Several connected enterprises are consolidated under the Samsung brand; it is the largest chaebol in South Korea, with more than a hundred subsidiaries and affiliates (business conglomerate). According to Brand Finance, by 2020, Samsung will have the ninth most valuable global brand value in the world. When Lee Byung-Chul founded Samsung in 1938, the company's primary focus was on trading. However, within three decades, the organization had grown into various sectors, including food production, textiles, insurance, securities brokerage firms, and retail stores. Having first established itself in the electronics industry in the late 1960s, Samsung began expanding into the construction and shipbuilding sectors in the mid-1970s, laying the groundwork for its subsequent global development. With the passing of Lee Kyung-hee in 1987, Samsung was separated into five business groups: The Samsung Group, the Shinsegae Corporation, The CJ Corporation and The Hansol Corporation, The Joongang Corporation, and several other companies.

Several significant Samsung industrial subsidiaries include Samsung Electronics (the world's largest information technology company, consumer electronics manufacturer, and chipmaker, according to 2017 revenues), Samsung Heavy Industries (the world's second-largest shipbuilder, according to 2010 revenues), and Samsung Engineering and Samsung C&T Corporation (the world's 13th and 36th largest construction companies, according to 2010 revenues), among others.

Developed, manufactured, and distributed by Samsung Electronics, the Galaxy series of computer systems and mobile computing devices is a subset of the company's broad product range.

The product line includes high-end smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S series, tablets such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab series, tablets and phablets with the added functionality of a stylus such as the Samsung Galaxy Note series, the foldable Samsung Galaxy Z series, and smartwatches such as the first version of the Samsung Galaxy Gear, with later versions dropping the Galaxy branding until the release of the Samsung Galaxy Watch in 2018.

For its part, the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S is the first Galaxy-branded Windows 10 device to be presented at this year's International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). This is the first time a Galaxy-branded wristwatch has been released since subsequent iterations of the Gear smartwatch were released between 2014 and 2017.
