The future of Samsung – adjustable smartphones?
At a conference on Saturday we heard Dennis Miloseski, the head of Samsung Design in the USA, speak of the future of the company. According to him, the future devices created by the big Korean manufacturer will be based on the experience of the customers with their technology. Samsung won’t put the emphasis on the design, but on providing the users with reliable and useful way to communicate, interact and connect to each other.
According to Dennis Miloseski, the future devices by Samsung will be able to understand where the user is and will adjust according to that information. He gave an example with the Smart functions, supported by the front camera of Samsung Galaxy S4 – it is able, for instance, to stop the video you are watching, if you turn your eyes away. Miloseski also said that the hardware is sure to improve in the future, but the big aim for Samsung is to improve the device itself and to give it a soul.
The question of the plastic chassis of Samsung Galaxy S4 was also brought up. The discussion was based on the fact that the new flagship of Samsung uses a plastic body, instead of metal like some other mobile phones out there. According to Miloseski, no one in Samsung is starting work on a device with a plan to create a metal or a plastic device. According to him, the material is selected on the base of different trials, preferences and tastes, and in correspondence with the final design.
Miloseski made it clear that Samsung doesn’t want to offer its customers glass and beasty hardware. The aim of the Korean giant is to redirect the mobile world – from creating useless contraptions to creating devices that will really help people connect and interact with each other.
