News In Sync With Life The Internet of Things drives Samsung’s dynamic product line-up at IFA in 2015 Throughout an actionpacked press conference at the Messe Berlin CityCube, Samsung demonstrated how it is taking the Internet of Things (IoT) from vision to reality. Dr W.P. Hong, Chief Marketing Officer for Samsung Electronics, prefaced a roll-out of IoT devices and partnerships by noting that the company had sold 530 million products in Europe in the last five years, and remains the number one mobile phone and TV brand on the Continent. But the company was “looking ahead at new horizons for growth”, he said, referring to the huge potential for developing interconnected devices within the Internet of Things, which is estimated to be worth a trillion euro by 2020. “We are certain that IoT will revolutionise the world of consumer electronics,” said Dr Hong, who promised that by 2020 all Samsung devices will be “completely in sync with life”. Personalised well-being via the Samsung SleepSense device was the other big announcement, part of a digital health ecosystem that rolled out alongside digital mobility innovations like the Car Mode for Galaxy app that adds value to the driving experience in partnership with Volkswagen.
