What Are Samsung Preparing for the Rest of 2017?

For the South Korean tech giant Samsung, 2017 is a year FULL of promises

An innovator throughout its long existence, the company has always managed to reach commercial success through its technological breakthroughs. A trailblazer worthy of following for its competitors and a source of quality electronics for its customers, Samsung has a lot to live up to this year as well. 


Less tangible but with an immense impact, the digitalization efforts and innovations of Samsung have gone unnoticed, lost in the web of smartphone announcements. The fact is that every single one of the company’s devices is seamlessly integrated into an end-to-end offerings system of devices, solutions, and services. 

The corporate citizenship and digital-centered classes offered by the Samsung School, the development of the Samsung ARKTIK Platform, and its exclusive account features, the Tizen 4.0 system, the fourth-generation SMART signage, the Samsung Incubator start-up program in Poland and others lead to interconnectivity between the physical and the digital as never before. 

With a high processing power, multiple digital innovations, and a seamless login process, the company is bound to double its customer base in the nearby future. 


Galaxy Note 8 
As the flagship of development and making up much of the profit for Samsung, smartphones are definitely the focus of the company. First and foremost, coming back from what it can be called its biggest flop – the “explosive” launch of the Galaxy Note 7 – Samsung is definitely launching the Galaxy Note 8 in 2017.

Woah! and is capable of 3D Print!

With an expected release date in October or November, the Galaxy 8 has been wrapped in rumors ever since it was first announced, some going as far as attributing it with a fully foldable screen. Extremely well reviewed, the coming out of the new Galaxy model is a certainty of 2017. 

The smartphone will be the bearer of Samsung’s new visual language concept, a perfect synthesis of the external and digital space. However, Samsung’s projects are manifold, and almost all promise innovation in its highest degree. 

Still in the realm of smartphones, the foldable model itself – now rumored to bear the name Galaxy X – has been a project of Samsung since 2011 and it was presented at CES 2013 as the “Youm”. However, such a phone is still far from being made available for commercial purposes. 

More tangible are the new J7, J5, and A5 models, with release dates to be announced later this year as well. 

Forward-looking by definition, Samsung is still proud of its past, and it is willing to satisfy particular demands in the market with a new, updated premium version of a flip phone. Named W2017, it combines a retro design with the features of a modern smartphone. Equipped with the same chipset that powered the Galaxy S7, this phone also includes:
  •  Fingerprint scanner to authenticate contactless payments via Samsung  Pay
  •  A12-megapixel rear camera and 64GB of internal storage. 
Another expansion of the Tizen ecosystem promoted by Samsung comes in the form of the Z4 model. Centered on faster than before network connectivity, an optimized camera, and enhanced usability, the Z4 is the embodiment of smartphone simplification. All of the prime features have been kept and integrated with an easy to use a framework, unlike the ever more complicated usual smartphones. 


Despite being known nowadays especially for its line of smartphones, Samsung has many other developments in other areas. One of these is the design and production of TVs. Already at the top when it comes to quality, the company has taken TV design to the realm of arts. 

In 2016, furniture designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec created the Serif TV, which was later unveiled at the Museum of Modern Art in the US. In March 2017, Samsung took it a step further, releasing a television that also functions as a piece of art on the wall.

At CES 2017 in Las Vegas, Samsung came prepared with the new QLED TV lineup. Stylish, detailed and with lifelike quality, the QLED TV is an innovation in itself, combining function with form. 

Aside from innovating in separate and singular fields, Samsung’s operations stretch across several domains and fields. However, the goal is the same – to create a reunited, integrated system of devices and solutions to better life as we know it. 

For the company, 2017 represents a big step forward in that direction!
