    삼성電 무슨 뜻이다? 오직 삼성회사와 관련하여 해명이다? 추가 의미가 없다?

    電 is an abbreviation for 電子 전자 (lit. electron), which appears in the Korean name of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., 삼성전자. Now it is clear that 삼성電 means Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.

    This kind of abbreviation often appears in news headlines.

    At first I thought 삼성電 was possibly interpreted as either 삼성전자 or 삼성전기 and then I ended up finding that 삼성電 is almost always related to 삼성전자 in the economic sections(often stock) of newspapers. It could also appear in news headlines as Kasumi said above.
