South Korean electronics giant Samsung has unveiled its latest device in the Kenyan market, The Galaxy Note 8, targeting customers who need to get work done on-the-go.
The Seoul-based firm yesterday launched the device in Nairobi pushing its enhanced style pen usage and work capabilities, its dual lens camera, and innovative entertainment as the selling points to high-end consumers.
The device will retail at Sh104,999.
It will be available in various Samsung outlets, Safaricom shops, Fonexpress, Naivacom, Tuscom shops and authorised dealers countrywide in Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, Maple Gold and Deepsea Blue colours. Samsung Electronics East Africa head of mobile division Bob Asiyo said during the launch the phone is suitable for both personal and professional users.
“Diverse and demanding tasks are being done on smartphones, with the ability to effectively multitask on a single device becoming an essential requirement. The Galaxy Note 8 offers this convenience,” said Mr Asiyo.
The Note 8 device is a successor to the discontinued Galaxy Note 7.
A key feature of the device is its dual camera setup, which puts it in direct competition with Apple’s iPhone 7 plus that has a similar rear camera feature.
Both the rear cameras of Galaxy Note 8 are equipped with optical image stabilisation with live focus and dual capture.
The Note 8 device has a Samsung DeX which enables users to connect to a larger display unit, a keyboard and mouse, turning the device into a PC.
Users can shop, search for images and get details about nearby places with the Bixby’s image recognition technology.
