Damn.... Samsung gets access to the following Harman Connecter Car Partners: Audi, Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, Tesla, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Volkswagen, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Chrysler, Jeep, Harley Davidson, Jaguar, Landrover, Mini, Seat, Skoda and Toyota.

Combined with their gigantic technological power (OLED screen, processors, SSD, memory tech, 5G) gigantic pile of cash, their own OS Tizen, IOT, Samsung Pay en their sophisticated Cloud solution (Joyent) and lat but not least Bixby, Samung is heading for the absolute number 1 spot of the most powerfull companies in the World.

In March 2015, Harman acquired the automotive division of Bang & Olufsen for 145 million euros ($156 million) for the unit as well as technology license fees.The purchase didn’t include Bang & Olufsen’s consumer-electronics business
