Executive management and dedicated customers attend special event

KUWAIT: Zain hosted a special event at its headquarters in Shuwaikh to celebrate the launch of the all-new, highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S24 series. The event was attended by executive management teams from Zain, Samsung Gulf, and Al-Babtain, along with Zain’s dedicated customers, Samsung enthusiasts, and content creators from the local tech community. Users got to experience the new devices up-close prior to their official launch to learn more about the lineup’s top innovations and best features.

In attendance were Zain Kuwait Acting CEO Nawaf Al-Gharabally, Samsung Gulf President Doohee Lee, Samsung Gulf Head of Branch for Kuwait and Qatar Yong Jae Lee, Zain Kuwait CCO Meshal Al-Kandari, Samsung Gulf Senior Sales Director Fadi Abu Shamat, Al-Babtain Business Development and Investment Specialist Abdulwahab Al-Babtain, and other executives and team members from the three companies.

The special event gathered Zain’s most dedicated customers, Samsung fans, and content creators from the local tech community for an exclusive opportunity to experience the all-new lineup, which includes the flagship Galaxy S24 Ultra, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24. Guests were introduced to revolutionary features from the three AI-powered devices, with Samsung’s team of specialists available to answer all queries.

During the event, Zain Kuwait Acting CEO Nawaf Al-Gharabally said: “This exclusive experience comes under our strategic partnership with Samsung Gulf and Al-Babtain. Their presence today cements our years-long relationship that brings to our market the best innovations and technologies.”

Al-Gharabally added: “Kuwait’s market is a relatively small one in size, but the private sector’s contributions, with partnerships like this one that is fueled by Zain’s ambition and Samsung’s innovation, placed it on the map as one of the most mature and leading markets in the telecom and ICT space, both regionally and globally.”

“Two years ago, Zain became the first operator globally to commercially launch voice over 5G (Vo5G) with nationwide coverage on the Samsung Galaxy S series, bringing crystal-clear voice calls over 5G on the nation’s biggest network. This was an incredible milestone, not only for Zain, but for Kuwait as a key player in the global telecom community as well,” he continued.

Al-Gharabally concluded by saying: “Exceeding customer expectations bolstered the leadership position we enjoy in the market today. Zain’s Ookla Speedtest award winning network complements the S24 lineup’s innovations, making it the first and best choice for a seamless digital experience.”

During the event, Zain’s most dedicated customers who preordered the new devices were given a special opportunity to collect their orders earlier than the official delivery date in appreciation of their loyalty. Guests also excitedly joined a draw on multiple Galaxy S24 Ultra flagship devices. In addition, an interactive keynote was presented by Samsung’s expert trainer, Marvel Fredo, who went through the Galaxy S24 series’ most anticipated features.

Samsung Electronics recently unveiled the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Galaxy S24+ and Galaxy S24, unleashing new mobile experiences with Galaxy AI. Galaxy S series leads the way into a new era that will forever change how mobile devices empower users. AI amplifies nearly every experience on Galaxy S24 series, from enabling barrier-free communication with intelligent text and call translations, to maximizing creative freedom with Galaxy’s ProVisual Engine, to setting a new standard for search that will change how Galaxy users discover the world around them.

Galaxy AI introduces meaningful intelligence aimed at enhancing every part of life, especially the phone’s most fundamental role: communication. When you need to defy language barriers, Galaxy S24 makes it easier than ever. Chat with another student or colleague from abroad. Book a reservation while on vacation in another country. It’s all possible with Live Translate, two-way, real-time voice and text translations of phone calls within the native app. No third-party apps are required, and on-device AI keeps conversations completely private.

Galaxy S24 series’ ProVisual Engine is a comprehensive suite of AI-powered tools that transforms image capturing abilities and maximizes creative freedom every step of the way, from setting up a shot all the way to sharing it on social. As AI becomes a more prominent part of everyday life, performance power must excel to meet the demands. Gaming. Heavy-duty video recording and editing. Jumping between five apps to plan a trip. Whatever the task, Galaxy S24 provides an incredible experience thanks to enhancements in its chipset, display and more.

Galaxy S24 Ultra is the first-ever Galaxy phone to feature a titanium frame, enhancing device durability and longevity. Galaxy S24 Ultra’s significantly thinner body enables better on-the-go experience with more comfortable grip. On Galaxy S24+ and Galaxy S24, a streamlined One-mass design satisfies a more aesthetic standard with seamless connection between the device’s rear cover and side frame.
