The company estimated operating profits of 14.5 trillion won ($12.8 billion) in the July-September period, a record for quarterly profit and almost three times the 5.2 trillion won earned a year earlier.

Samsung said its July-September profit was likely 14.5 trillion won ($12.81 billion), compared with an average forecast of 14.3 trillion won from a Thomson Reuters survey of 20 analysts.

The company also estimates third-quarter sales of 62 trillion won compared to 47.82 trillion won a year ago.

The South Korean company did not elaborate on its performance and will disclose detailed earnings in late October.
