How Galaxy A is Connecting with Mothers

Posted by radio On May - 18 - 2019 ADD COMMENTS

The Galaxy A series has a surprisingly perfect market in South African moms

 

 

Mum’s have less time than ever before
• Technology needs to adapt to different mum’s needs
• Galaxy provides caters to specific needs and budgets

 

As any mum will tell you, when a woman becomes a mum she has to squeeze a dozen more hours into her day. The trade-off is fewer hours for herself. Whether she’s a helicopter mum, BFF mummy or career mum, smartphones have at least helped to ease the burden of ticking off the impossible number of tasks on her to-do list. And if saving money is on her list, the Galaxy A Series offers the unique opportunity to own a phone that has the flagship features she wants, while still staying on top of her home’s budget. The Galaxy A Series includes immersive viewing experiences, longer lasting performance and ground-breaking cameras.

 

“Galaxy A is designed to provide an option for everyone, whether for first-time mobile users or value-seekers,” said Justin Hume, Director: Integrated Mobility at Samsung South Africa.” We focussed on the needs of the local market and have researched the unique preferences to bring the flagship experience to more people, in more ways.”

 

While the A Series now has wide appeal to everyone, it really makes a difference to mums. Whether at home, out and about or at the office, the Galaxy A really delivers. Of course not all mums have the same needs. Some are struggling to get a few minutes sleep as they grapple with their new-born’s sleeping cycle. Others spent hours teaching their little learner about subjects even they’re unsure about. And some find themselves staring at a moody teen wondering what happened to their cute bundle of joy.

The A Series caters to all these needs; the pixel perfect pictures needed to capture the precious moments, vivid, immersive screens to enjoy any downtime that’s available and long lasting battery to keep going despite having a million things to do. All you need to do is choose the A Series device that best suits your specific needs. It’s all about amazing value. Whether you choose the entry level A2 Core with its 5-inch screen and surprisingly strong processor or the power packed performances of the rest of Galaxy A, the whole series is a mum’s best friend.

 

Designed for those on-the-go, the A20 and A30 are both equipped with a powerful 4,000mAh, fast charging battery. They are also a visual feast. The edge-to-edge 6.4”, Super AMOLED Infinity-U displays are ideal for watching videos, messaging, gaming and browsing the endless stream of ‘How to’ videos. Created for a more seamless mobile experience, they include advanced camera features such as a dual camera, including an amazing Ultra Wide-angle lens, that can see more than your own eyes can. Yes, even wider than the most eagle-eyed mum’s eyes. And to keep your precious pics safe, there’s the simple, secure access with intuitive Face Unlock.

 

Ultimately, the entire A series is power-packed with innovations and upgrades to do so much. When compared to competitors in its price category, the A series is an all-round winner for every type of mum.

The B-BBEE ICT Sector Council welcomes the announcement by the Minister for Trade and Industry, Dr Rob Davies, that the shares held by government in Telkom will count as having BEE Facilitator Status.

The B-BBEE ICT Sector Council (the ICT Sector Council) was established in 2015 to give effect to the alignment of the ICT Sector Code with the Revised Generic Codes of Good Practice and to thereafter take responsibility for transformation within the ICT Sector. The Amended ICT Sector Code came into force on 7 November 2016 and covers entities in the Broadcasting, Electronics, Information Technology and Telecommunications sub-sectors. Telkom SA SOC Ltd (Telkom) is a measured entity in terms of the Amended ICT Sector Code, recognised as a BEE Level 4 Contributor for the period 2018/2019.

 

Following the publication of Notice 58 of 2019 dated 1 February 2019, the ICT Sector Council investigated the origin of the application for BEE Facilitator Status and consulted with stakeholders to establish the potential implications of such status for transformation within the Sector.

 

The ICT Sector Council understands the unique position of Telkom insofar as ownership is concerned, with the SA Government as a shareholder. The ICT Sector Council is sympathetic towards Telkom’s wish to achieve recognition as a BEE Contributor at the best possible level in order to be competitive and to support transformation in the supply chain. It is our understanding of the BEE Facilitator Status that it is intended to enable measured entities that benefit from public funding that is secured by shares in such entities to have the Black ownership of these shares recognised.

 

Mr Andile Tlhoaele, Chairperson of the ICT Sector Council, confirmed that this would improve Telkom’s BEE rating and enable it to compete fairly in the market. “The ICT Sector Council had engaged with Telkom and the Department of Telecommunications and Postal Services to support this move and is delighted that Telkom can move forward with transforming the telecommunications sub-sector,” added Tlhoaele

 

The ICT Sector Council is responsible for developing, reviewing and publishing the B-BBEE Amended ICT Sector Code (the ICT Sector Code). The ICT Sector Council is also mandated to monitor the implementation of the ICT Sector Code and report its progress to Honourable Minister Ms Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams, President Cyril Ramaphosa’s Advisory Council on BEE, Honourable Minister Dr Rob Davies and the B-BBEE Commissioner Ms Zodwa Ntuli.

  • Netflix has ordered Black Excellence, their first series project with Kenya Barris with Barris and Rashida Jones set to star.

  • Inspired by Barris’ irreverent, highly flawed, unbelievably honest approach to parenting, relationships, race, and culture, Black Excellence looks to pull the curtain back and reboot the “family sitcom” in a way we’ve never seen before.

 

  • Barris and Jones will executive produce alongside Hale Rothstein (black-ish, grown-ish). The single-camera comedy will be produced through Barris’ production company, Khalabo Ink Society, under the multi-hyphenate’s overall series deal with the streamer.

 

  • Black Excellence marks Barris’ first series with Netflix since making the streamer his home less than a year ago. Barris hasn’t been shy about his desire to flip the family sitcom and what it looks like on its head; and with the series officially launching its writers room last month, he is wasting little time getting to work on exploring and pushing those boundaries.

Game of Thrones S8 Ep 5 Preview

Posted by radio On May - 11 - 2019 ADD COMMENTS

If you haven’t watched episode 4 of Season 8 of Game of Thrones yet, look away!

** WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD **

Euron properly destroyed Danaerys’s fleet. It was a whitewash, made more so when the dragon Rhaegal was shot from the sky by scorpion bolts. It really does feel like Queen Cersei is holding all the cards now – with one brother, Tyrion, pleading futilely for the life of Missandei, and Jamie up and leaving Ser Brienne in Winterfell to return to his twin’s side.

Binge watch Game of Thrones from the beginning on Showmax »

How can two more episodes wrap up all these plot twists? We find out in this preview of Game of Thrones episode 5.

From the looks of things, Tyrion is properly gobsmacked at every turn as the army of the North and what remains of Danaerys’s legions gather at the gates of King’s Landing. The only one who looks more astounded is Euron, who is peering into the sky as if seeing… a dragon, of course. The Internet is rife with speculation that there may, in fact, be more than one dragon that Euron is seeing up high. Is it possible?

Watch the penultimate Game of Thrones S8 on Mondays on M-Net (101) at 03:00 and again at 22:00 on M-Net and Showmax.

Samsung has announced its strategic partnership with Syte to power the first native visual AI marketplace within Samsung devices – ground-breaking technology which is now expanding to South Africa. Syte’s visual AI technology will be powering Bixby Vision’s Shopping Assistant, enabling users to browse and shop visually similar products directly from their camera and through a gallery of similar products including Superbalist, Zando, Cotton On, Wantitall, Homechoice and Bid or Buy.

 

“South Africa has enthusiastic consumers that expect engaging and convenient experiences that fit their lifestyle. We therefore decided to expand our partnership with Syte so our devices deliver just that. With visual search, South Africans can shop with ease, and connect better with their favourite retailers and brands and vice versa,” said Justin Hume, Director: Integrated Mobility at Samsung South Africa.

 

Syte retail clients will populate the shopping results, which means unprecedented access to high quality, purchase-ready traffic to retailers. Samsung aims to create the first visual AI ecosystem, where real-life inspiration leads directly to product discovery and purchase, all powered by Syte’s leading visual AI technology for retail. In a strategic decision by Samsung and Syte, the retailers that appear on the shoppable feed will create a consistent experience driven by visual inspiration, all the way from snapping a picture to check-out.

 

“We are thrilled that more and more consumers are going to experience the power of visual search. Our partnership with Samsung and its expansion to South Africa are meaningful achievements for us. By powering the end-to-end journeys of shoppers, we bring more value and increase the engagement between our retail clients and consumers,” said Ofer Fryman, CEO of Syte.

 

Ultimately, Samsung’s Bixby is being enhanced in many innovative ways. With Bixby Vision already built into the camera on select Samsung devices, you can translate foreign languages, identify landmarks or businesses to learn more about them and even keep track of calories so that each meal fits into your health goals. Along with Bixby Shopping, Samsung continues to push the boundaries of artificial intelligence even further. As a human-centred company, this is all aligned to Samsung’s greater vision of helping people ‘Do What You Can’t’.

 

Supported devices for Bixby Vision and Shopping include Galaxy S10+/S10/ S10eS9/S9+Note8/S8/S8+/A7 2018/A5 2018

Reports quarterly operating profit of KRW 6.2 trillion (R76.3 million) on sales of KRW 52.4 trillion (R64.54 million)

 

Samsung reported financial results for the first quarter ended 31 March 2019. The Company posted KRW 52.4 trillion (R64.54 million) in consolidated quarterly revenue and KRW 6.2 trillion (R76.3 million) in quarterly operating profit. First quarter earnings were weighed down by the weakness in memory chips and displays, although the newly launched Galaxy S10 smartphone logged solid sales.

The Semiconductor business saw a drop in memory chip prices as inventory adjustments continued at datacentre companies, while demand for high-density memory for mobile phones increased thanks to new flagship smartphones. Earnings improved at the System LSI and Foundry businesses over the sales of smartphone application processors (APs). The Display Panel Business reported a quarterly loss due to decreased demand for flexible displays and increasing market supplies for large displays.

 

In the IT & Mobile Communications (IM) Division, despite solid sales of the Galaxy S10, profitability in the mobile business declined YoY as competition intensified in the low- to mid-range segment. In addition, amid softer demand in the overall smartphone market, revamping of the Company’s mass-market line-up led to a YOY decrease in sales volume. Earnings from the Network Business increased, buoyed by the launch of 5G telecommunication service in Korea. Sales of premium TVs such as QLED TVs and ultra-large size models contributed to the YOY earnings growth in the Consumer Electronics (CE) Division.

 

Looking ahead to the second quarter, Samsung expects limited improvement in the memory chip market, as demand will likely begin to improve for major applications such as mobile products but price declines will likely continue. Demand is seen increasing for APs and CMOS Image Sensors in the System LSI and Foundry businesses. For Displays, Samsung expects higher demand for rigid panels. The IM Division is set to focus on flagship products such as the world’s first 5G smartphone and the enhanced mass-market lineup with innovative cameras and display features. The CE Division is likely to report growth in the second quarter on strong seasonal demand for air conditioners and sales of new premium TVs. For the second half of 2019, the company expects memory chip demand for high-density products to increase but uncertainties in the external environment will persist. A further recovery is seen for the Display Business as demand for flexible screens is set to rise on new smartphone launches

 

Growing competition in the mature TV and smartphone markets is expected to pose a challenge in the second half and Samsung will focus on strengthening its leadership in the premium segment. Over the mid- to long-term, the Company aims to strengthen competitiveness of key businesses by diversifying applications and delivering innovations in components and new device form factors. Samsung will also continue to expand its capabilities in automotive technology, leveraging HARMAN’s solutions and in artificial intelligence. In the first quarter, Samsung’s capital expenditure totaled KRW 4.5 trillion (R55.4 million), including KRW 3.6 trillion (R44.3 million) spent on semiconductors and KRW 0.3 trillion (R3.6 million) on displays.

 

Semiconductor Sees 2H Demand Improvement Despite Uncertainties

 

The Semiconductor business posted consolidated revenue of KRW 14.47 trillion (R178.2 million) and operating profit of KRW 4.12 trillion (R50.75 million) for the quarter. Overall, the Memory business saw demand for NAND and DRAM steadily weaken amid macroeconomic uncertainties, weak seasonality and inventory adjustments by datacentre firms. This weakness was partially offset by increased adoption of high-density memory products for mobile and launches of flagship smartphones. In the second quarter, the overall memory market is likely to remain slow during weak seasonality, although the company expects demand for some applications to gradually improve. For NAND, demand for high-density server SSD such as All-Flash-Array is expected to increase, while launches of high-end smartphones with 256GB and higher storage will likely keep demand stable in the second quarter. For the second half, NAND demand is expected to grow across key applications as prices soften. Samsung will seek to actively generate new demand while responding to customer demand for high-density memory and also strengthen cost competitiveness by expanding supply of 5th generation V-NAND.

 

For DRAM, server demand will likely improve among datacentre companies with lower inventory levels, starting from the end of the second quarter. PC demand is seen increasing, while high-density adoption in new smartphone models is set to help demand for mobile DRAM. The company plans to actively address demand for differentiated high-end products, such as LPDDR4X for mobile devices, while also focusing on the transition to 1Y-nm in major applications. As for the second half, DRAM demand is expected to rise thanks to seasonal effects despite lingering uncertainties. Also, demand for high-density products for server and mobile products is likely to be solid due to expanded adoption of new CPUs in servers and the trend toward high-density in mobile. Samsung plans to flexibly manage its capacity and strengthen competitiveness by ramping up production of 1Y-nm products.

 

For the System LSI Business, despite slowing demand for image sensors amid weak smartphone seasonality, earnings improved in the first quarter on the back of increased supply of APs and modems. The Company also successfully commercialised the world’s first 5G chipset solution. In the second quarter, earnings for the business are expected to improve slightly as demand for image sensors and DDIs recovers and demand for 5G chipsets rises. In the second half, despite sluggish demand, smartphone makers are expected to continue to adopt high-spec components. Samsung plans to expand its line-up of image sensors and 5G chipset solutions to address demand for high-end mobile phones. It also plans to diversify product offerings with 3D/fingerprint-on-display sensors and chips for automotive and IoT applications.

 

For the Foundry Business, earnings were stagnant QoQ due to sluggish global foundry conditions and weak seasonality in the smartphone market. The Company began mass production of 5G and IoT mobile products by adopting the eMRAM process and secured new orders for computing chipsets through FinFET 8-nm process. Looking ahead, Samsung aims to strengthen its competitiveness through tape-out of the EUV 6-nm process and by completing 5-nm process development. In the second half, based on its mass production of EUV 7-nm process, the company will focus on developing the EUV 4-nm process and the next-generation architecture.

 

Display Sees Moderate Improvement In 2Q

 

The Display Panel Business reported KRW 6.12 trillion (R75.4 million) in consolidated revenue and KRW 0.56 trillion (R689.7 million) in operating loss in the first quarter. It posted an operating loss due to weaker profitability in both mobile and large displays. Mobile displays suffered slower demand and intensifying competition with LTPS LCDs. Large displays also took a hit from a continued decline in LCD panel prices amid weak seasonality. Looking ahead to the second quarter, Samsung expects limited improvement to earnings as demand for flexible displays is likely to remain weak. The company will focus on improving earnings by boosting sales of rigid OLEDs and offering differentiated products featuring new technology such as Infinity Display and fingerprint-on-display.

 

For large displays, the company forecasts growing demand for value-added products such as large-sized and high resolution TV panels in the second quarter, although concerns over supplies continue. It will focus on actively addressing demand for its core products, providing differentiated technology and improving cost structure. In the second half, demand for flexible smartphone OLED panels is expected to rebound although pressure on LCD panel prices will persist. Under these circumstances, Samsung will actively respond to demand from major smartphone customers and broaden its OLED business scope with new applications.
As for large displays, despite uncertainties from capacity expansions in the LCD industry, the company expects demand for the premium TV panels to continue to grow including UHD, 8K and ultra-large TVs. In response, it will strive to improve profitability by focusing on value-added products.

 

Mobile Supported by Strong Galaxy S10 Sales

 

The IT & Mobile Communications Division posted KRW 27.2 trillion (R335 million) in consolidated revenue and KRW 2.27 trillion (R33.5 million) in operating profit for the quarter. Overall market demand for smartphones decreased QoQ as the industry moved into a seasonally weak period, but Samsung reported a QoQ rise in revenue thanks to solid sales of the Galaxy S10. However, growth in smartphone shipments was limited as sales of previous models fell due to a line-up reorganisation of mid- to low-end products. Increased expenses from adoption of high-end features, marketing and the line-up revamp pressured profitability. Earnings for the Networks Business also improved thanks to the commercial launch of 5G in South Korea. Looking ahead to the second quarter, as weak seasonality continues, market demand for smartphones is expected to increase slightly QoQ. Samsung will strengthen its product line-up through innovations such as Galaxy S10 5G and Galaxy A80 and continued reorganisation of its product offerings.

 

For the second half, despite intensified market competition, Samsung expects smartphone sales to increase led by new models in all segments from the Galaxy A series to the Galaxy Note amid strong seasonality. In the premium segment, the Company will strengthen its leadership through the new Galaxy Note as well as its innovative products such as 5G and foldable smartphones. Samsung also aims to secure profitability by improving cost efficiency. For the Networks Business, Samsung will strive to maintain solid performance in the second quarter on commercialisation of 5G as well as expansion of overseas LTE networks. In the second half, the Company will continue to expand LTE networks globally and supply 5G equipment for markets such as South Korea and the United States.

 

Consumer Electronics Eyes High-Value Products for Growth

 

The Consumer Electronics Division, which includes the Visual Display and Digital Appliances businesses, recorded KRW 10.04 trillion (R128 million) in consolidated revenue and KRW 0.54 trillion (R665 million) in operating profit for the first quarter of 2019. Earnings for the Visual Display Business fell QoQ as the global TV market entered a slow season, but improved YoY thanks to the early adoption of new models. The expansion of premium product sales contributed, as Samsung solidified its global leading position in premium and ultra-large screen TVs. Demand for TVs in the second quarter is projected to weaken slightly due to softening demand from emerging markets. Sales are also seen decreasing from a year earlier because of a lack of global sporting events this year. The Company will seek to improve results through further expanding the sales of high-value-added products such as QLED TVs and bringing forward the introduction of new models. For the Digital Appliance Business, despite a slower global demand, growth in the domestic market has been robust with demand centering on new lifestyle home appliances such as garment refreshers and air purifiers. For the second quarter, the company plans to improve its performance by bolstering sales of air conditioners, expected to be in peak demand thanks to the summer season.

 

Looking ahead to the second half of 2019, the TV market is projected to grow slightly YoY despite global economic challenges. Demand for appliances is also expected to rise compared with the first half as political tensions surrounding global trade ease.

At a function, held in Johannesburg yesterday, Samsung announced its R280 million Equity Equivalent Investment Programme (EEIP), projected to have a measurable impact on job creation and a contribution of nearly R1 billion to the South African economy at large. EEIP is an initiative of the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) where multinational companies that are unable to sell equity in South Africa are invited to participate and contribute positively towards B-BBEE and development of South Africa. The announcement event, which was addressed by the Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr Rob Davies, through a video, as well as the President and CEO of Samsung Africa, Mr. Sung Yoon, followed Samsung’s recent commitments to long term investment in South Africa.

According to Minister Davies, the Samsung South Africa’s Equity Equivalent investment amounts to almost R280 Million over 10 years. It joins nine other multinationals that have been approved for a value of R2.2 billion collectively. The programme has to date resulted in the creation of over 3 000 direct and indirect jobs.

 

The Samsung plan will create and address key developmental aspects linked to the National Development Plan (NDP) and overall transformation of our economy. These include the Black industrialisation through e-Waste recycling, beneficiation research and development in partnership with Mintek, which is a first for Africa, where a beneficiation plant is planned to be built and maintained by South Africans, and operated by a Black entrepreneur, enterprise development, and the development of township economies through Accredited Services Centres and software development.

 

 

“We are delighted that the Samsung EEIP will have the following measurable impacts on the South African economy: it will result in the creation of 262 direct jobs; it will allow the emergence of a new Black Industrialist; it will support 13 black-owned and women-owned businesses and will contribute R945 million to the economy. We are happy that the dti has contributed and supported Samsung in the design and development of this programme that will result in the establishment of five accredited service centres that are black and women-owned. These will be providing repair service to all kinds of brands of consumer electronics, hand-held devices, air-conditioning and refrigerators,” said Minister Davies.

 

The Director of Business Innovation Group and Corporate Affairs at Samsung South Africa, Mr Hlubi Shivanda added: “We believe our EEIP strategy will help alleviate the many challenges the nation faces. Our alignment with the National Development Plan (NDP) 2030 is part of our statement of intent. The fact is, Samsung is firmly committed to growing South Africa through socio-economic change and has dedicated the necessary resources and time to create a future, which was once merely a dream.”

 

The approved Samsung SA’s EEIP has an integrated approach, which means that Samsung will be an integral partner in the creation of the first and only black-owned and operated e-waste beneficiation plant in Africa that can separate Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE). The company has also opted for a strategic partnership-aligned model to achieve greater impact. In this regard Samsung has partnered with government departments such as DEA, DHE, DTPS and the IDC. UWC has been selected as anchor partner for the development of black application development skills. Additionally, a partnership with Microsoft AppFactory will provide real experience to supplement the theoretical knowledge gained by beneficiaries at UWC. Mintek will be Samsung’s technology partner for e-Waste beneficiation.

 

Ultimately, The Samsung SA EEIP will make a measurable difference to socio-economic development of black South Africans. The alignment with the overarching objectives of the NDP Vision for 2030, B-BBEE policy, Industrial Policy Action Plan, as well as the Gauteng Township Economy Revitalisation Strategy is set to make a difference by; strengthening government’s Black Industrialisation Programme, driving a culture of innovation through digital solutions, enhancing entrepreneurship development, job creation and township economic development and technical skills development to contribute to much needed skills in the country and raise the prospects of employability.

 

Samsung will continue to pursue opportunities where people can become meaningfully engaged in the economy and in doing so, have a positive impact on their families, communities and therein, the entire nation.
