Samsung: Temporary mistrust

The current economic and strategic rapprochement between the Chinese and South Korean leaders[1] makes us fear American reprisals. One can imagine that it will be very tempting for the United States of Apple to threaten South Korea with sanctions against Samsung if ever the country’s new position leads the US to consider that South Korea is entering the enemy camp. That said, if our anticipations are correct in this issue, many things will change in the coming weeks/months on the US-China axis that will spread this kind of risk. But as things stand now, be wary of Samsung all the same.
