Sony reportedly producing millions fewer PS5 consoles than expected

The tech gaints company has got manufacturing issues

Sony has reduced it expectations for PlayStation 5 production by four million units and now expects to manufacture about 11 million units come March ending, according to a new Bloomberg report.

Bloomberg had initially reported that Sony was aiming to boost production to around 10 million units by the end of December, but now says that the company is now encountering manufacturing problems.

The PS5’s system-on-a-chip, its core processing component designed with AMD, is said to be a particular issue with yields as low as 50 percent at one point, meaning that half the parts produced weren’t fit to ship. While that figure has been improving, according to Bloomberg, the yields are “yet to reach a stable level.”

The related figure is still well above what Sony had aimed to have been originally planning for the PS5 launch. As of this April, Sony was reportedly expecting to produce five to six million consoles by the end of March, fewer than it released for the PS4 launch in 2013. The COVID-19 pandemic, however, caused the company to sharply increase its forecasts as the gaming industry boomed in popularity.

Meanwhile, Sony will be holding an online PS5 event on Wednesday where it is likely to reveal the final price and offer date for the console, which comes in two variants: one with a disc drive and one without. Till pricing details are confirmed, it’ll be hard to speculate on whether Sony will have enough supply to meet increasing demands.

A Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra is the newest smartphone to be tested by the team in DxOMark and has earned a 121 ranking. This positions it in the 10th position behind the Galaxy S20 Ultra in a global Smartphone Photography List.

While it can be used with a compact camera configuration, there are several noticeable drawbacks, including erratic zooming, low-light noise and autofocus hiccups.

On the Note20 Ultra, the hardware is very familiar with a 108 MP-resolution main 1/1.33 “sensor which releases 12MP, much like the Galaxy S20 Ultra. It is combined with a 12MP telephoto device with a full range of 120 mm and 12MPs.

With its good replication, precision exposed and fast autofocusation, the Dxome Mark team noted excellent large and ultra-wide performance.

Even high-end portrait photography, the performance from the S20 Ultra almost matched. With a noticeable lack of clarity at the 4x-zoom point, the effect of the telephoto lens did not excit. The night shots were strong and held decently in colour, and detail.

Video capture is best in a resolution of 4 K and 30 FPS, although the performances of Galaxy Note 20 marginally behind other flagships such as the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

The same issues is occurring in California, with a federal judge issuing a preliminary injunction blocking the ban of WeChat – another platform, owned by a Chinese conglomerate Tencent. According to TikTok, the restrictions “are not motivated by a genuine national security concern” but are rather being used as a bargaining chip in the upcoming general elections.

Last Saturday several sort of delay to the ban came up after “positive developments” – Walmart and Oracle reportedly will join hands in purchasing a minor stake in TikTok Global – a new subsidiary by ByteDance that is supposedly going to make TikTok a platform for influencers and brands to promote products while doing their silly dances.
