Sony To Outsource Up To 40% Of Phone Manufacturing?By cheatmaster 04:07 Thu, 15 Jul 2021 Comments
Sony is looking to ship more phones in 2013, according to DigiTimes, going from a projected 35 million to 50 million. To acquire the job done, the company plans to outsource some of the manufacturing to gigantic ODMs.
Foxconn has been manufacturing low-discontinue Sony phones since Q3 of this year. According to sources, Sony will add Arima and Compal to the list of makers early next year. Together, the three companies are expected to acquire orders for around 30-40% of the Xperia phones to be made in 2013.
As for what those ODMs might be making next year - the low-discontinue Sony Xperia E and E Duos leaked recently. There's also the Xperia Odin and Xperia Yuga to see forward to, but it's unclear if Sony will outsource the manufacturing of its high-discontinue models as well.
