Bloomberg notes that Samsung's OLED sales to Apple for its iPhone X have also been weaker than expected, despite Apple having flogged 52.2 million phones in the second quarter. Revenue is also down compared to last quarter, from 60.56 trillion won to 58 trillion.

The Korean electronics giant said Thursday that it expects to record an operating profit of 14.8 trillion Korean won ($13.2 billion) for the three-month period ended June 30, an increase of 5 percent over the year-ago-period.

Originally we'd heard that the Galaxy S10 would be arriving earlier than the S9 did this year, with many expecting it to be unveiled at CES at the start of January.

But we still don't know what the Galaxy X might look like. The device will employ foldable display panels, which is expected to go into mass production this summer.

Most notably, it's reported that the Gear S4 (the name of which will be changed to Galaxy Watch) will be powered by Wear OS, formally called Android Wear.

Flexible smartphones have been in works but we are yet to see a commercially available foldable smartphone in the market. The size, however, is said to reduce to 4.3-inch after the phone has been folded. 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.

Moreover, a Chinese rumor claims that Samsung SDI is already manufacturing the batteries for the Galaxy X model.
