Samsung Electronics America, Inc. Launches Versatile and Powerful Notebook 7 Spin

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. announced availability of the Samsung Notebook 7 spin, a new laptop convertible 2-in-1 that easily converts into a tablet for business users who require flexibility both in the office and on the go. Available in 13.3- and 15.6-inch models, the new enterprise ready devices run Windows 10 Pro and come equipped with a number of features that enable users to work harder and better. The Notebook 7 spin is offered in two form factors. The 13.3-inch model is the device for office knowledge workers that need to collaborate, share ideas, and work across various teams and locations. Powered by an Intel® i5 processor and built with a 500GB hard drive, this model is perfect for users looking over Microsoft Word documents and presentations and driving the vision of their team. The 15.6-inch form factor, powered by an Intel® i7 processor, is built for business users who need every ounce of processing power, while enjoying the luxury of fast access to data. The combination of a one terabyte hard drive and 128GB SSD allows for quick boot up and optimal OS and application performance. This model is ideal for power users who need to seamlessly handle a multitude of tasks, while cutting down on load times, so they can do more at once. Both models run Windows 10 Pro, Microsoft’s most advanced and most powerful operating system for the office, to match every business users’ need for a device packed with necessary features and functionality to complete a task no matter where they are getting the job done. With one flip, the Notebook 7 spin uses Continuum to transform from laptop to tablet, while sporting a 360 degree touch display offering incredible viewing angles. Business users can write, design, and create with a full keyboard, then flip the screen to collaborate with co-workers or share a presentation from any angle. Windows 10 is Microsoft’s best and most secure operating system yet, and Windows 10 Pro provides added encryption and control options that are crucial for IT administrators. The Notebook 7 spin also works with Microsoft Office to help be more productive, and includes Cortana, Microsoft’s personal digital assistant, and BitLocker to help protect the device if ever lost or stolen. The Notebook 7 spin will be available from July 18 through select Samsung resellers and channel partners.

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. Announces Availability of Samsung SERIF TV to the U.S. this Summer

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. announced that the Samsung SERIF TV is coming to the U.S. this summer. A true collaboration with acclaimed Parisian design duo Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, the Samsung SERIF TV redefines the television experience. It will be available starting in August at high-end design-centric retailers including Vitra, Bo Concept NY and Ligne Roset stores in major markets. On July 13, 2016, it is available for presale through Samsung.com and the MoMA Design Store. The partnership marks the first time that Samsung has aligned with a designer to not only re-envision how the TV looks but also how it functions. From top to bottom, inside and out, the Bouroullec Brothers re-imagined every aspect, from its minimal yet solid exterior form to its refined user interface and even its simplified remote control. The Samsung SERIF TV is just as beautiful to watch as it is to experience, with the best picture quality available in a 40” TV. Drawing inspiration from the simple elegance of typography, the Samsung SERIF TV forms a distinct capital ‘I’ shape in profile, its slim body broadening to form a flat surface like a shelf at the top. This form enables it to be displayed seamlessly in the home, either on top of a credenza or via attachable legs that transform the Samsung SERIF TV into a piece of furniture. By design, the Samsung SERIF TV blends harmoniously with its surroundings, whether in a den or in a bedroom, an urban oasis or a suburban retreat. Together with Samsung, the Bouroullec Brothers approached the design of the SERIF TV user interface not only from a practical perspective by developing a bespoke Smart TV menu that is simple and accessible but also delivered a unique and interactive visual display experience unlike any other. They created an exclusive Curtain Mode interface that veils content on the screen to give an abstract impression of what is happening in the background, shutting down content without turning off the TV itself. Even when Curtain Mode is active, viewers can still access services such as a clock, Bluetooth speakers, apps and their photo gallery. The Samsung SERIF TV includes all of the features that consumers desire from a Samsung television: a 4K UHD resolution which provides four times the resolution of full HD TVs and HDR Premium technology to enhance the picture’s color and brightness while creating a more natural, realistic image. As a Smart TV, it also includes a quad-core processor for a fluid browsing experience and seamless switching between live TV, apps and streaming content.
