It has been confirmed that Samsung will bet on 5G communications in 2020 to improve its wealth. People familiar with the matter said that as Samsung continues to provide 5G solutions to network operators in more countries around the world, the company also began to seek to launch Galaxy 5G smartphones in more than 40 countries by the end of the year.
Samsung commercialized Galaxy 5G smartphones in 22 countries last year. According to reports, in the whole year of 2019, Samsung’s global 5G smartphone shipments exceeded 6.7 million. This year, the company hopes to make 5G phones more accessible.
“In 2019, we captured the majority of the 5G device market share with over 6.7 million 5G-enabled smartphones shipped. In 2020, we will make 5G even more accessible as we bring Galaxy 5G-ready devices to twice as many countries. We want 2020 to be the year that every consumer experiences the benefits of 5G connectivity, starting with the Galaxy S20 series.”
Of course, all of this ultimately depends on the number of countries that implement 5G communications and the speed at which network providers are expanding. Therefore, this year, Samsung will be able to launch Galaxy 5G smartphones in more than 40 countries. This depends largely on the 5G commercialization timeline of each country/network operator, which in turn will affect Samsung’s 5G phone launch plan more or less.
Fortunately, Samsung is well-positioned for the application of 5G technology. The company is a major supplier of 5G network equipment in many regions. So the company’s mobile department can know very accurately how much it should invest in 5G every year. For sure, the next-gen Galaxy Note 11/20 series will support this technology.
