sony-ces-2017_thumbMark your diaries folks, Sony will host its CES 2017 press conference on 4 January 2017 at 5pm PST (1am GMT, 2am CET, 6.30am New Delhi, 10am Tokyo, 12pm Sydney). A livestream of the event will also be available at this link on the day.

We have not had any new Sony Xperia phone launches in CES over the last few years, and we don’t expect this year to be any different. However, we could possibly see some new wearable additions, after all a Sony SmartWatch 4 is long overdue now. What would you like to see Sony introduce at CES 2017? Let us know in the comments below.


Thanks Ben!

  • Probably their first OLED 4K televisions

  • After Pebble was sold to Fitbit the thing I would buy right away is an updated SWR30 with HR and better (b+w) display. Currently owning a SWR12, it’s a great little device but I’m missing a display. Also owning a Huawei Watch and still find no reason to use Android Wear.

  • Subham Dey

    there are little chance sony will be launched xperia xz premium with 5.5″ 4k display,dual rear camera,SD 821…

  • Olaf Duits

    a new Smartwatch 4, new and slick design, heartbeat sensor. And at release, nice different wrists straps available. I will throw away my smartband and sw3 and buy the SW4 at once.

  • Kim

    XZ Compact and Premium…

  • Jillgsizemore

  • José Luís Andrade

    Probably the new Xperia XA (G3121 and G3112) and new Xperia X

  • Mac

    New Bravia
    Tablet both 10.1″ and 8″
    Release date for crash and uncharted dlc

  • deekbee

    As long as it uses standard 22mm straps, you’ll be able to use any off the shelf straps, and there’s a huge range of good ones available for a less silly price than Sony would charge.

    And the heart rate sensor would be close to useless ….

  • Battel
  • Bezels for the win !

    who needs that dual camera bulsh!t ? it’s f#cking ugly and useless !

  • Geno

    I’d like to see an Xperia X tablet

  • kaostheory

    Something to replace the note. If they were smart.

  • Shehab Skull

    if this is true .. I would not recommend using a SD 820 .. It is a little old now !!

  • Sony Xperia XZ Compact please, hehe, reduce screen size to 5.0″ and improve battery power.

  • algiuz

    X compact tablet please. Love me z3 compact tablet to death. shame it dies on marshmallow

  • paul_cus

    A new Xperia tablet.

  • Moisés

    It seems they want to use sd820 on XA 2.

  • Moisés

    Some people believe Sony wants to use snapdragon 820 on XA 2..

  • Cecco1970Effeffe

    – The intention to increasingly reduce the frames on the Xperia 2017 display …
    – Something worthy to previous compact, to be called this: top small range
    – If you do not waterprof, remember how you built the old ZL and have fulfilled my first two requests

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    I wish to replace my AMAZING Z3 with an amazing upgrade (at least I dream for)
    5.5″ QHD display
    3400mAh battery
    4GB Ram
    SD 835
    Possible release during May

    All I care about great battery life.

  • Hideg Jenő Péter

    XZ Compact with S820, 3GB RAM, 4,6″ it would be too nice like my Sony Xperia SP. (or something atleast like 4,8″ for suitable big hand)

  • Hideg Jenő Péter

    Who needs for that dual camera?
    We don’t need like LG G5, iPhone 7 Plus fanboys.
    XZ Premium with 4K Display? Yeah it’s better with chrome paint. (yep it has dual heatpipe. As i seen dismantled the Z5 Premium)
    SD 821? It’s overclocked version like original SD 820 stock clocked.

  • Matteo85_b

    i hope for xz compact

  • Kim

    Would be great – full metal body, waterproof, crazy battery time. X Compact is a great phone, but they still need to bring a flagship compact model. Z3 compact is Sonys real classic, but it needs a worthy successor…

  • Andriod 7 for Xperia X & X Compact on way?… Open source 34.2.A.0.266 –

  • Why do I get to the page with the “Sucuri WebSite Firewall – CloudProxy – Access Denied” when I try to log on here in my profile?

  • P9

    off topic: XB missing a news about mid-range phone similar to XZ design leak, or just me?

  • razorg

    It seems that way! The previous firmware is for X is 34.0.A.2.292, and 34.1.A.1.198 for X Compact. The increase in the second term of the firmware number suggests a newer Android OS version. Wow, Sony really is going to keep their Nougat promises as it seems. Now we wait for Z5 series :)))

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Me too also I wish if they finally add sleep tracking for the smartwatch because now it so annoying to switch between the smartband and the smartwatch to record sleeping hours

  • Nodar Sixarulidze
  • SonyMan

    I think, or at least I hope so, Sony is gonna make nougat available for all Z5/Z4 series the same day their event takes place… Judging from the timeline followed Tipp now that’s almost close. They gave nougat to X performance at late November and to xz series early December. January is Z series turn to get treated with nougat. I hope they start seeding the same date with CES or at least within am 48 hour timeline…

  • Jaissal S

    I’m excited to see what’s in store for Sony!

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    Look at how impressive Huawei P9 and Mate 9 is… Dual Camera can give you such impressive photo with less noise, more detail.

  • Petrohead

    You realise that the XZ is 5.2″ and there’s barely a difference between the two? If they’re going to call it ‘Compact’ then it needs to be in the 4″ range as the non-compact version is in the 5″ range, with Ultra sitting in the 6″ range.

  • Geese Howard

    Would love to see Sony coming back to the Tablet scene. Their tablets are awesome.

  • azzido

    New improved SmartBand 2 with pulsometer, heart beat sensor, bigger battery and better screen / apps (gym) to support it :)
    Also it would be nice to see a new 12″ tablet with Snapdragon 835.

    SmartWatch? Only in case the screen will be round and watch much much improved in both specs and design. Otherwise no thank you.

  • azzido

    It would be useful in case you are visiting gym / fitness ;)

  • azzido

    rather XZ tablet

  • azzido

    their first LG tv :)

  • azzido

    3400 mAh battery is too small, 5.2″ Z2 had 3200 mAh…

  • azzido

    tablets yes, but they really need to improve the batteris and keyboards for it :/
    And the cameras that was very poor…
    For this proce of tablet they should implement best camera they have, like the one from XZ with all the sensors. Otherwise NO for the price they offer…

  • azzido

    but they were not and lost their chance…

  • Mac

    Oh almost forgot, a new Car Quick Charger for Usb-C please!

  • Sorry, I Mean XZA.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    All of the 5.5″ have 3400mAh batteries so I thought it’d be enough :D

  • deekbee

    You do realise that the optical heart rate monitors in these watches (be it a garmin, fitbit, apple, polar, etc.) is only of any use when running. When doing almost anything else in the gym they don’t give a reliable heart rate reading – so you can’t do any form of useful training with them (ie. target heart rate, working within heart rate zones, etc.)

  • hmmm

    A new pj camera with smaller sensor than 1/2.5 and recirding volume control when using an external mic or a new external mic with external mic from sony for a long time!

  • Moisés

    All X have plastic frame. Then it does not need external antenna.

  • Moisés

    Yes. I want a X tablet..
    8.5 inches display, 4k resolution. 13 mp front camera for video calls. No rear cam, waste of time.
    Fingerprint scanner, 10000 mAh battery.
    Lime gold color like X Performance. Or copper like z3+.

  • hmmm

    How can icrap have only metal???Really regretting the back si not glass!metal is going to scratch,glass is not!so what if you break it???just buy another glass back!

  • Moisés

    Iphone have external antenna. Those lines with different colors.
    Iphone 4s was full metal and had signal issues. That is why iphone 5 was glass.
    Lot of people used to complain on the glass of Z.
    The same old story : heat and cracks.

    I like metal frame, i have a z3+. Mine is white, frame is not painted, is silver. I can see the effects of oxygen on it. It is not going to look nice for years.

  • Moisés

    Hi guys of Xperia Blog. If you have contact with Sony please deliver our suggestions.

    I hope they really bring the X Premium.

    It would be great a Xperia with snapdragon 835, 4 or 6 gb ram. 64 gb memory, no hybrid slot.
    The IPS LCD 4K HDR display, 3700 mAh.
    Option to turn it HD or Full HD to save power. 25 mp rear cam, 16 mp front with flash .
    4K videos for both.

    And the option to see videos as sequence of photos and save them . Z5 Premium does thar.

  • Jaissal S

    I would follow suit also. But are people still buying smart watches? Hopefully we get a nice one.

  • hmmm

    So instead of s stupid line,they give us stupid plastic frames???GENIUS right?and they call it flagship!!!!why complain about glass back and heat,when every phone does heat???I had all Z series,4 phones and never crack the back glass!there are tempered glass for back,what will I use for xperia xz??Nothing right??and the cheap materials will just scratch in no time!I’m sure I’m going to be disappointed about cheap xperia xz,but I’ll buy it!

  • hmmm

    I hope Sony will give up IPS tv’s and make VA panel for tv’s with direct backlight!why would you care if you tv is 1cm depth or 5???why would you use IPS on a tv??why would you care about colors from sides??who watches tv from the back of tv??

  • babylonbwoy

    A tablet, I need a new one, my XTZ is way overdated now.
    Even the Z4 tablet is too old, can’t buy in 2017 a gadget that was released in 2015.

  • What is the password- can’t get in without one. Ustream is asking for it?
