Samsung Electronics, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today announced its earnings guidance for the fourth quarter, 2011. The electronics giant estimates a record high operating profit of 5.2 trillion won (4.5 billion US dollars) with a revenue of 47 trillion won (40.63 billion US dollars) in Q4 2011. No estimates for net profit and individual division performance as yet. Samsung has been impressive throughout the year with revenues increasing with each quarter. The fourth-quarter operating profit is largely in line with market forecast as experts expected solid demand for Samsung’s smartphones to drive up the company’s earnings to a record high. It is estimated that Samsung sold 28 million smartphones in the third quarter last year and is expected to grow even stronger in 2012.
