In a rather strange move, a new report from The Korea Herald suggest that Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will hit the Japanese market without the company’s logo on the handset.
Unlike other markets, the handsets will hit the Japanese market in Japan on April 23rd and will not carry the Samsung logo. Instead, the handsets will be marketed with the carriers logo — Docomo and AU will sell the handsets and it will be called Docomo Galaxy and au Galaxy.
The news was also confirmed by the company’s representative in Seoul to the publication and said, “We think the Galaxy brand has been well established in Japan.”
It’s not just the smartphones, the accessories which will come with the device — the wireless charger — will also come with Galaxy branding.
The company is trying to make a strong foothold in the countries, and as per a report from Strategy Analytics, the Korean company had a minor 5.6 percent market share in the region with Apple leading in terms of sales in the last year with over 40 percent share.
Both handsets are already available in several global markets, and is apparently performing way better than its predecessor.
