Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy phones were first launched on this day, 29 June
The phone is being reinvented today, according to Steve Jobs, speaking at MacWorld in San Francisco. The 9th of January, 2007. On June 29, 2007, the original iPhone went on sale to the general public in the United States, six months after Jobs made this statement. Because so many tech enthusiasts wanted to get their hands on this game-changing technology, there were inevitable lines and stock shortages. Two years later, on the same day, Samsung unveiled their first Galaxy phone, which was the world’s first device to use Google’s brand new Android operating system, which was released in 2009.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs scratched his personal iPhone’s screen only six weeks before the gadget was set to go on sale, and he insisted that the plastic screen be replaced with something more durable – which is how the glass screen came to be.
There were no third-party apps available, however, because the App Store did not exist until the Second Generation, which was introduced with the iPhone 3G a year after the first generation.
The release of the iPhone 1 was a watershed moment in Apple’s history in so many ways, and the announcement of the company’s latest generation iPhone is still one of the company’s most important events – and it’s no surprise given that it’s estimated that the iPhone 11 has sold 11 million units so far.
- Shortly after, Samsung announced the release of the Galaxy GT-17500, an Android smartphone that marked the beginning of more than a decade of bestselling Galaxy series smartphones for the company.
- Initially, the Galaxy phone was a tiny (4.5 inches square) gadget that relied on touch screen technology for navigation.
- Headphone plugs were also incorporated, which was a significant selling factor more than a decade ago.
- As a result of the introduction of these game-changing technologies, cellphones have become increasingly critical to all of us in so many facets of our daily lives, and it has become increasingly important to ensure that they are safeguarded at all costs.
- Wallet cases for the Galaxy Tab (Samsung’s first tablet) and a phone cover for the Samsung Galaxy SII were among the very first tech21 goods designed to work with a specific Samsung gadget.
- After that, we worked to refine our materials, and by the time the iPhone 4 was released in June 2010, both the iBand and the Impact Mesh had seen considerable improvements.
- Customer demand for more tough Patrol and Combat cases prompted us to broaden our product offering (and color variety!) in September 2012, and the latter of these was our first case to provide complete 360° protection with a built-in impact shield.
- In 2014, when the iPhone 6 was introduced, Tech21’s research and development teams had examined and identified all of the greatest shock-absorbing materials available, and they had created FlexShockTM, the world’s most sophisticated impact protection material, as a result of their efforts.
- With the addition of Evo Wallet, the waterproof Evo Xplorer, Evo Elite, and Impact Clear to our lineup of iPhone 6 cases, we were able to cater to a broader spectrum of customers than ever before.
- As the technology of the gadgets has advanced over the past six years, so has the technology of our devices.
As official partners of Apple and Samsung, we are proud to develop iPhone cases and Samsung phone covers that not only provide high levels of impact protection, but also hygienic protection. We anticipate continuing to collaborate with both firms for a long time to come.
This was the first Samsung cell phone ever
While thinking of Samsung, it’s difficult to avoid conjuring up images of the company’s extensive line of mobile phones. Year after year, the South Korean technology behemoth introduces dozens of new models, ranging from entry-level, budget-friendly gadgets to high-end, high-end devices. Moreover, they’ve been selling in the millions, pouring truckloads of cash directly into the company’s bank account on a regular basis. Is it possible for you to speculate about how Samsung’s mobile business came to be where it is today?
- Now you don’t have to wonder any longer.
- This is the very first Samsung phone ever manufactured.
- As a result, Samsung devoted two years in research and development for what would eventually become the company’s first hand-held cell phone.
- The Samsung SH-100 was made possible as a result of this development.
- It went on sale in Samsung’s native country of South Korea in 1988, just in time for the Summer Olympic Games in Seoul.
- Unfortunately, the Samsung SH-100 did not have a significant influence on the market, with sales of between 1000 and 2000 units recorded.
- Every year, despite the low demand, Samsung continues to provide new and improved cell phone models to the market.
A brief history of Samsung – the past, present and future.
It’s difficult to recall a period whenSamsungwasn’t a significant element of contemporary life. This technology behemoth is at the forefront of so many goods that we use on a daily basis. However, it hasn’t been all that long since Samsung was a relative newcomer to the market place. Competing against some of the world’s most powerful technology companies, such as Apple and Nokia. And they’ve ascended to the top of the Android market in a short period of time. As a result, we thought it would be interesting to look back at the history of Samsung phones.
SH-100 – the beginning.
Okay, so this isn’t the beginning of the story. The history of Samsung begins with its founding in 1938, when the company was established.
In addition, their electronics branch has been in operation since 1969. The SGH-100, on the other hand, has the distinction of being the world’s very first mobile phone, having been introduced in Korea in 1988.
SGH-600 – Entering Europe.
Samsung debuted the SGH-600 phone in September 1998, which was essential in the company’s entry into the European market. The SGH-600 was designed to appeal to buyers with basic, clean design sensibilities, and it was advertised as a “high-end” product. The strategy was successful, and the product sold well. As the accolades began to pour in, Samsung began to consider what would be the next great item to come along.
Samsung Galaxy – the next big thing.
Samsung debuted the SGH-600 phone in September 1998, which was significant in the company’s entry into the European market at that point. The SGH-600 was sold to “high-end” customers because it was designed to appeal to those with basic, clean design sensibilities. A good number of people bought it since the strategy was effective. After a series of accolades began to trickle in, Samsung began to consider its next major move.
Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus: Samsung’s best phones to date
The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, which were widely regarded as among of the year’s greatest smartphones, were outstanding. With their new Infinity display and dual-stereo surround sound speakers, they provided us with the most immersive viewing experience Samsung has ever provided. With a slew of new and enhanced technologies, Samsung has significantly raised the bar when it comes to cameras as well. The dual-aperture lens is one of our favorite aspects of the camera. It functions in the same way as the human eye, making adjustments in response to the quantity of light coming in.
And it wasn’t only us who were excited about the camera upgrades.
Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e
In 2019, the Galaxy S series celebrated its ten-year milestone. We were hoping that Samsung would pull something spectacular out of the bag to commemorate the occasion, and we were not disappointed. This year’s event presented us to three new members of Samsung’s Galaxy S family: the Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e. The Galaxy S10, the company’s flagship model, provided us with the premium Galaxy experience. New design, as well as an array of new technologies, such as a speedier CPU, professional-grade cameras, and Wireless Charging 2.0, are included.
- 5G technology became available in 2019, and Samsung was among the first to release a device that was 5G ready: the S10.
- This includes more processing power, a larger battery, additional cameras, and a larger screen.
- What’s not to like about a device that’s small, wonderfully designed, and jam-packed with cutting-edge Samsung technology?
- Now is the time to meet the new Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+.
Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra
The Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra were the first three devices released by Samsung to mark the beginning of the new decade. The S20 series of smartphones has been dubbed “the camera to end all cameras” because of its outstanding image quality. This is understandable given the genuinely great camera specifications and new technology available – Space Zoom, anyone?
And that’s not all: thanks to the new Exynos 990 CPU, the S20 series is also smoother and quicker than before. We should also point out that each and every one of them is 5G-ready. Interested in learning more? Visit ourSamsung Unpacked 2020: Everything You Need to Know page for more information.
From Galaxy S to Galaxy S21: A timeline of Samsung phones
(Pocket-lint) – a piece of lint found in a pocket. Samsung continues to be one of the most popular phone manufacturers in the world, and for good reason: their products are excellent. The company’s Galaxy Sflagship smartphonesoften are loaded with the latest technology, unique designs, and simple-to-use features that people have come to expect from Samsung. In addition to the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra, the Samsung Galaxy S21 has been announced as the company’s flagship phones for 2021, replacing the S20 versions from the previous year.
Samsung Galaxy S
The Samsung Galaxy S, which was first announced in June 2010, operated on Android 2.1 and had an 800 x 480 Super AMOLED display. A single-core 1GHz CPU and 0.5GB of RAM completed the package. The back camera had a resolution of 5 megapixels, but the front camera had a resolution of just 0.3 megapixels. The fact that Android could be customized was one of the things that truly struck out about it. Despite the fact that we’d seen portions of TouchWiz on previous smartphones, it appeared to operate well on the Galaxy S.
Samsung Galaxy S II
It was known as the Samsung Galaxy S II when it was introduced in April 2011 and had a screen resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, which was the same as that of its predecessor. The processor was upgraded to a dual-core 1.2GHz processor with 0.75GB of RAM, and the memory was increased to 1GB. This time around, the back camera has 8 megapixels, with a front-facing camera with 2 megapixels. With the Galaxy S II, Samsung finally accepted widgets, something that HTC and its competitors had been promoting aggressively.
Samsung Galaxy S III
In keeping with the Roman numbers, this model is officially known as the Samsung Galaxy S III. It was released in May 2012 and was the first in the series to include a high-definition (HD) screen. The fact that it had a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels was rather groundbreaking at the time. It also came pre-installed with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. At launch, the CPU was a 1.4GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM, but Samsung chose to stick with an 8-megapixel back camera instead. It had a somewhat more sculptural appearance than the previous phone, and it appeared as though Samsung was attempting to push the design a bit farther.
Samsung Galaxy S4
The Galaxy S4 was released in April 2013 and was the first Galaxy phone to do away with Roman numerals, which were never used when referring to Galaxy phones in the first place. It boasted a 5-inch Full HD display and was the first Galaxy phone to do so. It also increased the processing capability to a 1.9GHz quad-core CPU with 2GB of RAM, bringing the total to 1.9GHz.
The back camera has also seen an increase in resolution, now boasting 13 megapixels. The design sense that we’d developed with the S3 really showed through here: the Galaxy S4 was a fantastic phone that just looked and felt perfect in our hands.
Samsung Galaxy S5
The S5, which was released in April 2014, had a Full HD screen as well, although it was somewhat larger, measuring 5.1 inches (an LTE-A model eventually upped that to 2560 x 1440). A quad-core CPU running at 2.5GHz and 2GB of RAM were installed on the board. The back camera was also upgraded once more, this time to a 16-megapixel configuration. The Galaxy S5’s most fascinating feature, though, was the texture on the back of the device, which looked like a sticking plaster. At the time, Samsung was still employing detachable plastic backs on their devices.
Samsung Galaxy S6
The S5, which was released in April 2014, has a Full HD screen as well, although it was somewhat larger, measuring 5.1 inches in diagonal width and height (an LTE-A model eventually upped that to 2560 x 1440). With a quad-core processor running at 2.5GHz and two gigabytes of RAM, the device was powerful. The back camera was also upgraded once more, this time to a 16-megapixel unit. In terms of design, the Galaxy S5’s most fascinating feature was the texture surrounding the back, which looked like a plaster.
- The Samsung Galaxy S6 is the company’s finest achievement.
Samsung Galaxy S6 edge
The Galaxy S6 edge, like its stablemate, which was also unveiled in April 2015, had a 5.1-inch Quad HD display, an octa-core CPU, 3GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel back camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. A distinguishing feature is that the sides of the display are curved and wrap around to provide the illusion of no bezel, which was a revolutionary concept at the time.
- A review of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge: “Livin’ on the edge (not a prayer)
Samsung Galaxy S7
A 5.1-inch QHD display was included with the Galaxy S7 when it was first unveiled in February 2016. (2560 x 1440). It was similar to the S6 in that it was the flat-screen version of two phones, but it included a dual-pixel 12-megapixel camera for improved low-light shooting and a faster octa-core engine to make it even quicker. Samsung Pay was enabled on the phone, and it was capable of working with both NFC and magnetic strip technologies, among other things.
Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
A 5.1-inch QHD display was included with the Galaxy S7, which was released in February 2016. (2560 x 1440). With a 12-megapixel dual-pixel camera for enhanced low-light shooting and a quicker octa-core CPU, the S6 edge+ was the flat-screen variant of two phones, similar to the S6. There was an option for Samsung Pay on the phone, which could be used with either NFC or magnetic strip systems.
- It was introduced in February 2016 and featured a 5.1-inch Quad High Definition (QHD) display (2560 x 1440). It was the flat-screen version of two phones, similar to the S6, but with the addition of a dual-pixel 12-megapixel camera for enhanced low-light shooting and a quicker octa-core processor. Samsung Pay was enabled on the phone, and it was capable of working with both NFC and magnetic strip methods, if necessary.
Samsung Galaxy S8
A new feature on the Samsung Galaxy S8 was introduced for the first time: the Infinity Display, which refers to the fact that it has an edge-to-edge display with nearly no bezels. Additionally, the front-mounted home button has been relocated to the rear of the device, although in an inconvenient location – something Samsung should address with the S9. While there was also a second variation, the S8 Plus, which had a larger screen and a greater battery, the ordinary Galaxy S8 came with curved edges as a matter of course.
Samsung Galaxy S9
On the surface, the S9 appears to be a close copy of the S8 from last year. In addition to having that distinctively curved edge design, the phone has an OLED display with a 5.8-inch screen size and is once again water-resistant. As an added feature, the Galaxy S9 has AR emoji, which allows the phone to generate a 3D avatar of you by scanning your face and producing a variety of personalized emoji for you.
These can be used in place of standard emoji while conversing in applications such as WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, for example. Social. The Samsung Galaxy S9+, which released with the S9 and included a dual aperture primary camera, marked a significant improvement over the previous year’s model.
Samsung Galaxy S10
The Samsung Galaxy S10 was released in conjunction with the bigger S10+, the more cheap S10e, and a 5G-enabled device. The Samsung Galaxy S10e, the company’s flagship smartphone for 2019, had many of the design elements we’ve come to know and love. In addition, there were certain improvements made to this model, including the inclusion of market-leading ideas such as the UltraSonic fingerprint sensor. The inclusion of a triple-camera system, intelligent auto-camera recommendations, and wireless reverse charging makes this yet another flagship to be reckoned with.
Samsung Galaxy S20
Squirrel widget 184610 The Samsung Galaxy S20 is the company’s flagship smartphone for 2020. In addition, the S20+ and S20 Ultra come in a variety of higher-end configurations (below). While the Infinity Display idea is carried farther in the regular phone, it is nearly completely eliminated in the premium model. It also moves the front-facing punch-hole camera to the center of the screen. The S20 and S20+ have screens that are 6.2 and 6.7 inches in size, respectively, and have Quad HD+ (3200 x 1440) resolutions, respectively.
The upgrade to a 120Hz refresh rate for each screen, as well as triple-lens cameras on both devices, with the S20+ adding a Time-of-Flight camera, is perhaps the most significant generational jump.
- The Samsung Galaxy S20 is a regular-sized winner, according to our evaluation.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra
Squirrel widget 184581 Even though the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra features a massive screen – 6.9 inches, Quad HD+ (3200 x 1440), and 120Hz – it is likely to be known for its massive camera unit on the back. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is the flagship in the company’s 2020 lineup. In addition to a Time-of-Flight sensor, the Ultra is equipped with a 108-megapixel primary camera, a 48-megapixel 10x telephoto camera, and a 12-megapixel ultra wide camera. Furthermore, it has a 100x “Space Zoom” capability, allowing for some very spectacular long-range shooting.
These three covers will keep your iPhone 13 looking great while keeping it sleek and safe.

- Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra review: Is it the best phone ever or is it a disappointment?
Samsung Galaxy S20 FE
Squirrel widget 2682132 The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE was introduced as a more cheap alternative to the S10e, yet it did not feel any less impressive than the S10e. It is more reasonably priced than the S20 models, yet it has the same processing power – Snapdragon 865 on a worldwide scale – as the S20 models, as well as a fantastic display and the same camera capabilities. Although the construction is significantly less expensive and the display is flat, it represents excellent value for money.
- The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is the best of the group, according to our evaluation.
Samsung Galaxy S21
Squirrel widget 3816714 While the flagship phone line has evolved, the Samsung Galaxy S21 and S21+ represent a modest departure from the previous models. While they are somewhat less expensive than the S20 versions that will be released in 2020, there have been a handful of changes, including a reduction in resolution to 1080p only and the use of plastic rather than glass on the back. However, these are still strong flagship-level smartphones, equipped with a triple-camera setup and enabling adaptive refresh rates for the display, which means that even though the resolution is just 1080p, the device will give 120Hz.
However, by lowering down a notch, it implies that the S21 Ultra will be the undisputed flagship from Samsung in 2021.
- Review of the Samsung Galaxy S21: A little bit of history repeating itself
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra
Squirrel widget 3816752 While the majority of the emphasis will be focused on the massive camera unit on the back of the S21 Ultra, Samsung has attempted to divert the conversation to the Phantom Black finish of the device. It has a luxury design and feel, which is appropriate for Samsung’s flagship phone. Because the S21 models have been lowered in price, there has been a fresh focus on what the S21 Ultra has to offer, with the opportunity to improve on areas where the S20 Ultra fell short. As a result of new display technology and a reworking of the cameras on the back, Samsung hopes to reclaim its position as the flagship phone to be lusted for once more.

A Brief Timeline of the Samsung Galaxy S Series
In its first five months on the market, the Samsung Galaxy S2 sold more than 10 million copies, establishing the Galaxy S series as the flagship brand of Android smartphones and one of the most popular handheld devices on the market. The display on the S2 was larger and of higher quality than that on its predecessor, but its most praised feature was its light, thin design, which made the phone astonishingly simple to hold and use in hand. The tiny profile of the S2 was characterized as “a fantastic accomplishment of engineering” by Engadget.
May 2012: The S3 kicks off a series of battery innovations.
The Galaxy S3 was equipped with a 2,100 mAh battery, which was one of the largest smartphone batteries available at the time and was 40 percent more powerful than the battery found in the Galaxy S2, which was introduced two years earlier. With its high-performance Exynos Quad engine, the phone was able to endure the battery depletion, which was a significant achievement. Several additional features will be introduced in the next years, making battery life one of Samsung’s most important competitive selling advantages.
Later on, the S6 included adaptive fast charging, which allows customers to charge their smartphones more rapidly as a result of their location.
April 2013: S Health turns the Galaxy S4 into a fitness tracker.
It was the Samsung Galaxy S4 that was the first handset in the S series to come pre-installed with the S Health fitness tracker application. The software enabled users to keep track of their steps, sleep patterns, calories, and diet using the S4’s built-in pedometer, according to the company. In addition, the S4 set the framework for even greater fitness monitoring in the future thanks to its improved sensor. Samsung was one of the first businesses to offer a smartwatch when it debuted the Galaxy Gear later in 2013, and the Galaxy S5 was the first smartphone to include a built-in heart rate monitor when it released the Galaxy S5 later in 2014.
April 2014: S5 introduces water and dust resistance.
An additional layer of protection against dust and water was provided by a tiny cover that fit over the USB port at the bottom of the device on the Galaxy S5. So, for up to 30 minutes, the S5 was submerged in water up to one meter deep and was not damaged in the process. With the debut of the Galaxy S7, Samsung would provide even more protection against the elements, as it would be the first Galaxy S smartphone to receive an IP-68 classification.
Starting with the S7, Samsung Galaxy S phones are dust- and water-resistant for up to 5 feet of water for up to half an hour, respectively.
April 2015: The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge deliver the first metal design in S series history.
After a year of development, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in the spring of 2015. Both handsets were notable for being a change from prior models in the Galaxy S range. It was the first time in the series that a plastic casing and detachable battery were ditched, as had been the case with the prior five iterations. A metal frame and a glass backing were used instead of plastic, resulting in an exquisite design that, according to The Verge, “looks amazing and feels even better.” Both the S6 and S6 Edge also had 5.1-inch displays with a pixel density of 577 pixels per inch, which was far higher than the clarity of rival smartphones at the time of their introduction.
March 2016: The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge take the smartphone camera to the next level with dual pixel autofocus and the industry’s widest aperture.
Developed over several years, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge marked the pinnacle of Samsung’s camera technological advancements. The primary camera of the Galaxy S was a 5-megapixel one on the first generation model. Over time, the business would increase the number of sensors in its cameras, as well as make other significant improvements. Among the new features launched with the S3 was high dynamic range (HDR), which let users to capture more lifelike photographs. The S5 also added phase detection autofocus, which allowed users to record moving objects before they faded out of frame.
At long last, a 12-megapixel camera was added to the S7 and S7 Edge, which according to Business Insider is the “greatest smartphone camera ever built.
In addition, the S7 performed admirably in low-light conditions, thanks to an aperture of f/1.7, which was the widest available on any smartphone camera at the time.
April 2017: The Galaxy S8 and S8+ introduce the world to Infinity Display.
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ introduced a groundbreaking design feature known as “Infinity Display,” which was first introduced on the Galaxy Note 7. By eliminating the home button from the tablet, Samsung was able to stretch the screen to all four corners of the device, thereby covering practically the whole front of the device. Despite the fact that they featured screens of 5.8 and 6.2 inches, respectively, the devices were small and simple to hold as a result of this design decision. According to Gizmodo, the S8’s rounded edges and curves “give the illusion of a display that is just floating in the air or hovering just over your palm,” and the experience “feels like you’re gazing at a phone from the future.” A facial recognition unlock function, as well as an iris detection system, were also introduced in the S8 and S8+ to provide further protection.
March 2018: The Galaxy S9 and S9+ open new avenues for creative expression with improved low-light photography and personalized avatars.

In the words of Gizmodo, the S8’s rounded edges and curves “create the illusion of a display that’s simply floating in the air or hanging just over your palm,” and the experience “feels like you’re gazing at a phone from the future.” To further security, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy Note 8 Plus both have a facial recognition unlock capability, as well as an iris detection system.
February 2019: TheGalaxy S10 seriesdebuted for the 10th anniversary of the Samsung Galaxy S flagship line.
The Galaxy S10 series of smartphones was unveiled on February 20, 2019, during the “Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2019” press event in New York City. It is the tenth generation of Samsung’s Galaxy S smartphones. The Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ are distinguished by the size of their screens, as well as the addition of an extra front-facing camera on the S10+. A more compact variant, the Galaxy S10e, as well as a 5G-capable device, the Galaxy S10 5G, were also released by the company.
February 2020: The Galaxy S20 debuts with 5G, a 120Hz display and more.
The Galaxy S20 series is comprised of three models: the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra. Upgrades over earlier versions and better features include a display with a 120 Hz refresh rate, an upgraded camera system capable of recording in 8K quality, and a super-resolution zoom, among other things.
January 2021: The Samsung Galaxy S21 hits the market with the latest updates and includes 3 different devices.
For those hoping to get a head start on the new year with a cutting-edge phone, the Samsung Galaxy S21 will be available for presale on January 14, which is great news. The S21 series contains three models: the S21 5G, the S21+ 5G, and the S21 Ultra 5G. Space Zoom, Directors View, multi-lens camera systems and a long-lasting intelligent battery are among the features of these gadgets.

Samsung’s Smartphone History: From Zero to Galaxy S4
What a long way you’ve come, Samsung. The Korean electronics behemoth has been secretly working on smartphones for more than a decade, playing with Palm and Windows Phone, as well as its own Java-based quasi-smartphone operating system, before finally finding its footing with the Galaxy S series of handsets. Samsung, on the other hand, was propelled to success in the United States by the Galaxy S II. The Galaxy S II was marketed under that brand on three out of four major cellular carriers, allowing Samsung to launch extensive marketing efforts in support of the device immediately after its introduction.
- In contrast to its competitor Apple, Samsung continues to provide a diverse selection of smartphones in a variety of designs, sizes, and operating systems.
- The origins of Samsung’s Galaxy success can be traced all the way back to 2008, when the corporation began to stab at the notion of branded, full-touch smartphone interfaces with the Instinct andOmnia handsets, respectively.
- This was due to the fact that the Instinct ran on a bespoke, cobbled-together Java operating system that was unable to deliver the quickness and flexibility we have come to expect from a modern smartphone.
- Over the course of a decade, we’ve been examining Samsung mobile phones.

One of the world’s major makers of electronic products is Samsung, a South Korean firm based in South Korea. In addition to consumer and industrial electronics, Samsung manufactures a wide range of semiconductors, memory chips, and integrated systems, as well as appliances, digital media devices, semiconductors, and memory chips. This company has grown to become one of the most famous companies in technology, and it accounts for around a fifth of all South Korean exports.
Lee Byung-Chull established Samsung as a food trade shop on March 1, 1938, in Seoul, South Korea. Beginning in Taegu, Korea, he traded noodles and other items manufactured in and around the city, then exported them to China and its provinces, eventually becoming a multimillion-dollar enterprise. (The company’s name, Samsung, is derived from the Korean word for “three stars.” The next year, Lee extended his firm into textiles, eventually establishing the largest woolen factory in the country. During World War II, he concentrated significantly on industrialisation with the purpose of assisting his nation in its post-war reconstruction.
A few years later, the corporation purchased three of Korea’s top commercial banks, as well as an insurance company, cement and fertilizer manufacturing companies, and other businesses.
When the corporation developed its textile-manufacturing methods in the 1970s, it was able to compete more effectively in the textile sector by covering the entire line of production, from raw materials to finished goods.
Additionally, the corporation began investing in the heavy, chemical, and petrochemical sectors during the same time period, putting the company on a potential development path.
Samsung began joined the electronics sector in 1969 with a number of subsidiaries that were mostly focused on electronics. Their earliest products were televisions that were only available in black and white. It was in the 1970s that the firm began to sell home electrical items to other countries. Samsung was already a prominent manufacturer in Korea at the time, and it had purchased a 50 percent ownership in Korea Semiconductor, which was a key competitor. The fast rise of Samsung’s technological industries began in the late 1970s and continued into the early 1980s.
It was created in 1985 to meet the rising need for system development among enterprises.
Samsung was able to swiftly establish itself as a leader in the information technology services industry as a result of this.
Two research and development institutes were established by Samsung, which expanded the company’s technological line into areas such as electronic devices and components, semiconductors, high-polymer chemicals, genetic engineering tools, telecommunications, aircraft, and nanotechnology.

Samsung is the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer, as well as India’s most recognizable brand. Based on a thorough grasp of what people want and desire, it has made a commitment to inventing with its technologies in order to make future a better place.
