Sony Sensors Make Record Profit

Sony has posted a record first-quarter operating profit, despite the slowing gaming business, and on the back of strong demand for multiple-lens camera systems used for smartphone systems.

“Our image sensor sales have been growing independently of the smartphone market growth” thanks to smartphone makers’ adoption of multiple-lens cameras and large-size image sensors, CFO Hiroki Totoki told an earnings briefing. “Our production facilities have been operating at full capacity.”

The electronics outfit posted an operating profit of 230.93 billion yen (A$3.05 billion) for the April-June quarter, up 18.4% from a year earlier.
