In summary: smartphone sales and other consumer electronics products have offset the lowest revenue from semiconductors and displays. On the one hand the launch of the line of smartphone galaxy s21 gave a strong boost to sales, but also the demand for tablets, pcs, wearable devices, appliances and high-end TV was high. On the other hand, some difficulties encountered in the semiconductor market have influenced the results of a division which remains one of the main axes of the samsung budget.
At the moment the production plant of austen has resumed the activities, but samsung previews that the stop to production will also condition the results of the semiconductor division in the next trimester. The south Korean manufacturer however reiterates the desire to continue to strengthen its position in the market of smartphones and premium-end consumer electronics.
