Gear S3 – Inspired by traditional timepieces and the art of
watchmaking, the Gear S3 smartwatch fuses timeless design with the
latest in mobile technology, including LTE and Bluetooth connectivity,
Samsung Pay, IP68 water resistance and built-in GPS.1

ArtPC Pulse – Samsung ArtPC Pulse is a stunning, powerful modular
desktop PC that consumers can customize through a unique pulse lighting
feature, as well as modules that expand and personalize the computing
experience to meet user needs and preferences.

Samsung Gear VR – The Samsung Gear VR, powered by Oculus,
continues to be the most enjoyable and comfortable mobile VR experience
available. With the Samsung Gear VR, consumers can play amazing games,
watch Hollywood’s best movies in their own private cinema, socialize
with friends new and old, be at the center of a suspense thriller and so
much more. The Gear VR drops users right into the action.2

Samsung Gear 360 – The Samsung Gear 360 is a powerful
high-resolution 360-degree camera that lets users capture 360 videos and
images, in a format that up until now was out of reach for many
consumers and businesses. Creating immersive content of key moments has
never looked better and been easier to capture.

Samsung 960 PRO SSD 2TB – The Samsung SSD 960 PRO 2TB is both the
highest performing and highest capacity NVMe-based consumer SSD in the
M.2 form factor with V-NAND technology that Samsung has released to
date. With the 960 PRO, professionals will stay ahead when it comes to
storage endurance, reliability and density than ever before. Using a
smaller form factor fit for ultra-thin laptops and PCs, users can take
their files with them – and access them at rapid speeds – on the go.
With the ability to survive up to 1.2 petabytes written, no other SSD on
the market today can compete with the endurance provided by the 960 PRO.

Samsung 850 PRO SSD 4TB – As the world’s first 2-bit MLC 4TB
consumer SSD, the 850 PRO is ideal for dramatically boosting PC
performance. With an industry leading 4TB capacity, users have more
space than ever before to store files locally. In particular, high data
consumption users such as content creators, gaming and PC enthusiasts
can upgrade their laptops and workstations from a hard disk drive to the
850 PRO SSD 4TB to surpass density limitations, reduce power
consumption, better support heavy write-intensive applications, and
improve PC and program load times.

Samsung PM971 512GB BGA NVMe SSD – Designed for use in ultra-slim
PCs, the ball-grid-array PM971 solid state drive weighs less than half a
penny and is about the size of a postage stamp. Its incredible
sequential performance enables the transfer of a 5GB-equivalent full HD
movie in about 3 seconds, and full download in about 6 seconds. The
PM971 is 15 times as fast as typical hard disk drives. Furthermore, the
industry’s first BGA NVMe SSD triples the performance of a typical SATA
SSD, within the industry’s smallest storage dimensions, with capacity
reaching up to 512GB per drive.
