If you have, a smartphone that you need to get more runtime out of, Mugen Power is a good place to look. The company makes extended run time batteries and other gear for smartphones to help them last longer away from an outlet. The latest product from the company is the Mugen Power 3000mAh battery case for the Sony Xperia Z1 smartphone.
To say that Sony is participating in the current “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it” trend would be an understatement if you’ve been keeping track of their hero Xperia smartphone lineup. In the Xperia Z1S, we’ve got essentially the same build as in the internationally-aimed Xperia Z1, here coming to T-Mobile with the carrier’s Uncarrier plans attached, and just as much power as the original. In other words - if you liked the Xperia Z and were looking forward to the just that-much-better Xperia Z1 “Honami”, this is your winning ticket.
In the announcement of the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact, the company made a rather pointed suggestion - our best doesn't have to be our biggest. Working specifications that closely match those of the Sony Xperia Z1, this miniature device works with high-end processing power and a 20+ megapixel camera. Right next to the Xperia Z1, the Xperia Z1 Compact also looks like it's working with a display that's just as brilliant - as you'll see below.
Sony and T-Mobile have announced the Xperia Z1S, the US carrier's version of the Xperia Z1 that debuted in Europe back at IFA in September 2013. The 5-inch Full HD touchscreen is kept, of course, as is the 2.2GHz quadcore Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of memory, and - as we found here at CES 2014 - you can still dunk it in water and expect it to work.
Word has it that Sony is preparing a media event in Shanghai next month, something that is expected to be the unveiling point for two new Xperia handsets, the Xperia Z1S and the Xperia Tianchi. Though nothing is official yet, the phones are likely heading to China first, after which point their other destinations -- if any are planned -- are unknown. More information will likely surface in the coming weeks, but until then, we have some specs on both phones after the jump.
This week the folks at Sony have made clear their intent to bring both the massive Xperia Z Ultra and the next-generation Xperia Z1 to the United States. Both of these devices work with high-powered processors and Full HD displays, while neither of them have been guaranteed for carrier subsidies. Both devices will be available unlocked and off-contract in the USA starting immediately.
Sony has officially unveiled its latest smartphone that is headed to the NTT DoCoMo network in Japan. The smartphone is called the Xperia Z1 f SO-02F and it has already been nicknamed Honami mini. This is the smartphone that leaked late last month via an image that turned up online. That leak had a number of specifications tipping what the phone would have under the cover.
An image has leaked online that claims to show the Sony Xperia Z1 mini or Zperia Z1 f smartphone also called the Honami mini. The phone carries model number SO-02F and the little image shows that four colors will be available at launch. The colors include black, white, red, and green.
Sony's Xperia range of Android phones has been on a roll of late, with the Xperia Z proving a sleeper hit to rival the Galaxy S 4, and the Zperia Z Ultra putting the company's big screen display expertise to work. Now there's the Sony Xperia Z1, still waterproof but with a sleek metal casing rather than the polycarbonate of its predecessors, and featuring a super-speedy 2.2GHz quadcore processor and whopping 20.7-megapixel camera. Fresh to IFA 2013 today, we spent some playtime with the Z1 Ultra to see if it's likely to be another hit.
It would appear that Sony's notoriously unlucky streak of leaking the ins and outs of the smartphone known as the Xperia Z1 have reached their height with no less than a full press release leak just one day before it's scheduled to go live. Straight from Xperia Blog comes this gush of information (the screenshot of which we'll not be sharing simply because it's the same info we're about to recount) including a Sony G Lens on the back of this smartphone with 27mm wide angle and bright F2.0 aperture. The camera on this device (on the back, again,) also works with a 1/2.3-inch 20.7MP Exmor RSCMOS image sensor - so you know you're going to be meaning business when this device is snapping shots.
