SIX INTERESTING FACTS I BET YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT SAMSUNG



Welcome to another interesting topic on haychsblog.
We will be talking about six important things I think you never knew on android.
Samsung is the leading phone brand in the entire world and I thought of sharing some facts I bet  you never knew about this top mobile manufacturer……

1.       SAMSUNG WAS DISCOVERED IN 1938 BY CEO BYUNG-CHUL-LEE.

it was first set up as a trading business which doesn’t specializes on electronics on different sectors of the consuming market, but 30-years later  they started getting into the tech-industry by creating mobile phones, televisions and refrigerators.

2.       THE MEANING OF THE S- IN ALL THE GALAXY PHONES

Have you ever wondered what the s in all Samsung galaxy phones means? I know most of you will think it means Samsung but you got it wrong. so what does it mean then?
it has a complete different meaning I bet you would never think of.
The s simply means SUPERSMART. So if you have a Samsung galaxy s9 you also own a Samsung galaxy supersmart 9, but the name is too long right? let’s keep it simple as Samsung galaxy s9

3.       ALMOST WENT BANKRUPT

Samsung almost went bankrupt in the year 1997 which made the company lay off 500 plus people which was almost a third of its total employees then.
most of their manufacturing jobs were moved to lower end countries like China, Brazil and Mexico.
But they survived it all and rose to become the top of the Smartphone companies in the entire world.
Never give up

4.       SAMSUNG CEO BYUNG-CHUL-LEE BURNED OVER $50 MILLION WORTH OF PHONES

in the year 1995 Samsung CEO Byung-Chul-Lee was not impressed about the terrible quality of their first cell phone and wanted to impress the customers by producing phones of high quality so he had to burn his entire inventory of phones worth over $50 million and forced factory workers to wear a head band which read QUALITY FIRST

5.       THEY WERE THE BRAND TO CREATE THE SECOND ANDROID SMARTPHONE

HTC was the first maker of the android Smartphone with the launching of HTC T1. it was after some months Samsung launched the second android Smartphone which was the Samsung i-7500 running on android 1.6 platform with a 3.2 inch screen with a 5mp rear camera.
it was the year later they launched the Samsung galaxy s series which is now the most popular android Smartphone.

6.       SAMSUNG HAD A CHANCE TO BUY THE ANDROID OS BUT THEY DIDN’T

in 2004 android founders were looking for money to keep their business moving so they approached Samsung to showcase their works but Samsung rejected the offer thinking that the company wont be able to survive and won’t be able to make a more quality operating system just as the CEO Byung-Chul-Lee said QUALITY FIRST.
So Andy Ruben android maker(Father of Android) approached Google with the idea, Google liked it and bought it for a sum of $50million and officially launched their joint work in the year 2008.
What would have happened if Samsung has bought the android platform?
