Samsung Will Earn Billions From The New iPhone X

Samsung Will Earn Billions From The New iPhone X

The Galaxy S8 sales have brought in an estimated $10.1 billion for Samsung while through iPhone X it stands to make $14 billion.

The first Samsung Galaxy Android 8.0 Oreo release is getting close now that the company's release an update with support for Google's new operating system.

Shipment volume of Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus fell compared to their respective predecessor models, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, during the same period in 2016. But Samsung executives will be beaming ear-to-ear about the generally positive reception the iPhone X has generated ahead of its November launch. Why? It also is also supplying OLED screens to iPhone X.

The report in WSJ says that Samsung and Apple partnership goes long back to when Samsung founder's son Lee Jae-Yong and former Apple CEO Steve Jobs negotiated a deal for making flash memory for iPods.

In fact, an earlier report had alleged that the iPhone X's astronomical $999 price tag was a direct result of Samsung's OLED dominance. It seems that the tech giant will proceed to battle with iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X in the upcoming additions to the lineup. With the Wall Street Journal, Counterpoint said that the majority of smartphone sales are made within 20 months of their debut, hence the timeframe of the analysis. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 also marks Samsung's entry to the dual camera set of phones. The 5.8-inch screen features ultra-slim bezels, and for the first time in Apple's iPhone history, the iPhone X lacks a home button and instead relies on Face ID - you can even pay with Face ID! It would appear that Counterpoint is focusing on the component manufacturing earnings rather than the end product earnings for the Galaxy S8 - which is fair, for this comparison.

The battle for market share between Apple and Samsung in the global smartphone market is one of the fiercest face-offs in the corporate world. Still, similar to production with Apple's A-series chips, Samsung will likely be involved with component supply for Apple devices for many years to come. All in all, this may be a short lived victory for the Note8 and iPhone 8 Plus, but let's let them enjoy it while it lasts.
