South Korea's Samsung Electronics said Friday it expected a record operating profit of 8.1 trillion won ($7.3 billion) in the third quarter, boosted by sales of its Galaxy smartphones.

Samsung, the world's largest technology firm by revenue, was giving earnings guidance before official results later this month. The predicted operating profit for July-September represents a 90.5 percent rise from a year earlier.
