Dubai, United Arab Emirates –15 April, 2015: Eros Group, the sole distributor of world-renowned brands Samsung, Hitachi, TCL, Linksys and one of the leading players in consumer electronics, telecom, and allied multi-products in the Middle East achieved record breaking sales of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge within the first two days of its launch in the UAE.
Eros Digital Home was the first retail chain to open pre-bookings for the phones across its 33 stores in the UAE. Deepak Babani, CEO of Eros Group said, “Our first allotment of 22,000 units have been completely sold out and we are waiting for the second lot. The second allotment is expected to arrive in the next couple of days.”
Babani added, “Inquiries for the S6 Edge was more than S6 with 65 per cent for the Edge and 35 per cent for the S6 model. If the same ratio continues in the UAE, we may face shortage for the S6 edge model.”
Inspired by the works of glassblowers and artisan metalsmiths, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge represents a seamless fusion of glass and metal. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6Edge are the world’s first phones with a dual-edge display. Equipped with a 5.1” Quad HD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED display, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge provides an impeccably sharp viewing experience.
The phones’ 5-megapixel front and 16-megapixel rear cameras feature optical image stabilisation, fast tracking auto focus and an f1.9 aperture. Samsung’s fast charging technology also offers four hours of use with just 10 minutes of charging. These and a host of other features are a further improvement on the earlier series.
“Samsung has continuously evolved its product technology through user inspired innovation to make its mark as the world’s no.1 mobile manufacturer. At Eros Group, we have shared the Samsung vision for over 20 years and are committed to respond to the growing demands of our customers in the UAE and continuously strive to keep our finger on the consumer’s pulse,” said Babani.
