Samsung often makes the press as a manufacturer of smartphones but it is a big company with fingers in almost every vertical pie.
As well as making smartphones, for example, Samsung also makes components for a variety of purposes and has a big flat panel business too.
It also makes memory components and expects bouyant sales in the second half of this year.
But it sounded a warning about its smartphone business as it faces increasing competition from Chinese manufacturers, particularly at the low end.
It said in a regulatory statement that its high end S6 Edge phone is selling so well it’s unable to meet demand.
