Samsung regularly attends all kinds of technology conferences to showcase its brand new products and technologies. The annual CES, which is held annually in Las Vegas in January, is no exception. It starts on January 5, 2022, and the South Korean giant is unlikely to bring any important products there.
Samsung has announced that it will host a “Together for Tomorrow” presentation on January 4, Day 0 of CES 2022. It will feature the company’s vice president and head of the mobile division to tell a wider audience “how they can help build a more sustainable planet”. Pledged to “demonstrate personalized and connected experiences that can enrich people’s lives.”
With a high degree of probability, on January 4, the company will hold a presentation of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE. The smartphone should receive a Dynamic AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz with a diagonal of 6.4 inches, a Snapdragon 888 and Exynos 2100 chipset, 6/8 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB of storage, a 32-megapixel front camera and a 12 MP triple rear camera + 12 Mp + 8 Mp. The battery capacity should be 4370 mAh and promise fast charging with a capacity of at least 25 watts. The smartphone should be the first device from the company with Android 12 out of the box.
Apple to overtake Samsung to become the world’s largest smartphone supplier in Q4, analysts say
Apple may overtake Samsung to become the world’s largest smartphone supplier in the fourth quarter. This forecast was presented by the analytical company TrendForce based on supply chain data on the scale of smartphone production. According to analysts, Apple’s share of the smartphone market will reach 23.1% in the fourth quarter of this year.
It is expected that both strong iPhone demand during the holiday quarter; and better control over the supply chain than its competitors will help Apple to break out of the leadership. TrendForce says that despite some improvements, economic uncertainty and component shortages continue to hold back smartphone sales. However, negative factors affected Apple to a much lesser extent than other smartphone manufacturers. In the third quarter, the company unveiled four iPhone 13 series devices. In the same third quarter, iPhone production increased 22.6% from the previous three months to 51.5 million units.
The Holiday Quarter is a period when analysts expect Apple to be particularly successful. TrendForce, based on supply chain reports, suggests that Samsung, Oppo, Xiaomi and Vivo will all see a decline in sales; while Apple’s share will grow from 15.9% in the third quarter to 23.2% in the fourth. So, this will be enough to overtake Samsung and take the leading position in the global smartphone market.
