It seems that everybody wants to get into the Infographic business these days as less and less people have the time to read a few words, so now they can look at the pictures – after all, a “picture is worth a thousand words,” right. Samsung, never one to be left out of the advertising fads, has actually done two Infographics, one covers “What Samsung Mobile Achieved in 2013,” and the other is on Samsung’s “History of Wearable Devices.”
With less than 50 days left in 2014, Samsung wanted to reflect back on this year’s accomplishments, which include the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, and the Galaxy Gear, which is the star of the “History of Wearable Devices,” but it is also a part of Samsung’s Mobile division, so they included here as well.
This first section emphasizes that Samsung went from 17th place in 2011 to 8th Best Global Brand in 2013. Before February, they hit the 100 million sales mark for their Galaxy S Series and were even voted Best Smartphone for the Galaxy S3 at the GSMA Awards in 2013. In April, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S4 and sold 10 million in the first month continued to sell over 40 million of them during the year – enough to span from London to New York!
This second Infographic shows that PC Magazine labeled the Galaxy S4 as “The Best Phone on the Planet,” and shortly after that Samsung revealed their new Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear, and promptly sold 5 million Note 3’s in the first month! Todd Pendleton, CMO, and Younghee Lee, head of Samsung Mobile were both honored with special awards. Samsung has over 6 million followers on Twitter making them the most followed brand on Twitter.
Samsung’s wearable devices – remember the old Dick Tracy two-way wristband? Well, Samsung does, and they think that Dick would like the Super AMOLED touch screen that is included on their latest on Smartwatches, the Galaxy Gear. Samsung also points out that that they have been making a wearable wrist device since 1999 when their SPH-WP10 was touted as the “World’s First Commercialized Watch Phone.” Samsung also came out with a “watch” of some sort in 2000, 2003, and 2009, before their Galaxy Gear in 2013 – calling it a “SMART Companion,” which means you need a compatible smartphone to get the most out of it.
The rest on this Infographic follows a young man throughout his day as he rides his bike and encounters situations that he can use his Samsung Galaxy Gear (and his Galaxy Note 3 in his backpack), pointing out the many ways it makes sense to have one to help you throughout your day.
So there is the year of 2013 and the many accomplishments of Samsung and their products. Let us know in the comments or on Google+ if you contributed to Samsung’s success in 2013 by purchasing a Galaxy S3, S4, Note 3, or Galaxy Gear.
