The Sony Xperia Z3 went surprisingly missing from T-Mobile’s online store recently. We figured that the smartphone was gone for good. But it’s clearly not the case as the 2014 Sony flagship has now made a comeback on the carrier’s site. Read more
Starting next month, Sony will launch some of the hardware introduced at CES 2015 as being compatible with Google Cast for Audio. The company has six devices that will be released between May and July. There are four sound bars ($349-$1,499) and two A/V receivers ($499-$599) for consumers to choose from. Aside from Google Cast support, these devices have Bluetooth and 7.2 channel audio. Both the online Sony store and authorized dealers in the United States will sell the devices.
Some leaked internal press renders have surfaced today, allegedly showcasing the design of the long-awaited Xperia Z3 Neo. However, we can’t actually be certain that handset in these shots is the device the leaker specified as one of the images is annotated with the text “Xperia Z The Fourth Generation” — so it could, in fact, be a variant of the recently-announced Xperia Z4.
Hit the break to see the smartphone in all its glory.
While we wait for April 20th to roll around to see whether Sony goes ahead and officially announces the Sony Xperia Z4 smartphone, a new rumor has surfaced with some new details about the device. According to sources, the Z4 will join the ranks of devices constructed of an all-metal body. If true, it is not clear what Sony will do for the back cover as the Z series of devices have had a glass back that Sony developed. Read more
We have seen a number of Xperia Z4 leaks so an announcement has to be immanent right? Well apparently it will be announced in Japan on April 20.
The Xperia Z4 will look much like the Xperia Z3 and is rumored to sport a 5.2-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) or Quad HD display (2560 x 1440) display, an octa-core Snapdragon 810, 4 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of storage, microSD slot for expanded storage, 20.7 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, and Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The Xperia Z4 continues to leak like a sieve. Today we have a press render, which really doesn’t reveal all that much more than what we have seen from previous leaks. However, if you’re a Sony Xperia fan, this just might get your blood pumping.
I am still wondering when Sony will announce this phone. There are no major events until IFA, which is in September. Sony traditionally likes to announce their mobile devices at these types of events. Could they host a special event on their own for the Z4?
Sony has just started pushing out the long-awaited Lollipop update to all unlocked variants of the Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet located in the United States. This upgrade brings the latest build of the Android operating system to the devices, in addition to a truckload of bug fixes and stability improvements.
Hit the break for the full changelog.
T-Mobile has discontinued sales of its Sony Xperia Z3 device with just under 6 months of being released. While it may be stunning to hear at first, it’s not much of a surprise to most if one were to really think about it. It’s no secret that Sony’s mobile phone division is well behind its competitors (Samsung, HTC, LG, Apple) and with lackluster sales of its Z3, T-Mobile has no other choice but to yank the device from its shelves.
