|Our top three contents this year were about Samsung’s Buyers Laboratory (BLI) awards, printing industry awards that recognize outstanding products based on rigorous laboratory test results. We’re proud to say that we’ve won BLI awards every year since 2011. Summer 2015 was especially meaningful, with our entire MultiXpress 7 series winning the Pick award, plus, awards for the MultiXpress K4350 and ProXpress M4580FX.The MultiXpress 7 is Samsung’s flagship A3 MFP series, with the world’s first Android interface for printers. Its remarkable speed and print quality garnered the following review from BLI: “Buyers looking for highly reliable MFPs with top-notch print output need look no further than Samsung’s MultiXpress colour X7400, X7500 and X7600 Series, and monochrome K7400, K7500 and K7600 Series.”
It’s not just the awards that prove Samsung Printing Solutions’s brand value; it’s the applause we received from our LinkedIn followers—printing industry dealers, partners, and end users—that really showed that we’re doing things right as a leading print brand.

|#6 Traditional Scanning vs. Camera Scanning (July 12, 2015)|

|When Mobile Print was upgraded this summer, we published this post to highlight its new camera scanning feature. The photo on the right was taken when we were testing the camera scanning feature on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Convenient and easy scanning done straight from your mobile device.
This content not only gained over 100 likes but also generated a heated discussion, with followers sharing both positive and negative opinions on the camera scanning trend. We always appreciate when our followers share their thoughts, as they are valuable in developing user-friendly products and solutions.
|#7 International Design Excellence Awards 2015 (August 26, 2015)||#10 iF Design Awards 2015 (March 3, 2015)|
|Our concept designs won four awards at IDEA 2015! Read more about the concepts behind these innovative office printer designs: https://lnkd.in/eaf5QM3||MX4 Multi-Function Printer Strikes Gold at iF Design Award! This makes us the 1st in printing industry to receive iF Gold for both A4 and A3 printers. Meet our proud 2015 iF Design Award winners! https://lnkd.in/bRWjcE8|
|It’s easy to assume that efficiency is the only important factor in a practical device such as an office printer, but design is a key element, too. This is because if the device is not designed for easy use, it lowers an office’s productivity.
Samsung strives to create printer designs with the user at the center, based on Principal Designer Seungwook Jeong’s philosophy: “We believe design is so much more than just visual appeal—just like any product design, a printer design should consider the needs and lifestyle of the user.”
Our wins of major design awards such as the iF and the IDEA are not only a testament to our excellence in design but also users’ recognition of the importance of good design in a printer.
