Samsung’s latest shakeup will make for a tighter union of smartphones and cameras. That’s bad news for everyone else.
The Korean electronics giant, which reorganizes its businesses annually, this week told Korean media outlets that it plans to fold its camera operations into its wireless business. That will allow it to “integrate the technical know-how of the two business divisions” to differentiate its smartphones. It also will allow Samsung to use insight gleaned from its successful phone push to boost its position in the camera market.
We’ve contacted Samsung for information and will update the report when we know more.
