Samsung might be a group of companies, but all the electronic divisions (Mobile, TVs and Semiconductor etc) are all part of Samsung Eletronics (the worlds biggest eletronics company) which is the biggest company of the Samgsung Group (which is also the 2nd biggest biggest shipbuilder and one of the worlds largest construction companies)
