Sony announces mid-range Xperia XA2 Plus, with 18:9 display, Snapdragon 630, and Hi-Res Audio

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

At the start of the year, Sony unveiled two new mid-range smartphones in the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra. They offered familiar Sony stylings, with chunky bezels and squared off corners, but the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chips and rear fingerprint sensors represented a considerable improvement over their XA1 predecessors.

Today, Sony has announced another entry in the lineup, the Xperia XA2 Plus. It features the same Snapdragon 630 SoC, and many of the same specs as the XA2 Ultra, but is the first in the series to include an elongated 18:9, 6-inch FHD+ display.

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

The 4K display-equipped Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium was announced back in April, but it's taken over two months for US availability info to surface.

Sony Mobile rumored to exit Middle Eastern, African, and Turkish markets

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

It's not a secret that Sony's phones haven't exactly experienced the degree of success or sales that the company's competitors have seen. For years its design language was stuck firmly in the past, and the high prices associated with its products kept it from competing at the same level as other OEMs. And according to Evan Blass/@evleaks, the company may even be pulling out of the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa entirely.
