Samsung’s going to dominate at the high-end of the smartphone market if for no other reason than it can. The company’s intention to continue to invest while others pull back may prove to be have been a very wise move. The top end of the smartphone market will probably take less of a hit than other tiers simply because if you are going to splurge on something during a downturn it might as well be something really cool and new. Samsung will sew up those opportunities on the Android side which should also trickle down into other design wins.
