Samsung Electronics on Friday said its operating benefit for the quarter that finished in December probably rose 26% from a year back to 9 trillion Korean won ($8.22 billion).
It was generally in line with examiners’ estimate of 9.1 trillion won, as per Refinitiv SmartEstimate.
Samsung Electronics shares in South Korea bounced 1.33% in early trade.
The organization said its final quarter solidified sales probably came in at 61 trillion won, up almost 2% from a year sooner. Samsung didn’t separate how every business unit performed including its main benefit making semiconductor business.
Both operating benefit and merged sales fell on a quarter-on-quarter premise.
In the three months between July to September, the world’s biggest cell phone producer posted a 59% on-year bounce in operating benefit to 12.35 trillion won, mostly because of a lift popular for cell phones and consumer electronics. Be that as it may, Samsung had said it anticipated that benefits should decrease in the December quarter because of weak memory chip demand and extraordinary competition in the cell phone space.
Full outcomes for the December quarter are expected later this month.
Samsung is required to launch the freshest versions of its flagship Galaxy cell phones next Thursday, sooner than expected.
