Samsung is not due to report final financial results for the July - September 2018 quarter for a few more weeks, but it’s pretty obvious that the company is headed for yet another record-breaking profit score . For the third quarter in a row, Samsung’s smartphones are forecasted to see drops in operating profit between July and September, with divisional earnings “pressured” by Galaxy Note 9 marketing costs. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait for a more detailed analysis of the latest flagship’s success, as well as Samsung’s Galaxy S10 expectations. Until then, you might be interested to hear the company’s display unit is looking at around 812 billion won ($730 million) in Q3 2018 operating profit, benefitting from a rebound in prices for “large displays”, as well as increased orders for OLED panels after Apple’s recent launch of next-gen iPhones.

The LG V40 ThinQ is right around the corner , the V35 ThinQ and V30 are still two of the best no-notch high-end smartphones around, so what we have for you today is... an interesting deal on the LG G7 ThinQ . The iPhone X -inspired 6.1-inch LCD flagship is barely four months old, receiving a number of discounts already to compensate for a few obvious shortcomings. But if you’re willing to overlook that divisive screen cutout and unnecessarily thick “chin”, this bad boy arguably delivers more than enough bang for your 550 bucks. You can get the LG G7 ThinQ at that killer price in your choice of Aurora Black or Platinum Gray paint jobs, but keep in mind this is a Verizon-locked refurbished product. On the bright side, the heavily marked-down phone should “look and work like new, with limited to no signs of wear.” $550 is a solid $200 off the handset’s list price in both unlocked and Verizon-specific variants. You can still save … [Read more...] about LG G7 ThinQ price drops from $750 to $550, but there’s a catch

If you live in the U.S. and end up having to pay much more for your next Apple iPhone, you might put the blame squarely on President Donald J. Trump. The president went against the advice of his rapidly changing staff (can't tell the players without a scorecard) and announced tariffs against imports from China. A 25% tariff will be added to as much as $50 billion worth of goods from the country. The majority of products affected are said to be from the high-tech sector.While many consider the Apple iPhone to be as American as Apple Pie, the truth is that the handset is designed in the U.S. and is assembled in China. From there, it is shipped to other countries including the U.S. That would make the device vulnerable to Trump's tariffs. The president says that the tariffs placed against Chinese imports are "the first of many," and China's U.S. ambassador said his government is "not afraid" of a trade war.If a 25% tariff is slapped on the iPhone, it will be up to Apple and individual … [Read more...] about Trump’s tariffs on Chinese imports could raise Apple iPhone prices in the U.S.
