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.

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.

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.
