Samsung honoured with “Best Device” award win at LTE World Summit 2011

Samsung Electronics, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, was today honored when its 4G LTE Smartphone was named “Best Device” at the LTE World Summit 2011 Awards Ceremony. This award comes in recognition of the device’s wide range of immersive features, seamless connectivity and elegant design.

With super-fast 4G LTE connectivity – 20 times faster than with 3G – the device enables users to easily and quickly download high quality content, such as HD videos and hi-res images, providing a more intuitive and immersive content experience. Pictures taken using the 8MP camera can be viewed with incredible clarity on the device’s 4.3” WVGA Super AMOLED+ screen, before sending these images on to friends and family by using the device’s high-speed connectivity.

“We are honored and delighted to have received this prestigious accolade” said Hankil Yoon, Vice President and Head of Smartphone Product Planning Group in Mobile Communications Division. He continued “this award demonstrates the increasing global recognition of the high standard of service we offer our customers. Nevertheless it is important for us to look ahead as we continue to establish ourselves as the leading provider in this space.”

Launched through Verizon in May 2011, the feature-packed Samsung SCH i510 4G LTE smartphone is set to make a significant impact on the 4G smartphone market; in addition to offering an immersive user experience, the device also offers unique and seamless network connectivity.

When the user steps out of LTE coverage, they stay connected via EVDO network handover without needing to disconnect from LTE and reconnect to an EVDO network, meaning that they stay constantly connected.

At the 2011 LTE World Summit, Samsung unveiled its Smart LTE solution. Following a long period of research and development, the service provides customized solutions which maximize and optimize the capability and usage of operators existing network resources, reducing the overall cost of investment.
