Samsung rolls out Galaxy Tab S in Malaysia

- ‘Super Amoled’ tablet combines advanced display technology with premium content
- Range of exclusive regional content, plus localised content for Malaysian users
SAMSUNG Malaysia Electronics Sdn Bhd has announced the domestic debut of its lightest and thinnest tablet to date, the Galaxy Tab S, on the back of its global showcase in New York City recently.
The ‘Super Amoled’ (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) tablet combines the most advanced display technology with a full range of premium content for an unrivalled entertainment experience, Samsung Malaysia Electronics claimed.
The Galaxy Tab S is also powered with enhanced productivity features for effortless multitasking, all housed in a stylish yet practical design, the company said in a statement.
“The tablet is becoming a popular personal viewing device for enjoying content, which makes the quality of the display a critical feature,” said Samsung Malaysia Electronics president Lee Dong Yong.
“With the launch of the Galaxy Tab S, Samsung is setting the industry bar higher for the entire mobile industry. It will provide consumers with a visual and entertainment experience that brings colours to life, beautifully packaged in a sleek and ultra-portable mobile device,” he claimed.
The device features additional Samsung screen technologies that go beyond hardware specifications, the company claimed. Its ‘Adaptive Display’ ensures the best visual experience anywhere, anytime by intelligently adjusting gamma, saturation, and sharpness based on the application being viewed, the colour temperature of the viewing environment and ambient lighting.
Pre-set professional modes – Amoled Cinema and Amoled Photo – also let users manually adjust the display settings for bright, dynamic results for both video and photo content.
Since Super Amoled technology doesn’t require a backlight, the Galaxy Tab S consumes less energy than comparative LCD (liquid crystal display) screens while maintaining a very portable design, the company claimed.
The Galaxy Tab S includes exclusive regional content via Samsung Seasons and Samsung Sportsflow.
Samsung Seasons enables consumers to subscribe to exclusive TV series such as Orphan Black, Doll & Em and Devious Maids at a monthly rate of US$6.50 per season, while Sportsflow features free sports content from Samsung.
Exclusive content available for Malaysians include [RM1 = US$0.31]:
- A free 12-month subscription to eight lifestyle magazine titles from SPH Magazines worth RM1,920.
- A free six-month subscription to The Star e-Paper worth RM150.
- Access to My Galaxy Music, in which consumers get to download up to 500 free songs within a six-month period.
- Pre-loaded Galaxy Life app, which is Samsung's consumer loyalty platform in a mobile app that offers consumers personalised, curated and exclusive content optimised especially for their devices on a weekly and monthly basis from 50 partners to date, with more than 120 offers and deals up to be redeemed.
