Samsung says that the 802.11ad standard maintains maximum speed by eliminating the co-channel interface and thus removing the gap between theoretical and actual speeds. The 60GHz frequency is more than 10x times faster than that of 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi technologies.

samsung profit decline


The Smartphone market is unstable, it has its ups and downs. Samsung announced its earnings guide for Q3 2014. The Korean giant expects a significant drop in profits over the same period last year about 60% to be precise.


The company expects to record profits of 4.1 trillion won (about $3.8 billion) from approximately 47 trillion won in sales. The latter are down 20% from this time last year.


Smartphone sales by Samsung are slightly up for the period. However, increased marketing costs and declining product prices hurt the company's bottom line.

Reuters reports that Samsung is planning to invest the gargantuan $14.7 billion in a new chip-making factory over the next three years. That's the biggest investment the company has ever made into a single plant.

 

According to Samsung's plans, the plant is going to be built in Pyeongtaek, which is 75 km south of Seoul and create 150,000 jobs. Interestingly, the company hasn't made a final decision yet on whether the factory will create processors or memory chips.

But with Samsung estimating the new factory is going to be finished by the second half of 2017, there's a lot of time to make this decision. Rumors suggests Samsung is going to be making the upcoming Apple A9 chip, which will go into the company's future phones and tablets.
