Sony's Q2 2019 phone shipments lowest in almost a decade

The Sony Xperia 1 smartphone.

Sony's mobile business hit a record low in Q2 2019 base on its latest financial report. 

In the April - June period, Sony shipped only 900,000 phones which is the lowest in the past 9 years. In comparison, the company shipped two million units in the same period last year. It also pales in comparison to Q2 2014 when it shipped 9.4 million units. 

The company estimates that the mobile business would only bring in US$3.55 million in revenue, which is 7% below its initial projection. Looking ahead, it is expected to ship 4 million phones by the end of the year. It is betting on the Xperia 1 smartphone to bring in more sales in the second half of the year.
