Samsung unveils Galaxy A8

As smartphone standards evolve, and the market for affordable, yet advanced smartphones continues to grow, Samsung has introduced the new Galaxy A8 — a dynamic smartphone with a midrange price tag.
The Galaxy A8 fits comfortably into the role of the contemporary companion for your everyday life, and is perfect for the adventurers, self-discovers and digital generation, giving you a smartphone that will capture the real you and every side of that adventure, while adapting to your individual needs. It is designed to enhance your lifestyle with a best-in-class camera, Samsung’s flagship Infinity Display, and a design built to last; it is the do-it-all device that everyone has been waiting for.
The electronics giant has released the following guide listing the features of Galaxy A8:
In the age of social media, we are taking and sharing more photos than ever — and with the best-in-class camera on the Galaxy A8, why should not we? Snap the perfect selfie with the 16MP+8MP F1.9 Dual Front Camera, which allows you to create a professional-grade portrait with an impressive bokeh effect. Or capture any scene or subject with the advanced 16MP F1.7 rear camera with improved low-light capability. No matter what you are shooting, your images will come out clear and crisp in lifelike detail with the Samsung Galaxy A8.
Samsung’s flagship Infinity Display has earned it recognition as a leading innovator in smartphone design — and for good reason. The Infinity Display enables an expanded screen that extends from side to side with an immersive 18.5:9 display ratio to provide an even wider cinematic viewing experience without increasing the size of the phone. Enjoy a beautiful and immersive viewing experience on the Galaxy A8, the first of the Galaxy A series to boast Samsung’s staple Infinity Display.
We take our smartphones with us everywhere we go, so we should be able to use them in any situation without a worry. With an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance, the Galaxy A8 is the phone that will work wherever life takes you — and with 2.5D glass on the front and a 3D curved glass panel on the back, it was designed with durability in mind. The Galaxy A8 can withstand your busy lifestyle, no matter where you are or what you are doing.

Events company sees KSA as market leader

  • My Events International is based in Malaysia and operates on three continents worldwide.
  • ‘Saudi Arabia is being renewed,’ says My Events International founder.

JEDDAH: A global events company has begun operations in Saudi Arabia with a plan to make the Kingdom and Vision 2030 the focus of a growing world market in event management. 

My Events International provides event management, marketing, and sponsor and sales management in sectors including banking, technology, health care and construction.

The Malaysia-based firm operates in India, Kuwait, the UK, Singapore, Nigeria — and now Saudi Arabia. 

The company’s Jeddah opening was attended by Khaled Almaeena, Al-Abeer director; My Events International Saudi Arabia manager Shahul Dawood; founder and president of My Events International, Mohammed Abudawood; and Malaysia’s consul general in Jeddah, Dato Mohamad Ali bin Selamat.

The opening also included the launch of Expo Malaysia, which will showcase the country overseas.

“Our partnership with My Events International will help create a new trademark in Saudi Arabia that compatible with Vision 2030 and the new changes that is bringing,” Almaeena said.

“We are proud to announce that we are organizing the Malaysia Expo, which promotes trade and investment between the two countries and will provide job opportunities for Saudi youth,” he said.

Dawood said: “Saudi Arabia is our fifth country to have a partnership. We have entered Saudi Arabia at the best time — most of the doors are opened for us, and people are encouraging and supportive. 

“We are also aiming to do a special program for women. We are not only an event managing company, but also a specialist in content creation and public private partnership.”

Abudawood said: “We are witnessing a country that is being renewed. Youth represents 70 percent of the Saudi community, and they are full of energy and new ideas, so talking about events and entertainment will help make this change happen.”

Selamat said: “Malaysia and Saudi Arabia are two countries with great potential in sectors such as tourism, as well as developing small and medium enterprises.

“My Events International has great significance in events development, and this partnership will help strengthen ties between Saudi Arabia and Malaysia, and promote economic relations as well.”
