This morning, Samsung’s President and Head of Mobile Dr. TM Roh made an editorial on what the company plans for 2021
To be fair, the post is a lot of business language, no doubt intended to get people thinking about Samsung as the tech press world prepares for the all-digital CES news broadcast. But there are some specific highlights hidden in it. Roh says Samsung will “expand our portfolio of foldables to make this groundbreaking category accessible to everyone.” In this context, ‘accessible’ means ‘cheaper’. but considering Samsung’s cheapest foldable phone at $ 1300, there’s a lot of wiggle room.
He went on to say, “We’ve also been highlighting people’s favorite aspects of the Galaxy Note experience, and we’re excited to add some of the most loved features to other devices in our range.” That indicates that the Galaxy Note series’ S-Pen functionality is likely to come to the Galaxy S. Rumor has it that the Galaxy Note is on the chopping block as Samsung focuses its high-end development on foldable screens.
In between its commitment to 5G expansion, “AI” capabilities and further development of camera technology, Roh said the company will introduce new technology for connected cars. There is also a little about “quick locating.”[ing] the things that matter most, from your keys to your wallet – even your pet. “Samsung already sells a SmartThings Tracker with integrated GPS for tracking children and pets, but the listing of keys and wallets could indicate a new Tile-style short range tracker product. to work.
We will almost certainly see some of these declared products in early 2021, around the usual dates of the CES and Mobile World Congress shows (all digital thanks to COVID). Either then, or with Samsung’s own Unpacked presentations, which are usually simultaneously.
