The new Galaxy S7 edge Black Pearl (Lazada, Amazon) follows the popular Blue Coral and Pink Gold editions released last year.

The Beauty Of Ramadhan With Yaman Ibrahim

Kuala Lumpur, 24 June 2016 – When Samsung first introduced its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge to Malaysians, one of the features that took the nation by storm is its outstanding built-in camera. Many were looking for the perfect smartphone camera to take great shots in any condition; and much to their anticipation, Samsung’s latest flagship smartphones made users rethink what they can do with it.

One such fan to appreciate this remarkable camera in a smartphone is award-winning Malaysian photographer, Yaman Ibrahim, who has since begun his journey of capturing his country’s beauty with his Galaxy S7 edge.

Inspired by the holy month of Ramadhan and the customs that come along with it, Yaman embarked on a quest to uncover and showcase his unique perspective on how Malaysians celebrate Ramadhan as a prelude to the upcoming Raya festivities.

Yaman, who is based in Kuala Lumpur, harnessed his interest in photography since childhood. With a deep passion in all forms of photography, his new series “Colors of Ramadhan”, all shot with the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, perfectly encapsulated the culture, practices and traditions of the Ramadhan month.

“As a Malaysian, my goal is to provide an accurate representation of what my country is to me – in all its charm and splendour. The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge really was an extension of my being and my vision. It showed me more than what I thought a phone was capable of doing and I too was pleasantly surprised by the unexpectedly amazing shots,” said Yaman Ibrahim.

This photography series has touched face on what the lead up to Hari Raya is all about – the Malaysian culture and lifestyle, the joy of gathering together, the crowd of the evening bazaars and the peacefulness of prayers.

“When we designed the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, we wanted to ensure that it truly serves as the perfect lifestyle companion. Taking pictures during the day is great especially with sunlight as your natural lighting; however, the night holds just as much beauty. This is where the Galaxy S7 edge’s camera comes in – its superior quality helps users take stunning images regardless of the time of day,” said Mr Lee Jui Siang, Vice President, IT and Mobile, Samsung Malaysia Electronics.

As the world’s 1st smartphone to incorporate Dual Pixel technology, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are capable of producing photographs of DSLR quality; perfectly retaining every detail in the contrasting shades of Malay cuisine to the brilliantly intricate architecture of the mosques. So as the kids play with fireworks and sparks, the fast auto-focus means no more blurred shots when you need to take blink-of-an-eye moments!

Both front and rear cameras are also built with f1.7 lens, allowing more light in into the photo for brighter shots that essentially capture the pure absolute beauty and rich colours even under low-light conditions, making its camera performance unrivalled and one-of-a-kind. Its outstanding low-light shooting function uncovers a whole new perspective into Malaysia’s rich culture and nightlife, and like what many have said about this the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge – this game-changing smartphone never does fail to impress.

Interview Transcript

Q1. As leading Samsung Mobile business, what would be your missions to overcome the stagnant mobile market?

The mobile market has entered a new phase of maturity.

As one of the mobile industry leaders, my biggest mission is to keep offer new values and extended benefits of new technologies to our customers.

I believe that the mobile industry is shifting from just competing to produce a technology-driven device to providing a more life-essential tool and a gateway to stay connected to the world.

We should try something new, something that’s never done before in order to provide a beyond-satisfactory mobile experience to our customers.


Q2. How will you bring sound changes to Samsung Mobile business by leveraging your hands-on experiences? 

Throughout my entire career and life, I’ve always put “people” first.

Having them in my mind, I’d like to encourage active discussions and sound debates within the company for further improvements.

It eventually lead to a “cultural transformation”… I am visioning something like venture spirit injected into this big company.

I myself always try to listen first, think deeper, be generous to everyone, and win people’s heart.

I’d like to share this with my whole team as an acting leader as well as a new culture influencer.


Q3. How do you envision Samsung Galaxy brand for the users and customers? 

[adrotate banner=”4″]Samsung Galaxy has achieved meaningful and relentless innovation over the several years.

We have not accepted the imposed limits.

We have enjoyed adventures.

We are not afraid of limits, or fear the unknown and will always keep moving forward.

Our Galaxy brand philosophy is to try new things, new inventions.

A great example is the Samsung Galaxy Note, which opened the so-called “phablet” market, and we’ve done the same again with the “dual edge experience” of the Galaxy S6 edge smartphone.

Our mobile vision remains the same; relentlessly pursuing technology development that will help enrich people’s lives.

Our competitive spirit and drive to challenge ourselves is already in Samsung Mobile’s DNA.


Q4. Please tell us about the upcoming announcement in February 21. 

Samsung is always pushing the frontier of what’s possible.

Galaxy S7 is created to deliver a unique mobile experience in many ways.

I am very confident about the result for our hard works for the past several months and can’t wait for our consumers’ feedbacks.

I’d like to express my sincere and deep appreciation to my fellow colleagues who devoted hard works to come up with the Galaxy S7.
