Samsung have just announced that they’re expecting a drop in operating profit compared to the same quarter last year. This is the first report that factors in the sales of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge and yet Samsung say that they’re expecting a drop in profits.
The estimation shows a four percent drop from Q2 2014 where it earned 7.2 trillion won (US$ 6.26 billion) to Q2 2015 where it earned 6.9 trillion won (US$ 6.12 billion). But the sales of the S6 and S6 Edge did help Samsung recover from the hefty 30 percent drop in operating profits during last quarter.
4 percent is a much better number than 30 percent and perhaps shows that Samsung could be able to increase its operationg profits during the coming 2 quarters especially with the release of the Note 5 and possibly the S6 Edge Plus. Analysts state that the S6 Edge isn’t able to do as well as it could because the demand is higher than the supply while the S6 doesn’t have as good a demand as expected.
