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.

Huawei hosts annual Middle East Partner Summit

Global ICT solutions provider Huawei recently hosted its annual Middle East Partner Summit in Dubai. Taking place under the theme “Leading New ICT, the Road to a Win-win Ecosystem,” the summit hosted participants from 12 countries across the Middle East. Participants had gathered to form a collaborative platform in order to explore the current requirements for a successful digital transformation and ushering in the artificial intelligence era, exchange ideas, share success stories and best practices, targeted at empowering Huawei’s channel partners in order to increase their ability to cater to the region’s increasingly demanding technology innovation needs, and to establish an open and collaborative ecosystem.
The full-day summit highlighted Huawei’s latest partner programs and outlined the company’s strategic plans for digitalization in the Middle East. Huawei’s channel strategy for 2018 centers on the empowerment of its channel partners to deliver the latest ICT solutions to their customers by embracing a collaborative, win-win approach to partners, competitors, and the industry as a whole.
In partnership with GAPP, a diamond sponsor of the summit, Huawei launched their GTM (“Go To Market”) Strategy, which focuses on catering to Middle East market requirements by building an enhanced service portfolio with GAPP serving as systems integrators.
“We see our long-term enterprise strategy in the region centered around building an ecosystem through which Huawei can help our Middle East channel partners meet their customers’ needs with enhanced connectivity and improved user experience, across different domains,” said Alaa El-Shimy, vice president and managing director, Huawei Enterprise Middle East. “Huawei advocates openness, collaboration, and shared success. Through joint innovation with our customers, partners, and peers, we are increasing the value of ICT in support of a more robust and mutually beneficial industry ecosystem. Our goal is a win-win situation for everyone, and we are dedicated to working together to establish mainstream standards and lay the foundations for this shared success.”
Bander Alfreih, chairman and CEO of GAPP, said: “Integrated, collaborative partnerships like the one we have announced with Huawei are exactly what we need to move the region forward on the path to digital transformation. We are incredibly excited to get to work on building this infrastructure together, and to see how quickly it will produce tangible results for the ecosystem at large, as well as the individual end customer. This will be how we define our success.”
