It's one’s loyal sidekick, link to the ever-changing world and a constant source of entertainment. Oh, yes, the user can also use it to make phone calls. And because it’s such a vital tool, shouldn’t one invest in a top-of-the-line smartphone?
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are highly intelligent gizmos designed for busy folks on the move. More than that, the Samsung Galaxy Plus features an assortment of companion devices and services — further enrich your life by using it for work, play or secure shopping.
Work X Play
Business travellers, who work from hotel rooms, airport lounges and wherever their day takes them, will find the DeX Station a boon. Enjoy a desktop-like experience on a TV screen or monitor screen by placing the Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ in the DeX Station, a unique docking station that connects to screen, keyboard and mouse. Files and apps can be easily accessed and the user can now plough through reports and dispatch emails in a more comfortable manner, just as he/she would at his/her desk in the office.
Toggling between apps and working on multiple files concurrently is a breeze as the DeX Station supports multitasking. If one needs to respond to a text message or take a call while working, click on the taskbar at the bottom of the computer screen to type a reply or receive the call.
Corporate executives working on sensitive documents can do so with confidence, thanks to the Samsung Knox security platform, which allows them to keep sensitive files in a Secure Folder (accessible only with an authentication) on their Galaxy S8 or S8+. Beyond work, the DeX Station can also enhance the user’s gaming experience and YouTube™ viewing by taking his/her favourite game and YouTube™ videos respectively to a bigger screen.
Carrying a wallet stuffed with credit, debit and loyalty cards can be a chore, especially when one is travelling, so switch to digital mobile wallet Samsung Pay. Just activate Samsung Pay, add your cards and leave those bulky wallets behind!
Samsung Pay is protected by the award-winning* Samsung Knox, a defence-grade security platform used by governments and major enterprises around the world. Users can shop and pay with assurance as Samsung Knox keeps hackers, viruses and malware at bay.
For added protection, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ even include an Iris Scanner for biometric authentication. As irises are impossible to duplicate, this makes Samsung Pay even safer than physical cards.
The Gear VR with Controller, powered by Oculus, allows for virtual reality (VR) immersion in videos and games. What’s more, the user can pick up new skills with the interactive virtual reality education tools. Featuring a wide 101° field of view and improvements to minimise distortion and motion sickness, the Gear VR headset can be kept on for a longer period.
Lightweight, ergonomic and responsive, the new Gear VR Controller can be used as a remote control or a gamepad for annihilating cyber fiends. With over 600 apps** to choose from, one’s entertainment options come with variety and thrills. The user will have fun with apps, games and videos created for his Gear VR headset. Be mesmerised by Cirque du Soleil’s Zarkana in full 360° glory, or go around the world with VISO Places, where Italian museums and England’s legendary Stonehenge are open to virtual tourists.
The Gear VR with Controller even lets one play games, watch movies or hang out with friends in the Oculus Room without leaving the comfort of one’s base.
Take 360° photos and videos to new heights with the lightweight and compact Gear 360 (2017). An 8.4-megapixel image sensor and dual camera lens let the user capture 360° photos and videos in amazing detail — nothing is missed out!
Thanks to the 360° 4K video recording capability of the Gear 360 (2017), the user can capture milestone moments like a child’s first steps and stream it live to loved ones via Facebook, YouTube™ or Samsung VR. Just pair the Gear 360 (2017) camera with Samsung S8 or S8+, or link it to a PC, and standby for live broadcast***.
