There are many electronics companies in the world, and each one has its own strengths and weaknesses. Some companies are known for their televisions, while others are known for their smartphones. In this blog post, we will take a look at some of the biggest names in the electronics industry and see what kinds of products they are best known for making.
As a leading Japanese electronics manufacturer, Mitsubishi Electric has made a name for itself as one of the industry leaders in large screen displays. The company’s Video Wall Displays feature automated calibration and industry-leading quality and reliability. While their Diamond Vision Screens have been installed around the world ever since the first installation at Dodger Stadium in 1980.
Mitsubishi Electric’s large screen displays are known for their high quality and innovative features, and the company has won numerous awards for its screens over the years.
Notable examples include:
- World’s Largest HDTV (48.64m x 21.76m) – installed for the Dallas Cowboys in 2009
- World’s Largest TV (11.2m x 66.4m) – installed at the Tokyo Racecourse in 2006
- World’s Tallest Screen (51.4m x 4m) – installed for Reuters in Time Square New York.
As one of the biggest electronics companies in the world, Samsung is known for making a wide variety of products, including televisions, camcorders, and tablets. But there is one Samsung product in particular (or should we say, a line of products) that sticks out above all the rest.
After releasing the first iteration of the Samsung Galaxy smartphone back in 2009, the Galaxy line of devices have taken the world by storm, now clocking in as some of the best devices on the electronics market.
Among Samsung’s most popular Galaxy products are:
- Samsung Note 5
- Samsung Galaxy S6
- Samsung Galaxy S3
- Samsung Galaxy Note 2
- Samsung Galaxy Alpha
Apple is one of the most well-known and successful electronics companies in the world. While they are best known for producing a range of stylish smart products, from iPads and Macs to iPods, the Apple device that has since taken to the spotlight of the global stage has been the Apple iPhone.
The iPhone was first released in 2007, and while other smartphones were on the market at the time, Apple’s device was a cut above the rest with its intuitive touch screen interface and powerful hardware. Since 2008, the iPhone has been Apple’s main source of revenue and its most popular product, selling almost 50 million units in the last quarter of 2018.
Of course this list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Sony and their globally known video game console, PlayStation. The very first PlayStation console was released in 1994, and has since gone through 5 iterations. Sony’s PlayStation 2 has continued to stand as the reigning champion, being the best selling home console in history with over 155 million units sold as of 2012. Sony’s series 3, 4 and 5 PlayStation gaming hardware as well brought the company 5 billion dollars worth of revenue in 2020.
