Samsung, the ultimate market leader in current smart phone sector and also the chief manufacturer of Android based smartphones, has undoubtedly boosted the market share of Android operating system with a percent of 30.8, which was just 27.6 % by last year. Since the launch of first Android based device in the market by October 2008, Google’s open source Linux based OS has never seen its growth reversed.
As per the report from Gartner, Android operating system has snatched a market share of 74.4 % across world wide which is a huge hit for the search engine giant company. This market share is far ahead of any other competitors’ shares in the mobile industry.
Due to this increasing popularity of Android OS, the Korean smartphone manufacturer, Samsung has made out its strategy to launch a laptop based on Android platform. Earlier when the Google’s mobile OS made its debut onto large screen devices such as tablets, Android was not tuned for large screen form factor; however, Samsung has taken the initiative to tune the platform and the company have managed to get ahead of the competition in tablets sales. This time it seems as if the Korean smart phone manufacturer is about to take in charge for unveiling an Android 5.0 OS based laptop. Although Samsung has a plan to launch its new laptops with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie OS, due to the estimated delay in the release of this version, the company is planning to release the laptops with Android 4.X platform in order to get form factor refinements for laptops.
As per the statement given by Mingchi Kuo, a KGI Securities analyst, Samsung and other leading smart phone makers are planning to manufacture laptops based on Android platform in the near future. Earlier during a POC activity conducted by various mobile device makers, it was identified that Android 4.2 was not good enough for functioning in laptops and hence the industrial leads have decided to tune the platform from their side. We can expect the release of Android based Laptops in the market by next 3 to 4 months and the price of these laptops is currently estimated to be around $200.
This strategy of Samsung will further increase its brand image in the electronics market. We are sure that Samsung mobile team will meet its next milestone with flying colours.
