Not too long ago, there were only a trio of smartphone devices that come with support for Netflix’s HDR streaming feature -- namely LG’s G6 and V30 flagship handsets, as well as Sony’s Xperia XZ Premium.
Sony has taken the opportunity to formally introduce a couple of new additions to its expanding XZ lineup of smartphones -- the Xperia XZ1 and the Xperia XZ1 Compact. The latest from the Japanese phone maker should basically serve as upgraded versions of last year’s Xperia XZ and XZ Compact.
Recently this week, Sony unveiled their latest flagship smartphone in India. The device, called the Xperia XZ Premium, is the first to carry 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) display on its 5.5 inch screen. In addition to this, the smartphone is the first device to run Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor in India. Another notable feat for the Xperia XZ Premium is that it is the second device to support gigabit LTE next to Samsung’s Galaxy S8.
The annual Mobile World Congress is the world’s biggest conference for everything mobile, and this year’s event has brought another generous helping of new smartphones. Here are some of the handsets worth checking out.
The quality of cameras on mobile devices have taken a huge leap of improvement over the last decade or so. Indeed, smartphone cameras nowadays are so good that various filmmakers have already tried (and succeeded) in shooting movies using their own iPhone devices. And now thanks to a new technology from Sony, capturing video footage via one’s handsets will continue to get even better.
Sony has officially confirmed the pricing and availability details of its newest Xperia X smartphone offerings -- the Xperia XZ and the Xperia X Compact. For the full size Xperia XZ, it will be made available in the United States mobile market on October 2nd of this year at a suggested retail price of $700. As for the smaller Xperia X Compact, it will hit store shelves in America this coming September 25th at a price of $500.
Back in February early this year at the annual Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona, Spain, Sony took the opportunity to introduce three new devices, the Xperia X, the Xperia XA, and the Xperia X Performance, which make up a brand new family of Xperia devices. Sony has since unveiled a new addition, the Xperia XA Ultra, less than a month ago. Interested buyers might have been wondering when these Xperia X handsets will hit American shores.
Back in February, Sony spoke about its upcoming Xperia X smartphone lineup and how it would be focusing on its camera. Considering it has been a while since Sony has released a best selling smartphone, this would be something for its loyal fans to look forward to.
Sony has enjoyed strong brand recognition over the years, especially when people talk about television sets, home entertainment gadgets, and video game consoles (PlayStation). But when it comes to mobile devices, not many people know that the Japanese tech giant also makes and releases smartphone devices. Sony has grown to become a global brand in past decades, but in the United States smartphone market, Sony Mobile has painfully little presence amidst the Samsungs and Apples of the world. This year, the company is as committed as ever in remedying that.
