Sony’s mid-range Xperia XA, XA Ultra and L models are about to get a refresh, and unfortunately it appears to be more of the same. The company’s design language has stagnated for what seems like an eternity, while the rest of the market has moved on with modern, cutting edge devices. Companies like LG and Huawei offer better designs with smaller bezels and 18:9 displays for around $200, and Sony is hardly a rookie in the smartphone space. It’s possible we’ll see an official debut at CES next week in Las Vegas, but it could wait until Mobile World Congress (MWC) in late February. In any event, here’s what we know so far.

Amazon and Google were extremely aggressive with their small smart speakers this holiday season, cutting the price on both the Echo Dot and Google Home Mini to just $29 for months. That was down from a $50 price point on both units before Q4.
That move was great for customers, and I’m sure both Google and Amazon sold a ton of units to holiday shoppers, but analysts have one problem with it; both companies probably lost some money selling them so cheaply.
LG is reportedly working on a major rebranding of their smartphones, and one casualty of that might be the G naming scheme. In fact, the LG G6 might be the last G branded phone we see, as this change will supposedly happen starting this year.

Companies either get specifications directly from the manufacturer or make guesses based on info that the public doesn’t have, and when those product listings go up early the whole world gets to see what a phone will look that.
That’s something not even Samsung can get away from.

His Kickstarter page has already surpassed its $30,000 goal with almost $50,000 and there’s over two weeks left. Can Duval succeed where well established companies like Firefox have failed?
