Yesterday, 50 fans of the Samsung Galaxy Note series were among the first in Singapore to get their hands on the long-awaited Galaxy Note8. Held in an exclusive event at Galaxy Studio at VivoCity, these consumers were also the first in Singapore to experience the varied offerings in Samsung’s ecosystem of products and services, such as the newly launched Gear Sport, Gear Fit2 Pro and Gear IconX.
“I’ve owned every Galaxy Note that Samsung has ever produced,” said excited fan Whye Mun, who was the first person in line to receive her Galaxy Note8 in Singapore. “I really enjoy the Galaxy Note series because of the display screen and S Pen. The technology behind Samsung’s Note series is always getting better and I’m really excited to start using my Galaxy Note8!”
“Samsung has great creativity and innovation when it comes to meeting user’s needs and habits and this is showcased in features like the S Pen,” said Ivan Chua, 52, a Regional Director of Sales and Marketing who was one of the first few to get his hands on the Galaxy Note8. “I use the S Pen very actively in my line of work, whether writing in English or Mandarin and I’m looking forward to trying out the new translation feature on the Galaxy Note8 with the S Pen!”
The rest of Singapore did not have long to wait as well! Starting today, consumers who had successfully pre-ordered the Galaxy Note8 will get to start the collection of their pre-ordered Galaxy Note8 devices, from M1, Singtel, StarHub, Samsung Experience Stores and the Galaxy Studio, one week ahead of its retail launch in Singapore. Consumers who successfully pre-ordered the Galaxy Note8 online at major consumer electronics stores (Best Denki, Courts, Hachi, Harvey Norman and Newstead) and Lazada Singapore will also be receiving their new devices which will be delivered to them.
