Typical, nothing new, soon they will probably provide all parts by themself, only they will need to pay for foxconn to assemble It. Will save loads of bucks

It seems like a better version of XA1, not a X1.
X and X Compact are done. Numbe... morewell the XA series has nice design so putting in a great chipset would make it more appealing.
i dont understand why the X series and x compat aren't more popular. I just recently got the Sony X for 250 dollars and i'd say thats an awesome deal considering the quality of the phone. Maybe i wouldn't buy it at msrp either but at 250 dollars its the best phone for that money.

It seems like a better version of XA1, not a X1.
X and X Compact are done. Number of devices sold were lower than XZ and X Performance.
Sony will not keep premium midranges..
Same happened to M5, price was similar to Z3. Or even Z3+ in some areas.

Lcd= still backlit
I do like LCD because white is very white and images look natural, but oled has a few better things..
apple 100% "in house" smartphone... when is that? Maybe year 2250? Making screens and SoCs doesn't make smartphone in-house. Even Samsung and LG's are rarely 100% in-house (Exynos running S5,6 and with ISOCELL camera sensors were 100% in-house). Apple has enormous way to go from currently 0% in house to 100% and equally I don't really see them having technology, nor being able to efficiently achieve this. Currently they are like light years behind technology when compared to likes LG, Samsung, Huawei etc..
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2017" the benefit of OLED is better battery life " Only when you use a lot of black. Which curr... moreNot true, the saving comes from not having separate back light and accounts for ~35%+ when comparing like for like to LCD, furthermore OLED is technically capable of running additional 50% more efficient when you are right, it depends on how much black is in picture. LCD cannot disable single pixel whereas OLED can, that not only gives better contract and black, but as well can save significant amount of energy. As such OLED is 35%-85% more energy efficient than LCD. Minimum 35%, technically up-to 85%, but on normal use average panel is ~65% more energy efficient. Considering that up-to 70-80% of all energy used by modern smartphone is screen... this makes for significant difference.
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2017Best selling doesn't mean best product! In fact it's ussually the worst product... remember VHS?oh right?? nokia 3310 was worst..**** what bout ps3 and ps2..*** did you also forget about your own comment, how LG is the no.1 in business.. *** lol bro, stick to your own words atleast.. I know best selling is not always the best.. but best selling also doesnt mean it is the worst, infact it is the best allrounder, thats why it attracts so many consumers..

Anonymous, 25 Jul 2017Whoever is manufacturing and supplying Apple with it better make sure they know what they are ... moreThey should have seen this coming as Apple's aspirations always have been total independence. Unlike many Android handsetmakers which produce devices using off the shelf components. So this "news" doesn't come as a surprise to me.
Whoever is manufacturing and supplying Apple with it better make sure they know what they are getting themselves into and have some sort of backup. Just look at the companies that supply them with the sapphire glass and Imagination, once Apple turn their back on your, you are literally bankrupt.
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2017This IFA Sony has 3 phones: XZ1, XZ1 Compact and a 3rd phone.
This 3rd phone is better than X... moreits going to be the successor of the Sony X.
also apple and samsung are making big moves now sony really needs to catch up.
also how is apple's OLED going to be "in house" when they are buying machines from other companies.
Apple trying to make its own in house stuff is scary. and im wondering when if ever sony will hit mainstream but im sure apple has enjoyed pushing sony out of the competition by not including them in carriers.
Another step to follow Samsung's step.

LG tv displays are nowhere close to what samsung did with S series.. 8 years of development.. put on a VR, you will know, how different a note 4 and a s7 is.. , maybe LG is doing great in TV business... but thats not a huge business by long stretch.. 90% of the masses doesn't replace their TVs in 2 years or so.. A TV lasts for 8-10 years.. but a smartphone, is replaced every year or two.. So what are you getting at?? Samsung J series and their amoled panels do very well and only one year sales is equal to LG tvs selling in total in five years.. if profit is what you are talking about... and if you are talking about overall asset.. samsung and Apple are in a total different league of their own.. no electronic brand is even close by a long shot... but the thing is samsung TVs also do very well in the market due to the brand recognition, and reliability, and one of the better services they provide onsite,
but THE MOST INTERESTING THING IS, EVERY SURVEY SITE I GO, I FIND SAMSUNG IS ON THE TOP, IN BEST SELLING OR MOST POPULAR TV MANUFACTURER AWARDS..

And yes Apple will definitely lose the Case Coz Samsung have this Technology from last 10 Years ..

Won't be completely in house. They use Sony and Omnivision to make their cameras.
Here we go. I knew this day would come. In house Oled. Now Apple will claim they invented it. Then take all the credit, patent it. And sue anyone who infringes on it.
Anonymous, 24 Jul 2017I think that time machine you built is malfunctioning properly!This IFA Sony has 3 phones: XZ1, XZ1 Compact and a 3rd phone.
This 3rd phone is better than XA1/XA1U but cheaper than XA1U.
Premium comes every 18 months.
Next Xperia Premium will come at IFA2018.
It will have Oled screen.
Also new imx500..
Trust me, many gossips on Weibo lately
