Samsung announces Galaxy A series for the United States

|
,

Samsung can easily be considered one of two major players in the mobile technology industry. It’s probably not that far off to say they’re in the top two with Apple. Now that LG is exiting the space, that leaves Samsung the lion’s share of South Korea’s market anyway. But Samsung is also huge in North America and the United States, and the company just announced the Galaxy A series for the U.S.
