SK Hynix Q3 profit tumbles on further decline in prices of smartphone chips

SEOUL, Oct 24 (Reuters) - South Korean chipmaker SK Hynix Inc posted its smallest quarterly profit in three years with a fall of 93% in July-September on the year, as the prices of memory chips for smartphones declined further.
