Samsung Fined For Misleading Advertising in Taiwan

Samsung has to pay about NT$300,000 (approx US$10,352) after the Taiwan Fair Trade Commission ruled that the company was guilty of misleading advertising.


The FTC’s fine is a small amount for Samsung, so the infraction might have been intentional by Samsung’s Marketing team after all. The issue was around the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos GT-S6102 where online and print advertisements described it as having a capable automatic focus and flash, which it lacks in reality.

Since then Samsung has removed the description, but I kinda feel bad for folks who might have picked up the Galaxy Y expecting it to have a decent camera, heh.
