Samsung loans Galaxy Note 5 to tourists, brings business to home country


There’s an understood, though implicit, idea that says that a man’s character is determined by how he treats his mother, sister(s), and family. The same concept applies in business: a company’s character is judged not by how much money it makes or how much money sits in the bank, but how it gives back to its community, its home country. Samsung makes millions each year in sales, but the company’s never too preoccupied to give back to its home country, South Korea. The latest deal is designed to draw tourism into South Korea with a gift for those who make a trip to Samsung’s hometown.

Samsung, in partnership with SK Telecom, will loan a Galaxy Note 5 to each tourist who visit South Korea for five days (max), up to as many as 250 tourists each week who arrive in the country by way of South Korea’s Seoul-Incheon International Airport.

Samsung is partnering with SK Telecom and the Korea Tourism Organization to promote the best of South Korea’s mobile technology. It only makes sense, in this vein, to see why Samsung would loan Galaxy Note 5 smartphones to tourists: it isone of the best smartphones worldwide, not to mention South Korea.

The Galaxy Note 5 comes with a 5.7-inch, Quad HD (2,560 x 1,440p) display, Gorilla Glass 4 wrapped around the display and back cover, its own octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of storage, 5MP wide angle selfie front camera, 16MP back camera, and a 3,000mAh battery, with the Korean giant’s S Pen to boot.

Hopefully, these 250 weekly tourists to South Korea take advantage of Samsung’s latest Galaxy Note 5 features such as 1) Write on PDF, 2) Off Screen Memo, and 3) Samsung’s new Theme Store, which changes the Note 5’s visual impression of its icons and background. Additionally, Samsung’s award-winning 16MP back camera (ranked second according to photography and videography expert DxoMark Mobile) should provide excellent images in any setting.

Samsung is interested about bringing business to South Korea, but the Korean giant’s latest device (just before the Galaxy S7 is announced on February 21st) will, if all goes as expected, bring business to Samsung.
