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. Compared to the 14.07 trillion won profit from last year's second quarter, Samsung's performance improved, but it failed to reach the market's estimate of $15.2 trillion won, as pointed out by Yonhap.

Revenue likely came in at 58 trillion won ($51 billion), a decrease of almost 5 percent from a year earlier. Well, at least in terms of the best-selling smartphones list from Counterpoint's Market Pulse survey for May 2018.

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. Samsung is expected to post its finalized earnings report later this month.

Furthermore, the report asserts that the Samsung SDI is developing a foldable phone with V-shaped battery.
