Even after setting a record high profit, Samsung Electronics disappointed investors who increasingly doubt its mainstay smartphone business can maintain rapid growth. Samsung Electronics Co. on Friday estimated its April-June operating profit at a record high of 9.5 trillion won ($8.3 billion). But it fell short of forecasts by analysts who held higher expectation for the world's largest smartphone maker. (AP Photo/Lee Jin-man)
