Sony may finally launch a successor to the Xperia go/active in 2015

in Rumours, Xperia active, Xperia go

Xperia activeAt the start of the year, we posted that we longed for a successor to the Xperia active and Xperia go. We saw no such low/mid-level rugged water resistant handset in 2013 and so far in 2014, we’ve still seen no sight of one. This may change in 2015, as Digitimes is reporting that Sony Mobile plans to launch sub-$300 water resistant handsets.

Digitimes cites sources at Taiwan’s handset component supply chain. It claims that Sony wants to partner with these component suppliers to push waterproof handsets in the low to mid-range sector. Perhaps it means we may see water resistant versions of the Xperia E1 and Xperia M2 next year, which sounds good to us.

    Used to owned Xperia Active…the screen and durability of the handset pissed me off. No matter how hard you punch,run over,drop it from 3rd floor..this phone can take all that and returned in one piece. I will definitely gonna buy the successor if… can take as much crash test as the xperia Active.

    XPERIA GO was my first SONY phone loved it so much. But hated the battery life. so i recycle it gave it to someone i know who needed a phone and upgraded to Z1. I hope sony will make more low budge phones like the XPERIA GO. now it’s like 129$ on amazon.

    The original active is cool. The go is just so-so. Anyway its a good thing to hear a replacement is in progress.
