The news of Sony’s mobile business has closed a lot. However, Sony itself believes in a renaissance and is moving towards cost optimization and is trying to build a new team.
The company announced during its latest report on the results for the second quarter of this year, the delivery of 800,000 Xperia smartphones. This is 100,000 less than the previous year, but twice it was in the first quarter of 2020. Given the drop in demand amid the market crisis and the coronavirus epidemic, Sony’s results can be considered successful.
