Man, it has been a while since we hear from Sony Mobile. The last we heard from Sony Mobile was the Xperia XZ3 and that was way back in August 2018. Now, if you haven’t already heard (and we don’t blame if you haven’t because the horde of new devices being announced in recent weeks), Sony had unveiled a slew of new smartphones at last week’s Mobile World Congress at Barcelona, Spain. The devices announced include the Xperia L3, a duo with crazy aspect ratio called Xperia 10 and 10 Plus, and Sony’s newest flagship, the Xperia X1.

So, there you have it. A bunch of Sony Mobile’s newest offering to coax money out of wallets of consumers with variety of needs and budget. Though, granted, we have absolutely no idea how much they cost. Surely, they are not as crazily priced as Samsung Galaxy 10 lineup, right? Right? Here’s to the hope that it will not cross the 1,000 dollars mark. Actually, make it 800.
