Samsung launches new A-range

Published

Samsung Electronics South Africa has launched the new Galaxy A-series phone range, comprising the new Galaxy A3, A5 and A7.

Samsung Electronics South Africa has launched the new Galaxy A-series phone range, comprising the new Galaxy A3, A5 and A7, described as “reasonably priced smartphones”.

This stylish Galaxy A-series range promises a long-lasting battery, advanced camera, improved processor and faster network speed.

The smartphones feature the latest super AMOLED displays, which make multitasking a breeze and, thanks to its latest Exynos Processors and increased RAM, users can seamlessly shuffle between games, songs, apps and movies.

“The new Galaxy A-series is not only stylish, it is powered to multitask and perform the tasks people use in their active daily lives better and faster than ever before,” said Craige Fleischer, Director of Integrated Mobility at Samsung Electronics South Africa. “The enhanced Octa Core processors in the A7 and A5 and the Quad Core processor powering the A3 makes ease of any work that needs attention.”

Consumers can enjoy extended usage with the device’s high-capacity battery and additional fast charging capability. The increased battery performance for the new A7, A5 and A3 are 27%, 26% and 21% respectively over previous versions. Samsung’s latest high-speed charging technology also drastically reduces charging time, which means that, even when running low on battery life, users will be up and running much sooner and always on the go.

The Galaxy A-series is also geared toward selfies, with a 5MP, 120o wide angle feature on the camera, allowing more friends or scenery to be included in a shot. The camera of the A5 and A7 further assists users to capture blur-free images through Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) technology. An f/1.9 aperture makes better quality images in low-lit areas possible with the 13MP rear camera. A Palm Gesture function allows users to snap selfies with the wave of a hand.

“We continue to take all users and their specific needs and requirements into account when developing devices and we did the same with the A-series of smartphones,” said Fleischer. “These phones are perfect for cost-conscious consumers who wants a stylish handset of high quality and exceptional functionality that is affordable.”

CES: So long, and thanks for all the beer!

Last week, the Las Vegas expo showed off its fun side with state-of-the-art technologies for enjoying beer, writes BRYAN TURNER

From craft beer-making machines to robots that pour beer, CES had more beer than usual in Las Vegas last week. And even free beer if you found the right stand. Stampede’s saloon-style booth offered beer to visitors who tried out its latest drones, virtual reality, and other gaming products. No beer tech, though.

Here are some of the beer technologies that stood out:

LG HomeBrew – Craft beer made at home

LG’s HomeBrew craft beer-making machine,  debuted at CES 2019, brings the brewing process home thanks to single-use capsules,  a self-cleaning feature, and an algorithm optimised for fermentation. 

Like a Nespresso coffee machine, the beer maker uses capsules, which contain malt, yeast, hop oil and flavouring. At the press of a button, LG HomeBrew automates the whole procedure from fermentation and carbonation to ageing. A companion app lets users check HomeBrew’s status at any time during the process, from their handsets.

The beer machine not only offers a simple way to make craft beer, but also enhances the quality of beer it makes. The fermentation algorithm intelligently controls the fermenting process with precise temperature and pressure control. It automatically sanitises itself, using nothing more than hot water, ensuring everything is hygienically clean for the next batch.

Designed with discerning beer lovers in mind, HomeBrew allows for in-home production of batches of more than 4 litres of beer in a variety of styles. The following five distinctive, flavoured beers are available now: 

  • Hoppy American IPA
  • Golden American Pale Ale
  • Full-bodied English Stout
  • Zesty Belgian-style Witbier
  • Dry Czech Pilsner

The only catch? It takes about two weeks to make, depending on the beer type.

“LG HomeBrew is the culmination of years of home appliance and water purification technologies that we’ve developed over the decades,” said Dan Song, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solutions Company. “Homebrewing has grown at an explosive pace, but there are still many beer lovers who haven’t taken the jump because of the barriers to entry, like complexity, and these are the consumers we think will be attracted to LG HomeBrew.”

CES: Alienware gets Legend-ary

Published

on

At CES in Las Vegas last week, Dell’s Alienware released a family of high-end, thin, light, and affordable machines for both amateur and professional gamers – and a new identity.

Alienware marked CES 2019 as a brand milestone with the debut of a new design identity, Alienware Legend. It aims to set a new bar of excellence for what gamers want most – performance and function. Alienware says it evaluated multiple concepts and chose one that was the biggest and boldest departure from its current look.

Alienware Legend, says the company, stays true to the brand’s core design tenets, taking cues from its deep roots in sci-fi culture and its early industrial designs, to distinguish the brand from the rest of the industry. The new Legend design is optimised with cutting-edge thermal cooling technology to achieve and sustain overclocking power, improved AlienFX lighting, and ultra-thin screen borders. It also unveiled a new “three-knuckle hinge” design that reduces the overall dimension while creating a stronger assembly, all combining to yield a better gaming experience.

“We’re excited to come to this year’s CES with some truly groundbreaking products, next-gen software and strategic partnerships that will bring more people to experience PC gaming and advance the industry,” said Frank Azor, vice president and general manager of Alienware. “The legend design answers the call for more and better from our gaming community, and the new G Series laptops will make PC gaming even more accessible to those looking for high-performance gaming at a cost they can appreciate.”
