Samsung aims to reach more Kazakh customers with launch of Newsroom in Kazakh language
Today, Samsung Electronics launched Newsroom Kazakhstan in the Kazakh language, intending to reach more Kazakh customers. It means, the Galaxy fans who speak Kazakh will now be able to access the most up-to-date information on Samsung’s new devices, solutions, and trends in their native language.
This all-new Samsung Newsroom Kazakhstan will keep users informed about exciting events, product launches, B2B conferences, unique events, and giveaways featuring valuable prizes. Additionally, the local residents will have the opportunity to participate in these events firsthand and create memorable experiences.
Head of Corporate Communications at Samsung Electronics Central Eurasia said,
- “Sharing Samsung news in Kazakh is a great way for us to connect and communicate with our users in Kazakhstan and abroad who are passionate about Samsung,” “We will continue to expand our Kazakh content to ensure that everyone can access valuable information.”
Accordingly, the Samsung Newsroom Kazakhstan is the company’s 46th newsroom to date, following the Global Newsroom, as well as local editions in the United States, Korea, Vietnam, Brazil, India, Germany, Russia, Mexico, the U.K., Argentina, Malaysia, Italy, South Africa, the Netherlands, Spain, Belgium and Taiwan and more.
A game changer: Samsung to mass produce 2nm BSPDN semiconductor in 2026
The semiconductor market is currently in motion, so several manufacturers including Intel, Samsung, TSMC, and more are competing to develop cutting-edge technologies to lead the tech world. On the other side, Samsung plans to mass produce a BSPDN semiconductor based on a 2nm process in 2026.
As per the information, Samsung gearing up to mass-produce a game-changer Backside Power Supply (BSPDN) technology with a 2nm process starting next year. The tech maker has also reduced the chip area by 10% and 19% and succeeded in improving chip performance and frequency efficiency to a single-digit level.
Previously, it was reported that Samsung Electronics would introduce rear power supply technology starting from the 1.7-nano process. But now the South Korean tech giant is expected to revise its roadmap and introduce the technology as early as next year when mass production of the 2-nano process begins.
To be mentioned, the rear power supply technology being developed by Samsung has achieved indicators that exceed the target in the initial stage. As Samsung delivered results exceeding target indicators from the beginning of development, it is highly likely that the commercialization date, originally scheduled for around 2027, will be brought forward.
Furthermore, the backside power supply is a new semiconductor process that has yet to be commercialized. Therefore, to supply power to semiconductors, power supply lines have been placed on the top of the wafer where the circuit is drawn for convenience in the process.
