Samsung predicts Q1 surge in operating profit
Samsung has predicted its operating profit will almost double to 5.8tn Won (£3.22bn) for the first quarter of its financial year.
The manufacturer is also predicting a surge in sales, up to around 45tn Won (£25.27bn) from 36.99bn Won last year (£20.60bn).
The company is expected to reveal the Samsung Galaxy S III in the coming months, with speculation about the device's features reaching fever pitch. Reports this morning claimed Samsung will eschew 3D support and include a Home button, following suggestions it might opt for on-screen navigation.
