The company says revenue likely fell 14% to 52 trillion won ($45.7 billion). It will release a finalized earnings report later this month.
Samsung last week predicted that its first-quarter earnings would fall below market expectations because of a larger-than-expected decline in chip prices and weak demand for display panels.
