So, if there are 26 letters in the Alphabet, how many letters do you think Sony will use to market their phones? Well, a lot of them it seems. So far we’ve had the, Xperia S, U, P, T, TL and that’s all that I can think of, I’m sure there are more out there. Well, there are rumors doing the rounds that Sony are ready to hit the end of the Alphabet with their most recent handset that is pegged to launch next year. It had ought to launch next year as we’ve heard so many rumors surrounding this phone I’m sure any one of you out there could write up an advertisement for the device.
Nevertheless, the XperiaBlog has predicted that the upcoming leaked Yuga phone is to be called the Xperia Z, however this is not the only new detail that has come out surrounding the phone and that’s that the Xperia Z will also feature water and dust proofing to adhere to IP55 and IP57, as well as this the device is to come with “OptiContrast” tech that is found on some of the manufacturer’s TVs. This technology reduces the amount of on-screen reflections through the use of a special resin that coats the display. We wouldn’t be surprised if Sony’s Bravia tech came along for the ride, as it has done on other devices from the smartphone manufacturer.
The XperiaBlog accurately predicted that the “Hayabusa” phone from Sony was to be called the Xperia TX and it would make a lot of sense that Sony would keep naming their Xperia devices with a letter at the end of them, after all, they seem to have a lot more of them in the bag. From the sounds of it, we should be expecting a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro phone with a Full HD 1080p display all to be encased in glass.
I’m not sure about everyone else out there but, I’m really excited to see what Sony have to offer when they come to CES – 2012 was to be the year where Sony became a big brand in the smartphone market and it really hasn’t panned out like that. With few devices launching on U.S. soil and an apparent struggle to keep up with high-end specs, it’s not been a great year for the Japanese company.
Are you hoping for better from Sony?
