Report: Samsung to focus on budget phones, cut total smartphone shipments in 2016
The report adds that big things are expected in 2016 from the next iteration of the Samsung Galaxy A series, and the Samsung Galaxy J line. Having said that, the company still is counting on its flagship models like the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge to help it stay on top of the global smartphone market.
While the report says that Samsung is cutting smartphone production next year, it did note that the decline is not based on a drop in demand for Samsung branded handsets specifically. Instead, the Korea Times says that the entire smartphone market is suffering through a bit of a slowdown.
