Welcome to Samsung Village! On this blog we tell stories about what’s happening across Samsung’s many diverse companies. Here you can expect to see news and human interest stories, viewpoints on trends and important issues, as well as occasional clarifications to the public record regarding Samsung. Our goal is to be a resource for people who are interested in learning more about us.
Samsung Village is a work in progress that will evolve over time and we hope to hear from you along the way.
