Riyadh – MENA Herald: KSA customers eager to get their hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 can now pre-book their device at axiom, one of the first mobile retailers in the Kingdom to make the highly anticipated device within reach of the country’s early adopters.
What’s more – those who pre-order will get a special value-pack deal, including Samsung’s stylish ‘Level U’ wireless headphones, and stand a chance to be among five lucky winners of a free Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
The pre-booking offer comes more than a week ahead of the device’s United States’ launch and nearly a month before it will go on sale in Europe. Shoppers are advised to pre-book their device well in advance, as stores are expecting unprecedented levels of demand.
Customers can pre-order their device for SR 200 at any of axiom’s showrooms across the Kingdom, or by paying the full retail price of SR 2,899 online at http://ksa.axiomtelecom.com.
“We want our customers to be among the first to experience the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, and this pre-booking offer avails them that opportunity,” said Jamal Al Bugmi, General Manager of axiom KSA. “Bringing the latest that mobile technology has to offer is our promise at axiom, and Samsung has once again raised the bar with the Galaxy Note 7. It combines stylish design and robust construction with the highest levels of security and advanced functions that power users will appreciate.”
The new phone replaces the Galaxy Note 5, bringing the name in line with the Galaxy S7 which was released in March.
Among the Galaxy Note 7’s features is a new biometric security option, with an infrared iris scanner that can lock or unlock the screen with a glance from either eye, although fingerprint scanner or PIN remain options.
Specifications feature the same premium design and build quality that has made the Galaxy S7 Edge so popular, including 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, expandable via a microSD slot. For connectivity, it is the first Samsung phone to use the new USB-C connector. It shares the Galaxy S7 Edge’s water resistance rating, up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes, while the integrated stylus is also waterproof and can work on the screen even when it is wet.
The 5.7 inch quad HD screen is ready for the new high dynamic range video standard being introduced on high-end televisions, and its curved edges make the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 one of the narrowest phones with a screen this size.
The stylus, a popular feature on large Samsung phones, is more precise than the previous models, and elements of the Android Marshmallow operating system are customized for stylus use. Social media users will appreciate one of these added functions, which allows them to turn videos into GIFs directly from the screen.
Customers who pre-book their device from axiom can also benefit from the retailer’s value-added services, which include Extended Warranty, Damage Protection, Priority Repair, and Pick-up and Delivery for Phone Repairs, ensuring uninterrupted connectivity.
