TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Samsung might stop producing mobile phones this year at Tianjin Samsung Telecom Technology, its Chinese mobile phone manufacturing base in Tianjin, the South Korean newspaper said.
Samsung said on Monday that nothing had been decided on the fate of its Tianjin operation.
“The overall smartphone market is having difficulties due to slowing growth. Samsung Electronics’ Tianjin telecom enterprise aims to focus on activities that increase competitiveness and efficiency,” it said in a statement to Reuters.
In China, the world’s biggest smartphone market, Samsung’s market share is around 1 percent, while Chinese brands such as Huawei are dominant players.
