Samsung today launched the Galaxy S6 edge+ in the Kenyan market, with a focus on its camera’s video taking capabilities.

As social networking becomes more ubiquitous, consumers expect to share the moments of their lives through photos and video and Samsung is enabling that desire with improved video capabilities.

These include Steady Video, which provides Video Digital Image Stabilization on both the front and rear cameras for sharp, crisp video on-the-go, and Video Collage Mode, which allows users to record and edit short videos easily in various frames and effects.

“The technology that Samsung has deployed on this device is a result of current market needs and rapidly changing lifestyles of smartphone users who have an appetite for information and content,” said Samsung East Africa VP and COO, Robert Ngeru.

The Galaxy S6 edge+ also feature 4K(UHD) video filming and Live Broadcast, which lets users instantly live streams Full HD video straight from the phone to any individual, group of contacts, or even the public through YouTube Live.

Galaxy S6 edge+ users will also benefit from Samsung’s advanced camera system, including Quick Launch (double click the home button to launch the camera in less than one second), Auto Real-time High Dynamic Range (HDR), Smart Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and brand-new filters.

“Functionality and easy to use capabilities continue to form the core of Samsung’s design philosophy. The S6 edge+ represent the barriers we continue to push in order to create new technologies and enhance user experiences particularly for emerging markets like Kenya,” said Mr. Ngeru.

With increased 4GB RAM, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ offers powerful capacity and processing power, enabling users to enjoy more seamless multi-tasking. The device also features multimedia capabilities with deep screen contrast and details through Samsung’s 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display.
