Samsung's B2B Push

With the launch of three new Galaxy S10 models—and a fourth, 5G-enabled model on the way—Samsung is solidifying its position as the most channel-friendly smartphone vendor out there, said Samsung mobile channel chief Mike Coleman.

Samsung is not just going after consumers anymore when it designs new phones, Coleman said, and the company is also working aggressively to build out its channel capabilities further in 2019 following "tremendous traction" with partners last year. "We believe that this is the new frontier for many partners that would like to extend or expand their business, both on the security side and on the mobility side," Coleman said.
