Samsung's Galaxy S9 is its least popular phone since the Galaxy S3

Samsung Galaxy X

Compared to the 14.07 trillion won profit from last year's second quarter, Samsung's performance improved, but it failed to reach the market's estimate of $15.2 trillion won, as pointed out by Yonhap.

The electronics maker is reporting estimated profit of 14.8 trillion Korean won (USD$13.2BN) on revenue of 58 trillion Korean won (USD$51.9BN) for the quarter.

"It is going to be tough".

The smartphone market has been slowing down in recent quarters. Not only is it the most expensive and the least attractive from a technology position, Apple is much more dependant on smartphones than Samsung.

IBTimes previously reported that Samsung is preparing to launch its Galaxy X foldable phone at CES 2019 in January and its Galaxy S10 flagship handset at MWC 2019 in February.

The local residents of the area reported the matter to police and investigation is underway. A neighbour in the Burari district found the victims early on Sunday, police said.

Samsung has since acknowledged its plan to expand its smartphone portfolio. It will disclose detailed results in late July. As for the pricing, the foldable device could cost $1,850 (approximately Rs 12,6752).

"It's a bit disappointing", Ko Gyeong-beom at Yuanta Securities Korea told AFP, noting the company had posted expectation-beating operating profits for several quarters.

Investors are growing increasingly concerned however about the prospect of an all-out trade war between China and the United States, and how this could impact major exporters like South Korea's tech champions.

The leaker also reports that the Gear S4 will be able to track blood pressure, sport a 470mAh battery, a new UX interaction and have a PLP package. Thanks to the Huawei P20 Pro, the benefits that can be achieved by having three cameras on a smartphone have been made clear (though Huawei also uses AI algorithms to further improve photos), and Samsung is said to be working on a competing setup for the Galaxy S10 camera.
