Samsung (SSNLF.PK) provides earnings guidance for Q4, saying it likely turned a profit of $8.3B with overall smartphone shipments for the quarter totaling around 63M units - around 500 every minute. Shipments of it's flagship Galaxy S III, which overtook the iPhone 4S in the third quarter to become the world's best-selling smartphone, are likely to have slipped to around 15M from 18M in July-September, but estimated sales of around 8M Galaxy Note II 'phablets', should more than make up for that - pushing the overall smartphone shipments number to around 63M.
