Samsung Electronics has posted record first quarter sales figures.
In its earnings announcement Thursday, the South Korean tech giant said it logged sales of around 59 billion U.S. dollars, up more than 18 percent on-year.
It also pulled in roughly eight.four billion dollars in operating profit.
That's a 45.five percent jump on-year.
Industry watchers say Samsung's strong earnings were largely thanks to solid global sales of TVs, home appliances and smartphones.
