Even Japanese OEM Sony is now trying to cater to the selfie-loving crowd. With a 5 megapixel front camera complete with soft LED flash, the Xperia C3 is being poised as the best selfie smartphone. While that may arguably be true, in almost everything else, the mobile device falls rather flat.
It has just been revealed that Sony will be launching the Xperia Z2a "mini" premium smartphone in Taiwan tomorrow. But along with that is word that the company will also be revealing a new smartphone headed for international markets. And this time the mysterious device's defining feature will be its selfie-friendly front camera.
Adding to this week's Sony leak, we are now getting what are supposedly the specs for a certain D580x, allegedly the model name for the Sony Xperia Z3 compact. Not the regular one, but the mini variant. Those specs include a Snapdragon 801 and a handy 720p display, details you would commonly hear on high-end specs.
Sony made waves recently, posting an image to their Google+ page (seen below) showing an Xperia Z2, branded with a Verizon logo. An Xperia Z2 with Verizon would give Sony a much needed inroad to the US market, but it just isn’t happening. Sony has yanked the picture, and issued a response about the whole kerfuffle.
The United States of America will have their first up-close look at the Sony XPERIA X2 Tablet starting this week. This device was shown earlier this year at Mobile World Congress 2014 where we got our own full hands-on experience. The Wi-fi version of the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet will be launching in the USA first.
