Samsung sees profit growth slow in Q2 as competition heats up

Samsung Galaxy A8 Samsung's mobile woes drag on profit growth
Kenneth Drake | 02 August, 2018, 18:29

Samsung is also hoping to turnaround its mobile communications business with new models coming later this year, starting with the Galaxy Note9 phablet, set to be unveiled on august 9.

Features from the Note series such as Samsung Live Message and screen-off memo have also been adapted to the Tab S4. It's powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and a big 7,300mAh battery. Samsung is already rumored to offer early buyers interesting deals, including a free pair of AKG headphones or considerable in-game currency for Fortnite for Android ($100 to $150 worth of V-Bucks). On the front, you'll find a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display with minimal bezels, a Quad HD resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio.

"In mobile, in addition to new flagship smartphone launches, memory content is projected to increase in mid-range models as they begin to support high-specification mobile games, on-device AI and dual camera features", said Samsung. Multi-screen has been a hot demand for Galaxy tab users.

Samsung is due to announce the latest iteration of the Galaxy Note smartphone next week, which it said would hit shelves sooner than previous years. This is for the first time that Samsung Dex comes along with a tablet. There are no battery life claims for the Tab A but the Galaxy Tab S4 is rated to last up to 16 hours of video playback.


The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is powered by a Qualcomm® Snapdragon 835 Octa Core chip and 4GB of RAM. When the Tab S4 is connected to the optional Book Cover Keyboard, a desktop experience through which you can open multiple desktop-style windows for your Android apps will be displayed.

But the Galaxy Tab S4 also diverts from the iPad Pro playbook-and, conspicuously, from the rest of the Android/Chrome OS ecosystem by supporting Samsung's proprietary Dex technology. Samsung also notes support for Samsung Knox for security purposes, especially if used in an enterprise setting.

It also comes with enhanced S Pen.

The phone's price was leaked a bunch of times already, for various global markets, and we have one more leak that paints the same picture. According to the listing, the 64GB model will cost $650, which is roughly around Rs 44,500, while the 256GB storage is listed for $750, which translates around Rs 50,000.
