Samsung is riding its line of Galaxy smartphones to new heights, setting quarterly records, according to a Friday preview of its second quarter earnings.
The South Korean company increased its profit by almost 80% from this point last year, bringing in a profit somewhere between $5.7 billion and $6.1 billion.
Those figures beat Samsung's expectations and also beat its record of $5.13 billion set in the previous quarter.
About $3.86 billion of Samsung's second quarter profit is believed to be coming straight from the company's mobile communications division, according to a report by the Associated Press.
The results are not the biggest surprise, seeing as a report from earlier this week showed Samsung's Galaxy phones are still in first place in U.S. in market share.
