Samsung has opened an Experience store in Leh, India, making itself to be the world’s first exclusive brand retail store at the highest altitude: 3600 meters high. This expansion makes Samsung the first brand to offer a direct distribution and service outlet in the Leh-Ladakh region.
This new Experience store will offer demonstrations, consultation, and support to customers in the area, Samsung India says. This will help the company give consumers direct access to its premium products, furthering its presence in India.
“Samsung will be wherever our consumers are. Our brand and service store in Leh, the highest altitude exclusive brand store over 3,600 meters high, will provide a unique and differentiated retail experience to our consumers. This store will not only display our new innovative products, it will also be a one stop shop for consumers to experience advanced features and solutions offered in these Samsung Smart devices,” says Mohandeep Singh, Vice President of Samsung’s Mobile Division Sales.
The Samsung Experience Store and Service center will allow customers in the region to see devices like the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and no doubt the rumored Galaxy S7 when it launches in a few months time.
“Samsung is the first brand to set foot in the region with an exclusive showroom and we are committed to strengthening our reach further,” Singh said. Samsung’s commitment to have a presence wherever consumers are rings true in how hard the company tries to have a device in every corner of the world.

Apple today announced that its board of directors has authorized an increase of more than 50 percent to the company’s program to return capital to shareholders. Under the expanded program, Apple plans to utilize a cumulative total of $ 200 billion of cash by the end of March 2017. As part of the revised program, the board has increased its share repurchase authorization to $ 140 billion from the $ 90 billion level announced last year. In addition, the company expects to continue to net-share-settle vesting restricted stock units. The board has also approved an increase of 11 percent to the company’s quarterly dividend, and has declared a dividend of $ 0.52 per share, payable on May 14, 2015, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on May 11. “We believe Apple has a bright future ahead, and the unprecedented size of our capital return program reflects that strong confidence,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “While most of our program will focus on buying back shares, we know that the dividend is very important to many of our investors, so we’re raising it for the third time in less than three years.”
