Samsung revealed that they will no longer be selling consumer cameras in the UK this week.
Confirming the new to Pocket Lint, the company revealed that they have decided that they will no longer sell digital cameras or camcorders in the UK, however they didn’t reveal the date that this will be happening.
Here’s a statement that a Samsung spokesperson that they gave to Pocket-Lint:
“We quickly adapt to market needs and demands. In the UK, we have seen a gradual and sustained decline in demand for standalone digital cameras and camcorders and related accessories. For this reason, we have taken the decision to phase out the sales and marketing of these products. This is a local decision, based on local market conditions.”
This may seem like a quick decision from Samsung, since they have not revealed anything leading up to this point, however it is likely that this is something that Samsung has been thinking about for some time, looking to reduce their costs on devices which they find to be less profitable for them in certain markets.
It will be interesting to see if Samsung expands these cuts any further in the future.
