Profits from the Mobile Business, determined by healthy sales for the Galaxy S8 and S8+, also enlarged considerably QoQ.
The Memory Business tactics to enlarge the Pyeongtaek fab to react to growing requirement for V-NAND. The business too expects to use capex on changing a part of obtainable planar capacity to V-NAND.

The Foundry Business is growing 10nm capability to tackle claim for cutting-edge process technology. In addition, it anticipates allotting considerable capex for converting part of line 11 from DRAM to image sensor construction in the second half. Additional, Samsung is constantly spending in stretchy OLED capability to react to rising demand from consumers.
Semiconductor Maintains Strong Performance
The Semiconductor businesses positioned KRW 8.03 trillion in working profits on combined income of KRW 17.58 trillion for the quarter.The Memory Business attained solid wages expansion in the quarter appreciation to sustained muscular stipulate for high-density server DRAM and SDD, in spite of weaker cyclic requirement for mobile. Limited supply situations also stayed in the industry, which permissioned for positive supply-demand circumstances and prices. For NAND, wages were determined by prolonged sales of value-added goods, such as mobile foodstuffs over 64GB, datacenter NVMe SSD and venture SSD. For DRAM, Requirement for distinguish products, such as high-density server goods and HBM, donated to wages expansion.
Display Panel Continues Solid Earnings
The Display Panel section posted KRW 7.71 trillion in combined income and KRW 1.71 trillion in working profit for the quarter driven by augmented sales of premium OLED displays and high-end, large-size LCD panels.
