A few months ago Sony confirmed that the reason for not abandoning mobile telephony, or the most important of them, was the strategic importance of the telephony division in other areas where Sony wanted to be especially relevant, such as 5G.
Thus, the Japanese company decreased its product catalog and focused on countries where it was especially relevant, such as its native country.
Today we learn that the company has taken another step in this direction, and will stop launching high-end mobile phones without 5G.
The 5G will be in the best Sony phones
According to the Japanese medium Sumahoinfo, the Sony Xperia 5 will be the last high-end terminal of the company that launches without 5G connectivity.
This will be the case at least in the Japanese market , where as we say the networks are about to be deployed by companies such as NTT DoCoMo and there will be a greater demand for this type of products.
However, it is not unreasonable to think that the company only markets devices of this type in all markets where it has a presence since it is not in many countries where it was previously more important. Despite that, there is no official confirmation yet from the company, and we will have to wait until spring 2020 to see the company’s new top-of-the-range smartphones.
We will have to wait a few years to see how the manufacturer’s market share evolves and how they are introduced in new markets, such as 5G, home automation or smart cities, if they want to cover their market exit, in practice. of smartphones.
