Samsung new opportunities as pandemic ignites demand for home appliances

2nd September 2020
"consumers have been willing to splurge on products that make their homes cleaner."

From sanitizing closets to customizable fridges, the coronavirus pandemic has fanned demand for home appliances - so much so that Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (005930.KS) is adding warehouses and bringing popular products to more markets.

In particular, consumers have been willing to splurge on products that make their homes cleaner.

In Brazil and other emerging economies, households which once relied on maids are now investing in dishwashers and robot vacuum cleaners, while Samsung says its overseas sales of air purifiers jumped more than five times in January-July compared to the same period last year.

Samsung’s AirDresser, a closet that steam cleans clothes and kills bacteria, has seen a spike in sales with British furniture firm Lux Group ordering 1,000 earlier this year. Big fridges have also climbed in popularity as people cooking more often at home seek more freezer space.

“Sales are doing well in all but a few countries,” Lee Jae-Seung, executive vice president of Samsung Electronics’ digital appliance business, told Reuters in an interview.

He said factories for Samsung’s appliances business in the United States, Mexico, Poland, India and other countries were running at full capacity and the company was seeking more warehouse space in the United States, South Korea and Europe.

“There was a lot of pent-up demand in the U.S and elsewhere,” Lee said. He added that many consumers seemed willing to spend money they might have otherwise used on trips and outdoor activities to upgrade their household interiors.

In its home market, Samsung’s “Bespokerefrigerators drove its fridge sales up 30% in the first half from the same period a year ago. The fridges, which come in a wide range of compartment sizes, panel types and colors that can be mixed and matched, were launched in China and Russia this year and will be sold in northern Europe from October.

Samsung does not disclose home appliance earnings, but according to UBS, it's home appliance business made an operating profit of 337 billion won ($284.48 million) in the April-June quarter, up about 30% from a year earlier according to Seoul-based KTB Securities.

Samsung's new foldable phone is its biggest

2nd September 2020
"demand for high-end smartphones"

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd’s latest foldable smartphone is also its largest, offering users a tablet-size screen 12% bigger than its first Galaxy Fold.

Unveiled on Tuesday, the Galaxy Z Fold2’s screen measures 7.6 inches (19.3 cm) when unfolded. The 5G compatible phone will also be Samsung’s most expensive foldable, priced at $1,999 in the United States compared to $1,980 for the Galaxy Fold launched last year.

The new model, however, is facing a tough market with economic uncertainties created by the coronavirus pandemic cooling demand for high-end smartphones.

Despite the launch of its premium Galaxy S20 lineup in March, Samsung has fared particularly badly. Its second-quarter smartphone sales plummeted 30% and South Korean tech giant ceded its position as the world’s biggest smartphone seller to Chinese rival Huawei Technologies Co Ltd [HWT.UL], according to research firm Canalys.

Offered in two colours - mystic black and mystic bronze - the Galaxy Z Fold2 will go on sale on Sept. 18 in about 40 countries.

Amazon’s new Blink cameras can record for up to 4 years on single set batteries

3rd September 2020
"A new extra stamina battery expansion pack."

Blink, that other smart home camera company that Amazon scooped up, today announced a pair of new cameras that move its business deeper into a subscription model. And they can also last for a long time — up to four years of “normal use” — on a single set of batteries if that’s what you need.

The new Blink Outdoor ($99.99) and Indoor ($79.99) cameras include a free trial to Blink’s cloud storage plan that’s good through the end of this year. But after that, you’ll have to pay $3 monthly to keep the cloud storage going; an unlimited-cameras plan is slightly more expensive at $10 per month. Blink is still giving customers the option of saving their recordings locally with the included Sync Module 2 and any USB flash drive they might have on hand.

Both cameras check off most of the features you’d want out of a basic home camera: you get 1080p video, night vision, motion detection, and two-way audio in “sleek new hardware design.

By default, the Blink Outdoor and Indoor can keep going for up to two years of recording on a pair of AA lithium batteries. But later this year, Blink says it’ll release a battery expansion back that ups the number of AAs to four, thus doubling that total stamina to up to four years “with normal use.” Blink says it can achieve this efficiency because of its “proprietary chip technology.” You can see how this would be convenient if you want to stick a camera in a high-traffic area or a hard-to-reach spot where frequent battery swaps would prove annoying. The expansion pack costs another $30, so the added expense might not be worth it for some.

And of course, both new Blink cams are Alexa compatible.

Titanium version of the Samsung Galaxy Watch3 unveiled in Germany

3rd September 2020
"Premium version appears is nowhere to be seen outside of Germany for now"

Samsung quietly unveiled a more premium version of the Galaxy Watch3 – one that uses titanium for the body instead of the usual stainless steel. Samsung Germany posted the press release, saying that the watch will be available online starting on September 18.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch3 Titan will only come in 45 mm size (there’s no mention of a 41mm option) and will be painted in Mystic Black exclusively. The bracelet is made out of stainless steel, by the way, only the watch body is titanium.

This premium version appears is nowhere to be seen outside of Germany for now so we don’t know which other markets will get it (the rest of the EU, presumably). You can see it in the online store.

Now, for the price - €633. That’s quite a premium over the €447 that the regular 45mm watch costs (note: the Titan model is Wi-Fi only, there’s no LTE option). You can always get a Galaxy Fit2 smart band for €47 (available October 2).
