At the same time, Partron is also trying to enrich its product portfolio, reduce its dependence on smartphone cameras, and intends to enter the automotive field. The South Korean component maker remains a major supplier of Galaxy A-series and Galaxy M-series smartphones, which far outnumber foldable smartphones and account for just 5% of Samsung’s total smartphone shipments.
