Where can we find more ads provided by Samsung?
In 2020, Samsung started displaying banner ads in its applications. Advertisements started appearing after updates to One UI 2.5. From now on, they will disappear from most pre-installed applications on company phones. We will not find them on Samsung Weather or Samsung Health. Instead, Samsung Pay will still have an offer section.
The South Korean manufacturer has decided to drop these ads by the end of 2021. Most likely, the upgrade to One UI 4.0 based on Android 12 will lead to the complete disappearance of this type of monetization, strongly contested by users.
Now, smartphone users can consider themselves lucky, after getting rid of at least some ads that always assaulted them. Unfortunately, the smart TV owners of the technology manufacturer are not so lucky. They will still have to accept various banners through the software interface. Maybe in time the company will think about them and find other sources of income.
