Samsung outsources production of budget Galaxy phones

Samsung is outsourcing production of budget Galaxy phones to ODMs.

 

The company wants to reduce costs to be more competitive in markets like China and India by contracting companies to produce some devices for Samsung.

Samsung launched two new Galaxy A series phones in China today, the Galaxy A6s and the Galaxy A9s, via SamMobile. The Galaxy A9s is just a renamed Galaxy A9 for the Chinese market, so it’s still the same mid-range phone with a whopping four cameras on the back. What’s more interesting is the Galaxy A6s, which is Samsung’s first ODM phone, or one produced by another company. According to The Korea Herald, Samsung had been in talks to outsource production of its mid- to low-end Galaxy phones to Chinese original design manufacturing company Wingtech, which produces Xiaomi phones.

The Galaxy A6s has two 12MP cameras on the back, and one 12MP front camera. The screen is a 1080p 6-inch Super AMOLED display. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 660 chip, and has 6GB of RAM, with 64 and 128GB storage variants. It starts at CNY 1,800, which is about $260 USD, but the phone will most likely only be available in China for now.

 

The first phone to be produced in this manner for Samsung is the new Galaxy A6s with a Snapdragon 660, more RAM than the S9, a 1080p screen and a low (ish) price tag.

It’s been reported by Strategy Analytics that Samsung has less than 1 percent of the share in the Chinese market, leading Samsung to consider shutting down one of its two factories in China, while it looks increasingly to ODM firms to cut costs on manufacturing.

 

Definitely interested if they will do this with the J series as well as those devices are fairly popular. Although it will be sad to see future low end Samsung devices looking like Xioami devices.

It is not like the A, and especially J series were any good bang for the buck.  Or even mostly good phones at all. There are plenty of better options out there but you know, the brand sells. If they manage to reduce the price they might actually be competitive. Now they just aren't. 

The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

Only reason anyone used a budget Samsung was because of brand. Hopefully cheaper production means they are no longer a far inferior option for the same $

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.
