Head of IT and Mobile Business, Samsung Malaysia Electronics.

Samsung assures that these are not refurbished Note 7 devices but new devices made using the unused components and materials. They have done some remodification to the Fan Edition Note 7 to ensure that there won't be issues with the batteries which caused the previous Note 7 to blow up.

The Galaxy Note Fan Edition, sporting an affordable price tag, is an entirely new device that inherits
the design and innovative functions and offers the same productivity and entertainment features of the
Note7. This includes an enhanced S Pen that boasts a pen tip of 0.7mm, mimicking a real pen to offer
users a smoother writing experience. The S Pen is also useful in translating foreign languages online,
and a hover-over function to translate words directly into the desired language.

Galaxy Note Fan Edition users can unlock their smartphone using biometric authentication technologies such as iris and fingerprint recognition, allowing for a more secure login. In addition to that, the Galaxy Note Fan Edition comes equipped with ‘Bixby Home’ and ‘Bixby Reminder’ to assist users in daily tasks and elevate the smartphone experience. With an IP68 rating, the Note Fan Edition’s body and S Pen are dust and water resistant to a maximum depth of 5 feet for up to 30 minutes.

Compared with the Note7, the Galaxy Note Fan Edition has an upgraded processor which makes it
capable in handling heavier computational lifting; and a new and safe 3,200mAh battery which is
compliant with Samsung’s 8 point safety check. The device has also met the safety standards of the
relevant industry and regulatory bodies and has been reviewed by leading independent quality
assurance experts to give Note users the extra peace of mind.

The key aesthetic features that set the Galaxy Note Fan Edition apart are its symmetrical edge design
and its ‘Fan Edition’ logo on the back. Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition will be available from 25 October 2017 onwards at all Samsung Experience Stores, authorised dealers and selected channel partners, retailing at the price of RM2,599.00 inclusive of GST. The Galaxy Note Fan Edition is available in 2 colours including Coral Blue and Black Onyx.

With the launch of the Galaxy Note Fan Edition, this would really spark interest in those who have always been a fan of the Note series. With the lower retail price compared to the Note 8, it does seem like this would be quite the competitor.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Malaysia Launch Roadshow

Sunday, October 08, 2017

Hi merry goers!

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has officially launched in Malaysia last week at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. The new Galaxy Note 8 features a refined design, an enhanced S Pen, a best-in-class dual camera and innovative entertainment and productivity capabilities to help people do bigger things.

The special appearance of Korea's Running Man ace, Song Ji-Hyo marked the grand launch which captured the attention of invited guests and sent the crowd into a rapturous cheer. Demonstrating a new form of communication using the Galaxy Note 8's newest S Pen feature, Live Message she expressed her excitement to every fan. Live Message allows you to reveal your unique personality and tell expressive stories. With the Galaxy Note8, you can now share animated texts or drawings across platforms that support animated GIFs. It’s a whole new way to communicate with the S Pen—adding lively and emotional connections that bring your messages to life.

The Galaxy Note 8 has the biggest screen ever on a Note device, yet its narrow body makes it comfortable to hold in one hand. The 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display lets you see more and scroll less. The Galaxy Note8 gives you more room to watch, read and draw—making it the ultimate multitasking smartphone. Note users have long been able to do more with Multi Window. With the Galaxy Note8, the new App Pair feature lets you create a custom pair of apps on the Edge Panel and simultaneously launch two apps with ease. Watch a video while messaging your friends or dial into a conference call with the number and agenda in front of you.

However, the feature that captured my heart from the Note series is the S Pen. Ever since its introduction, the S Pen has been one of the Note’s defining features. With the Galaxy Note8,
the enhanced S Pen unlocks entirely new ways to write, draw, and interact with the phone and
communicate with friends. It has a finer tip, improved pressure sensitivity, and features that enable
users to express themselves in ways that no other stylus or smartphone ever has. 

Those of you who have short term memory or what I call Dory memory like me, the Always on Display is an additional feature that will really help you. Off screen memo allows you to take up to 100 pages of notes as soon as you remove the S Pen. You can pin the notes to the Always on Display and make edits directly too. 

For overseas travels or when you come across a website in a foreign language, the improved S Pen
Translate feature lets you hover over text to quickly translate not only individual words, but entire
sentences in up to 71 languages, and instantly convert units and foreign currencies.

For most consumers, one of the things they look for when purchasing a new device is the camera. For more information, you can read up on my hands on experience for the Galaxy Note 8 camera during the Picture Perfect Workshop. The Galaxy Note8 is the first smartphone with two 12MP rear cameras with Dual Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) on both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses. The Galaxy Note8’s Live Focus feature lets you control the depth of field by allowing you to adjust the bokeh effect in preview mode and after you take the photo. 

The Galaxy Note8 is also equipped with an industry-leading 8MP Smart Auto Focus front-facing camera for sharp selfies and video chats.
Galaxy of Features and Services.

Of course, not forgetting other features like Water and Dust Resistance, Fast Wireless Charging, Biometric Security Authentication - including iris and fingerprint scanning and the 6GB AM, 10nm processor powerful performance and Bixby, your now hightech assistant.
