In terms of machine friends, this pricing may be Needs faith to dare to start. Because first of all, the domestic machine model of the Panlong 660 price can be as low as RMB 2,000, and it is obviously a little late for Samsung to launch this machine. It was late for the whole year and it was believed that there would be more attention in the last year. However, since Samsung dared to play "brilliant extravagance", it shows that it is facing the "luxury" population with light demand.
In any case, Samsung has been losing ground in the domestic market in recent years, and it has been difficult to squeeze into the top five of national shipments. The most important reason is that domestic mobile phones have rapidly emerged, and the prices are more expected by the United States, and they are also more selective. There are more ways to buy cheaper and more satisfying mobile phones. In the end, what's your opinion on this new Samsung Galaxy S light luxury version? Do you think it will be a weapon to open the Chinese market? Or is that sentence “interrupted”?
