All-New Galaxy Masterpieces

The Forum showcased different mobile products, including Samsung Galaxy Fold, Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Gear Fit E and Galaxy Buds.
The first of its kind 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display on Galaxy Fold allows it to function both as a mobile and a tablet, folded into one. With end-users in mind, the Galaxy Fold was designed to offer the best experience while unveiling an entirely new category of smartphones. In an era of interactive living, the Galaxy wearables are a testament to Samsung’s efforts to enrich user experiences.
Smart Home Appliances
Samsung leads the way when it comes to smart home appliances and this year’s MENA Forum is reflective of this fact. Smart living is the way forward and Samsung’s latest products are in line with the company’s vision of simplifying lives through innovation. From state-of-the-art refrigerators to intelligent air-conditioners and the revolutionary laundry technology of the QuickDrive™ washing machine, Samsung has introduced a more refined experience to transform the lives of the users.
The triple cooling technology combined with the Flex Zone space, make Samsung 4 Door Refrigerator a class apart, providing ultimate freshness with optimized moisture and humidity levels. Samsung’s Side-by-Side 3 Door refrigerator lineup comes with Twin Cooling System and preset temperature modes, allowing the users to save energy while meeting the needs of capacity, design, and convenience.
Features like the SamsungAddWash – allowing users to add a clothing item during a wash cycle, intelligent laundry assistant – offering automatic recommendations for optimal washing cycles through AI – and the ability to be operated from connected devices make the QuickDrive™ washing machine a must have in your homes. It reduces the washing times by up to 50% thanks to the innovative technologies.

With all these top-notch products, Samsung has once again set the bar very high for its competitors to follow. The launch of these latest products definitely provides Samsung with a competitive advantage and it will be interesting to see how others follow in its footsteps.
