In a recent company statement, cited by Reuters, Sony confirmed that it will be closing its factory in Beijing in the coming days. It will move its production to Thailand instead.

The move comes in an attempt to make the Sony smartphone business profitable in 2020. Shifting production to Thailand, according to the spokesperson, is expected to reduce costs by 50 percent.
