Xperia smartphones will bring Sony a profit for the first time in 4 years
Many have already stopped following Sony’s mobile business news. However, Sony itself believes in a renaissance and is heading towards cost optimization and trying to build a new team.
During its last report on the results of the second quarter of this year, the company announced the delivery of 800 thousand Xperia smartphones. This is 100 thousand less than a year earlier, but twice as much as in the first quarter of 2020. Given the market crisis and falling demand amid the coronavirus pandemic, Sony’s result can be considered a success.
Encouraged by what is happening, the company said that the company’s mobile business will bring profit for the first time in four years based on the results of operations from April 2020 to March 2021. Of the interesting things, it is worth noting that the company associates its short-term future with budget and mid-range smartphones.
