Samsung may shift production from China

Published

on


The number of Samsung Electronics employees in China eight years ago climbed to 60,000 but now has dropped to 10,000, according to a Samsung report released on July 6.

The number of employees in South Korea for Samsung has increased by 20% in the past five years due to the growth of semiconductor factories in Korea. 

Analysts say that Korean companies are slowly shifting production bases to Vietnam and India because of additional regulations and discrimination from the Chinese government, while another factor is the increasing unit prices.

What Samsung’s Report Says:

  • According to Samsung Electronics’ 2022 Sustainability Report, in Q4 2021, a no. of 17,820 people performed at the firm’s subsidiaries in China. Which saw a decrease of 70. 6% from the high of 63,316 in 2013. 
  • The crew in China dropped below 60,000 in 2014, under 50,000 in 2015, and 40,000 in 2016 and 2017 when the THAAD incident broke out. 

What is the THAAD issue? The same month in 2016, the U.S. and South Korea announced the alliance decision to deploy a U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile battery in South Korea to defend against the increasing North Korean missile threat.

Following this, the Workforce stoop even further when due to the commerce dispute between the United States and China, i.e. less than 30,000 in 2018 and 2019, and below 20,000 in 2020 and 2021.

During this period, Samsung Electronics pared its factories in China. They were ;

The communications factory in Shenzhen in May 2018 and its smartphone factory in Tianjin in December of the same year suffered the closing.

Factory in Huizhou in 2019 was the last to go, the smartphone production headquarters in China.

Following this, in July 2020, the company also closed its computer manufacturing installations in Suzhou. 

The Future:

Currently, these factories and production facilities have been moved to Vietnam and India, with China having only three facilities at this point.

They are a home appliance factory, a semiconductor back-end processing plant in Suzhou, and a memory semiconductor factory in China. Xi’an.

Samsung has been hit by high tariffs following the US-China trade dispute, policies focused on domestic demand, and rising labour costs. Tariffs are taxes levied on goods or services imported from another country. 

Tariffs are trade obstacles that inflate prices and reduce available quantities of goods and services for the U.S., businesses, and consumers.

The strict blockade policy for the pandemic has hindered Samsung’s stable business in China.

The South Korean tech giant is expected to discontinue acquisitions of the in-home appliance and semiconductor manufacturing leftover facilities in the Dragon’s Den.

Although, this could be seen as a profiteering opportunity for still developing and potential holder countries like the land of tigers, culture & spirituality, India.

Samsung’s Relumino Mode Now Available on Galaxy Phones

Published

on


Samsung is adding one more functionality, ‘Relumino Mode’, from its smart TVs to its Galaxy smartphones for users’ overall viewing experience. 

The Korean giant introduced the Relumino Mode feature on Samsung Smart TVs, which enhances the viewing experience for people with low vision. It improves particular parts of the content on the TV’s display, such as contrast, color, and sharpness. Now the giant has decided to bring Relumino, an accessibility feature, from TVs to particular Galaxy smartphones, which it initially showed off at CES 2023

Somewhere, Relumino Mode’s functionality and features appear similar to the color contrast setting that was earlier available to access now with Android 15 Beta 2. In a new blog post, Samsung wrote, “Relumino Mode is the product of years of research and development to advance Samsung’s goal of providing “Screens for All” and improving the viewing experience for those with limited vision,” which highlights a range of accessibility features that it delivers. 

However, at the moment, it’s not clear whether this feature needs specific display hardware or if it’s purely a software-side update. According to Samsung’s blog post, the Galaxy S24 series “and beyond” should be able to access Relumino Mode now. The feature appears on the Galaxy S23+ devices that are running One UI 6.1, but unfortunately not on the Galaxy Z Flip 5 or the Galaxy Z Fold 4, even after running the same interface. 

Owners of Galaxy phones with One UI 6.1 can easily check if the new convenient mode is available on their device or not by just following the steps mentioned here: go to Settings >> Accessibility >> Vision Enhancements >> Relumino outline. 

On the other hand, Apple also introduced new accessibility features that should land later this year, which include eye tracking to control iPhones and iPads.

Samsung Mocks Apple iPad Pro’s ‘Crush’ Ad With Artistic Response

Published

By


Samsung and Apple are the two biggest rivals of each other in the tech industry, as both brands never miss the chance to put down each other’s firm. Now the Korean giant has published a new commercial for its current flagship tablet, and the key reason behind this is pretty clear: to throw a dig at the competition. 

Apple introduced a new iPad at a lunch event on May 7th. During the event, the giant also showed a commercial called ‘Crush’ that resulted in a lot of controversy. 

Apple showcases a hydraulic press physically crushing musical instruments, paints, books, camera lenses, and more ahead of evidently revealing an iPad Pro, unfortunately, which backfired. Creative professionals saw a profound sense—a metaphor for technology replacing traditional forms of creativity. Many felt the impoliteness of artists and their professions, especially considering the rise of AI-powered art creation. 

However, every single person is free to have their own opinion, but Apple’s intention was beyond question—not this, but more to show how the new device in the house was able to encompass a whole series of tools and elements. Not only this, but the firm was forced to apologize publicly, removing the commercial from television publication. 

On the other hand, Samsung took all this fuss as a golden opportunity and capitalized on Apple’s controversial “Crush” ad, and Samsung released a counter-ad in which a musician walking through the wreckage left by Apple’s hydraulic press then picked up a partially destroyed guitar and started playing music. The center-worthy point of the ad is a Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra housed on a tripod nearby.
