Sony tipped to have a 6-inch device in the making, wants to sell 38 million devices by April 2016
Despite the recently-circulating rumors that Sony might consider selling off its smartphone business, the Japan-based giant made it clear that it won't be leaving the smartphone market, much to the delight of all those that like its OmniBalance design language and all other features that make Sony smartphones stand out from the rest.
What's more, DiGiTimes reports that Sony is expecting to sell some 38 million devices in fiscal 2015, which is about to start on April 1 and end on March 31, 2016. This estimate is slightly lower than the 39.2 million units that the company sold in fiscal 2014 (which ends today). The reason for this is that Sony is still trying to revamp itself and focus more on mid-range to high-end devices. Until now, the focus was mainly towards entry-level to mid-range ones.
Interestingly, DiGiTimes mentions that Sony's largest contractors are already working on a 6-inch mobile device. A smaller successor to the Xperia Z Ultra behemoth, anyone?
Sony already unveiled four devices in 2015 - the Xperia E4, Xperia E4g, Xperia M4 Aqua, and the Xperia Z4 Tablet. Undoubtedly, we're all expecting the new flagship in the coming months - the specs of what might end up being the upcoming Xperia Z4 got caught in the wild yesterday, revealing us that the device will be an able-bodied performer.
