Sony is very profitable, but the mobile department has quarters. The company delivered 6.5 million smartphones in 2018, less than 13.5 million copies in 2017. In other words, the shipments were dropped by half.
Mobile operations lost 3.5 billion SEK in the last quarter. Loss during the year amounted to 8.3 million euros. One month ago, Nikkei claimed that Sony could become a 2020 coefficient for smart phones, and according to Xperia Blog, Sony Mobile will leave several regions, such as South America and the Middle East.
Sony Mobile has ratified the Middle East, as well as in parts of Central and South America 🙁
