Samsung’s mobile chief takes a huge pay cut after slowing sales


Samsung's mobile head and co-CEO JK Shin is feeling the company's tumultuous performance right in his wallet. The exec earned around $630,000 last quarter (a combination of salary and bonuses), which is less than half of the $1.5 million he took home in the previous quarter, the WSJ reports. While the news only makes Shin slightly less of a millionaire than he was before, it's a clear sign of Samsung's shifting fortune. The electronics giant is still the largest smartphone maker in the world, with around 24 percent of total market share (according to IDC). But it's been steadily losing ground to inexpensive Chinese brands like Xiaomi. And Samsung has reason to be worried -- Xiaomi is now the world's third-largest smartphone company after its shipments more than doubled last quarter.
