Samsung predicting second-highest operating profits ever for Q1, 2017

Samsung smartphone sales fell in the third quarter of 2016 by 14.2 percent year over year, making it the company's worst performance ever.

Revenue for the quarter likely rose 9.7 percent to 14.7 trillion won, the firm said.

Samsung Electronics has reported a 48% jump in profits during the first three months of 2017, despite challenges around the failure of its Galaxy Note 7 handset previous year.

On Thursday, April 6, Samsung shared that it expects its overall operating profit to touch 9.9 trillion won (approximately $8.8 billion) in Q1 2017. Some say the S8 could set a new first-year sales record.

Although its IT and mobile business is presumed to have posted lackluster earnings on the suspension of the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, industry watchers said the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus, which will hit shelves this month, will help the company recoup earnings down the road. Though Samsung has not spilled the beans regarding what will be unveiled, most likely the company is going to launch the Galaxy C7 Pro or the Galaxy C5 Pro smartphone in the country.

Samsung is clearly back in the game now with their Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus but should you go big and get the bigger model with a bigger battery and display or is the smaller model the better choice. This means that the 5.7-inch display that we've consistently been seeing on the company's Galaxy Note series might cease to exist in the future.

Her close confidante Choi is also on trial for forcing top South Korean firms, including the tech giant, to "donate" almost US$70 million to non-profit foundations which she allegedly used for personal gain.

Lee's arrest, the first for a Samsung chief even though his father was twice convicted of bribery, sent shockwaves through the company and triggered the announcement of a major reform of its top-down management style.

In court, Lee listened as prosecutors accused him of bribing Park and her confidant, Choi Soon-sil, in order to win support for a key merger that would cement his leadership of the sprawling Samsung business empire.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 smartphone was plagued with problems which caused the device to overheat and in some cases catch fire.
