I am sure you remember Light, the maker of the mind-boggling 16 lens camera called L16 – the camera that has the potential of triggering a panic attack with trypophobia? Just last year, the young camera maker who have some prominent investors, including the likes of Leica and Softbank, announced that it is venturing into making mobile phone and as it turns out, part of that plan is to hold hands with a couple of big names in the smartphone industry.

Here’s A Bunch Of Sony Mobile Smartphones You Need To Know About

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.

Sony Unveiled Three Flagship Handsets, Including The World’s First 4K Display Smartphone

Sony Xperia 3+ is 6.9mm Thin, Packs a Lower Capacity Battery That Promised to “Last Up to 2 Days”

We did not do any market research or survey, however, thanks to the need to be on the phone 24/7 of the general population, I have managed to notice that there are a lot of Samsung being used, along with Apple small devices. Only in some rare occasion do I witness a Sony or any other brand. It was sample, albeit not as accurate, but enough to tell you which brand is more popular in my locality. And it brings us to the question: will not changing the look of a flagship from last year help Sony win more market share? Sony has a history of turning up beautiful products since the heydays of walkman and therefore, we have no doubt about the new Z3+ design. It retains the winning formula from last year, but goes a step further by making it even thinner, at 6.9 mm.

Sony Xperia Z1 Compact Smartphone

5-inch smartphone is not for everyone. understandable as not everyone has gorilla-size hand like yours truly, and hence it makes sense for Sony to roll out a slightly smaller version of its flagship Z1, aptly dubbed the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact. announced yesterday at the CES, the Compact sports a 4.3-inch TRILUMINOS display with 1,280 x 720 pixels which is not something to shout about in today’s context and so understandably the star feature isn’t the display. however, it does boast the same imaging prowess of the larger sibling with the same 20.7MP shooter with 1/2.3-type CMOS sensor Exmor RS for mobile, paired to a G Lens and BIONZ for mobile image processor Continue reading Sony Xperia Z1 Compact Smartphone
