Samsung Could Have The Best Quarter In Two Years And Its Primarily Because Of Its Flagship Phones
What Samsung failed to accomplish in two years from its smartphone business has quickly been achieved thanks to the hefty sales of its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge devices. Here are all the details showing how Samsung was able achieve a fabulous quarter.
Analysts Have Predicted The Samsung’s 2nd Quarter Earnings Are More Compared To The Previous Year
Thanks to a survey conducted by a total of 16 analysts, it has been reported that Samsung was able to record a second quarter operating earnings of $6.8 billion USD, making them 13 percent higher compared to the earnings of Q2 2015. Thanks to the event, this happens to be the highest figure reported by the company since it earned $7.4 billion in the first quarter of 2014. According to the analysts, the real momentum has been caused by Samsung’s mobile devices, which at the top spot are Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.
A total of 16 million units of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge were shipped in this quarter, with the 5.5-inch gaining the upper hand over its smaller 5.1-inch brother, naturally thanks to its larger screen and battery upgrade. It should also be noted that Samsung has decided to upgrade its low-end family of smartphones through noticeable hardware upgrades such as the incorporation of Super AMOLED displays and hardware improvements.
In terms of hardware specifications, both Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge come with either a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 SoC, and both of them also feature the much coveted MicroSD card slot, allowing you to have tons of storage in the palm of your hands. The maximum storage capacity of the smartphone is 200GB, so it is highly unlikely that you will be running out of storage anytime soon.
Additionally, both handsets packs a 12.3MP rear camera sensor with a wide aperture of F/1.7. This goes beyond the capabilities of Galaxy Note 5, which features an aperture of F/1.9, showcasing that Galaxy S7 and the edge version will perform very well in low-light conditions. Despite the fact that the number of megapixels have been decreased, it will actually be advantageous in low-light environments because more light per pixel will effortlessly be able to enter the sensor, resulting in an accurate and pleasing image, even in locations where there are limited sources of light.
