Samsung vice-president for memory product marketing Kim Il-ung made the comment during an interview with reporters.
The world's largest computer memory chip maker on Friday posted a second-quarter net profit of 880 billion won ($675.8 million).
That was above analysts' forecasts but down from 1.24 trillion in the first quarter.
Sales in the second quarter fell to eight trillion won, down seven percent.
Samsung shares closed down 1,000 won at 176,000 but outperformed a 1.47 percent slide in the benchmark index.
