Following are details on a selection of Samsung’s award-winning products:
Galaxy Note9 – The Galaxy Note series has long
been recognized for launching Samsung’s latest groundbreaking
innovations. The super powerful Galaxy Note9 builds on this legacy with
a premium smartphone that delivers all day performance. With a powerful,
all-day battery1, a new S Pen that features Bluetooth
Low-Energy connectivity, Samsung’s most intelligent camera yet, and up
to a terabyte of storage2, the Galaxy Note9 is the phone
powerful enough to keep up with your busy life.
Galaxy Tab S4 – A 2-in-1 Android tablet designed for
people who want to do more on the go, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 helps

battery and LTE connectivity gives consumers a true standalone
experience. With Samsung’s signature rotating bezel and more robust
lineup of style options you get a smartwatch that looks like a
traditional timepiece and is intuitive to use. With over 39 tracked

Charger Duo – A combination of the Fast Charge Wireless
Charging Stand and the Wireless Charging Pad, the fast-charging

Qi-compatible phone or wearable simultaneously. The charger eliminates
the need to fumble with cables each time you need to top up your
devices’ batteries, while its built-in stand offers easy access to your
DeX – Samsung DeX gives users a PC-like experience
directly from their flagship Samsung Galaxy mobile device. It can be
done by simply connecting a mobile device to an external monitor, or
changing a setting on Galaxy TabS4. DeX enables users to use their phone
or tablet as a touchpad and virtual keyboard. DeX also offers “dual
mode,” so they can continue to use the phone or tablet while working on
the external monitor—whether it’s participating in a video chat or
drawing and taking notes. Note9 users can also use their S Pen to
advance slides while in DeX mode on a larger screen.
Tracker – A small, lightweight GPS tracking device
connected through an LTE-M3 network that helps people quickly
and more accurately keep track of what matters most. Whether it’s a gym
bag lost at school or a pet that might have wandered too far from home,
items can be easily tracked in real time through Samsung’s Android and
iOS compatible SmartThings app4. Family members can also use
SmartThings Tracker to stay connected by sending a location notification
to the SmartThings app that alerts the rest of the family of their
whereabouts. And, since it is SmartThings-enabled, the SmartThings
Tracker can be used as an arrival sensor, triggering automations like a
connected porch light turning on when the device is within range.
Odyssey + – This Windows mixed reality headset captivates
users in the stunningly crisp detail that offers comfort, so that they
can stay immersed in their favorite games and content. In addition to
its Super AMOLED displays, the HMD Odyssey+ features new display
technology called the Anti-Screen Door Effect (anti-SDE), so gamers no
longer have to worry about dizziness and distorted views. The premium
design of the HMD Odyssey+ is perfectly complemented by rich and dynamic
audio of AKG technology, including 360° spatial sound, as well as 110°
field of view – all of which that delivers a more fluid and real-life
Galaxy A6 – For those who want to get more out of a more
affordable smartphone, the Galaxy A6 features an immersive screen,
powerful camera and a new level of convenience. With a
Super AMOLED Infinity Display that brings your content to life with
bright, rich colors and support for expandable storage up to 400GB, the
Galaxy A6 offers plenty of room for videos, music and files. With 16MP
front and rear cameras, users can capture stunning photos and selfies,
and the F1.7 aperture on the rear camera helps keep pictures bright and
clear in low-light settings.
Samsung 256GB 3DS DDR4 RDIMM – The industry’s fastest DDR4 and

Samsung LM302S – The most user-oriented next generation lighting
platform available to date is designed to improve work efficiency by
achieving a healthier circadian rhythm (sleep/wake cycles) throughout
the day, by promoting daytime-to-evening continuity and healthy sleep.
Samsung’s human-centric LED solution can improve a person’s
concentration level by as much as 10% for greater work efficiency.
Furthermore, it also can help people to sleep better at night due to the
melatonin hormone having been suppressed by the LM302S during the
