SEOUL, April 26 (Yonhap) -- Samsung Electronics Co., the world's top maker of computer memory chips and smartphones, said Friday its first-quarter profit spiked 16.8 percent from a year earlier, buoyed by robust shipments of its flagship Galaxy S3 handsets and higher chip prices.

Net profit came to 7.15 trillion won (US$6.44 billion) in the January-March period, compared with 5.05 trillion won a year earlier, the company said in a regulatory filing.
