Samsung News

Samsung is a huge company with a vast range of products and a global reach, but we have made staying up-to-date easy. All you have to do is sign up for the Samsung news email from Wiser. The South Korean company is one of the biggest electronics manufacturers in the world. Its products include mobile phones, tablets, digital cameras, televisions, printers, refrigerators and washing machines, plus industrial electronic equipment. It was founded in 1938 and its current chairman is Lee Kun-hee. The company sees its future growth markets in developing countries like China and India, so is producing products that will appeal to those markets, such as lower range smartphones. Its launch of the Galaxy S6 will also help it to compete with Apple's newest products, plus it continues to develop in other areas. This includes its operating system produced as an alternative to Android (called Tizen) and its goal of making its entire range of televisions internet connected by 2017. The technology industry is fast paced, and Samsung is at the cutting edge. To get the latest Samsung news about the company or its products, register today for the free Wiser daily email digest.
