Sony might be sticking with Snapdragon 810 for Xperia Z5

Sony might be sticking with Snapdragon 810 for Xperia Z5

Qualcomm might have found a staunch and loyal friend in Sony. If it hasn't yet, it should. Despite all the flak it received precisely because of the Snapdragon 810 processor, it seems that Sony isn't about to jump ship. At least not for some upcoming smartphones. User Agent profiles of two device lines, particularly a certain E6603 and E5803, believed to be the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact respectively, show evidence that those two will run on the almost ill-fated chip, which is bound not to sit well with those hoping for better Sony flagship before the year ends.

Sony’s new My Xperia Theft Protection digs deep

Sony’s new My Xperia Theft Protection digs deep

Smartphone theft is a never ending problem and manufacturers and carriers are always scrambling to implement the best solution to both solve it as well as prevent it in the first place. Both iOS and Android have varying solutions, but, in the case of the latter, most of it is moot once the device has been subjected to flashing. Sony's new anti-theft feature, similar to Android 5.1's Device Protection, tries to plug up that hole, making it impossible to use a stolen device without the proper credentials, even after it has been wiped clean.

Sony announces Xperia Z3+ as new flagship

Well, it seems the "plus" naming convention is here to stay, folks. Oppo recently debuted its R7 Plus in China, and now it's Sony's turn. The company has just announced the Xperia Z3+, the international release of the Xperia Z4, its name in the Japanese market. While it may not look much different from last year's Z3, there is more than enough in this update to qualify it for this year's flagship. It's currently scheduled for release sometime this summer, however Sony hasn't confirmed final pricing yet.

Xperia C4 and C4 Dual PROselfie smartphones rock 25mm wide-angle front lens

Sony Xperia E4g revealed in black and white

This week Sony has revealed their newest Xperia smartphone - and it's not a Z4. This device will be aimed at markets where low-price smartphones are taking over. Preparing to take this market with a smartphone that both looks and acts the part of a high-end smartphone, Sony is releasing the Sony Xperia E4g this April. There will be a single-SIM version and a dual-SIM version available this Spring in several regions throughout the world - except in the United States, of course.

Sony throwing in the towel on phones and TVs

Sony throwing in the towel on phones and TVs

Sony's appetite for struggling through the cutthroat smartphone and TV segments may have finally faded, with the company's chief exec saying he will no longer chase sales growth, and is open to spinning-off each. The admission of near-defeat comes as CEO Kazuo Hirai outlined his new focus for the next three years, concentrating on PlayStation and camera sensor development rather than segments like phones which have been attacked at either end of the market, both by cheap rivals from Asia, and from more high-end competition from Apple and Samsung.

Sony’s Xperia E4 available for UK pre-orders

When it was announced, Sony’s Xperia E4 wasn’t quite what we were expecting from Sony. After announcing they’d be dedicating themselves to flagship offerings, a decidedly mid-range phone was a shock to the system. Still, the E4 will find favor with many smartphone users, and the low price point might have Sony’s latest in more hands than their flagship Xperia devices. With big promises like two-day battery life and a pretty respectable spec sheet, UK fans can now pre-order an Xperia E4 via Clove.

Sony Xperia E4 promises 2-day battery life at budget price

Sony Xperia E4 promises 2-day battery life at budget price

Barely half a year has passed since Sony announced the Xperia E3 at IFA 2014. Now it is augmenting its budget smartphone line with the new Xperia E4. Like its predecessor, it promises to give as much of the Sony Xperia experience that it can at price point. This includes a 2,300 mAh battery promised to last 2 days, the distinct Xperia design, as well as customization options. One rather peculiar thing about the Xperia E4 is that Sony has opted to go with a MediaTek CPU this time around.

Sony’s impressive earnings still sour for mobile division

Sony’s impressive earnings still sour for mobile division

Sony’s latest earnings report wasn’t bad news, as you might have expected. In fact, it was their best earnings announcement in quite some time, even with the crippling hack, which cost them $15 million. Across the board, Sony was up, and shipped more Xperia smartphones than they ever have, and moved a lot of PlayStation 4s. Sony also experienced growth in sales of sensors. Still, Sony is primed to lay off several thousand by the end the financial year, which closes in March.
