After Galaxy J6, Now Samsung Rebrands Galaxy J8 as Galaxy On8

Consolidated operating profit stood at 14.87 trillion won (13.3 billion US dollars) in the April-June quarter, up 5.7 percent from the same period of past year.

An average of estimates compiled by Bloomberg News had forecast 11.6 trillion won for the period. As it was reported earlier, the Galaxy On8 comes with the Snapdragon 450 chipset and is the third smartphone from Samsung to sport the said SoC. Samsung has also added other features such as Super AMOLED Infinity display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio, Android 8.0 Oreo and a beefy 3500mAh battery. While Samsung's revenue declined by 4% to 58.5 trillion ($52 billion), its net profit remained nearly flat at 11.04 trillion won ($10 billion).

The official leak comes a week before Samsung's much hyped NY event, where the company is expected to unveil a new Galaxy Note smartphone and had been tipped to launch tablets, a smartwatch, and potentially its first smart speaker.

Adding to its troubles, its vice-chairman Lee Jae-yong, scion of the founding family, was jailed previous year for his part in the corruption scandal that brought down former president Park Geun-hye.

It's not all about looks though as the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to feature some upgrades that won't be apparent to the naked eye.

Samsung shares slid 0.5 percent by 0254 GMT, compared with 0.1 percent drop in the broader market .KS11 .

While the NAND cycle has reversed, with the market veering towards oversupply, Samsung indicated that it was seeing higher memory content for devices (8TB server SSDs and 128GB mobile storage modules).

"The semiconductor sector fell short of expectations but its outlook for the second half of this year is rather positive as demand for DRAM chips are solid". That's a significant step below the price of the Galaxy Tab S4, which should make it a better proposition for those looking for a more wallet-friendly tablet. The World Cup saw strong sales of premium televisions and the semiconductor department is still the company's major profit driver.

RAM sales are high, and Samsung expects demand to continue to rise in the second half of its fiscal year.

In brief: In exactly one week from today, Samsung will show off the Galaxy Note 9 at an Unpacked event in Brooklyn, New York. "In response, Samsung will seek to expand sales by introducing a new Galaxy Note earlier than usual, which offers exceptional performance for a reasonable price", according to the company.

The overall tablet market has been in decline but tablets catering to professionals and the enterprise has been increasing, Samsung officials told ZDNet.
