Xperia Z3+ expected to boost Sony smartphone sales in Taiwan

The Xperia Z3+ (also known as the Xperia Z4 in some regions — Japan), which we’re currently dissecting in our review labs, is expected to boost Sony smartphone sales in Taiwan, according to “industry source” cited by DigiTimes. Sony is already reportedly holding 25 percent share of Taiwan’s high-end Android smartphone market, and this number is expected to grow thanks to the local launch of the Xperia Z3+, as well as the Xperia M4 Aqua Dual.

Jonathan Lin, general manager of Sony Mobile Taiwan, expects the availability of the 2015 flaship to slingshot Sony to a comfortable 40 percent of the high-end Android segment in 2015 for the market.

While many have criticized Sony (for releasing a phone with two different names, for recycling an already “old” design, for opting for a questionable Snapdragon 810 processor, etc.), the Japanese smartphone maker’s latest and greatest — with its IP65/68 rating — is right there with other companies’ flagship models, in the top list for smartphones to buy this summer.
