Samsung has been a bit of a fire hose of new Android devices in recent years, with the company seemingly releasing a heavy flow of hardware that covers a wide range of sizes and specs. Faced with sagging profits in recent quarters, though, the company is planning to cut things back a bit.
Samsung says that it will offer fewer smartphones in 2015. Robert Yi, the firm’s head of investor relations, says that Samsung will reduce the number of smartphone models it offers by around 25 to 30 percent in 2015.
Samsung’s most recent earnings reports have shown that its profits have been dropping quite a bit, and while the company is still bringing in a truckload of cash, I’m sure that it doesn’t want to see its profits continue to fall in the coming quarters. Releasing fewer devices could certainly help Sammy cut costs, and it might be nice to see it show a bit more restraint in 2015.
Do you think it’s a good idea for Samsung to offer fewer smartphone models in 2015?
