Sony holding MWC press conference on 25 February

in Rumours, Xperia L series, Xperia SP

We can confirm that Sony will be holding a low-key press conference at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) tradeshow in Barcelona. The press conference is scheduled for 08.30 local time, so expect to hear about new handsets around then.

Sony Mobile’s official twitter client tweeted “Are you ready for MWC13” yesterday afternoon, highlighting that something new may be announced. Sony Mobile is not making a big deal about the event, so we expect the company to showcase some new low-end and/or mid-range handsets as well as the likely international announcement for the Xperia Tablet Z.

Rumoured Xperia devices

Sony Xperia L – C210X (C2104, C2105)
Sony C360X
Sony Xperia SP – C530X HuaShan (C5302, C5303, C5306)
Sony C550X Doga
Sony Xperia Tablet Z – C6907 Pollux

  • cincin27

    4′ FWVGA 854×480 with on screen buttons

  • eff

    Yeah me too,but what I find funny is that it’s images are still not
    leaked while Z was leaked months ago.It’s highly unlikely that L is
    a bigger secret than the Z.

  • Maxman

    My God…Even more Devices to decide from. Right now I don`t even know if I should go for the Xperia Z or the HTC One..^^

  • Ramz

    that is an okay processor, yes or no?

  • Nabil

    Yes it is, for a low end phone it is really nice ! Better than my Xperia Arc S

  • exactly. me too having doubts about Xperia L tomorrow. the official images should have already leaked by this time. wonder why only Xperia SP pics leaked while no Xperia L pics.

  • Ramz

    waiting for any xperia with an excellent design with good , acceptable specs .. or else i will buy that xperia v and wish wish wish upon a star that i will never get a unit with the curse called ‘sod’

  • i think it’s the Xperia J successor. the round power button will be also there on right side. yup, lets hope for a compact size with less bezel.

  • eff

    It’s a pretty decent processor for this budget,krait on 28nm paired with
    adreno 305 can alienate any lag,at least with JB.

  • I hope Xperia L price not too expensive and very affordable to buy

  • Xperia L?

  • anshu

    Yeah.. check MWC official website…. But there is no name of sony having a press conference tomorrow…

  • Nabil

    L-ow end :D

  • cincin27

    Xperia L is Xperia J succesor. I hope that the price will be around 220-250 Euro

  • veneticat

    O.O wow those specs look perfect for me..I mean I don’t need an xperia z, its 5″ laptop replacement.( in my opinion) im looking for nice upgrage from my arc s around 4″ / 4.3″… I would get the xperia v, If it weren’t £400 import from USA

  • lovebmw

    C6606 will have to be announced

  • galafix
