AmiMoJo writes "It seems that the smartphone and display panel markets are booming for Samsung. Net profit was 7.8 trillion won ($7bn; £4.5bn) in the April to June quarter, a 50% jump from a year ago. Flagship products such as the Galaxy S4 are said to have contributed to the increase. Samsung's display panel unit alone, which has made Samsung the world's biggest TV manufacturer, also reported a 46% surge in the same period to 1.12 trillion won. Earnings were boosted by strong demand for high value-added panels for IT as well as TV panels sized 60-inch and over."
