Note 9 Pen With Bluetooth Leaked

Note 9 Pen With Bluetooth Leaked

Samsung has all but confirmed its Galaxy Note 9 launch on August 9 with the Korean company saying, "Samsung Electronics will welcome a new member to the premium Galaxy family".

Smartphone sales started to cool a year ago after a decade of robust growth, but Samsung had managed to weather the slowdown, thanks to demand for memory.

"It's a bit disappointing", Ko Gyeong-beom at Yuanta Securities Korea told AFP, noting the company had posted expectation-beating operating profits for several quarters. Sales of organic light-emitting diode screens to Apple Inc. have also been weaker than expected, while the growth of semiconductor prices has been slowing.

Sales are estimated at 58 trillion won, down 4.9 percent from 61 trillion won a year earlier. "While chips and phones cancel each other out in profit, the weakening won may work in Samsung's favor in the second half".

Defending champ Joey Chestnut sets record with 74 hot dogs
In the women's category, defending champ Miki Sudo won for the fifth year in a row by eating 37 hot dogs and buns. A total of US$40,000 in prize money was up for grabs, with the first-place winners taking home US$10,000 each.

Samsung hasn't commented, but back in April warned that its mobile business would see "stagnant sales of flagship models amid weak demand and an increase in marketing expenses" in the second quarter. The guidance, released Wednesday ahead of full earnings later this month, didn't provide specific divisional results. This is a way for the South Korean phone maker to gauge the marketability of the device.

The outlook for chips remains upbeat, with production of Apple's next iPhone likely to support NAND flash memory prices after they fell by up to 15 percent in the second quarter, according to chip price tracker DRAMeXchange.

There are also fears that a Chinese price-fixing probe into chipmakers including Samsung could limit the upside for DRAM prices, as China is the largest importer of memory products.
