Its sales stayed almost flat at 50 trillion won ($44 billion) during the first quarter.

Samsung Electronics has recently launched the Galaxy C9 Pro smartphone in India, after initially releasing it in China late previous year.

Samsung Electronics vice chairman Jay Y. Lee, heir to the parent Samsung group, has since been arrested and indicted for bribery, along with four other senior Samsung executives, in connection with a graft scandal that saw former South Korean president Park Geun-hye impeached.


Furthermore, as confirmed by Samsung a few weeks ago, the discontinued Galaxy Note 7 devices are getting refurbished. "Both the home appliances and the TV market will enter a seasonally strong period during the second quarter", Song said, adding the biggest short-term variable for LG's earnings will be how the G6 fares in overseas markets such as the United States.

The result was higher than the market consensus of 9.3 trillion won, according to financial data provider FactSet. Many users have pointed out that, for its price tag, Samsung should have included a better chip than this one. Shares in the company were down 0.57 percent, closing at 208,000 won on heavy profit-taking.

However, there's a catch: even if you could afford them, you'll only be able to get your hands on them if you live in South Korea and China, which will received the souped-up Galaxy S8 duo exclusively.


"This is better than expected", HMC Investment Securities Co analyst Greg Roh said.

Samsung holds back details about each business division's performance until it posts the finalized earnings report later this month.

Smartphone major Samsung today launched in India its new 4G smartphone "Galaxy C7 Pro" that will be available on Amazon from April 11, for Rs 27,990. As per the report from a Korea-based media outlet Yonhap News, Samsung is reconsidering its strategy and is planning to expand the sales of Galaxy S8+ 6GB model. The phone in the image looks a lot similar to the Galaxy S8+ in terms of dimensions.
