Sony is expecting to announce new Xperia smartphones at a press event just before the IFA 2012 trade show kicks off in Berlin, Germany according to GSM Arena. The event is due to take place on Wednesday 29th August from 16.15 to 17.00 (CET). The invite comes from Sony rather than Sony Mobile and we have received no such invite right now, but GSM Arena suggests that new Sony Xperia phones will be announced at the event.
The invite talks of an “exclusive booth unveiling”, however exactly which type of products that will be unveiled remain a mystery. Given that there are a number of Sony Xperia phones in the pipeline (Hayabusa, Mint being two rumoured flagships) then the timing does make sense to go live with these announcements. We’ll report back when we hear more on this.
