On the 15th of June, 2016, Samsung officially launched the 2016 Galaxy J Series of affordable smartphones. The launch event was held at the magnificent KL Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC), in partnership with Yes which officially announced their 4G LTE network as well.
There is a reason for this particular partnership between Samsung Malaysia and Yes. The new Yes 4G LTE network is a pure data network with VoLTE (Voice over LTE) capability. The new Samsung Galaxy J7, J5 and J1 smartphones have been optimised for the next-generation data-centric mobile network that Yes just announced.
