KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – 30 November, 2012 – Samsung Malaysia Electronics, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, has revolutionised visual communications through the introduction of the new Samsung GALAXY Camera. The camera is Samsung’s first truly Connected Camera by combining high-performance photography features with the freedom of 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, powered by an Android™ 4.1 (Jelly Bean) platform.

The Samsung GALAXY Camera enables users to shoot, enjoy, edit and share high-quality images and videos on-the-spot through a single device. The camera features the freedom of 3G connectivity and enhanced Wi-Fi capacity that is equipped with Dual Band and Channel Bonding that boosts the speed of connectivity. This opens up a world of near-limitless sharing and smartphone-like activities, especially for avid photographers who are active on social networking sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

Kwon Jae Hoon, Managing Director, Samsung Malaysia Electronics Sdn. Bhd. said, “The introduction of the Samsung GALAXY Camera epitomises how cameras have evolved over time.

Suren J Amarasekera, Maxis’ Joint Chief Operating Officer said, “We are seeing a shift in device usage trends, with an increasing number of customers having more than one device and multiple SIMs for their changing lifestyles.
