Samsung has projected that its profits will beat previous estimates for Q3 2016 despite its recall operation surrounding defective Galaxy Note 7's.
It is expecting an operating profit of around $7 billion, with sales of around $44 billion. That figure is a $3.6 million increase year-on-year.
While its faced issues with the phone arm of its business, Samsung has likely been kept afloat by sales elsewhere, including its semiconductor manufacturing.
Sales on fire
Samsung had to recall its entire stock of Galaxy Note 7's after they were reported to catch fire during charging and regular use.
However, replacement phones have also been reported to overheat and ignite. One phone grounded a flight in Louisville after it set alight before take-off.
