Samsung Electronics has unveiled Galaxy Note5 in Kenya. The company has also partnered with telecommunications provider Safaricom for the distribution of the devices.
The device which has a 5.7” Quad HD Super AMOLED screen represents both partners commitment to the big screen smartphone market, which Samsung introduced in 2011 with the original Galaxy Note.
The device blends form and function with pioneering features, including the best screen technology, the most advanced camera for high quality photos and videos, the latest fast wireless and wired charging, and an incredibly powerful processor.
With increased 4GB RAM, the Note5 offers the most powerful capacity and processing power on the market, enabling users to enjoy more seamless multi-tasking, keep up with messages, post updates to social networks faster, and enjoy graphic-heavy games without suffering lag time.
“The Samsung’s newly redesigned Note is a powerful productivity tool that can be employed for multiple tasks. Its advanced display technology and better S Pen functionality enhances the user’s content experience,” said Samsung East Africa Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Robert Ngeru.
The Galaxy Note5’s design is inspired by the Galaxy S6 and ergonomically fits in one hand with a narrower bezel and curved back. The flat screen is great to write on and the curved shape makes it easier to use the phone with one hand.
“It is a great honour that Samsung has selected to have us be the first ones to stock the Samsung Note5 smartphone in the Kenyan market exclusively for four weeks. This is an illustration of the confidence that our partners have in our extensive distribution channels and our people who delight in offering excellent customer service at all times,” said James Muteti, the Head of Retail and Distribution.
The all new 5th generation S Pen offers improved writing capabilities and a variety of practical tools. Users can now quickly jot down ideas or information when the screen is off without even unlocking the phone. Users can also annotate on PDF files and capture lengthy web articles or long images at once via ‘Scroll capture.’
“We continue to integrate the S Pen with our devices because we know that our consumers love the option of a simple, intuitive, and flexible way to interact with our mobile devices. Users can access features faster and write with greater sensitivity and sharper precision.”Mr. Ngeru said.
Note5 users can expect to share the moments of their lives through photos and video and Samsung is enabling that desire with improved video capabilities.
These include Steady Video, which provides Video Digital Image Stabilization on both the front and rear cameras for sharp, crisp video on-the-go, and Video Collage Mode, which allows users to record and edit short videos easily in various frames and effects.
It also feature 4K(UHD) video filming and Live Broadcast, which lets users instantly live streams Full HD video straight from the phone to any individual, group of contacts, or even the public through YouTube Live.
