Samsung is now afraid of Huawei. The manufacturer would have decided to present its Samsung Galaxy S10 one week before the MWC 2019, so as to avoid the shadow that would make him the collapsible smartphone of the Chinese manufacturer.
Samsung did not have a great year in 2018. On the contrary: its results have fallen, the fault of Chinese competitors ever more aggressive.
The first of them is none other than Huawei, which shot with the P20 Pro and the Mate 20 Pro stole the show on its Galaxy S9 and Note 9. For 2019, the Korean manufacturer would be ready.
The Samsung Unpacked Galaxy S10 would be advanced
According to a new report from the Korean newspaper The Korea Herald, reported by Phone Arena, Samsung has decided to advance its event The Unpacked announcing its future Galaxy S10. It will take place one week before the Mobile World Congress 2019, probably between February 18th and 21st.
The reason put forward would be that the builder fears that Huawei will eclipse it again. It seems that the Chinese brand has planned to present its first collapsible smartphone at the Barcelona show, so that it would be a huge shadow to its competitors by pure announcement effect.
No more falling asleep
This report is obviously to be taken with a lot of tweezers, but does not seem as far as capillotracté. In 2019, Samsung must now be humble, its position number one in the mobile market is no longer as firmly anchored as before.
No more resting on its laurels and ignoring its competitors. In this case, if this strategy is proven, it would allow him to guarantee a frontal and fair duel with the rival whose Samsung can no longer ignore the assaults.
As for collapsible smartphones, Samsung confirmed at CES 2019 that its Galaxy F was ready to go into production and would come out in the first half of 2019. This is another new field that it will have to fight, but its lead should give it a certain advantage.
