Samsung expected to see smallest profits yet


On the other hand, its consolidated operating profit was at 14.8 trillion or US$13.2 billion.

German site AllAboutSamsung reports that the company is expected to launch a triple camera setup on the most premium Samsung Galaxy S10 (Beyond 2).

Samsung reports that, during Q2 2018, the company saw a Consolidated Operating Profit of about 14.8 trillion won, with Consolidated Sales of about 58 trillion won.

Smartwatches have never lit up the market in terms of sales, but if anyone not named Apple can carve out respectable a sales share, it's Samsung.

Either way, we're months away from anything happening on a Galaxy S10 front, so these plans may get scrapped and we may ultimately see just two models early next year. Those reports had said that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S10 at CES 2019 and follow that with the launch of the Galaxy X at Mobile World Congress in February. The device will enter mass production later this year ahead of its unveiling in the first month of 2019. The approach seems to resemble that of a flip phone whether the display unfolds vertically from the lower half bearing the keyboard. The site suggests Samsung might use a horizontal position for the camera module, as it's rumored to do with the Galaxy Note 9.

"We are preparing for foldable phones very intensely. They will provide a good experience to consumers if we make them well", Koh said at the time. Currently, a couple of smartphone manufacturers, including Samsung, Huawei and Motorola are working on such smartphones. However, it didn't reveal any detail about its anticipated foldable handset.

Samsung hopes its foldable phone would improve its profit.
