Live Unplanned with the New Samsung Galaxy A Series



Yours truly was over at Aloft to check out the Samsung Galaxy A series media launch and was surprised to enter a beautiful ballroom converted into a glamping site instead as Samsung Malaysia Electronics introduces two addition to its latest Galaxy A Series (2017) range, the Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017)!

The Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017) are the latest additions to the Malaysian market and they complement the needs of connected millennials who crave spontaneity and seek life’s pleasures in the most fulfilling way. And what I am impressed with and what I like most would be for the first time ever in the Galaxy A Series these gorgeous babies are dust and water resistant ...

The Galaxy A Series (2017) are the first in Samsung’s mid-range smartphones to carry an IP68 dust and water resistance rating, and promises uncompromised non-stop fun. Its IP68 rated dust and water resistance simply spells out worry-free impromptu days out in the sun and rain, on the beach or by the pool!

These powerful devices also come equipped with enhanced 16MP front and rear camera with f1.9 lens and Light+ Camera feature for sharper images and beautiful shots even in lowlight or at night – an incredibly handy feature when you least expect it, and something I REALLY NEED....

Selfie queens and kings would also be delighted to know that the Galaxy A Series (2017) has a Floating Camera Button which can be moved freely to anywhere on the screen for even more convenience with selfies!

These smartphones also boasts vivid Full HD 5.7-inch and 5.2-inch Super AMOLED screen displays – perfect for immersive gaming on the go or even binge-watching k-dramas or k-pop videos on YouTube! All you need to do is just whip out your Galaxy A Series (2017) and enjoy the flagship-like immersive experience and performance!

The Galaxy A Series (2017) is also equipped with Samsung Pay, a new alternative for making purchases at places where credit, debit and prepaid cards are accepted. It is an easy-to-use and secure mobile payment service compatible with NFC (Near Field Communication) and MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) terminals. Samsung Pay is currently performing an open beta test for selected Maybank Visa cardholders, with more banks such as CIMB Mastercard, Citibank Mastercard & Visa, Standard Chartered Mastercard & Visa to be made available soon.

The devices also come preloaded with mySamsung, Samsung’s own mobile app that helps users set up, manage and optimise their Samsung experience and stay updated with the latest Samsung offers and promotions. 

Another app to look out for is Samsung Milk Music, a downloadable app for Samsung users only that offers access to a wide range of personalised curated stations so users can listen to all their favourite music right from their Galaxy A devices!
