Sony sends out MWC 2016 invites

by XB on 18th January 2016

in News, Xperia X series


MWC 2016Sony Mobile’s Mobile World Congress 2016 press conference will take place on Monday 22 February at 07.30 GMT / 08.30 CET. We can’t be sure if new smartphone hardware will be revealed, but remember Sony didn’t have an official event last year, so that could mean we will see something new. Mark the date in your diaries folks.

  • KzX

    Z6s shouldn’t release until 2nd quarter.
    Please don’t be Z6 series.

  • fluxx

    What do you expect?

    At least one tablet, that’s for sure?
    A mid-range smartphone.
    A fitness tracker and/or a smartwatch.

    What else do you want?

    A new Z phone will be a little bit too early, although I’m really looking forward to the Z6 with a Snapdragon 820 and fixed optics without blurry corners.

  • Clarence Alvarado

    Tablet Z6 and E6.

  • KzX

    I really eager to see new smartwatch.

  • Clarence Alvarado

    Hope to see that circular transflective LCD that was purported be used for the new Sony smartwatch.

    I have a question about Mobile World Congress; I’m 27 years old and just a customer who is interested in new gadgets and smartphones but I’m not a seller or a company. Do I need an invitation or a batch or something so I can visit the MWC? Or can everybody go there without invitation? I hope somebody can help me…

  • SONY only

    i want Z6 Tablet Compact

  • You need to register i think….

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    Z5 Ultra :-)

  • bladenr1

    They just delayed marshmallow for z4. That for me is retarded. Can’t believe it.

  • fluxx

    I own a Huawei Watch and a Sony SWR12 band. After two weeks with the Huawei I’m back to the SWR12 because it is much easier to wear, tracking is better, battery last longer etc. But I miss simple informations like the time and date. So I really hope they are doing something like an improved SWR30 with heart rate, better materials and similar display and runtime.

    But I would bet they are showing a new Android Wear smartwatch, they put a teaser on the last invite to the IFA 2015 but did not show anything, so this time it’s almost for sure.

  • Exhibition Visitor Pass
    €749

    But you will not be able to participate on keynotes sadly, only walking there, watching new gadgets.

    tablet with other screen ratio than 16:10 please, one like pixel c would be an instant buy from me

  • Cakefish

    Mmmm it’d be too soon after Z5’s.

  • hansip

    Z6 i think, or at least Gear VR equivalent for z5P

  • shhh

    That’s pretty steep for just a walk.

  • DonRox

    No leaks yet. Makes me doubt that any new hardware will be unveiled at MWC!

  • TracerBullitt

    Hoping for the Smartwatch 4. My SW3 is a bit weary, original band is rubbing through at the corners, I have to put it an angle to charge, and you have to scourge the Earth for the metal or adaptor bands…

    I also really wish Sony would knock their competitors’ teeth in and use that “camera behind the screen” tech they started showed off a while back, in a smartwatch and phones for slimmer (if any) bezels and more accurate selfies/video chat. What happier happy happened to that?

  • Zbaeia

    Tablet Z6 xperia T4 xperia M6 xperia M7 xperia C6 xperia C7 xperia E5 xperia E6 Z5 Plus xperia z6 ? :)

    I bet at least one device will contain a crappy Mediatek chip. ;p

  • Jaissal S

    A new tablet will surely be shown. A new Smartwatch too. I don’t think we’ll see a new phone in the Z line yet. A new phone in the C range and maybe M range too. I wonder if we’ll see a Compact tablet or a Z4 tablet sized one. I liked the Z4 tablet but looks too expensive. Loving my Z5 and Smartwatch 3 still!

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    I’d love to see a new tablet. (with different storage options with SDcard support :D)

  • iia3ezu

    If it were too cheap the place would be flooded with plenty of low quality people who have no business to be there.

    I think Z6 suppose to come out in Q3

    Q1 2016 is too early and Sony will have the time for developing the best things for Z6 .

  • shhh

    You could’ve just said “plenty of people”, didn’t have to include “low quality”.

  • Timel

    What about the early leak of pink gold Xperia phone that expected to be a C6 Ultra

    Hope Sony will not release new flagship phone in MWC 2016

    I wanna see something new like flexible / foldable smartphone from Sony in MWC 2016 while Z6 will launch later in Q2-Q3

  • dragonsneeze

    Better buy 2 Z5 compacts and throw one away.

  • Timel

    This is very interesting!

    You remind me of this Sony’s patent

    Wishlist time

    Z6 Ultra

    Same frosted glass back (acceptable) or full aluminium alloy frame

    5.8 inch 1440p JDI 2nd gen Pixel Eyes, IPS-NEO LCD with local dimming backlighting (600 zones would be dope) that can process HDR content like all the new HDR TVs unveiled at CES with appropriate

    Louder stereo speakers

    Stronger audio output

    USB Type C port (version 3.1 not 2.0) with QuickCharge 3.0 (manually adjustable to preserve battery health) with superMHL compatibility

    Sense ID fingerprint scanner in power button

    Custom 1/2″ 16MP f1.8 16:9 rear facing camera with PDAF, deep trench pixel isolation like ISOcell and OIS, capable of hybrid stabilised 1080p/60fps, 1440p/60fps and 2160p/30fps

    Enlarged 5MP f1.8 front facing camera with colour-adjustable screen flash function

    RAW support and deeper manual camera controls

    3500mAh battery or whatever brings 3 day battery life of light to average usage without using Stamina Mode

    Snapdragon 820 with 32GB ROM/3GB RAM or 64GB ROM/4GB RAM

    UFS 2.0 or NVMe storage with microSD card slot if possible as storage speed is the hot new performance bottleneck to tackle

    Ultra Stamina Mode changes display to grayscale and allows music playback

    A Samsung-like Download Booster (“HybriData”?)that can work under different conditions: not needing LTE to operate and can combine slow WiFi and slow mobile connection (appreciated in developing nations)

    Small apps can covert into full Multi-Window apps if Marshmallow allows it

    Broader audio and video codec support out of the box

    E6

    Similar ergonomic design to the E4 with slimmer bezels

    Splash resistance

    4.7 inch 720p JDI IPS NEO display

    Single front facing speaker that beats the old E1’s

    Cheap fingerprint scanner somewhere

    8MP rear facing camera taken from iPhone 6 to assert sensor market dominance

    f1.8 5MP front facing camera

    2700mAh removable battery or whatever brings 2.5 day battery life of light to average usage without using Stamina Mode

    Snapdragon 616 with 16GB ROM/2GB RAM (don’t trust Mediatek’s current offerings for battery life concerns)

    Same UI and camera software features as mentioned in previous list

    Smartband Talk 2

    Fully fledged fitness tracking (heart rate etc.)

    1 week battery life

    Miscallaneous
    Modular VR headset which accepts recent Z phones and has PSVR compatibility

    Well, as I am already board of my iPhone 6S and it’s screen looks like a washout mess next to my Z3 Tablet, I may return to Android, and after having the nice sized Nexus 5 for 2 years, I only want an Xperia Compact and so am hoping for the Z6 to be announced, complete with Snapdragon 820 and 1080P screen :D
    I was actually checking out the standard size Z5 today, nice phone but a tad too big.

  • fluxx

    Keep it. I went for Android Wear only to find out there are no really useful apps. Nothing serious a SW2 couldn’t handle too.

  • dragonsneeze

    Of course! It’s just too much money for just a walk (probably they’ll give some freebies) it just seemed more logical to throw a phone away :P

    I know. Wear looks too young (and expensive) to me, no real advantage till now (calls).
    SW2 has always-on screen, stable OS, 3+ days battery life and is superfast. I use it mainly for notifications and watch (alarm clock and countdown when cooking) and after 2 years is still a great smartwatch.

  • theskig

    BTW: autumn 2014 during holidays in Sardinia I lost my first SW2 and I bought it again after a few weeks. Missed so much :)

    Can’t wait!

    Lets hope they do announce a phone in MWC. But seeing no leaks so far its unlikely. Waiting for Z6 as my primary device..

    Probably not this year, but maybe they could work on a PS Vita successor being an Nvidia Shield Tablet rival around the same 8″ size with a custom high end Snapdragon processor, lightweight PlayStation OS which can use also Google Play apps, 1080p/60FPS gaming and streaming (PS3 level graphics is fine), Vita shaped cartridges and compact Dualshock 4 controller.

    “Xperia Play Tablet” is the best name I can come up with.

    is this a hint for a new xperia design???

    This year will be my second year, I got a ticket both times by just keeping an eye on Twitter (searching “Mobile World Congress Pass” and the like). That said I do work in telecoms.

    It’s getting in to press events like these that is hard. Sony’s security were on me pretty fast when I walked in to their press booth thinking it was their public booth.

    I fear Sony has s surprise as usual

  • Paul M

    your Z6 ultra specifications are good, but too small, loads of phones around with 5.5 to 5.7″ displays. It needs to be at least 6.2″ to be a proper ultra!

    no 3GB RAM model, only 4GB.

    also Qi charging now Sony dropped the mag charge dock connector.

    things we should be able to take for granted: 802.11ac wifi, bluetooth 4.x

  • Vuyo Ncube

    The problem would be the bezels at over 6 inches. Considerable compromises were made by Notes and Mates to trim the bezels (e.g. no stereo speakers, small batteries). Unless they make it really thick like the ZL.
