Xperia X Performance coming to the UK after all

Fans of the Sony Xperia line of smartphones weren't happy back in February when we heard that the Xperia XA might not come to the States and the Xperia X Performance might not come to the UK and Germany.

Sony Xperia embraces smart devices, debuts Eye, Projector, Agent

Sony Xperia embraces smart devices, debuts Eye, Projector, Agent

MWC 2016 will perhaps be remembered as the day when Sony redefined the Xperia brand. A name that was once synonymous with smartphones is now being used to include a new class of devices with nothing really in common except for the fact that they are all meant to be "personalized and intelligent" devices. The Xperia Ear, which launches is summer, is the first of this breed. But Sony has a couple more devices and ideas up its sleeves, including an Xperia Eye "lifelogging" camera, an Xperia Projector, and an Xperia Agent home assistant.

Sony reveals a new Xperia X series, promised to be smarter

Sony is doing a bit of a re-imagining with its Xperia brand in an attempt to find a new calling in the saturated mobile market. That calling has come through a new "personalized and intelligent" slogan that is being realized, among other things, in a couple of new smart accessories, like the new Xperia Ear in-ear Bluetooth earbuds. That's not to say, however, that Sony doesn't have a new smartphone to go along with it. In fact, it has three! With the Xperia X, the Xperia X Performance, and the Xperia XA, Sony is promising a smartphone that is even smarter than your usual smartphone.

Sony Xperia Ear: the first in new breed of intelligent devices

Sony Xperia Ear: the first in new breed of intelligent devices

Sony's Xperia brand has been, for quite a few years now, synonymous with mobile devices. But smartphones, and especially tablets, are no longer the hottest craze in the market, something that Sony is feeling especially in its coffers. To adapt to the times, Sony is "re-imagining" the Xperia brand to embrace more types of devices. In particular, devices that exude intelligence and deliver personalized experiences. In other words, more smart devices, starting with the Xperia Ear, which Sony promises is more than just an in-ear Bluetooth headset.

Sony now said to release two Xperia Z6 models in 2016

Sony now said to release two Xperia Z6 models in 2016

The last few years have troublesome for Sony's division, but we know they're not quite ready to throw in the towel on smartphones just yet. It seems the Japanese company is planning to debut a Xperia Z6 next year, but the rest is still unknown. Just over a week ago the latest rumors were about Sony's next flagship seeing five different variants. Sony many have come to its senses that five was a bit too much, or the rumored number of models was exaggerated, because now we're hearing word that it's been reduced to just two.

Sony now backtracking on phones’ underwater prowess

Sony now backtracking on phones’ underwater prowess

Sony's smartphones have traditionally centered upon three or four key strengths: the OmniBalance design, two-day battery life, high-quality camera sensor, and waterproof rating. Two of those, design and camera, have now been challenged, even refuted, and now it seems that Sony itself is trying to debunk another one. The Japanese OEM has updated the wording on some of its support pages to warn users not to use their smartphones underwater, despite their top IP68 dust and waterproof rating, conflicting with their own previous marketing campaigns.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium hands-on with 4K display

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium hands-on with 4K display

Today we're having a look at the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium with 4K display, deciding whether or not it makes sense to go this far with sharpness on a mobile display. This device has a 5.5-inch display panel, meaning you'll have 806 pixels per inch - far more than is discernible by the human eye. We'll have to try this device out for an extended period of time before we decide whether or not it'll be worth the "Premium" price it'll cost.

Xperia Z5 render leak hints “greater focus” is 23MP camera

Xperia Z5 render leak hints “greater focus” is 23MP camera

When it comes to Sony's IFA 2015 event in a few days, you might be in either of two camps (not counting those who don't care). Either you're waiting with interest to see if the Japanese OEM has anything left to offer the mobile world, or you're no longer interested because you think it doesn't have a prayer. If this leak of press render images is to be taken at face value, the latter camp may have reason for their indifference, revealing nothing notable other than a higher camera sensor.

Sony teases an Xperia with greater focus, not a greater Xperia

Sony teases an Xperia with greater focus, not a greater Xperia

It's IFA time soon, and naturally, almost anyone and everyone in the tech industry are ready to make a splash. Including Sony. But if you were perhaps hoping for some redeeming smartphone, it might be time to rein in those expectations. Sony's UK Twitter account just teased something for its pre-IFA 2015 event, hinting at a smarpthone with a better focus, presumably a better camera. It is, however, sadly silent on whether we can also expect a better Xperia smartphone to go along with that.
