Samsung has forecast record third quarter profits of £4.5bn led by huge demand for its Galaxy series of smartphones including the Galaxy S3.
Samsung amended its forecasts on Friday, reporting that it expects £4.5bn in profits for the quarter to September, double the figure it took during the same period last year.
Despite the positive forecasts, Samsung's ability to continue to boast such high profits may depend on its ability to maintain availability of its handsets in certain territories.
Competitor Apple has mounted multiple legal cases seeking sales bans on a slew of Samsung products.
The company's popular Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note smartphones are two of many Samsung products Apple wants banned.
Other devices listed in the request include the Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 AT&T model, Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Galaxy S2 T-Mobile model, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge and Galaxy Prevail.
Apple and Samsung's legal battle began in the US in 2011 after Apple accused Samsung of "slavishly copying" Apple iPad designs with its Galaxy tablets.
Samsung subsequently responded to the accusation with its own raft of patent infringement claims.
Samsung and Apple's patent war has since escalated and gone global, with the two currently embroiled in 50 patent lawsuits across 10 countries.
The threat of a sales ban has not currently affected sales of Samsung's flagship Galaxy S3 handset. Samsung confirmed earlier in September that the Galaxy S3 had passed the 20 million sales milestone within 100 days of its release.
