Smartphone lens maker Largan Precision Co (大立光) is to proceed with its expansion plans, despite slowing growth in the global market, Largan chief executive officer Adam Lin (林恩平) told a teleconference with investors yesterday.
The company’s added capacity would be filled as smartphone designs continue to trend toward triple-camera configurations, sustaining demand for lenses, Lin said.
Concurrently, the company’s leading-edge seven-piece lenses began shipping at the end of last year, with many of them being used in triple-camera configurations, he said.
The company would refrain from taking orders with subpar profitability to fill expanded capacity, instead looking for viable opportunities in other high-end applications such as 3D sensing and in-display fingerprint sensing, he said.
“We are not concerned about price erosion,” Lin said. [FULL STORY]
