Samsung is launching a new smartphone. Will the Galaxy S8 finally generate some positive headlines? Exploding batteries, TVs that can be used to spy, corruption scandals...the South Korean electronics giant needs to polish its tarnished image.
The future of South Korea's electronics giant Samsung hangs by a thread after a court in Seoul sentenced the company's heir Lee Jae-Yong to five years in prison. What would be its impact on the South Korean economy?
The Korean tech giant has unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8. It seeks to draw a line under a safety scandal that led to a humiliating global recall of millions of its Galaxy Note 7 handsets.
Samsung Electronics has reported a steep rise in both operating profit and net earnings for the final quarter of last year. The strong results came as the firm battled with the aftermath of its Galaxy Note 7 disaster.
Samsung's new Galaxy S8 smartphone has gone on sale in a small number of markets, including South Korea. Analysts expect the device to become a major challenge to Apple's iPhone as pre-orders have soared.
