The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL - Se­cu­rity

Digicel launched this week the lat­est and hottest smart­phones from Sam­sung’s Galaxy flag­ship line, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. These smart­phones push the bound­aries of tra­di­tional de­vices with their seam­less hard­ware de­sign and va­ri­ety of new ser­vice of­fer­ings. With the in­tro­duc­tion of mul­ti­ple ser­vices and apps, as well as a stun­ning In­fin­ity Dis­play for an en­hanced view­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, the Galaxy S8 brings a new level of func­tion­al­ity and con­ve­nience, open­ing up a galaxy of pos­si­bil­i­ties.


The Sam­sung Galaxy S8 is be­ing billed as the best phone Sam­sung has ever made – yes, ever! With a com­plete re­design of the hand­set from the in­side out, start­ing with its ‘In­fin­ity Dis­play’ and bezel-less de­sign which forms a smooth, con­tin­u­ous sur­face with no but­tons or harsh an­gles, the re­sult is a truly im­mer­sive view­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with­out dis­trac­tions that makes mul­ti­task­ing more con­ve­nient. The Galaxy S8’s com­pact de­sign en­ables com­fort­able one­handed op­er­a­tion and comes with Corn­ing® Go­rilla® Glass 5 on both the front and back for dura­bil­ity. With dig­i­tal and mo­bile tech­nol­ogy grow­ing at a rapid pace, stor­ing, shar­ing and ac­cess­ing huge amounts of per­sonal and cor­po­rate data through mo­bile de­vices has be­come se­cond na­ture, mak­ing top level se­cu­rity and pri­vacy a ne­ces­sity in a hand­set – and the Galaxy S8 has the high­est level out there. It car­ries a face recog­ni­tion iris scan­ner, fin­ger­print scan­ner, pat­tern pad and pass­word and PIN ca­pa­bil­i­ties giv­ing users max­i­mum se­cu­rity op­tions based on their pref­er­ence. That said, un­lock­ing the Galaxy S8 and all its ca­pa­bil­i­ties is as sim­ple as say­ing, “Hello Bixby”.

In­tro­duc­ing Bixby

With the idea of cre­at­ing an un­break­able bond be­tween a hand­set and its user where the hand­set un­der­stands its user as much as its user un­der­stands it, Sam­sung is launch­ing its new smart as­sis­tant, Bixby. Bixby talks, sees, lis­tens and al­lows users to do ev­ery­thing on the phone by voice – com­pletely rev­o­lu­tion­is­ing the in­ter­ac­tion be­tween user and hand­set. One of its key fea­tures is Bixby Vi­sion which iden­ti­fies any­thing the cam­era points at, whether it’s a build­ing, an im­age, an ob­ject or even a per­son.

Digicel Group Chief Com­mer­cial Of­fi­cer Peter Ram­pling com­mented, “What are cus­tomers look­ing for in a de­vice? Sleek de­sign, su­per­fast func­tion­al­ity, awe­some cam­era qual­ity and HD res­o­lu­tion, right? Well, the Galaxy S8 pro­vides that and so much more.”

He con­tin­ued: “What is even bet­ter about this de­vice is its com­pat­i­bil­ity with our su­per­fast LTE net­work. We have been fu­ture-proof­ing our net­works to de­liver the fastest and most re­li­able con­nec­tiv­ity in the Caribbean and Cen­tral Amer­ica re­gion and, with this de­vice, cus­tomers will be able to con­nect with friends and fam­ily in the blink of an eye.”

“The Sam­sung Galaxy S8 ush­ers in a new era of smart­phone de­sign and fan­tas­tic new ser­vices, open­ing up new ways to ex­pe­ri­ence the world,” said Jorge López, Re­gional Sales Man­ager of Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics. “The Galaxy S8 is our tes­ta­ment to re­gain­ing your trust by re­defin­ing what’s pos­si­ble in safety, and marks a new mile­stone in Sam­sung’s smart­phone legacy.”

Launched in Ja­maica on May 11, the Sam­sung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be avail­able in Digicel stores across the re­gion in the com­ing days.
