Xperia Z5 video leak confirms 4K display

Xperia Z5 video leak confirms 4K display

Well, here's one thing Sony fans might be looking forward to this week. Or not. Perhaps realizing how far behind they are at the smartphone game, Sony might finally be upgrading its smartphone displays. But wait just a second! It might actually be doing more than that. It might be pushing he envelope to almost ridiculous levels, outing what is probably the world's first 4K smartphone. That is, if any of these leaks are true and not just wishful thinking for a smartphone brand that is slowly losing believers.

Xperia Z5 render leak hints “greater focus” is 23MP camera

Xperia Z5 render leak hints “greater focus” is 23MP camera

When it comes to Sony's IFA 2015 event in a few days, you might be in either of two camps (not counting those who don't care). Either you're waiting with interest to see if the Japanese OEM has anything left to offer the mobile world, or you're no longer interested because you think it doesn't have a prayer. If this leak of press render images is to be taken at face value, the latter camp may have reason for their indifference, revealing nothing notable other than a higher camera sensor.

Sony teases an Xperia with greater focus, not a greater Xperia

Sony teases an Xperia with greater focus, not a greater Xperia

It's IFA time soon, and naturally, almost anyone and everyone in the tech industry are ready to make a splash. Including Sony. But if you were perhaps hoping for some redeeming smartphone, it might be time to rein in those expectations. Sony's UK Twitter account just teased something for its pre-IFA 2015 event, hinting at a smarpthone with a better focus, presumably a better camera. It is, however, sadly silent on whether we can also expect a better Xperia smartphone to go along with that.

Sony debuts MGS5-themed Xperia, Walkman devices for Japan

The September release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is rapidly approaching, but if the limited edition MGS5 PlayStation 4 console isn't enough for you, Sony's just announced more game-related hardware goodies for the Japanese market. The lineup of Sony devices includes the Xperia J1 Compact smartphone, Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, Xperia Z4 Tablet, Walkman A16, and the Walkman ZX2, all designed with Phantom Pain logos engraved on the hardware, and custom wallpapers and sound effects pre-installed.

Xperia Z5 Plus tipped to get 4K display

Xperia Z5 Plus tipped to get 4K display

It's more than a bit odd to me that the resolution of many tablets and smartphones is higher than the resolution that many of us enjoy on our computers. Word is circulating that Sony Mobile might be among the first smartphone makers in the world to launch a smartphone that rocks a 4K UHD display. The smartphone rumored to be getting that 4K screen is the Xperia X5 Plus.

Sony Xperia M5, C5 Ultra puts the focus on photos

Sony Xperia M5, C5 Ultra puts the focus on photos

True enough, Sony did have something in store today, but sadly, it's not a better Xperia flagship. Then again, for some people, these two smartphones might very well be, especially since the OEM doesn't seem to budge away from 1080p screens anyway. But what really makes the Xperia C5 Ultra phablet and the somewhat higher end Xperia M5 special is their cameras. Or, as you might have guessed it, their front cameras, with both smartphones sporting 13 megapixel front facing shooters for the ultimate selfie.

Sony might be sticking with Snapdragon 810 for Xperia Z5

Sony might be sticking with Snapdragon 810 for Xperia Z5

Qualcomm might have found a staunch and loyal friend in Sony. If it hasn't yet, it should. Despite all the flak it received precisely because of the Snapdragon 810 processor, it seems that Sony isn't about to jump ship. At least not for some upcoming smartphones. User Agent profiles of two device lines, particularly a certain E6603 and E5803, believed to be the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact respectively, show evidence that those two will run on the almost ill-fated chip, which is bound not to sit well with those hoping for better Sony flagship before the year ends.

Sony rolls out Android 5.1.1 for Xperia Z3, Z2 devices

Sony rolls out Android 5.1.1 for Xperia Z3, Z2 devices

It has mostly been bad news lately for Sony fans, with the almost scandalous Xperia Z4 and the contentious Xperia M4 Aqua. But now there's a reason for them to cheer up, especially if they own one or a few of Sony's previous smartphones. The manufacturer has just started the distribution of an Android 5.1.1 update and it will be hitting the whole range of Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z2 devices, both smartphones and tablets, many of whom are still living in an Android 4.4 Kit Kat world.

Xperia Z3+ owner resorts to kitchen foil to fight heat

Xperia Z3+ owner resorts to kitchen foil to fight heat

This DIY fix serves as a testament to the extent users will go through to desperately fix a significantly broken device. It also probably hints at how much trouble the Xperia Z3+, a.k.a. Xperia Z4 in Japan, is giving its users. And some users just can't take the heat anymore. One in particular, ingeniously applied a bit of physics and chemistry to help dissipate the heat that the smartphone is generating using nothing but common kitchen foil. And apparently, he wasn't the only one who has thought of that solution.
