Samsung sees record quarterly profit on smartphone sales
Samsung Electronics has estimated that it will make a record profit in the October to December quarter.
It expects to make an operating profit of 8.8 trillion won ($8.3bn; £5.1bn) for the quarter, a 90% jump from the same period a year earlier.
That would make it five consecutive quarters of record earnings.
As the BBC's Lucy Williamson reports from Seoul, the success of its Galaxy range of smartphones has been a key driver of Samsung's growth.
