SEOUL -- Samsung Electronics on Thursday said operating profit likely rose 11.4% in the second quarter from a year earlier, mostly shrugging off a host of challenges, including global supply chain bottlenecks and intensifying competition in semiconductors.

Samsung sees operating profit at 14 trillion won ($10.7 billion), an increase of 11.4% from the same period last year. It also said revenue is forecast to have reached 77 trillion won, up 20.9%.
