Samsung sees Galaxy Note boosting sales 30 per cent

With the launch of the Galaxy Note 5, Samsung expects a boost in the market in Cambodia after the product was sold out during an event last week.

Last Saturday, people flocked to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 launch event where lines formed in anticipation for the device which features new technologies and a new design.

According to a Samsung source, the Galaxy Note 5 quickly sold out during the launch.

Chea Socheat, the representative of Samsung Cambodia, said that “Samsung believes that the new cutting edge Galaxy Note 5 will boost the sales of Samsung in Cambodia up to 30 per cent because of its new design and multi-functioning technologies while the sales of Samsung Cambodia increases year after year.”

Customers showed their satisfaction with the new Galaxy Note 5, as well.

At the launch event, Chan Dalin, a Samsung customer, said, “I feel that this new phone is very easy to use, especially since the S pen is much smaller.

The curve shape of the phone makes it easy to hold with just one hand.”

Sin Oudom Mony, who purchased a Galaxy Note 5 at the launch after waiting with some friends since the early morning, was one of the lucky people who received a phone that day.

“Initially, I did not think that I would be able to get a phone today because there were so many people waiting here, too. But now I can get it! I am so happy,” he said.

The Galaxy Note 5 is the newest development of the Galaxy Note line that has become more intuitive and practical as well.

With an “air command” feature, hovering icons for instant access and the ability to annotate PDF files, the Galaxy Note 5 has expanded all its features to create an easy, accessible phone.

In addition, the Galaxy Note 5 can also capture lengthy web articles or long images through “scroll capture”.

The Galaxy Note 5 is available at every Samsung retailer in Cambodia.
