Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to have 256 GB, Emperor Edition in pipeline

Chip business was the top earner among Samsungs businesses for Q2 2017 with $7.2 billion operating profits (KRW8 trillion) out of KRW17.58 trillion revenue, or about $15.7 billion.

What's also interesting about Samsung's wording is the "marketing expenses" reference. Those other products helped the South Korean tech giant post record profits for the second quarter.

Samsung has sent out press invites for its Unpacked event on August 23rd where the company is expected to announce the highly anticipated Galaxy Note 8.

First, the numbers - Samsung made $12.7 billion of operating income and $9.7 billion of pure profit last quarter, the highest in the company's history.

The world's biggest maker of memory chips, smartphones and TVs is set to smash its annual profit record after better-than-forecast performance in its mobile business lifted April-June profit slightly above its early-July guidance, analysts said.

A few days after the leak of photos no doubt about the future design of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, the web had not finished with the smartphone.

A significant part of this profit is attributed to growth in the sale of high-quality chips, which are selling at higher prices due to increased levels of demand from companies requiring more processing power for cloud computing. Its mobile business recovered some of its reputation dented by fire-prone Galaxy Note7 that led to largest-ever technology recall and eventual discontinuation of the phone. The company will also release a model with the Exynos 8895 chip for other markets.

However, Greg Roh, an analyst at HMC Investment Securities, told AFP: "Samsung has surpassed its rivals for now but Apple usually sees little fluctuation in its profits whereas Samsung's profits fluctuate largely on memory chip prices".

"Samsung is under huge pressure in the mid-tier from the Chinese players", said Canalys research analyst Ishan Dutt, in a statement, "It needs to use its brand to make its mid-tier devices more desirable". According to the report, it looks like this particular variant will be available in South Korea and China, just like how they launched a 6GB RAM variant of the Galaxy S8 Plus there initially.
