Playing to all demands, and giving us practically tailor made devices is a goal well struck. However, the real profit making in terms of tons of returns could be once Samsung concentrates more on cutting edge, unprecedented breakthrough technology and good prices. We want more fancy gadgets, and futuristic technology, like foldable screens, thinner displays, power efficient batteries and gadgets that can be flexed and bent to the users liking. Samsung has the requisite know-how, corporate objective and resources to achieve this, in only a matter of time.
