The company declined to describe what the adjustment entails, but a person familiar with the company’s plans said a price cut is planned for the smartphones. The news came as the company announced that its second-quarter sales in its IT and mobile division fell 8.4 percent, to 26.06 trillion won ($22 billion), with mobile in particular dropping 7.3 percent, to 25.5 trillion won.

Formerly accounting for two-thirds of Samsung’s operating profit, smartphone shipments have been providing a smaller part of company’s profit in recent quarters, squeezed in emerging markets by low-cost handset vendors such as Xiaomi and Huawei.
