Mobile phone camera lens supplier Largan Precision Co (大立光) yesterday said its revenue might increase this quarter from a year earlier, bolstered by the increasing adoption of dual cameras in smartphones.
“Revenue for this month and next could outpace that of the same period last year due to the rising demand for dual cameras,” Largan chief executive officer Adam Lin (林恩平) told a teleconference, without offering a range of estimated growth.
He added that the company’s plants would continue to run at full capacity this quarter.
The construction of a new plant in Taichung is scheduled to be completed next quarter and could become operational in the third quarter at the earliest, helping to ease a capacity constraint, he said. [FULL STORY]
