Samsung exceeds expectations due to memory chip demand

Share

Samsung sold through a huge $56.4 billion in Q1 2018, with these sales including the new Galaxy S9 and the near unlimited want for memory across the world with ASIC miners and graphics cards.

Profits from the mobile unit, which once contributed more than 70 per cent of Samsung's overall profits in its 2012-2014 heyday, accounted for less than 20 per cent of total profit in the fourth quarter past year.

Revenue was estimated to have increased 18.7 percent to 60 trillion won, Samsung said in a regulatory filing. The record earnings have not been driven by smartphone sales as one would ordinarily assume but were mostly due to a high demand for memory chips. The company did not elaborate on its performance and will disclose detailed earnings in late April.
