Sony’s smartphone division pulled in a profit with 12 million sales

30 sec read

With all this talk about how poorly Sony’s handest division is doing it may come as a surprise that the company managed to sell more than 12 million smartphones last quarter compared to 8.8 million a year prior. While these are some impressive numbers, the measly $80 million quarterly profit shows us why the company wants to get rid of its handset division. 

Sony’s smartphone business logged an operating profit of $80 million last quarter, as it sold 12 million handsets by simplifying and refreshing its product lineup. Compared to 8.8 million sold in the same quarter a year before, or 9.9 billion during the summer quarter, Sony demonstrates good solid growth in the mobile department. Flagships like the Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact with their waterproof chassis and amazing battery life are proving to be a hit among consumers, and Sony managed to differentiate itself with waterproof midrangers, too.
