Samsung in free fall as turnover down 60% in Q1 2019

  • Samsung set to launch first 5G smartphone

Samsung last week predicted that its first-quarter earnings would fall below market expectations because of a larger-than-expected decline in chip prices and weak demand for display panels.

Revenue likely fell 1.4 percent to 14.9 trillion won, the South Korean firm said, below a 15.3 trillion won consensus.

Ahead of its earnings report later this month, the South Korean electronics giant shared earnings guidance for operating profit in the first quarter of 2019 - and it doesn't look good. A year ago, sales in those departments were buoyant. The faster networks would also improve live broadcasts and streaming services for music and video while allowing for a broader range of virtual reality services, the companies say.

Perhaps it would have been better to launch Galaxy S10 a little earlier.

So if you're a Verizon customer with a Moto Z3 in some really specific parts of two specific cities, you can have 5G in the USA right now. According to market research firm Counterpoint Research, LG's global smartphone shipments a year ago were 3%. This time, it seems that the roles have reversed and that the Galaxy Note 10 will be following the Galaxy S10 before it. Samsung also plans to reduce spending and focus on profitability for its memory facilities. Regular customers in capital Seoul and some other major cities will be able to sign up for 5G services starting on Friday.

It was just a couple of years ago when we had one front camera and one rear camera on smartphones and today we see multiple cameras on the front and the back.

According to The Guardian, three South Korean carriers (SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus) switched on 5G at 11:00pm Korean Standard Time for six celebrities, including two members of K-pop band EXO. The company also expects impetus from the 5G migration to further bolster sales of its anniversary phones Galaxy S10 series and Galaxy Fold.

Samsung's new Galaxy Fold is a phone that folds in half and is priced at almost $2,000.
