Samsung has been dominating the mobile and smartphone markets, alongside Apple, for over a decade now. Every year, the company relies on its newest innovations to keep consumers on their toes and investors happy. From traditional phablet-styled form factors to newer foldable smartphones, Samsung has always been about implementing industry benchmarks that other smartphone companies follow suit.
Samsung’s strong presence in the South American region, particularly Brazil, has also allowed them to gain a strong foothold in the continent’s smartphone market. Reports suggest that Samsung accounts for more than 40 per cent smartphone market share in Brazil, comfortably beating Apple, which is in second place with a modest 20 per cent market share.
As a result, there is no denying that Samsung Brazil continues to be a force for the country’s economy, especially when the company employs more than 10,000 individuals for various business operations. And in recent years, Samsung has also been responsible for launching most of its latest and most popular smartphones in the Brazilian market, including the Samsung Galaxy S23, Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy A54, Samsung Galaxy A34, Samsung Fold 4, and Samsung Flip 4.
With that being said, if you are facing any glaring issue with your Samsung smartphone that is affecting how you perform your everyday work, then be sure to follow our step-by-step guide to book a service appointment at one of the multiple service centres established by Samsung Brazil.
