Designed from scratch in an operation dubbed "Project Zero", the Galaxy S6 and its curved-edges variant are critical for Samsung's plans to reverse plunging smartphone revenues that led to its first annual earnings fall in three years in 2014.

The shares closed up 4.9 percent, outperforming a 0.6 percent rise for the broader market. "We listen to our customers and we learn from our missteps," J.K.

The 24-hour sales bonanza imported from the US has become big business in the UK, with store bosses predicting that sales rung up on Friday will be double those of last year, at around £200m. Some of the high street’s biggest names, including John Lewis, Asda, Currys and Argos, will launch thousands of deals. Tens of thousands of shoppers are expected to queue outside supermarkets and shopping centres in the early hours of Friday to get their hands on aggressively discounted TVs, tablets and smartphones. Just as many are expected to log on from their beds, with John Lewis among the retailers launching deals at a minute past midnight.

Yildiz, the new owner, promised it would invest in the Middlesex-based firm, which has a 4,600-strong domestic workforce, with the chairman, Murat Ülker, tweeting: “United Biscuits is our new star.” In a statement, he added: “We want to grow United Biscuits to be a global player as part of Yildiz. This will include enhancing its position in the UK, where Yildiz currently has minimal presence, so we will continue to invest in the UK and Europe.” Yildiz, which owns Belgium’s Godiva Chocolate, is thought to have fought off competition from Kellogg’s in the US and rival biscuit maker Burton’s. United Biscuits employs about 7,100 people in total with about 4,600 in the UK at sites including London, Manchester, Carlisle, Glasgow, Halifax, Liverpool and Leicestershire.

Asda faces mass legal action from staff over equal pay

Law firm Leigh Day said that since revealing in April it was representing 400 Asda employees it had been approached by more than 19,000. The mostly female Asda shopfloor staff claim they are underpaid compared with mostly male colleagues working in the supermarket’s warehouses. The case could become the largest ever employment claim in the private sector, the lawyers said. If Asda, which employs 170,000 staff working across 370 stores and 23 depots, loses the claim it could be forced to pay staff the difference in earnings going back six years.

Michael Newman, a discrimination and employment law expert at Leigh Day, said: “In the supermarkets the checkout staff and shelf-stackers are mostly women. If the legal action succeeds other supermarkets who also own their distribution centres may face similar claims. BUSS3 Revision Booklet (Revised Version) Exam Technique: Maximise your Marks in BUSS3.
