Curiously, the shape of the Galaxy Watch seems reminiscent of that of the Gear S2, rather than the S3 or Sport, with much shorter lugs. When folded, you'd see a small display bar on one side and cameras on the other, sources said.
It's about two and a half weeks until Samsung unveils the Galaxy Note 9 to the world, but if fresh rumours are to be believed it might just be the last time Samsung launches a Galaxy Note product. Samsung is reportedly planning to put anything between 3000mAh to 6000mAh batteries in its foldable smartphone.
In 2013, Samsung unveiled prototypes of its flexible OLED displays.
From a financial standpoint this does make sense in a way as Samsung does not need to allocate resources towards the research and development of the Note series and instead be focused on their mainstream Galaxy series. Almost ever since, reports emerged that Samsung was close to releasing a foldable smartphone, though no product ever materialized.
According to a report by The Bell, Samsung is struggling to adjust its flagship model lineup to defeat profitability deterioration caused by the saturation of the smartphone market.
This is apparently the first time in the history of the Galaxy S series that Q2 sales are lower than the Q1 numbers. With the bezel-less displays, even the smartphones with 6-inch screen size are now widely adopted. However, the company is still targeting to ship about 12 million units of the smartphone.
"Functions (that) Samsung's mobile phones have are not attractive enough for customers to spend more money on", Song Myung-sup, analyst at HI Investment & Securities, told Reuters.
There's a second theory about the changes that will come to Samsung.
