Samsung Electronics announced that the Galaxy S7 edge was recognised by the GSMA as ‘Best Smartphone 2016’ in the Best Mobile Handsets and Devices category at the annual Global Mobile Awards at Mobile World Congress 2017, held in Barcelona.
“We are honoured to be recognised for our craftsmanship in design and innovation with the Galaxy S7 edge,” says Craige Fleischer, Director of Integrated Mobility at Samsung South Africa. “As the world leader in mobile innovation, Samsung continues to relentlessly pursue the best in hardware, software and services, redefining what is possible for consumers across the globe.”
Mobile World Congress is the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry and is organised by the GSMA. The event serves as both the world’s principal exhibition of the latest mobile devices and as a conference featuring prominent executives representing operators, manufacturers, technology providers, vendors and content owners from around the globe.
The Galaxy S7 edge received this award in recognition of its refined design, advanced camera and outstanding performance. The phone integrates leading edge mobile computing with an uncompromising design that is both dust and water-resistant. The Galaxy S7 edge is a device with a more intuitive user interface that delivers convenience, efficiency and aesthetics in a single unique package.
“This award is a testament to Samsung’s constant pursuit of excellence as the company continues to exceed consumers’ expectations through the development of revolutionary mobile technology,” concludes Fleischer.
