Not even a year after one of the biggest public relations disasters of consumer technology in history, Samsung has risen with its most profitable quarter yet – enough to push it ahead of Apple as the most profitable technology company at world.
As reported by the Wall Street Journal, South Korean chaebol announced today that its second-quarter operating result hit a record 14 trillion won (US $ 12.1 billion), slightly higher than Apple’s operating profit is expected to be 10.6 billion over the same period.
The bulk is due to the activity in Samsung semiconductor development and also to the success of Galaxy S8 (a device that, in my opinion, is the best material for the phone phone).
And while the quarterly figures tend to rebound depending on the time of year – last year, briefly exceeded Samsung’s Huawei as the most profitable Android maker result in Note 7 – Samsung and Apple were the first two as of now, And it is unlikely that someone will exceed it at any time, unless one of them suffers from a product failure.
This means that the only company that affected Samsung in the first place is Apple.
But if Apple fans believe that the iPhone 8 to come (including all reports and leaks indicate a major upgrade in the innovative iPhone 1 boring level) push the giant of Cupertino on top, certainly will not do Yes, according to WSJ (I came to this conclusion earlier this year). The reason? The Premium version of the next iPhone will generate Samsung OLED screens.
This is a very interesting position for Samsung.
Its own flagship phone is currently the talk of the city, and the only phone that has real chances of damaging the sale this year is an iPhone that uses Samsung display technology. More iPhone sold more than 8 tablets from Samsung are profitable.
Apple, of course, does not really benefit Samsung like that, but he has no choice.
As I’ve written in almost every review on my phone, it can not be denied that OLED screens are superior to LCD screens (this is what the iPhone uses).
And the only other company in the world to get closer to Samsung, which is the production of OLED is the LG competitor that crosses the city. This is why there have been so many rumors about Apple that I wanted to partner with LG for OLED sourcing panels as if Apple had to help another company, it would be better not to help someone who breathes the neck the supremacy of smartphones.
