Samsung puts Q3 operating profit at record W8.1 tril.

Samsung Electronics, the world's largest technology company by revenue, estimated Friday that it posted a record operating profit of 8.1 trillion won ($7.3 billion) in the third quarter of the year.

The preliminary estimate for the July-September period marked a 90.6 percent surge from 4.3 trillion won a year earlier and a 20.5 percent gain from the previous quarter, the company said in a regulatory filing.

The figure beat a median forecast of 7.6 trillion won by 26 securities companies polled by market researcher FnGuide.

Samsung's third-quarter revenue jumped 26 percent on-year to reach a record 52 trillion won, passing the 50 trillion won mark for the first time, the company said. A net profit estimate was not provided. (Yonhap)
