Samsung has a bad run: For the seventh consecutive year, reports South Korea's leading electronics company a declining quarterly profit. Even the Galaxy S6 and S6 Galaxy Edge can not stop the decline of Samsung - on the contrary: Because the manager miscalculated and Samsung does not extradite enough devices, Apple's competitor will not achieve the earnings expectations of the market for the second quarter of 2015 is expected. The leading South Korean electronics company expects operating profit to seventh quarterly decline YoY as a result. The profit from ordinary operations for the April to June estimated Samsung on Tuesday to 6.9 trillion won (about 5.5 billion euros) - and thus lower by a whopping four percent than in 2014. In terms of sales, the company expects its earnings outlook in with a decrease of 8.3 percent to 48 trillion won. Samsung traditionally puts his exact figures in front until a later date.
Miscalculation at S6 and S6 Edge
According to a report of the "Wall Street Journal" the Samsung manager went before the start of the new smartphones on the assumption that the conventional Galaxy S6 many times can sell so well as the S6 Edge. The Galaxy S6 Edge is similar to the Galaxy S 6, but has a bent to the left and right sides of the screen. In fact, the demand should be about have been equally strong in both versions, so that there were bottlenecks in the Edge. Samsung Electronics - the flagship company of the conglomerate Samsung - warned in April for the launch of Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge against short-term supply shortages. However, analysts also estimate that Samsung face of competition from the United States and China must cut back sales expectations for its new top-class Smartphone total.
Tough competition from China
In the smart phone market is raging a tough price competition in both low as well as expensive equipment. In Asia, made last year particularly local manufacturers in China and India to South Koreans its leading position in the business with mobile phones and smartphones dispute. In the premium segment, especially Apple posted big sales success. Samsung itself named no sales figures for the second quarter. The long-time smartphone leader is also the world's largest producer of memory chips and televisions. By; Rainer Schuldt
