The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are unlikely to come close to their predecessors' sales figures, and Samsung's overall profits will decline as a direct consequence.
LG Electronics had a great overall first quarter of the year, generating profits of over $1 billion. The chaebol's mobile division lost money once again, but the G7 ThinQ might be a winner.
Samsung made more money between January and March 2018 than ever before, specifically around $14.5 billion in operating profit, but no thanks to the iPhone X.
But the Chinese tech company's modus operandi has always been to operate on low margins, so unless the IPO enables Xiaomi to grow to great heights, don't expect much sway here.
Apple is the unrivaled world heavyweight champion of smartphone profits, according to the latest Counterpoint Research analysis, with the iPhone X proving particularly lucrative during Q4 2017.
The two chaebols are expecting to good fiscal quarters this time around and the markets are expecting them to beat their expectations.
If you thought the $349 HomePod was expensive, it turns out Apple spends a lot to make its first-ever smart speaker, which makes profit margins pretty thin.
Before it can return to quarterly profitability with Google's help, HTC's monthly income scores are still shrinking, and new Vive headsets will probably not help that much.
Sony will have a new CEO, CFO and mobile business skipper starting April 1, reporting astounding overall financial results for fiscal Q3 2017, but once again losing on smartphones.
LG lost another $192 million on smartphones during Q4 2017, nonetheless reporting all-time high overall annual revenues of $55.4 billion.
Samsung probably sold around 320 million smartphones in 2017, and its expectations for 2018 circle that same number as profits become more important than volume.
Apple is in record-breaking form this year-end quarter, according to IHS Markit research, as the lucrative iPhone X continues to sell like hotcakes.
Samsung Electronics is keen to avoid a leadership "vacuum" with a younger new generation of managers while making even more money during Q3 than Q2 2017.
Samsung Electronics might be making crazy amounts of money right now, but an "unprecedented crisis inside out" continues to shake up its management.
The iPhone X was always supposed to be lucrative for Apple arch-rival Samsung, but $14 billion may exceed the chaebol's wildest dreams.
Samsung could enjoy three consecutive quarters of record profits this year, with Q3 and Q4 tallies projected at $12.5 billion and $13.6 billion.
Total Apple revenue was on the rise this past quarter compared to last year, and it's all thanks to "services." And iPads. And of course, iPhones.
As attractive as we found it, the LG G6 simply didn't sell well during Q2 2017. But the company's home appliances and TVs were profitable enough.
Samsung profit numbers exceeded expectations and crushed past records during the year's second quarter, thanks mainly to chips, OLEDs and Galaxy S8s.
Instead of helping LG's smartphone division finally yield a quarterly profit, the G6 contributed to bigger losses and lower overall earnings.
Thanks to the beloved Galaxy S8 duo, but more importantly memory chips and OLED screens, Samsung expects to post record profit numbers this Q2.
Intel can probably kiss that 24 year-old chipmaking crown goodbye already, as Samsung moves closer and closer to taking over control of the market.
Sony has finally found a way to stop its smartphones from bleeding money, but does it even matter anymore?
