on Aug 29, 2013
New printer line-up featuring fast print speeds, high quality images and cost savings for home offices, small and medium-sized business customers 
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, 28th August 2013 – Samsung Gulf Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies today unveiled a new line of ProXpress mono laser printers and multi-function printers (MFPs) for small and medium-sized business customers and home office use. These new products offer fast print speeds, high print quality and versatility and have been specifically designed for users who require low operating costs and high performance. The new M4020ND, M3820DW, and M3320ND printers and the M4070FR, M3870FW and M3370FD MFPs offer an all-in-one integrated toner system, robust eco features and duplex printing for lower operating costs and higher efficiency. 
 
“Small to medium-sized businesses and professionals who work at home are increasingly seeking lower operating costs for maximum profitability without sacrificing on high performance,” said Mr. Raj Varma, General Manager – IT Sales Group at Samsung Gulf Electronics, said, “The Printer ProXpress and the Multifunction ProXpress series are built to offer an efficient experience with fast speeds and high quality images at a reasonable cost. In fact, our ProXpress MFPs fall into what IDC calls ‘the sweet spot of the monochrome laser MFP market,’ predicting that this segment is expected to post the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10% compared with other speed segments in this market by 2017*. The ProXpress series is a great choice for small to medium sized business environments, offering the perfect combination of speed and exceptional output quality and low cost of ownership. The ProXpress also helps to save money and the environment with its ‘green’ features such as standard duplexing and Easy Eco Driver.”
 
POWERFUL AND EFFICIENT PERFORMANCE
With print speeds of up to 35 ppm to 42 ppm for letter size documents**, each of the new models provides fast, reliable and economically efficient performance for business users. The units enable document and image processing for increased work flow, through their Cortex™ A5 processor and up to 256 MB of memory.
 
All models come with standard automatic duplex, which allows for printing on both sides of the page as well as a multi-purpose tray, which supports media of up to 220 gsm (58 lbs.) in weight. Offering more printing choices for professional documents such as labels, cards and envelopes, the multi-purpose tray enhances the units’ versatility and usefulness to the users.
 
The Multifunction ProXpress M3870FW and M4070FR also include a DADF (duplex automatic document feeder) feature, which allows users to easily copy, scan and fax double-sided documents. And with scan speeds at up to 24 ipm for single sided documents (M3370FD up to 20 ipm) the MFPs can further improve office efficiency.
 
HIGH QUALITY AND EASY-TO-USE
For sharper text and clearer images, both series are built with Samsung’s image processing technology, Rendering Engine for Clean Pages (ReCP). This technology improves the readability of printed documents by enhancing thin lines and sharpening the edges of negative text. Coupled with print resolutions of up to 1,200 x 1,200 dpi, the ProXpress series delivers unparalleled image quality in its class.
 
All units come with the Samsung Easy Printer Manager, a powerful application that integrates all your print management into one easy-to-use system. Making it easy to share with other users, the M3820DW and M3870FW feature an embedded Wi-Fi direct connection, which allows up to five devices at a time to connect directly to the printer.
 
COST CONTROL WITH INTEGRATED TONER SYSTEM AND EASY ECO DRIVER
For the SMB market, value is just as important as powerful performance and quality.  With Samsung’s Easy Eco Driver and One Touch Eco Button, customers can effectively manage printing options. These functions help reduce paper, toner and energy consumption. The Easy Eco Driver can reduce toner use by up to 20 per cent with the toner saving mode. This mode allows the user to remove images and text, convert from bitmap to sketch and remove bold text to save toner.
 
In addition, four different toner cartridges supporting different printing volumes are available. From the standard cartridge yields 3,000 pages and offers a low initial cost to the ultra-high-yield toner cartridge which yields 15,000 pages*** and offers an extremely low cost per page of 1.4 cents at street price, there is an option for every type of user.
 
SECURE AND CONVENIENT
For additional security, all units feature enterprise-level security with Samsung SyncThru Admin, which offers greater control of user, document and network access. Customers can securely print with a built-in numeric key pad on all units except for the M3320ND. By entering a PIN, a user can elect to send a confidential or personal print job right from the driver, ideal for government or healthcare customers who are printing secure documents. This option protects sensitive information and reduces the number of wasted prints if a user decides they no longer need that print job.
 
FULLY MOBILE
Samsung’s Mobile Print App enables users to print and scan from any mobile device with any Samsung network shared printer and MFP without the need for a computer. The app can be easily downloaded to the users’ smartphone or tablet and supports Android, Windows and iOS mobile platforms. With its capability to print Microsoft Office documents as well as support for Job Accounting and Secure print, businesses can improve the efficiency of their increasingly mobile workforce.
 
In addition, both the Printer ProXpress and the Multifunction ProXpress are Google Cloud Print Ready, allowing users to print remotely from any mobile device with their Google account. This is an ideal printing solution for Chromebook users, especially among the education market, where Chromebooks are growing in popularity for student and educator use.
 
ECO-SENSITIVE
As part of Samsung’s commitment to the environment, all the latest models are ENERGY STAR® qualified, along with having earned a Bronze rating from EPEAT®, a global registry for greener electronics. Furthermore, all toner is eligible for Samsung’s S.T.A.R. Program, a free service that recycles empty Samsung cartridges into their major usable component materials and then reuses for other products. Single and bulk returns are available.
 
All Samsung printers can be found at Samsung’s B2B partners outlets starting from AED 609.

Samsung Highlights New Regional SIM Lock Feature for its Smartphones
on Oct 30, 2013
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – October 30 2013 – Samsung Gulf Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies is launching a campaign to educate consumers about a SIM Lock feature currently applicable with the GALAXY Note 3, which can lock the device if not purchased through authorized retailers. 

Samsung’s Regional SIM Lock is a new addition to its current smartphone features, introduced with the newly launched GALAXY Note 3 to provide quality customer service across the world and an optimised mobile user experience. 

With this feature, the GALAXY Note 3 will only be compatible with a SIM-card issued from a mobile operator within the region identified. When the smartphone is activated with a SIM-card from another region to where it was purchased, the device will be locked until it is released at the dedicated service centre.

Local consumer’s that bought their device in the UAE need not worry, as the regional SIM Lock feature is currently not available in the UAE but if consumer’s buy a device abroad and bring it back, they could find they are unable to use the device. By raising awareness of this feature, Samsung is highlighting the importance of purchasing its devices from authorized retailers and channels in the UAE. Buying devices that may have been brought into the region from abroad will not work due to the SIM Lock feature.

However, if the smartphone is activated normally using a local SIM-card, the regional SIM Lock feature is automatically released and users can enjoy the roaming service as usual and can insert other international SIM Cards when travelling. 

The SIM Lock feature will also be rolled out to other Samsung devices including the GALAXY Note 2, GALAXY S3, GALAXY S4 and the GALAXY S4 Mini, through software updates. 

“This is an important feature that we have introduced in many other markets to help improve customer experiences and services. We wanted to highlight the importance of buying local devices from authorized retailers to avoid issues with international network configurations. It really applies to people who might buy a device in other country and bring it back here.” Said Mr. Hayssam Yassine, Head of Telecommunications Group at Samsung Gulf Electronics.

“For example, if the smartphone was intended for the UK market but was brought back and registered in the UAE, the smartphone will lock and will not allow for any other SIM cards to be used. If users register their device in the country it was intended then the feature is universally unlocked and the consumer can travel to any country and use any network SIM Card.” Concluded Mr. Yassine.
