Will the Galaxy S7 have a ‘chipgate’ problem of its own?

Soon after the iPhone 6s became available to buyers last September, some users starting probing the two chip models powering iPhone 6s models. The processors should be identical, both A9 chips, but they are made by Samsung and TSMC. Some testers claimed that the TSMC one fared better in tests than the Samsung chip, even though they were supposed to offer the same performance.

Meanwhile, the upcoming Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are expected to be powered by two distinct processors from Samsung and Qualcomm, which might not offer the same performance.

Galaxy S7: Samsung’s not even trying to hide the new ‘Edge’ anymore

Much has been written about Samsung’s desire to keep its flagship devices a secret, but the South Korean titan has never really been able to do it. It managed to limit image leaks in some years but completely failed to prevent fans from learning more details about the hardware of unreleased devices. The Galaxy S7 is a huge failure in that regard. Almost everything has leaked online, including high-resolution press renders and an extensive preview that pretty much offers readers an early review of the handset.

In fact, at this point, not even Samsung is keeping the Galaxy S7 edge a secret, as the device is listed on its developer site in plain view.

Despite an unfortunate typo in the subheading of market research firm Juniper Research’s press release that reads million with an “M,” the company has found that smartphone shipments for the full year last year reached 1.4 billion units. That figure is up from the estimated 1.2 billion smartphones shipped in the prior year, but you wouldn’t know it to look at Juniper’s breakdown by company.

In fact, the only major global player in the smartphone market that saw any real growth at all in 2015 was… you guessed it… Apple. More →

Samsung Earnings Q4 2015

Samsung vs. Apple: How did their holiday quarters compare?

Samsung vs. Apple: How did their holiday quarters compare?

Samsung posted earnings in line with expectations early Thursday morning, noting a sharp slowdown in growth that the company believes will continue through 2016. Samsung said on Thursday that it earned a fourth-quarter operating profit of 6.14 trillion Korean won, or approximately $4.4 billion. The figure marks a healthy 16% gain, however Samsung said net profit tumbled 40% to 3.2 trillion Korean won, or $2.7 billion, due to nonoperating expenses.

The sharp slide comes in the same quarter that Samsung’s chief rival Apple posted a net profit that inched up to $18.4 billion, besting its own prior record and marking the most profitable three-quarter period any company has ever reported. More →
