Samsung has just posted its earnings report for the first three months of 2014, with the company seeing $51.8 billion in revenue for Q1 2014, which is up ever so slightly year-over-year.
As for profits, we have $8.2 billion in operating profits, and $7.3 billion in net profit. Samsung's mobile business did quite well, providing $30.29 billion of the $51.8 billion in revenue, and $6.2 billion of the operating profit - meaning mobile is pretty much everything for Samsung right now. The South Korean-based company saw mobile operating profits jump 18% from the end of last year, thanks to the success of the Galaxy S4 and Note 3 smartphones.
We should see some even bigger numbers in the next six months or so, thanks to the Galaxy S5 already off to a big start. As for tablets, Samsung said that sales on slates remained "solid" with total shipments reaching close to 13 million in Q1 2014.
