On the contrary, Samsung is not experiencing the crisis. The company just announced it expects operating profit of $ 8.32 billion for January through March 2021, a 44% increase.
It is the mobile division that is pulling the company to the fore with the success of its new Galaxy S21 line, which has exceeded expectations in the six weeks following its launch in January. According to Counterpoint analysts quoted by Reuters, the starting price, which is $ 200 below the S20, appears to have worked largely in its favor. Here you will also find the test that we dedicated to these smartphones.
Samsung is also preparing for the future
Another source of satisfaction for the South Korean tech giant is winning the television and home appliances industry. It would have more than doubled in a year as consumers spend more and more time at home.
However, the microchip industry is a little worrying for Samsung as it grapples with the shortage that affects the rest of the world. We should know more about this when the company releases its detailed results later this month.
Samsung is far from stopping this well and is already working on the sequel. After launching a first folding phone in 2019, the company released three more in 2020, and that’s expected to continue. So it could offer a smartphone that folds into three parts.
The tech giant has never kept this ambition a secret, and several design avenues have been explored. When opened, the device can have a screen ratio suitable for mobile applications (16: 9 or 18: 9). Samsung is well advanced on these issues and could even offer foldable screens to other brands like Xiaomi or Google.
Finally, it should be noted that the company is also interested in 6G. In July last year, she published a white paper on the subject. It sells dreams at speeds up to 1000 Gbps and 100 microseconds latency.
