Samsung has just announced its financial results for the fourth quarter of 2010.
The company’s Mobile Communications and Telecommunications Systems businesses reported a record operating profit of 1.44 trillion won (about $1.29 billion) for the quarter – a 38% increase compared to Q4 2009.
The total number of handsets sold by Samsung in Q4 2010 was 80.7 million. This helped the company achieve its goal of selling 280 million mobile devices throughout the year.
As previously reported, Samsung saw strong smartphone sales in 2010 (with more than 10 million customers buying the high-end Galaxy S Android smartphone).
60 million Samsung smartphones are expected to be shipped this year. One of the company’s flagship smartphones is the Galaxy S2, which will be officially unveiled at MWC 2011. In the press release announcing its Q4 2010 results, Samsung has confirmed that the new Galaxy S would have a dual-core processor and a Super AMOLED Plus display.
Samsung also said that it would “complement its Galaxy Tab with a range of devices to optimally meet various user needs.” We’ll bring more details on Samsung’s upcoming devices next month, when MWC debuts.
