Huawei is just one of Samsung’s worries right now, as other Chinese smartphone vendors have proven to be fierce competitors for Galaxy phones — the list includes Oppo, Xiaomi and OnePlus, to name just a few. Then there’s Apple, which is Samsung’s long-time rival/business partner, with the iPhone remaining the main adversary for Galaxy S and Note flagships.

Roh will also oversee Samsung’s newest type of smartphone, the foldable. Samsung fumbled the Galaxy Fold launch under Koh last year, but it’s expected to unveil a more exciting Galaxy Z Flip foldable next month.

Roh will probably oversee the upcoming Unpacked event, scheduled for February 11th in San Francisco, where Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S20 and Z Flip. Roh will probably replace Koh on stage to introduce the new devices, although that’s just speculation.

Samsung might be looking to take advantage of the US’s ban on Huawei gear, including 5G networking components, to become a major player in networking in the coming years.
