Touch & QWERTY versatility and rich social communication feature in one smartphone
Seoul, Korea – July 04, 2012 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today announced the launch of the Samsung GALAXY Chat. Designed for socially-active users, GALAXY Chat will allow its users to connect the people around them more easily. GALAXY Chat will be available from July starting in Spain and gradually rolled out to Europe, Latin America, Middle East, China, Southeast Asia, and Southwest Asia at a competitive price point.
The Samsung GALAXY Chat sports a sleek, compact design that complements your style. Powered by AndroidTM 4.0, the GALAXY Chat combines a 3.0’’ touch-screen with a full QWERTY keypad. With the GALAXY Chat, keeping up with your social life is easy and fun. Preloaded on the phone with its own dedicated launch key, Samsung’s ChatON communication service connects you and users from any phone platform into a single community, enabling spontaneous group chatting and messaging—whether with text, animations or images—in seconds. Email is easy to use and manage thanks to predictive search capabilities, a more visual action bar for seamless navigation, and the ability to nest mail folders for quicker access and convenience. Whatever your data demands—whether browsing, emailing or connecting socially—the GALAXY Chat also provides convenient settings that allow you to easily monitor and control data usage from month to month.
Navigating the phone’s app menus is a breeze with more visual icons incorporating 3D effects, a fully customizable Favorites tray, and widgets that you can resize or reposition according to your preferences. You also have the ability to launch the camera or view your notifications directly from the lock screen; and multitasking is made even easier with features such as the ability to swipe apps to instantly dismiss them.
The Samsung GALAXY Chat comes preloaded with Game Hub. Game Hub is pre-packed with the most popular social games, providing endless entertainment. Samsung’s AllShare Play allows you to play multimedia from or to other connected devices. For added productivity, the Quick Office application offers easy viewing and editing of a wide range of Office documents, enabling you to work with Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. In addition, Samsung’s S Planner app allows you to manage your schedule in an easy and intuitive way.
