Samsung achieving another milestone in the tech world is nothing new as it is evaluating itself as the biggest tech giants in almost every field of technology. But that also means defeating the older titans.
In 2017, Intel, which had the throne for being the largest chip maker company, has now been beaten by Samsung. Now this can be a pretty confusing news as we all know the fact that almost 90% of the chips in our computers are made by Intel. But the answer to that dilemma lies in one word, mobile phones.
Recently, Samsung has published their annual revenue statistic which are still above Intel.
Through the passing years, Intel ignored the growing attention towards the smart phone and Samsung, being the biggest smart phone brand didn’t miss the chance at all.
But if we talk about the figures, according to a well-known tech site
“Samsung’s entire business reported full-year profit of KRW 53.65 trillion ($50.7 billion) on revenue of KRW 239.58 trillion, $225 billion. For the final quarter of 2017, revenue was KRW 65.98 trillion ($62 billion) with KRW 15.15 trillion ($14 billion) in operating profit.”
