Interesting thing, Every Sony website in Europe has the X Performance listed, EXCEPT Sony Germany. Could be somewhat suggestive of poor information connections & therefore less reliable reports? I'm seriously hoping anyway, heh. I need a nice Compact replacement for my Z1C; Z3C & Z5C weren't good-looking like a flagship should be.
Also seems really strange that they would limit their entire top-end range to just one screen size. So I'm hopeful that the Germany news is just wrong.
Plus still waiting to see a Z5 Ultra!! :)
DenisXD, 24 Feb 2016oh please not again. Lex come on manLove the way you direct that me!
It won't be 'again' though, I'm not getting into another slagging match with Tann under any circumstances. I will however question and respond to comments if a feel the need to, sorry that annoys you so much but you seem to feel you can question the comments of any user, so I guess so can I.
Xperia Z line dawned.
Z1 -bad battery life
Z2 -camera force close due to overheat,never change design
Z3 -water proof fail,never change design
Z3+ -camera force close due to overheat,never change design
Z5 -Rubbish 4k screen,never change design
and Fail now :)
I hope that Sony will keep on producing the Z line flagship/s, & so i hope that this year we will see the Xperia Z6!!?
Definitely two more models to come. Sony would not give up on their compact range, it's what helps set them apart from other manufacturers. The compact versions of their flagship phones are superb, every tech journalist recommends Sony in this category.
I'm gonna set my alarm clock for September, then we'll see
Even if thats was true, this X series is just half update to better processors. Well I like it better anyway if they can surprise in event, not like a month known S7.
this news is fake sony wont tell their secret to sony mobile germany or others
Tann Hauser, 24 Feb 2016Nope, there is the latest report from Sony, go check it out
Mobile section profitability incr... moreFirst I never made any promises to you at all, also I only said I wouldn't reply to you on the topic at that time.
Now, all information I can find shows that whilst Sony overall is showing a profit, the mobile division is still struggling and in the red.
But then you are Mr. Sony it would seem, and are (somehow) the last word on all matters relating to Sony, so I guess i'll have to just bow to your knowledge on the matter.
Tann Hauser, 24 Feb 2016Parag dreams with avand
Im quite awake and capable of looking at numbers and deducting from i... moreProof please..
We all know that sony isnt even in top 10 smartphone vendors. Even just born yesterday vendor Vivo beats Sony easily.
Now with Z3+ bad sales and late Z5, i guess sony is now even isnt in top 15.

same strategy when they first enter mobile market after taken over sony ericsson, they released xperia s,p and u ... its might work this time around if they play it right with great marketing team.. they should stick with xperia xa, x, x performance for the entire year.. it will reduced cost and make some profit.. anyway, it just my opinion.. if apple can survive, why can sony do the same? have some faith.
OK, I had a feeling, this will happen, but now I need a compact version from X Performance.
I love my Z5, but much more like my Z1 Compact because of it's smaller size.
Z3 and Z5 Compact was a POS because used a lot of plastic. I DO NOT WANT a plastic flagship never ever.
Jumbo, 24 Feb 2016Sony's flagship for the year is lacking 4K video? Large bezels reminiscent of 2012? It's a nic... moreNo, they do not lack 4k video recording, that's only intended cheating mistake to fool the people.
Tann Hauser, 24 Feb 2016And how exactly do you assume otherwise lexie?
Given Sony mobile buissness behavoiur in the... moreWell that's just it, I am assuming based on the information thus far.
You however appear to much more confident about your idea's of what is coming from Sony, and I can't help but wonder what makes you so sure? what makes you think you are such an authority on Sony?
That is a terrible, terrible marketing idea. Those products went completely unnoticed since people wrote them off as low and mid rangers while waiting for the new flagship.
Sony's flagship for the year is lacking 4K video? Large bezels reminiscent of 2012? It's a nice phone, high-end yes, flagship definitely no.
I've had only Sony since CMD-J7 - K600, W880, Xperia P, Z1 Compact. If there's no Compact version anymore, I'm really not sure where my next phone will come from; I've already passed on the Z3C & Z5C as the style was already going downhill. Hard to please you might say, but so far Sony has always had something for me. Doesn't look like X-series will have a Compact so.. a sad day indeed.
Sony has always releasing a testing unit before they show up their flagship. (Like M series did).
Maybe X series will be their testing unit for sd820 and bevelled glass.
Sony is always brings us unexpectedly.
