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

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

Samsung posted record first quarter profits earlier this year, although a huge portion of that was thanks to the company's manufacturing and component division.

Revenue likely came in at 58 trillion won ($51 billion), a decrease of almost 5 percent from a year earlier.

As The Verge reports, it is believed that this is in part, due to do with sales of the Galaxy S9 waning, after booming in popularity with last year's Galaxy S8.

Samsung Electronics today revealed its earnings guidance for the second quarter of 2018, providing an estimation of its sales volume and operating profit for the three-month period ending in June.




Still, Ice Universe's claim runs directly opposite the increasing number of reports surrounding Samsung's upcoming launch plans.

The report shows that both the iPhone 8 and Samsung's Galaxy S9 Plus accounted for 2.4 percent of the global smartphone sales market share in May, with Apple's handset ever so slightly ahead. The device will employ foldable display panels, which is expected to go into mass production this summer.

It's rumored that the Beyond0 will be a lower-priced Galaxy S10 variant, the Beyond1 will be the "standard" model, and the Beyond2 will be the Galaxy S10+. We do not have anything better to offer and companies rarely use logic when naming various phone models so it may well happen. I am eager to make foldable phones because their impact on the industry will be very big. Currently, a couple of smartphone manufacturers, including Samsung, Huawei and Motorola are working on such smartphones.

Samsung hopes its foldable phone would improve its profit.
