Sony Corp on Thursday reported a 39 percent rise in first-quarter profit, beating analyst estimates, helped by strong sales of smartphone camera sensors and PlayStation4 videogames.

Sony said April-June operating profit rose to 96.9 billion yen ($780.8 million) from 69.8 billion yen a year earlier. That compared with the 73.3 billion average estimate of 18 analysts, Thomson Reuters data showed.
