  4. 4. 4 | P a g e EVOLUTION OF SAMSUNG MOBILES From its inception as a small export business in Taegu, Korea, Samsung has grown to become one of the world‘s leading electronics companies, specialising in digital appliances and media, semiconductors, memory, and system integration. Today Samsung's innovative and top quality products and processes are world recognised. This timeline captures the major milestones in Samsung's history, showing how the company expanded its product lines, grew its revenue and market share, and has followed its mission of making life better for consumers around the world. Although its line of sparkling smart phones seems fresh and new, Samsung Mobile has been around since 1983. Samsung Mobile's parent company, Samsung Electronics, was founded in 1969. Once known for its televisions and other home appliances, Samsung recently eclipsed heavyweights Sony Ericsson and Motorola as one of the biggest cell phone manufacturers in the world. Samsung Mobile's first ever offering was a car phone it introduced in 1986. Samsung cell phones found its way to consumers for the first time in 1996, when they partnered with Sprint of USA on a line of sleek and compact phones. A few short years later, South America and Japan enjoyed the high-end design of Samsung Mobile phones. Quickly in 2009, Samsung Mobile's global market share stood at more than 17 percent, second only to Nokia. In the 3rd quarter of 2008, for the first time in its history, Samsung Mobile shipped more than 50 million handsets in a quarter--despite a global recession. The Samsung i7500, known as Samsung Galaxy in some countries, is the first mobile phone manufactured by Samsung that uses the open source Android operating system. It was announced on 27 April 2009. 2009 - 2012
  5. 5. 5 | P a g e 1. EVOLUTION OF SAMSUNG GALAXY. The Samsung GT-i7500, also named as Samsung Galaxy in some countries, was the first mobile phone manufactured by Samsung that used the open source Android Operating system. It was announced on 27 April 2009. It was succeeded by the Samsung i5700. The S series: The Samsung Galaxy S is an Android Smartphone that was announced by Samsung in March 2010. As of January 2011, Samsung had sold 10 million Galaxy S phones globally. The Galaxy S was named the European Smartphone of the Year at the European (EISA) Awards 2010– 2011. Samsung Galaxy S was succeeded by Samsung Galaxy S II. In October 2011, Samsung announced that it had sold 30 million Galaxy S and Galaxy S II phones globally.
  6. 6. 6 | P a g e The Samsung Galaxy 3, also known as the Samsung Galaxy Apollo (Galaxy Mini in Italy), is a Smartphone manufactured by Samsung that runs on open sour Android operating system. Announced and released by Samsung in July 2010, the Galaxy 3 succeeds the Galaxy Spica. Being a budget, mid-range Smartphone that was designed for the mass market, the Galaxy 3 had several compromises over the Galaxy S in terms of hardware. The Galaxy S 2 was released worlwide starting from May 2011, by more than 140 vendors in some 120 countries. The Galaxy Tablet: The Samsung Galaxy mobile generally evolved into TABLETS. The Samsung Galaxy Tab is an Android-based tablet computer produced by Samsung introduced on 2 September 2010 at the IFA in Berlin. The Galaxy Tab has a 7-inch (180 mm) TFT-LCD touch-screen, Wi- Fi capability, a 1.0 GHz ARM Cortex- A8 Samsung Exynos 3110 (code-named "Hummingbird") processor, the Swype input system, a 3.2 MP rear-facing camera and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera for video calls.
  7. 7. 7 | P a g e Samsung Galaxy Tab gave way to the Samsung Galaxy Note. The Samsung Galaxy Note is an Android Smartphone/tablet computer hybrid, introduced in October 2011 and noted for its 5.3-inch screen size — between that of conventional smart phones, and larger tablets — and its included stylus.
  8. 8. 8 | P a g e INITIAL POSITIONING AND SUBSEQUENT REPOSITIONING OF SAMSUNG GALAXY Positioning – Positioning is the act of designing the company‘s offerings and image to occupy a distinctive place in the minds of the target market. The idea used by Samsung Galaxy was to try something new altogether. It came up with certain features which were not available in the market in any smart-phone, at least no other player operating in the Android domain. The features were, 1. AMOLED screen technology. 2. Dual core processor. 3. Inbuilt memory capacity of 8GB. 4. Expandable memory capacity of 32GB. 5. A 5 megapixel camera. The AMOLED screen technology – AMOLED is Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode. The display technology is used in mobiles and also on televisions. Organic LED describes a specific type of thin-film technology which contains organic compounds that emits light upon electrical activation that has been deposited on the Thin Flim Transistor. This unique technology was first used by Samsung to position the Galaxy in the existing mobile domain. Dual core processor – Samsung GT-i9100 or the Galaxy SII was the first ever mobile to use Dual core processor. Inbuilt memory 8 GB – Samsung Galaxy was the first mobile on Android platform to have an inbuilt memory of 8 GB.
  9. 9. 9 | P a g e Expandable memory of 32 GB – The Samsung Galaxy mobiles has an option of expanding its memory capacity up to 32 GB. This was a major upgrade from the existing devices at that point of time. The 5 Megapixel Camera – The 5 megapixel camera was another feature which came packed with the Android OS for the first time. Repositioning:- 1. Galaxy tab launched to compete with Apple‘s iPAD. The iPad was an iconic product introduced into the domain. It attracted huge response from the market. Revenue figures topped the expectations. It catered to an entire a new segment. It was having the laptop in ones hand. Samsung did not stay away in the game. In a span of 5 months it came with its own version of the iPad called the tablet. 2. The high price segment which Galaxy existed did fairly well. Samsung was quite successful in the galaxy segment. The low price segment in Android domain was being slowly captured by local players in developing countries (e.g.Micromax in India). Samsung Galaxy Y and Galaxy Pro Duos (Dual Sim) were launched to tackle the competition in the low range segment. It used the popularity of the successful Galaxy model to enter the low cost segment. 3. Galaxy Note: This was again a unique offering from Samsung. The Note combined features of the mobile and the tablet. The size was smaller than the tablet (which came as a complaint from quite a few users), but was complete with the features.
  10. 10. 10 | P a g e Nokia 52% Samsung 23% Micromax 9% RIM Blackberry 8% LG 8% Market Share in India Nokia 27% Samsung 20% Apple 6% LG 5% ZTE 4% Others 38% Global Market Share Repositioning helped Samsung Galaxy gain a considerable amount of market share. Today it is only second to Nokia in India in terms of revenues. On global front it is only 7% short of Nokia. Nokia had been the undisputed leader in the mobile market till just a few years back. Samsung‘s aggressive marketing strategies along with an extraordinary research and development team may soon take the brand to be the leader in the industry.
  11. 11. 11 | P a g e ADVERTISING STRATEGY FOLLOWED BY SAMSUNG GALAXY In the world of tough competition innovation and up-gradation is the mantra of survival for any electronics product. Innovation backed with the correct advertising strategies directs a product to the successful plane. Brand awareness coerces the customer into buying the product. Almost all products have a number of rival products competing with former. In order to make ones position safe a brand needs slogans, logos and distinctive packaging. All these involve marketing strategies which involves careful scanning of the internal and external environment that is affecting the market. The Samsung Galaxy Y advertisement – Punch line reads „DESH SMART BAN RAHA HAI, AAP KAB BANONGE, CHANGE TO SMART‟. Samsung wanted to convey the notion if you are a Samsung Galaxy user than you are by default smarter than the rest. Different advertisements have been used at different point of times highlighting the features. There is an inbuilt program in the Samsung Galaxy mobiles that shows the image of a cat and the cat repeats whatever one says. This humorous feature is also depicted in an advertisement. Samsung tied up with popular footballer ‗DAVID BECHKAM‘ for the promotion of the Samsung galaxy note and Samsung Galaxy SIII. In India upcoming Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri (heartthrob of millions) has been used for the promotion of Samsung galaxy SIII. Samsung is the official sponsor of the Chelsea FC and it is also the official sponsor of the London 2012 Olympics and Samsung Galaxy SIII is the official wireless device the world largest sporting event.
  12. 12. 12 | P a g e SALES PROMOTION The short term incentive scheme for encouragement of trial or purchase of a product or service refers to Sales promotion. Advertisement offers a reason to buy whereas sales promotion offers an incentive to buy. Samsung mobile worked on various schemes to increase its sales and hence there was a direct effect on Galaxy. Different methods used by Samsung: 1. Samples - Samsung Mobiles invited prospective customers to try the product for free. It took out dummy models of the phones, as well as mobile shops had a trial phone which a customer could feel in his hand. 2. London 2012 Olympic Games – Samsung mobile launched a scheme, where a new customer or an existing customer can connect their mobile with Optus mobile plan and stand a chance to win the passes. 3. Samsung 50$ cash back offer-Samsung Introduced an offer where one can send a postcard and win Samsung galaxy note, even it had some participate stores where one was entitled to get a 50 $ cash back card on purchase of galaxy note. 4. Accessories – Samsung galaxy tab gave away freebies like Bluetooth headset, leather case diary, 2GB SD card to its customers.
  13. 13. 13 | P a g e SEGMENTATION Segmentation is partitioning the product with respect to its unique attributes. Initially Samsung Galaxy targeted users who wanted to use the Android operating system at a fairly high cost. But with the emerging Mobile brands in the market like Micromax and a few others, it targeted consumers with every kind of purchasing power. Samsung galaxy was segmented with respect to its price range. Low Range (Targeting low income groups) – Samsung Galaxy Y Duos, Samsung Galaxy Y Colour Plus S5360, Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos GT-B5512 , Samsung Galaxy Y CDMA 1509, Samsung Galaxy Y S5360, Samsung Galaxy Pocket, Samsung Galaxy Fit S5670, Galaxy Pop 1559, Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830, Samsung Galaxy S DUOS. The price range in this segment is Rs 6000-12000. Middle Range (for the middle income group) – Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus S7500, Samsung Galaxy SL 19003, Samsung Galaxy 2 P3100, Samsung Galaxy R 19103, Samsung Galaxy S plus 19001, Samsung Galaxy S 19000. The price range in this segment is Rs 14000 – 22000.
  14. 14. 14 | P a g e The high end Galaxies (Targeted for the high income group) – Samsung Galaxy Tab 620, Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100, Samsung Galaxy Beam, Samsung Galaxy Tab 730, Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Galaxy Tab 210.1 ,Samsung Galaxy Tab 680, Samsung Galaxy Tab 750, Samsung Galaxy S3. The price range in this segment is Rs 25000-37000.
  15. 15. 15 | P a g e ANALYSIS OF PRODUCT AND GENERIC COMPETITION Analysis of a product is necessary for up-gradation of a product and work on the flaws of the products or the product development mechanisms. SWOT analysis is a very powerful tool in analysing a product. The SWOT analysis of Samsung Galaxy is performed here. S – STRENGTHS i. Powerful specifications, great features. ii. Widely accepted Operating System iii. Devices available at different price points. iv. Excellent advertising and branding. W – WEAKNESS i. Limited market share in the ever-expanding electronic segment. ii. Lacks robustness and user friendliness of Nokia, and looses out to camera and music quality to Sony Ericsson. O – OPPORTUNITIES i. Wide range of mobile devices that can address a large market. ii. Almost accepted by masses as the prime Android OS featured device manufacturer. iii. Better brand recall in suburban markets. iv. Developed partnerships with regional organizations. T- THREATS i. Challenge to be faced by low cost mobile manufacturer in price. ii. Threat on design and build quality by high end mobile manufacturers.
  16. 16. 16 | P a g e Generic competition – Samsung Galaxy faces generic competition from the wide variety of sectors namely the Laptops, Notebooks, Net-books etc. Today technology is developing at a phenomenal pace. Laptops are being increasingly used for voice communications and video conferencing. The high speed and high storage capacity of laptops are a serious competition to the existing Samsung galaxy mobiles. The camera inbuilt in Samsung Galaxy mobiles is in between 2 - 8 Megapixels and so in this sphere it competes with the digital cameras and the camcorders as the picture quality of digital camera and camcorders will be better in consideration to Samsung Galaxy. The audio feature in Samsung Galaxy is far from the I-POD standard The IPod plays a dominant role in terms of market share. The basic work of a mobile is to communicate and for that case the generic competitor of Samsung Galaxy can be Landline phones.
  17. 17. 17 | P a g e STRATEGIES ADOPTED TO TACKLE COMPETITION OR PRIME MARKET EXPANSION Price – Galaxy has the Y series which is offered for a very low price than the completion e.g. HTC, LG, Sony, and Motorola. Due to the cost effectiveness Samsung has been able to cut down on prices, which other major players have not been able to achieve. Even the Galaxy Tab brought about turmoil in the tablet industry when it was launched and the iPad suffered a major setback in the process. Distribution – The market penetration of Galaxy is much more than any other brand. Brands like Micromax that brought about a revolution with its low price android phones could not compete because of the well established distribution network of Samsung. Innovations – Galaxy keeps innovating itself. It strives to satisfy almost all the features a consumer can ask for in a mobile device. It boasts of a series of devices comprising features like the full touch screen, normal keypad, QWERTY keypad and even a mixture of touch as well as keypads. It has kept on improvising on almost all its features per the market demand. Corporate Social Responsibility Samsung Hope for Children – It was an initiative designed to help under-privileged children through e-learning centres. These e learning centres located in different parts of the country impart computer literacy to underprivileged youth and ensure placements as well. Samsung has close tie-ups with HK RED CROSS and ‗HEAVEN OF HOPE CHARITY ASSOCIATION‘, where the company contributes an annual sum for underprivileged children. It has been winning the Caring company Award in Korea for seven consecutive years.
  18. 18. 18 | P a g e DISTRIBUTION STRATEGY FOLLOWED BY SAMSUNG GALAXY Distribution Channel is a way of selling a company's product either directly or via distributors; "possible distribution channels are wholesalers or small retailers or retail chains or direct mailers or own stores". Franchisees – Samsung Electronics franchised a number of small outlets (Mobile Stores). All the outlets which are under the franchiser should follow certain set guidelines of the franchiser‘s company. This would include converting a normal outlet into Samsung Electronics outlet. But the franchiser will help in visual merchandising and loan for deposits which are refundable. Shopping Malls – Many shopping malls have a separate mobile phones section. Samsung targeted these malls as they are the right place for promotion and sales of stylish variants of Samsung Galaxy. Mobile Phone Outlets – Samsung Galaxy mobiles are also available in the different mobile stores present in different parts of India. The store keepers are paid commission for demonstrating the various uses of the Galaxy mobiles to the customers and vouch for the quality of the products. Samsung launched its first “Samsung Brand Store” in New Delhi. The store is the first of its kind in the country. One floor is dedicated to Samsung‘s entire smart phones range of collection including tablets and accessories. . E-business – Samsung Galaxy is also available in E-business sites like Flipkart, Home Shop18. These sites often offer discounts to encourage the sales of the Samsung Galaxy mobiles.
