Sony To Launch New Smartphone Factory in Thailand


Sony Mobile has planned to launch a new smartphone factory in Thailand which is to be the first plant that will only be dedicated to mobile business in 20 years. The factory will consist of a start-to-finish production system that will make a smartphone through o assembly. Production of the Xperia devices on this plant will be started in January 2016 which will produce about several million units of Xperia smartphones per year.

According to a report of Nikkei, the initial investment is about several billion yen. The production site is an existing site in Pathum Thani Province that was suspended since the 2011 floods in the region.

As Sony is launching a new production plant, we can assume that Sony has no plans to give up on mobiles just yet.
