Verizon begins Wi-Fi calling rollout with Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge

Samsung Might Make a Massive Change to the Galaxy S7.

According to analyst Pan Jiutang (), Samsung plans to reduce the price of its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S7, by about 10% relative to the launch price of its Galaxy S6. But iPhone users, as well as non-Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge customers will have to wait until “early next year” for Wi-Fi calling, according to Verizon’s blog post announcing the feature. A more affordable phone could entice some buyers to select Samsung’s handset over its rivals, but it highlights the issues facing the Korean tech giant. In order to activate Wi-Fi calling for audio and video calls on Android, Verizon subscribers will need to turn on Advanced Calling from the Settings menu and be sure to install the latest software update.

The introduction of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus — the first iPhones with larger displays — likely played a factor, but the bigger contributor may have been the existence of increasingly competent low-cost Android handsets. These low-cost Android vendors have had little effect on more established economies, however, there are signs of growing price competition even in the U.S. smartphone market. In October, Samsung saw its total operating profit jump in the third quarter, as its mobile profits rose 37% on an annual basis, but Samsung’s chip business was its most successful unit. Samsung’s flagship Galaxies generally offer the best hardware available in any smartphone — with enormous batteries, excellent cameras, and top-notch displays.

If Samsung continues to offer leading hardware at more affordable prices, it could help reinvigorate demand for its handsets, but margins could suffer.
