J.K. Shin to remain head of Samsung Mobile

But it looks like Shin will continue to have the key to the men's room at Samsung Mobile HQ, after all. A report published on Monday says that despite a 74% decline in telecom profits in October, the 58-year old executive will keep his post at Mobile, and remain one of the three co-CEOs of the Tech Titan. Besides the decline in profits, the company's global smartphone market share has declined to 24.7% from 35% in Q3, according to Strategy Analytics.
Shin has spent 30-years at Samsung, and has run the mobile business since 2011. Under his leadership, Samsung created the "Galaxy" line, and the company took over the top spot in global smartphone market share. But upstart competitors like Xiaomi are using pricing as a tool, to snatch business away from Samsung in certain markets.

Good to hear. This man single handedly sold me on a galaxy note 2 2 years ago and the Note 3 last year. No other phone can make me as happy My Note 4.

Shin should fire his whole marketing team. Make more consumer research and listen to people while making new practical innovations. And please junk the refrigerator design. If they can make S6 mini ditch the QHD, I'm gonna say goodbye waiting for Xperia Z4 compact.
