Samsung profit misses estimates in second quarter

Samsung Galaxy S8

But we still don't know what the Galaxy X might look like. Last month a new rumor surfaced that claimed the Galaxy X will redefine high-end smartphones in terms of pricing when it launches.

This contradicts reports that the Galaxy S10 will be unveiled first.

Separately, regular leaker Ice Universe, who has a good record when it comes to these things, tweeted that the Galaxy X would be shown off at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next January.

Samsung's profit growth continues to be sluggish as apparently poor sales of the Galaxy S9 offset the strong performance of its component business.

There are also fears that a Chinese price-fixing probe into chipmakers including Samsung could limit the upside for DRAM prices, as China is the largest importer of memory products. Reports have claimed that the components of the foldable phone are already being manufactured, in time for an early 2019 launch. Samsung is expected to only manufacture between 300,000 and 500,000 units of its foldable smartphone.

T-Mobile says the Samsung Galaxy J7 Star is "coming soon", and the phone's home screen likely reveals its release date: July 13 (next Friday). It's unlikely, as Samsung may want to put some distance between the two devices, so perhaps we'll see it later in the year around IFA in Berlin - that is if it even exists. Following the publication of its Q1 results in April, Samsung warned investors that slowing sales of flagship models like the Samsung Galaxy S9 and increased marketing costs to address the situation.
