Sony Mobile schedules press event in Germany and Shanghai on 25 June – Xperia Z Ultra to be announced?

in Rumours, Xperia Z Ultra

German inviteSony Mobile has scheduled press events in both Germany and Shanghai on the 25 June. The German press invite broadly translates into the following:

Looking for More? It is time for the next step. On Tuesday, the 25th June 2013 at 15:00 we take a first look at the future together.

Use of the word ‘more’ in the invite could relate to the announcement of the company’s rumoured 6.44-inch device, expected to be called the Xperia Z Ultra.

A similar meeting has been scheduled on the same day in Shanghai and Sony’s Vice President Kunimasa Suzuki and Sony Chin’s Vice President Roland Cheng are both expected to attend.

Shanghai invite

We are not aware of other meetings taking place regionally and nothing has been set for the UK media from what we are aware of. We have reached out to Sony for a comment, but haven’t heard anything back so far.

    The Xperia Fawwaz will undoubtedly be revealed- a great day for Sony and all mankind!

  • roeshak

    If Honami isn’t being announced then I’m not interested. Z remains the king until we see that phone

  • DoucheyTuesday

    hmm too early for that, surely.

  • Dakota

    It’d be great if it was the phone with that Carl Zeiss camera that was talked about earlier.

  • wuppidiwupp-wupp-wupp!

    I’m actually looking for LESS from Sony…

  • oecher

    I wait for a Xperia Go with 1 GB RAM

  • roeshak

    I suppose at the very least we’ll see what 4.2.2 has to offer on that day

    Honami …..its the perfect time Sony.. Eat all into the sales of S4 and I phone 5S..”
    all those who wish for Honami give a thumps UP!

  • Herman

    I don’t like how the Honami hasn’t been leaked yet.
    I don’t know what device to buy if this Honami won’t be like how it’s rumoured :(

  • DoucheyTuesday

    *scratches his Sony Chin, wonders what the announcement will be*

  • AA

    Honami needs to have a better screen. An IPS screen.

  • Danzel15

    God please let there be Honami… Just lost my Xperia S recently and Honami would be the perfect replacement…

  • Billy de Fretes

    sony release LESS smartphone than samsung

  • xperiax10.awesome

    Its all about Xperia ZU – Togari phablet and couple of low end phones !!

  • Faisal Armand

    As predicted by myself, 2013 will be the year of SONY. They have so many amazing products this year, starting from Xperia Z, Tablet Z, Togari, and Honami. Not to mention solid midrange phones such as Xperia SP and ZR.

    What is samsung gonna do? Huh? Launch so many products that is based on Galaxy S3’s design? S4, S4 zoom & active, note 3, and bunch of tablet with no improvements over the first and second generation tablet? LOL

  • it’s real, don’t worry :)

  • dftw

    the problem is if it will live up to the hype. i really hope the camera destroys the pureview. i will not be satisfied with something that marginally edges ip5 and gs4 performance.

  • don’t think it can destroy the 41 MP PureView, but will come very close

  • Rob

    I hope it’s not.. Then either they have to have a big gap between annoucing and releaseing it, or people will whine that they release nice phones too often.

  • SomeBody

    No, it won’t even come close. Believe me, I own one.
    Look at the text next to the lamp (through the glass). On the picture taken by the Nokia you can clearly read the text while on the other one you can’t… and the Canon is a DSLR with an APS-C sized sensor.

  • Jan

    i hope something more on PSM PlayStation Mobile in europe!
    we want it

  • Herman

    It won’t destroy the PureView.
    Looking at the rumoured image sensor, it will be bigger than that of the Nokia N8, which had (still has, actually) a great camera as well!

    Even if it only matches the Nokia N8, I’m happy with it.
    As long as it doesn’t have the lack of details and oversharpening issues of the Xperia S, and more importantly the horrible chromatic noise, it’s going to be an amazing camera.

    The question is: where am I going to get the money? :(

  • Herman

    Protip: buy a second-hand Xperia S for the time being. The second-hand price is much lower than it used to be, and you can probably sell it for about the same price again :’)

    That is, assuming that you enjoyed your Xperia S before losing it..

    As a matter of fact.. announcing now will definitely make people curious enough to wait for the phone rather than investing there money on other high end devices
    Also, with those spec’s Do u really believe Smartphone’s need anything more than that! 2018-2020 may be..! but for now.
    this can be the perfect Show stealer for sony!

  • Apoorv

    if they are introducing snapdragon 800 and adreno 330..PSM Is bound to improve even in case the online gaming experience is bound to improve.

    otherwise What will the Snapdragon 800 horsepower worth for.
    even S4 dual core Xperia V can run the same games as Sammy Galaxy 4.
