Hello Samsung Mobile,
I'm sure this has been requested more than a few times over the years.
There are many retro devices in people's homes all over the world that are not 'smart being that these older devices came to market before built in WiFi became desired by manufacturers. Examples include older TVs, fans, air conditioners, portable heaters.
It's worth a shot in the dark, but it would be nice if your phone design team could include an IR blaster (infa-red) just for the top-end Ultra line of Galaxy smartphones.
Furthermore, even for modern smart TV's with built in WiFi and smart control, the infa-red is still the faster method of changing the TV channel or other remote control. That's because Infa-red is directly instantaneous whereas regular smart control is totally dependant on WiFi connectivity.
Or perhaps the unreleased Samsung Galaxy Home Mini speaker with 4x built in IR blaster would be a better bet. Such a smart speaker would then mean that a user could control IR (infa-red) devices even when not at home.
