You already pay for their devices, that's supporting the manufacturer enough.

KingSingh, 30 Jun 20172160 x 1080? There's no way this is Flagship, this must some type of high end mid ranged phone.why not? can you SEE the difference between FullHD and QHD on a phone without side by side comparison? I doubt.
Nice, Sony is doing better and better phones, this autumn will be interesting,
sony fans are the worst ihave ever seen.. they never accept the flaws.. I am a samsung fan, and i have seen most samsung fans complain about the flaws.. samsung listens that, and changes that. From galaxy S2 to s8, its like day and night.. from Xperia Z to Xperia ZX or whatever, they look identical.. boxy, square, with huge bezels, and a design that is plain jane.. Watch marques brownie's smartphone awards.. sony got none.. this is the reason.. they are always late with everything.. sony of the past is simply gone
Chriskhany, 30 Jun 2017It's simple though.(at the very least simpler than Samsung)
1. XZ PREMIUM.XZ.XZs (flagship 80... moreSamsung is simpler in their nomenclature:
Premium: Galaxy S and Note.
Upper Midrange: Galaxy A series, C series for the most competitive markets.
Midrange: Galaxy J(5 and 7), Galaxy On (those are just Galaxy J but for Amazon and equivalent online markets)
Low-end: Galaxy J (3 and under), Grand/Prime
Special: Galaxy Xcover (rugged midrange), Tab E (low-end) Z (Tizen)
No matter what anyone says... Sony will always be the best.
But this stupid wierd 18:9 aspec screen ratios that LG and Samsung started is just not inovation and redundant. It's the most gimicky idea ever to change a screen ratio of a smartphone just in favour for idiot people to think it's cool and go buy it.
Kirk, 01 Jul 2017SHARP vs SONY
a battle to the top between two samurais huh?sony is just an old samurai who cant even lift his sword.

I mean I'm sure it did at one point, I'm not so sure anymore especially when the advancements we've made over the last 2 years.
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2017Would you bet your ass on that?That's kind of gay, I'm not sure if I'd do that.
Definitely this is not XZ1 Premium. Because Sony release a premium edition for 1.5 Yrs from last premium device, so next premium will arrive on 2018 IFA
This should be something else... and thumbs up for that... always believed in sony :-*

It's delicate and all. Bezels=durability hurr durr stuff? Now that they are making one. The defense team goes full force. Cool....
This phone will be a bezel less version of the XZ Premium, which in itself, only has the bezel size as the downside.
When this gets real and released, we'll see how the other people react, and obviously will try so hard to find a flaw like "IT'S A SONY, SO IT'S BAD!" LMAO
before making such a phone, please make an update fixing the problem of xperia z2,c4,c5 ultra and other for its homekeys bug or ghost touch..specially for c4,many owner had these problem but never been fix by an update.. same on you

"Why make 2 flagships in 1 year?"
1. Japan consumer demands. Every manufacturer should release a new device every 6 months.
2. It's a match for the competitors like LG and Samsung, two of which are releasing 2 main flagship devices in the same year as well.
"Why are their phone names confusing?"
Now, it ain't anymore.
They're focusing now on just two lineup, XA and XZ.
The former is a mid range category and the latter is obviously the high value standard flagship.
Going deeper, the XA comes in tandem. XA, a standard sized mid ranger, and XA Ultra, a phablet mid ranger with great selfie capability.
The XZ comes in 2 to 4. XZ is the main middleground, XZ Compact, as its name suggests, is a Compact flagship phone. XZ Premium will always be a big sized screen-featuring flagship, typically always the highest in screen resolution. If it's possible, there might be an XZ Ultra that will be the same as the XZ Premium but with an even larger display and battery.
Let's not also forget the XZ tablets, a successor to the Z Tablet series.
