SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adeia Inc. (Nasdaq: ADEA), the company whose patented innovations shape the way the world explores and experiences entertainment, today announced that Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a global leader in the electronics industry, entered into a long-term agreement at the end of the third quarter, renewing its license to Adeia's media intellectual property (IP) portfolio for its mobile devices and related offerings.

“Samsung’s leadership in the Android mobile device market has been achieved by an unwavering commitment to meeting the dynamic needs of its customers. Consumers are looking for devices to stay connected to friends, family and colleagues and also as a gateway to digital news and entertainment,” said Paul E. Davis, chief executive officer of Adeia.

According to Statista, Samsung shipped 258 million smartphones worldwide in 2022, accounting for over a fifth of smartphone shipments worldwide. The company’s feature-rich devices have transformed access to communication and digital entertainment services.

Mobile devices have also become a driving force behind the global video gaming market, with smartphone games accounting for 45 percent of video gaming revenue worldwide, also according to Statista.

“As revenue-generating opportunities on mobile devices continue to expand, so will the complexity associated with finding and accessing the content consumers desire. Intuitive and easy-to-use navigation enabled by Adeia’s media IP portfolio allows subscribers to leverage voice search and intelligent content recommendations to streamline the discovery process. This makes it possible for consumers to spend less time searching and more time enjoying the content they love.
