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.

Bupa Arabia makes its mark at Hajj Hackathon

Bupa Arabia for Cooperative Insurance participated as the health care sponsor in the recently concluded Hajj Hackathon in Jeddah. 

The three-day event, which has been declared as the biggest hackathon in the world, was organized by the Saudi Federation for Cybersecurity, Programming and Drones (SAFCSP) and gathered leading developers and programmers to enhance the experience of millions of pilgrims in the Kingdom. 

Bupa Arabia said its strategic partnership in this grand national event is of great significance. Hajj Hackathon brought together thousands of global talents from around the world with a clear objective in line with Saudi Vision 2030. The vision aims at the creation of a vibrant community that enjoys a healthier lifestyle, in addition to increasing the Kingdom’s capacity to welcome more pilgrims so that the holy city can accommodate 6 million Hajj and 30 million Umrah pilgrims by 2030.

Ali Sheneamar, chief business development officer at Bupa Arabia, said: “We are pleased to be part of the Hajj Hackathon in partnership with the Saudi Federation for Cybersecurity, Programming and Drones. We are also keen to support the Kingdom’s drive to motivate Saudi Arabia’s young talents and enrich the Hajj experience using unique innovative solutions. As we look forward to this opportunity, we join hands with the government’s direction for a prosperous pilgrimage journey by setting the foundations for local potential who play a pivotal role in the Kingdom’s current winds of change.”

Bupa Arabia welcomed all participants during the event at its health lounge and ran health checkups involving several medical tests. These included diabetes and blood pressure tests, and diagnostic eye and dental examinations. The company’s staff members were on hand providing valuable guidance and advice on health, diet, and sports, among other topics.

Bupa Arabia also displayed its e-services and digital platforms during the event. Saudi Arabia’s first Hajj Hackathon became the largest ever and entered the Guinness Book of World Records. It brought together 3,000 developers from 50 countries handpicked from among 20,000 applicants.
