At its Q1 earnings report, Samsung reiterated its stance that there isn't anything wrong with the Galaxy S8.
Adopting such a structure isn't desirable for Samsung's competitiveness, the Suwon, South Korea-based company said Thursday. It was the biggest quarterly net profit since the third quarter of 2013. The company blamed batteries supplied by two manufacturers for the problem.
The mobile unit had operating profit of 2.07 trillion won. Samsung also mentioned "the launch of a new flagship smartphone in the second half", but didn't tag the Galaxy Note name to whatever that presumably large-screened device will be.

Revenue increased more modestly to 50.55 trillion won ($59.81 billion), a 0.77 trillion won ($911.5 million) increase from Q1 2016.
