Samsung expects incredible growth in Q3 2020
As we can see, recently Samsung has been very successful. It seems that the coronavirus not only did not interfere with the Korean company; but, on the contrary, helped to consolidate the successes.
The company released a forecast that its third-quarter profit will be about 12.3 trillion won ($10.6 billion), up 58% from the same period last year. Samsung also reported that the company’s revenue increased nearly 5% to 66 trillion won ($57 billion).
This optimism and such indicators are especially interesting in light of the fact that the company reported a 56% decrease in profits throughout the year. Samsung did not specify what influenced such results, but, most likely, the growth was due to the high demand for the company’s products – many people had to work from home and more often needed an update of their devices.
The South Korean company sells more smartphones and TVs than any other brand, but it’s not just retail products that are doing so well. Samsung has a very successful business of selling memory chips to device makers around the world.
In recent months, Samsung’s chip manufacturing has received a boost from data centers. Revenue from parts sales increased by 13% in the second quarter to 18.2 trillion won.
