Samsung relinquishes top-selling smartphone spot to Apple for May 2018

It is not hard to imagine the reasons why Samsung is expected to experience a awful quarter, because according to analysts, the reason for the drop in profit is lackluster Galaxy S9 sales.

This is expected to be a drag on profit growth when the Korean conglomerate posts second quarter earnings on Friday.

The electronics maker is reporting estimated profit of 14.8 trillion Korean won (USD$13.2BN) on revenue of 58 trillion Korean won (USD$51.9BN) for the quarter. The more recent tweet says the Galaxy Watch will run Wear OS, so we lean towards that being the case.

Samsung is reportedly leading the race to build foldable smartphones with the development of a curved battery that it can produce in large numbers.

Early next year, it's likely that Samsung is going to announce the Galaxy S10. The device might make it to the market in March 2019.

Running Android 8 Oreo, the Galaxy J7 Star sports a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a classic 720 x 1280 pixels resolution, and employs a pretty generic design that Samsung's been using for years on its less advanced phones. However, it didn't reveal any detail about its anticipated foldable handset.

That said, Samsung may have liked the look of its Google-seeded smartwatch and changed its plans.

Samsung hopes its foldable phone would improve its profit.
