Additionally, Android 8.1 Oreo coupled with the latest version of Samsung Experience is set to ship straight out of the box, with …

Samsung faces exposure as high as $1.2 billion after jury finds it infringed on mobile chip technology

Last month, Samsung was ordered to pay Apple $538.6 million for infringing on some of Apple’s patents related to the design of the iPhone. Now, Samsung has been punished again for having been caught with its hands in the cookie jar; and by cookie jar, we mean the intellectual property belonging to another firm without obtaining a license. In fact, it was the U.S. licensing arm of a South Korean University that brought the suit, which resulted in a federal jury ruling that Samsung did infringe on a U.S. patent covering FinFET technology.

Slow Galaxy S9 sales may lead to a drop in profits for Samsung, according to analysts

For the past six fiscal quarters, Samsung has continued to grow its profits year-on-year thanks to strong growth in the semiconductor sector. However, if the latest predictions from industry analysts are correct, Samsung looks set to post a decline in Q2 of 2018, and it may all be down to slow smartphone sales.

According to analysts, Samsung’s profits are expected to sit at $13.64 billion for the three-month period, representing a decline of 6%, while overall sales will also see a decline of 5% to $53.4 billion. This is due, in part, to slow Galaxy S9 sales that are seemingly lagging …
