Analysis: the value of an environment
Samsung definitely isn’t shy of pressing out a suite of devices and add-ons along with its primary gadgets– it understands the value of providing not simply phones, tablets, smartwatches and all the rest, however likewise complementary items to go together with them.
Apple is blazing a trail here, with laptop computers and phones and smartwatches and tracking gadgets and streaming boxes, all working effortlessly with each other. Plus, there are a lot of main cases and battery chargers and cable televisions for users to choose through too.
You can see that this is something that Google is attempting to imitate. Google hasn’t constantly had the ability to get hardware right, however the Google Pixel 6 was viewed as a success for the business, and it’s drawing out the Pixel Watch also later on in the year.
One edge that Samsung does have over both of these rivals is that it has 2 reputable collapsible phones in its line-up– readily available in numerous colors and with different devices. While both Apple and Google are anticipated to release folding phones eventually, Samsung has a clear running start here.
