Crisis in sight? Samsung reduces smartphone production to 2022
The South Korean manufacturer has stipulated a cut of 30 million devices, including the flagship Galaxy S22
After facing the shortage of electronic components and the impacts of the war in Ukraine, the Samsung stipulated a cut of 30 million smartphones in the production lines of 2022, reaching even the flagship of the brand, the Samsung Galaxy S22.
According to the website SamMobile, the decision stems from the lack of interest of consumers in exchanging current smartphones for new ones with high prices due to world inflation.
The company had planned to produce 300 million smartphones in 2022, because it still hasn’t reached that goal after 2017, but has opted for manufacturing retraction.
But Samsung isn’t the only one waiting for a crisis. Apple also works with the stagnation in sales and wants to reduce the number of phones, as happened last year.
According to SamMobile, the company is cutting iPhone SE production by 20%.
