Samsung is the undisputed smartphone king. No company sells anymore. But the end is already in sight. Samsung knows that too and is now gearing up for the future after the smartphone.
The really big leaps have become a rarity in the smartphone world. Hardware and software are mature and even changing to a new device every two years is no longer worthwhile for most consumers. This is a problem for electronics manufacturers, who have to use new products to compensate for the falling demand for smartphones. This is exactly what Samsung is preparing for.
