Sony Corp said on Thursday it has agreed to sell a portion of its battery business to Murata Manufacturing Co Ltd , as the electronics giant responds to slowing demand for smartphones. The announcement comes as Sony banks on growth in its games business with the upcoming launch of its virtual reality headset, while it also plans to re-enter the robotics industry a decade after it last abandoned that business. Sony, in a joint statement, said the agreement involved selling the battery business of its subsidiary Sony Energy Devices Corp, which makes lithium-ion polymer batteries used in smartphones, tablets and digital cameras, and lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.
