By Now everyone has realised that the Note 7 fate has been sealed.It will live on in our hearts as a device that Might Have been.With Samsung looking at an estimated 17 Billion USD in losses-Ouch that is quite the Hit to take,however ,Samsung has a very diversified Portfolio and while it looks bad on Paper, Samsung will weather this Storm and Move on,Macquarie Research analyst Daniel Kim said, he sees “little collateral damage” to Samsung’s component divisions.Samsung, has a highly diversified business, which includes smart appliances, such as refrigerators, as well as television displays and a chip-making unit. Last quarter, its semiconductor business comprised 23.5% of total revenue. Its consumer electronics division, which includes its digital appliances, printers and health and medical equipment, comprised 23% of sales.
Apple Should actually be more worried,since Apple is much more reliant on its handheld devices than Samsung is on its family of Galaxy phones and tablets, according to an analysis of both companies’ most recent earnings reports.
Samsung has apparently Purchased a little known company Called Viv.Viv is a digital assistant developed by the maker of Apple’s Siri.Inspite of the Beating that Samsung has endured with the recent Samsung Note7 Recall.With the recent launch of the Pixel Phone by Google which highlighted focus on an AI digital assistance function Samsung is looking to bridge that gap.
The deal showcases Samsung’s commitment to virtual personal assistants and is part of the company’s broader vision to deliver an AI-based open ecosystem across all of its devices and services,the South Korean Giant said.
Viv was founded by AI visionaries Dag Kittlaus, Adam Cheyer and Chris Brigham. As part of the acquisition, the founding team will work closely with Samsung’s Mobile Communications business, but continue to operate independently under its existing leadership.
It remains to be Seen whether this acquisition will be a fruitful one for Samsung and hopefully help it carve its niche in the ever-growing AI market and hopefully catch up or even surpass Google Pixel.
