More than three-quarters of its 8.5 trillion won quarterly operating profit came from its handset business, with its Galaxy smartphones continuing to see solid sales.

Samsung launched the Galaxy S5 earlier in April at a cheaper price than its previous flagship smartphones, as sales of affordable handsets see strong growth in emerging countries.

The Korean company said lower marketing expenses also bolstered its profit.

It forecast its second-quarter earnings will grow because its key businesses -- display panels, TVs, handsets and memory chips -- are all likely to see improvements.
