Samsung Electronics is building up to the launch of its latest Galaxy smartphone in February with billboards teasing its big unveiling event.
Every year, the technology industry gathers in Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), an event that often sets the agenda for the coming 12 months.
CES is the biggest technology show in the world but there has been one glaring absence since 1992 – Apple. However, the company’s decision not to attend hasn’t stopped it from leaving its mark in other ways.
The smartphone market is following the growth-challenged path of PCs. That won’t please executives at Samsung Electronics and Apple, but their pain might be great for consumers.
Samsung Electronics’ quarterly profit and sales missed estimates on sputtering demand for memory chips during the last three months of 2018, the same quarter that Apple reported anaemic sales in China.
Apple and Samsung announced a deal that only recently would have seemed unthinkable: the iPhone maker will begin offering iTunes movies and TV shows on its arch rival’s TV sets.
Samsung sprung a surprise ahead of the CES technology show by announcing a new TV partnership with long-standing rival Apple.
