Last evening Jati Transport Sdn Bhd and Standard Chartered Brunei held an exclusive launch on the new compact cars from Mercedes-Benz at the Mercedes Autohaus.

It was the launch of the all-new A-Class Sedan and the CLA Coupè. Both look dynamic and modern with eye catching looks especially the Shark Nose with the sparkly Diamond Grille.

The Mercedes-Benz CLA has the very latest driving assistance systems with cooperative driver support and thus provides the highest level of active safety in the segment with functions adopted from the S-Class.

The latest Mercedes-Benz A200 sedan is the smallest Mercedes Sean but still packs a premium punch. This model will definitely appeal to both traditional and the younger crowd due to its classic look with modern technology.

Customers will also appreciate the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) by saying “Hey Mercedes” and you can take command of the lighting and the climate control.

Present during the launch were Thomas Heilmaier, Deputy Head of Mission, German Embassy Brunei Darussalam, Pg Anak Hj Ja’afar Ibni Almarhum Pg Pemancha Pg Anak Hj Mohd ‘Alam, Jati Transport Sdn Bhd Executive Chairman, Pg Aki Ismasufian Pg Hj Ibrahim, CEO of Standard Chartered Bank Brunei and Mr. Andrew Chiam, Executive Director of Jati Transport Sdn Bhd.

Both the CLA Coupé and the A-Class will be avail be for test drive today and tomorrow (Sunday) at the Mercedes-Benz Autohaus from 9am to 5pm and refreshments will be served.

The All-New Powerful Samsung Galaxy Note 9

The all-new powerful Note SAMSUNG Galaxy Note 9, coming to Brunei soon

Big exciting news normally comes with there’s a new flagship model of either a Samsung or iPhone. Today, let’s talk about the latest edition to the Samsung family – the all-new powerful Note SAMSUNG Galaxy Note 9.

Incomm has already announced it’s pre-order online on their website and there are already a buzz going around because of the cool deals they offer especially when you signed up with Standard Chartered credit card promo (EVEN BETTER deal). Well, more on that later. Let’s talk about the phone itself first.

Mind you, I am not a big fan of huge phones and the only Samsung phone I owned is the Galaxy Edge 7 and it was already a good smartphone for everyday use. Now comes an entirely big smartphone or I would label as phablet.

Let’s see what the specs are according to the website and marketing materials. It definitely has the biggest screen to date and what’s new is the stylus which now has a remote capability. As for capacity, it has the largest to date as well if you choose the 512GB edition. The standard one is 128GB. It has the biggest battery life too, 700mAh better than the previous model, beefing it up to 4,000mAh. That’s quite handy for a person like me, a high user of social media which technically drains the battery on my phone.

These are just some of the quick takeaways I can mention for now until I get to play around with the demo unit which will be arriving pretty soon in Brunei waters. Gone are the days when the Note 7 caught into trouble but now with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, it has redeemed itself and ready to give a good challenge to the iPhone X which has been a huge success worldwide.

According to the reviews on certain websites, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is definitely the benchmark of all smartphones because of its battery life span and also its super high memory ram of 6 to 8G (amazing). The only thing now is for those with the Note 8 if they were to upgrade to a Note 9, would it make a huge difference? I do believe those who haven’t own a Note would definitely appreciate this powerful phablet.

For me, the biggest selling point would be the battery life span and the storage (up to 1TB, 512GB internally and 512 external). Some would argue of the price tag but fret not because check out Incomm’s pre-order deal as well as what Standard Chartered has to offer for those who are hungry for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (Read further below).
