Sony sells 10 million Xperia smartphones in three months to September 2013

in News


Sony-logoSony has released its fiscal Q2 results for the three months to 30 September 2013 confirming that it has sold 10 million Xperia smartphones during that period.  This compares to 9.6 million smartphones sold in the previous quarter (Q1 2013) and 8.8 phones during the same period last year (Q2 2012).

The overall forecast for smartphone units in FY13 remains unchanged at 42 million, however Sony cut its Group profit forecast by 40% from 50 billion yen to 40 billion yen citing challenges in its film, camera and PC divisions. Sony expects to continue targeting the premium smartphone category as it confirmed that the Xperia Z held a top three position in terms of revenue in over 20 countries. No indication of Xperia Z1 sales were given as it falls outside the quarter.

  • Martin Ambre

  • ZeldaWW

  • srinu

  • Anzilleo Kristello Mozihim

    So?

  • Chetan Reddy

    you are after all a paid troll and commenting on a big mnc ..ridiculous …..l

  • Madhu PV

    so what ? :P

  • Sand

    Thats is what Sony want: Sell. They should change their strategy and start thinking in release good products, good software and with good suport first. Customer satisfaction first Sony plz!

  • Sand

    Agreed. More quality first!!

  • Makozak

    Less phones ? They only made 11 (including the XZ Tab), while Samsung, make only one or two good phones, and 100 phones crap phones and they’re the number one sellers
    So please, stop saying Sony have many phones

  • Ethan ‘blaze’ Parker

    Crap sells faster. :p

  • Micro

    yeah, mostly to the service centers so they can replace this unrepairable shit

  • osin17

    I didn’t said that, it’s just frustrating that only after buying Xperia Z (when it was released) they announced the Z ultra and the Z1.
    There’s not really flagship phone. So at the end, I’m tired to buy “best of Sony” because it just the best for 3 months

  • Rizky Maulana

    Shut up and bought Z1 !!!

  • Rizky Maulana

    E, E dual, Z, ZL, SP, L, ZR, M, M dual, Z Ultra, C, Z1, Z1s, Tablet Z.

    14, u fools :v

  • Anzilleo Kristello Mozihim

    That how Japan works.

  • Micro

    you have Z “best of Sony” and I have Z1 “best got even better” :P

    come on mate, I was like “I’d rather wait for Honami” where everyone was getting Z, it’s a choice that we have only because of this “getting better” thing. And it wasn’t 3 months… I waited much longer for Z1. You had your while to have the best, now time for the others ;P

    As you see dude, the same thing that frustrates you, actually made me very happy. Like I would never buy Z, I would do everything to get Z1 again if I loose it ;P

  • stev21

    i just bought my xperia z just 2 months ago..so i think i’ll wait for z2..it’s not that i don’t like z1..it’s gorgeous…i just don’t have the money to buy every flagship that sony offered..

  • stev21

    yeah..samsung sells 1 million cheap plastic galaxy soap smartphones daily with so many lags..samsung build quality and ui sucks..its just because of marketing gimmicks thats y samsung sells those numbers..

  • samsungsucks

    because many people don’t have design aesthetics..like you..

  • PIPI

    and I have xperia S “worst of Sony” xD

  • roeshak

    I still maintain that the Z is the best thing Sony released this year. Z1 is just too flipping ugly.
    The Z truly is the Phoenix that rose from the ashes of near universal criticism.
    HTC take note, tech blogs and their opinions don’t mean shit.
    I guess the morale of the story is don’t put all your eggs in the tech blog basket lol!

  • rexperia

    get your fucking yourself out of here!!!!! you’re uninvited here… so ignorant person, you know what….. i may say that you are people with no point of view, blinded by the quantity… pathetic…

  • rexperia

    are you blind or something? one of the stupidest person in the world….

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    At least Sony Sells is wht Satisfactory to customer…. So all in all Sony’s 10 million Customer are more satisfied than Samsung’s 1m per day Customers !!!!

  • fafasfas

    the z1 is too big i dont know how people buy it

  • AsakuraZero

    got the Z1 love it (except the shatter proff layer, got some minor scratches too fast), i come frome the crapsung S4 the dimesions are mostly the same.

    S4 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm (5.38 x 2.75 x 0.31 in)
    130 g (4.59 oz)

    Z1 144 x 74 x 8.5 mm (5.67 x 2.91 x 0.33 in)
    170 g (6.00 oz)

    i feel no difference honestly, 5 or 8 mm for water proffing and 3000mah battery is a trade off i can afford, plus the unibody and aluminium.

  • x-periance

    That the different between retail product and premium product. Does LV sold 1million handbags daily to gets high class status?? Lol….

  • Micro

    nah.. tell this to IONers ;P the S is perfect ;P (I still love mine, NFC, HD Bravia, FullHD video camera, OTG, Wi-Fi Direct, insane storage… the design.. come on ;P very unique phone anyway, admit it ;] )

  • heng

    How many Xperia Z1 has been sold,while note 3 is 5 million?

  • Micro

    cheap meat is for dogs, humans deserve quality, not quantity haha ;D

  • heng

    I just want to know how many Xperia Z1 has been sold? Not I like Samsung.

  • Chetan Reddy

    So true ..check the user ratings in gsmarena ..top 4 are sony xperias

  • lunkz

    The Z1 is just a reversion of Z like Arc and Arc S.
    Yeah I know it has some other hardware…

  • Micro

    Above the pictures:
    “No indication of Xperia Z1 sales were given as it falls outside the quarter.”
    A lot ;]

  • hans

    Glad to report that i just gave Sony a cheer up with my new Z Ultra :D hoping the best for Sony in Q3-Q4! :)

  • ryq24

    1 million is good but how many of those are making money for samsung. We all know the cheaper the phone the smaller the profit margins are. That’s why Samsung sold more phones than Apple but profit wise, apple earn more. It’s quality over quantity that’s more important now.

  • ryq24

    I think It was too late to include the sale of Z1 in this report.

    I knew Sony could do it.

    Hey… Xperia s had the best design. Put quad core, 2gb ram , 20.7mp g lens , sd card slot wallah… Xperia s will selling more then s4… :-)

  • hans

    Really? i thought the Z1 is more comfortable to hold than the Z because of it’s rounded bezel. I love the Z1 more actually, despite the bigger size but it is more friendly to the hand. :) but still because of the price i picked the Z Ultra lol

  • jxPerience

    this report is from apr – june sales of smartphones so in 2nd quarter they sold 10 millions xperias but where is the report for 3q? jul to sep 2013?

  • Babylonbwoy

    Wow Sony is not doing well :

    “The stock slumped 11 percent in Tokyo trading, the biggest drop in five years, after Hirai slashed his full-year net income projection by 40 percent to 30 billion yen ($305 million). Sony also unexpectedly posted a second-quarter loss, missing analyst estimates for a return to profit.”

  • Cola Bear

    Sony should change their strategy,
    – release Xperia S series (4.3″ music phone), Xperia Q series (4.3″ Slime slide out QWERTY keyboard) and Xperia L series (4″ Entry Level Phone) in Q1
    – release phablet phone (like Xperia Z Ultra) in Q2
    – release flagship phone “Xperia Z series” (5″ camera phone with OneSony fuctions) and High-End tablet “Xperia Pad” in Q4

  • Mikko

    That’s nice, but why is Sony now pissing in everyone’s cereals by suing Google and fellow Android handset manufacturers for patent infringement? Sony is a member in the Rockstar consortium that has filed a slew of lawsuits in Texas. See

    http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2013/10/patent-war-goes-nuclear-microsoft-apple-owned-rockstar-sues-google/

    My next phone will definitely not be a Sony if the company does not distance itself from this crap.

  • Babylonbwoy

    Business as usual, do you think Google is an ethic company ? They’re all the same about money and datas.
    I think that sooner or later consumers will be tired of this shit.

  • hongki

    Waiting for Z1 ultra :)

  • em-em

    And I got the most expensive phone of sony! Z ultra and waiting for Z1 ultra
