Samsung has just posted its earnings for the Q3 period, with profits of $9.6 billion setting a new record high for the South Korean giant. The increased profits are thanks to its cheaper Galaxy smartphones, as well as profits from its memory side of things - such as Flash storage and RAM. Samsung has seen increased demand for its chips in the upcoming next-gen consoles, smartphones, servers, PCs and much more.

 

The company is seeing less profits on its TVs as prices continue to drop, but sales of its 60-inch and higher TVs are said to be growing.
