Samsung Galaxy Watch running Wear OS could possibly still be a thing

Samsung Galaxy Watch running Wear OS could possibly still be a thing

IBTimes previously reported that Samsung is preparing to launch its Galaxy X foldable phone at CES 2019 in January and its Galaxy S10 flagship handset at MWC 2019 in February.

Samsung has struggled with "weaker-than-projected sales" of its Galaxy S9 smartphones, according to Bloomberg, which have reportedly sold the lowest of any flagship Samsung smartphone since 2012's Galaxy S3 with expected shipments of 31 million units this year.

Why it matters: As the biggest phone manufacturer in the world, we've become used to seeing Samsung posting record quarterly profits, but it looks as if the streak has come to an end.

If the news is accurate, it'd be a far cry from the 210mAh flexible cell design that the Samsung SDI subsidiary came up with four years ago.

D'Arcy Short was the second highest scorer in the innings with a steady 42-ball 46. The 31-year-old just needed 50 balls to bring up his hundred, his second in T20Is.

The smartphone market has been slowing down in recent quarters.

The Korean giant's earnings guidance for Q2 2018 includes expected consolidated sales to be approximately 58 trillion won ($52 billion USD), while the expected consolidated operating profit should be around 14.8 trillion won ($13.25 billion USD). This contradicts reports that the Galaxy S10 will be unveiled first. The device will employ foldable display panels, which is expected to go into mass production this summer. These OELD displays are said to be 7.3-inch wide while unfolded and 4.5-inch in folded state. The iPhone 8 was trailed by the Galaxy S9 Plus, iPhone X, Xiaomi Redmi 5A, and the iPhone 8 Plus.

It's no secret that smartphone sales are in a slump. Furthermore, the report asserts that the Samsung SDI is developing a foldable phone with V-shaped battery.
