Samsung considering ID chips for blocking third party accessories

Samsung is currently facing this issue as well as Apple. Although both these companies are in competition with each other, but when the threat is similar from third party accessories makers, both the companies have similar solutions for it.

Samsung is considering using ID chips in its future devices to block the use of third party accessories on them. This will block any accessory that is not recognized by the device, making it unable to be used.

People buy third party accessories because of their low cost and easy availability but these accessories are not designed with quality. Once people start using them, these accessories damage their devices by burning them and in some cases, even cause explosion of the device. These third party accessories are bringing bad publicity to Samsung, just like Apple. Mostly Korean manufactured devices are affected by these knock off accessories.  While these accessories are unbearable by Samsung now, blocking them is in the best interest of Samsung and its customers.

Samsung is considering “a dedicated ID chip” to be used in its future devices that will not allow any third party accessory to be used with its Smartphone or tablet that is not licensed for safe to use, according to Korean news agency ETNews. It looks like an extreme measurement from Samsung for blocking these third party accessories makers but it looks like it is simply walking in the footsteps of Apple for protecting its products. Apple has used Lightning port with all its new iPhone and iPad to block these faulty accessories.

Samsung is a giant in the business and with the launch of its new products, knockoff makers are launching their third parties accessories in the market. Also, they are making huge profits through it. Now by blocking these knockoff accessories, Samsung can assure that all the profits from original accessories falls into its own pocket and consumer products can stay safe from them.
