Samsung reportedly earns $8.1 billion in Q4 profits

With reports of over 500 handsets sold every minute during Q4 of 2012, Samsung has reportedly earned a whopping $8.1 billion in total profits int hat time period. That number also includes the money they earned from flat screens it makes for other mobile devices such as Apple’s iPhone’s. This comes to no surprise as Samsung’s two top dogs during Q4 was their Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note 2. The Galaxy S III reportedly sold about 15 million units, a slight dip from 18 million the previous quarter but likely due to the fact that their Galaxy Note 2 sold a good 8 million putting the two combined at a whopping 23 million units. Lets also not forget that number doesn’t include Samsung’s other 35 smartphone/tablet variants that flooded the market.

Valued at close to $230 billion, Samsung shows no signs of slowing down as they plan on even having a better 2013. With already successful lines in their Galaxy S series, Note series and Tab series, the successors of each line are already hyped and expected to boast huge sales this coming summer/fall.

With 2012 being a monumental year for Samsung, do you think they’ll surpass expectations this year? With Galaxy S IV already the most anticipated device this year, I wouldn’t be surprised if Samsung tops last year.
