Samsung posts record $6.6B net profit for Q4 2012

Samsung posted fourth-quarter earnings for 2012 on Friday, and the company’s profits notably swelled to a record 76-percent high due to smartphone sales and its chip business.

Huawei’s profits climb by a third to $46B, expects 20% revenue rise this year

Huawei, the second largest telecoms manufacturer in the world, saw its profits rise 33% last year, reports Reuters.

Global revenue rose 21 percent from a year ago to 288.2 billion yuan ($46.51 billion) in 2014 for Huawei and is expected to jump another 20 percent this year, the Shenzhen-based company said.

The growth has been mostly driven by LTE expansion within China, its home market being responsible for the bulk of its sales.

The company announced an Android Wear smartwatch at Mobile World Congress earlier this month (where we got a hands-on). No pricing was given, though the company has denied suggestions that it would be as high as $1000.
