It looks like Samsung intends to significantly increase the price of its electronics products in the near future.
According to a recent report, it seems that Samsung intends to compensate for the problem caused by the global crisis by increasing the prices of its products. An event that will definitely smoke the eyes of the user who has to pay to buy these products.
As you probably know, smart gadget companies are still facing the problem of chip shortages, and although many analysts They promised that the situation would get a little better this year, but not only that, but it seems that everything is getting worse. The unveiling of many electronics, from smartphones to laptops and., Has been delayed and only a very limited number will hit the market. Now in response, the world's largest phone maker, Samsung, has announced that it wants to make fundamental changes to make up for the situation. According to a report by the prestigious Bloomberg website, Samsung is apparently examining the situation to see if it can increase product prices by up to 20%.
Samsung may be the largest phone maker in the world, but There is no reason to use all its capabilities to make Galaxy phones. This means that both the company's own handsets and products made from Korean-made parts will have a significant price increase. For example, large companies such as Apple need Samsung and its technologies to be able to market their products with acceptable quality. But the point is that with the global chip crisis, Samsung as a chip maker has suffered a lot. As a result, it has decided to offset some of these losses by raising the price of hardware components. Although this price increase is for companies that buy the required accessories from Samsung, but naturally users who want to buy the products of these companies will have to pay more.
Over the past year, Samsung has been able to manage the price situation in a way that does not fluctuate too much. But the pressure from all directions has prompted the Korean company to react. From the war between Russia and Ukraine to the global quarantine in China, supply chain problems and many more that have affected not only Samsung but many companies as well. For example, TSMC and United Microelectronics Corp. also intend to offer their products at higher prices. In fact, this increase in the price of Samsung products sooner or later, but it did not burn and should have happened.
This has two meanings: first, that smartphone companies pay whatever it takes to make high-end products, and Most of them are taken off the production line and put on the market. A capitalist company like Apple, if it knew it would cost more to build a powerful iPhone, it would certainly pay whatever it's, but it all means that the prices of high-end and premium products (Peru, Ultra, and the like) will skyrocket in a short period of time.
The second meaning is that, in general, prices will rise for all products. Although it can not be said that we will see a 20% price increase overnight, but it happens no matter how much. Because companies have to make a profit in one way, and what better way than people's pockets?
If new products hit the market, it will take a few months to see their prices rise. In fact, the situation is good at the moment and we have not reached the bad part yet. However, given the global chip crisis, which does not seem to be coming to an end anytime soon, who knows what will happen to us as ordinary users in the future?
