1. Samsung Display, Ferrari Sign MOU in South Korea
At its campus in Asan, Korea, Samsung Display and Ferrari signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on Tuesday to work together to create a display solution that would be used in Ferrari’s upcoming vehicles.
JS Choi, President and CEO of Samsung Display, and Benedetto Vigna, CEO of Ferrari, confirmed the partnership in a joint statement.
According to the statement, the partnership is set to develop the latest display solution to be implemented on Ferrari’s next-generation cars.
Samsung Display Co., Ltd. bills itself as an industry leader in providing cutting-edge display solutions around the world.

2. Southern Korean authorities fine Google $32m
South Korea’s authorities have fined Google $31.88 million for blocking the release of mobile video games on a competitor’s platform.
The Korea Fair Trade Commission (KFTC) stated on Tuesday that Google, by requiring video game developers to exclusively release their titles on Google Play in exchange for providing in-app exposure between June 2016 and April 2018, increased its market dominance and harmed the revenue and platform value of the local app market One Store.
A Google spokesperson while also confirming the fine said in a statement that the tech giant will review the decision of the Korean authorities.
“Google makes substantial investments in the success of developers, and we respectfully disagree with the KFTC’s conclusions,” the spokesperson said.
The KFTC claimed the move against the U.S. technology giant is part of efforts by the government to ensure fair markets.
