Background and Identification
In 1977, Samsung Electronics launched its Telecommunication Network. Samsung released its first built-in car phone, the SC-100, in 1986, but was considered a failure because of its poor quality. Samsung’s Wireless Development Team purchased ten Motorola mobile phones for benchmarking purposes, and Samsung Electronics produced its first analog mobile phone, the SH100, in 1988. Since then, Samsung phones have included handphones, mono and color flip phones, and AMOLED smartphones.
Samsung released its first CDMA (code-division multiple access) digital mobile phone in March 1996, called the SCH-100. By developing light, slim phones that enabled clear voice communication, Samsung became a leader in the Personal Communications Service (PCS) market. Samsung marketed their mobile phones towards young generations, who has emerged as a growing customer base. By 1999, Samsung held more than 50-percent of the worldwide CDMA mobile phone market.
Samsung’s first AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode) mobile phone was released in 2009 as the first Samsung phone to feature a touch screen display. The Galaxy S phone was introduced in 2010 as the first in a very long line of Galaxy mobile phones. The first Galaxy S phone included mobile streaming, video editing, imaging, and YouTube capabilities. Samsung smartphones use the Android operating system produced by Google.
Identifying your Samsung phone is as simple as removing the back cover and reading the label underneath the battery, or looking near the bottom of the back case.
