This year, however, reports say the company will be removing its name from handsets sold in China and it's homeland — South Korea — as well. Recent photos from Chinese certification agency TENAA reaffirm this, as we can clearly see that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge smartphones that passed certification and were pictured do not have the Samsung name on their foreheads. Promo posters for the South Korean market also depict the two smartphones with no Samsung logo on their fronts.
At this point, one can only guess what the reason for this move is. Unlike the case with Galaxy S6 units in Japan, which were only marketed as "Galaxy", the S7 smartphones will still have the Samsung name printed on their backs. One would guess that if Sammy wants to flaunt its name on the front of its flagships, its home country is precisely the market that should receive such units, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
What's your take on the reasoning behind this move?
