What’s Samsung‘s next global achievement? This korean conglomerate (chaebol) continues to grow and expand products that we consumers want. Some of these products are sleek, sexy and stylish like their mobile phones. So what is the next step for Samsung?
Can they reach or even topple Apple? The proof will emerge in the next couple of years. Samsung spends billions of dollars on research and development from a revenue that most countries envy. There are two types of technology where Samsung will be able to steal the edge over Apple.
The first is in the mobile phones technology. Samsung has already invested in DRAM chips, liquid crystal display screen and mobile phones. It’s now combining these elements with “Graphene” technology. This smart phone uses technology that relies on layers of Graphene (sheets of carbon atoms) that is sandwiched together, protecting a layer of liquid crystal screen. Added to this is their DRAM chips. This new phone will have similar specs to the Galaxy SII. This will mean that the phone could be rolled up, survive hammer blows and maybe a cycle in the washing machine.
The other edge it has is in DRAM. The company has reduced the size of the chip as well as being able to use less power, its improved the speed. This provides a green memory solution. For mobile phone users, the benefit of this technology will seem minimal. The biggest impact will be in servers and businesses dealing in data warehousing. Combined with the motherboard redesign, this will allow input/output of data transfer at faster rates. As well as reducing those hefty power bills.
Other areas that Samsung have invested heavily in and thanks to the new environmental rules are solar power, LED lights and electric cars. They have also entered the exploding demand in emerging markets like medical devices and drugs. These new products can be combined with different industry elements to produce a global innovation solution. How do you think Samsung’s innovative products have made the world better?
