Samsung 2019 schedule: hold off on that Galaxy Note 9

Samsung 2019 schedule: hold off on that Galaxy Note 9

But it's interesting to hear about the kind of changes the tenth-anniversary Galaxy S flagship could bring on the imaging front, and we can expect to see more rumors about the same surfacing online in the months to come. While there's still a chance they may be wrong, SamMobile points out that Olixar's Note 8 renders were accurate, plus given how close we are to launch there's no reason for the company to use unofficial renders that weren't approved by Samsung itself.

While the smartphone business struggles, Samsung's profits are being driven by strong global sales of DRAM and NAND chips which account for about a third of its revenue. That compares with the 15.3 trillion-won average of analysts' estimates compiled by Bloomberg. Sales of organic light-emitting diode screens to Apple Inc. have also been weaker than expected, while the growth of semiconductor prices has been slowing.

The company also said sales fell by 5 percent from a year ago, to 58 trillion won.

Samsung warned in April that second-quarter profits in its mobile business should decline sequentially.

Texas mother arrested for allegedly selling her kids
Authorities are accusing a Texas mother with a drug debt of selling her 7-year-old son and trying to sell her two young daughters. Garza was also in the process of selling two other children - a 2-year-old girl and a 3-year-old girl - as well, officials said.

"While chip sales keep rising, smartphones aren't looking good", said Jung Sang-jin, a fund manager at Korea Investment Management. The guidance, released Wednesday ahead of full earnings later this month, didn't provide specific divisional results.

Competition from cheaper Chinese brands like Xiaomi Corp (1810.HK) and Huawei have already seen Samsung lose market share in China and India, the world's top smartphone markets.

There are also fears that a Chinese price-fixing probe into chipmakers including Samsung could limit the upside for DRAM prices, as China is the largest importer of memory products.
