Samsung Electronics plans to introduce its new line-up of NFC-enabled printers in Egypt by mid-June 2014; including the color laser printer Xpress C1860 series and the mono-laser printer Xpress M2885 series. These printers mainly target home offices as well as Small and Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs) to accommodate their requirement for high volume printing and compatibility with a several IT devices.

“We are proud to have built on our 2013 NFC-enabled printers with these faster and more advanced models designed specifically for SMBs,” said Harris Kwak, Enterprise Business Manager of Samsung Egypt. “As mobile becomes more central to the everyday working environment these NFC-enabled printers let SMBs conduct their business seamlessly.”

The Xpress C1860 series includes the C1810W color laser printer and Multifunction Printers (MFPs) C1860FW which offers print, copy, scan, and fax functionality through the NFC or WiFi Direct connections. On the other hand, the Xpress M2885 series includes the M2835DW mono laser printer and MFPs M2885FW which also offers print, copy, scan, and fax options.

These printers enable easy and convenient mobile printing for users with outstanding print speeds: 28 pages per minute (based on A4 size) from the mono laser printers and 18 pages per minute (based on A4 size) from the color laser printers.

The Xpress C1860 has a dual CPU (533MHz main processor and 150MHz sub-processor) and a memory size of 256MB (upgradeable to 512MB), while the Xpress M2885 has a 600MHz processor and 128MB memory.

Moreover, Samsung added the ‘Easy Print Management’ function for mobile devices; something which used to be available only on PCs. Coupled with the NFC function and the Samsung Mobile Print app, the new range allows SMBs that don’t have a specialized IT department can now easily monitor device information, status, and usage of consumables.

Since the introduction of the world’s first NFC-enabled printers in 2013 - the Xpress C410W series, Samsung has continued to strive to provide the most convenient mobile printing experience possible. Both of Samsung’s new printer ranges feature NFC and Wi-Fi Direct technologies that allow users to easily and securely print documents, images, and even social media feeds by simply tapping on the document to be printed on their smartphones.

Users can even scan the documents and send them directly from the MFPs to their smartphones without having to send files via email or PC.
