Samsung has won recognition from the GSM Association for the second year running in both the category of Device Manufacturer of the Year and Best Smartphone in the Global Mobile Awards, held at the Mobile World Congress 2013.
After achieving number one status in the total mobile phone market as well as in the smartphone market last year, the award recognised Samsung’s continued innovation and industry leading device portfolio.
The GALAXY S III was also named “Best Smartphone” in recognition of the device’s powerful performance and overwhelming response from consumers. The GALAXY S III, Samsung’s flagship smartphone, achieved worldwide sales of over 40 million units so far, making it the fastest selling device in Samsung history and the world’s leading smartphone. The smartphone combined natural interaction with easy and instant sharing to deliver a top class smartphone experience.
This model was the successor to the hugely successful GALAXY S II which was recognised as Best Smartphone by the GSM Association in 2012.
Named by judges as “Best Mobile Enabled Consumer Electronics Device”, the GALAXY Camera is the first truly Connected Camera, combining the quality of a compact camera with the connectivity and adaptability that comes with 3G/4G + Wi-Fi connectivity and the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system.
