Samsung Galaxy S9 Not Selling as Well as Expected

Samsung Galaxy S9 Not Selling as Well as Expected

A South Korean publication has revealed that in a bid to launch foldable phones in 2019, Xiaomi and Oppo are procuring the required components for building such devices.

The report claims Huawei will be using bendable OLED panels from the Chinese supplier Beijing Oriental Electronics (BOE) for a limited run of smartphones that could probably arrive in "very early 2019". There is a possibility that these companies may also consider dealing foreign display makers such as LG Display or Japan Display.

After Samsung tried and failed to implement in-display fingerprint scanner into the Note 9 in time for the summer release (it's been trying since the S8, but we digress), the S10 will apparently by Samsung's first phone with it, and the first mass-produced Android from a popular brand that will sport the thing. An in-display sensor, on the other hand, was first introduced by Vivo on its X21 smartphone.

One of the most exciting developments in smartphones is future form factors - in particular, foldable smartphones.

Three dead in quake on Indonesia's Lombok
The islands are part of an area of intense seismic and volcanic activity of 25,000 square miles called the Pacific Ring of Fire . Some 220,000 people in countries around the Indian Ocean were killed, including 168,000 in Indonesia.

Huawei's design would reportedly feature some of the features that are highly anticipated for Samsung's device, such as a hinge located at a middle of the smartphone and a single display that is capable of folding in and out.

Samsung is yet to launch a smartphone with in-display fingerprint scanner even though it was one of the first companies to work on such a handset. Bringing on-screen fingerprint scanning and a triple-lens camera to the budget segment will ensure Samsung is managing to sell volumes, which could eventually counter poorer flagship sales, if they ever happen.

Those are solid numbers-profits rose 6 percent while revenues fell 4 percent-but Samsung's stock is heading down because of the firm's warnings on smartphone sales. However, Chinese manufacturers are expected to give tough competition to Samsung.
