A new report claims that Samsung will soon begin a system where customers buying its smartphones from retail outlets will get apps suited to their hobbies and interests. We’re guessing Samsung will have a preset bundle of applications meant for a specific age group, with youngsters most likely going for games or social networking apps while students picking functionality based apps like spreadsheet editors and document readers.
This new system could come into place with the launch of the Galaxy S5, but there’s no confirmation of this at the moment, so take it with a pinch of salt. This promotion will also bring more people to Samsung retail outlets, with a majority of users in the world today preferring online retailers. There is no word on whether this new promotion will be limited to a specific region or the entirety of Samsung’s global retail outlets. The report also claims that the process will be fairly simple, with no background checking or snooping of any kind. So customers will basically have to tell the sales reps what they like and the smartphone will be pre-loaded with apps based on that.
Samsung’s Unpacked event kicks off in a few hours from now, so maybe we can expect to hear more about this during the course of the event.
