    Given how hot the interest is in the S8, their next quarter will be interesting to see

    Lower your phone prices, $am$ung.

      Unless Apple do, their flagships will be pegged at similar prices. Samsung make a slew of lower priced offerings also.

      Still with Apples new lower priced iPad will Samsung come down to match it at C$449. Not too many are buying at $599 or higher.

    So they lose multiple billions on the loss of phone sales like the Note 7 and then make it all back on the sale of parts like chips and screens which represent a tiny fraction of a phone’s cost. Interesting.

    • Can’t Fix Stupid

      Yep, it’s called diversification and it’s smart business.

    • h2oflyer

      What’s smart business is the numbers reporting. Article says main source of revenue is is chips and OLED displays. How many millions of cheap phones use OLED displays which would probably sell for the equivalent of $5 US ?

    • thereasoner

      There’s OLED and then there’s AMOLED and SAMOLED. True that they’ve come down in costs over the years, probably the biggest reason greedy Apple has finally started to use them. That said, Apple alone has a contract with Samsung worth almost 3 billion for some 100 million OLED panels with an as yet unknown level of quality/resolution so there’s definitely money in it.

  • Impressing. Let’s see in the next quarter

    Too bad that apple lacks any innovation at all. samsung is eating their lunch

    • Lil’ Sooky Denton

      Lol! Where’s your regular gig…?

    Didn’t expect that. I think a lot of Samsung’s problems may have been over exaggerated a bit.
