Sony Mobile confirms MWC 2017 press conference details

in News


Sony Mobile has started to send out invites to its Mobile World Congress (MWC) press conference, which is being held at the Barcelona tradeshow on Monday 27th February at 8.30am CET. We can’t confirm whether the event will be live-streamed, but it was last year, so there’s a good chance it will be again.

We are expecting to see at least two new mid-range Xperia smartphones to be launched at the event. We have heard no word on a new flagship launch, so Sony might be holding this back until IFA in September. What would you like to see Sony announce at MWC? Let us know in the comments below.

Update: We have confirmed that there will indeed be a live-stream of the press conference, which you can catch over at Sony Mobile’s official site.

Thanks Tony!

    Just one flagship phone a year, please.

  • Jerry Berglund

    WE do actually need a new flagship phone in the compact department. :-) We never got one last year. :-) We got a good and wellbuild one, but not a premium device.

  • Kimberlyrrowe

    Google is paying 97$ per hour! Work for few hours and have longer with friends & family! !mj265d:

  • I’d love to see new wearable and possibly a sucessor for SmartBand… They probably will talk more on Xperia Projector since it’s been present in every press.
    I really hope they only release the 2 leaked models and wait for ifa for a flashing. So they can know about LG, Samsung and Apple plans

  • KzX

    Agreed, X performance is not a flagship, Sony never described it as a flagship.

  • u43spn

    I will see a new compact flagship, a waterproof one. I will also see a new tabelt

  • Bezels for the win !

    just don’t buy the first one … problem solved !

  • ZeRo+

    It`s impossible my friend, because, it’s Sony ))

  • BGDoesGaming
  • Moisés

    It is better to launch 2 mid ranges..

    I do not think one with sd821 would be good idea right now.

    S8, Mi 6, G6 may come with the 835.

  • Moisés

    They prefer to call X Performance as a step aside of z5, not sucessor.

  • Geese Howard

    I couldn’t agree more. One flagship – 2-3 models (e.g. 5.1′, Compact, or even a 5.5′) is more than enough. Can’t wait for them to announce this years flagship, looking to upgrade IF it’s worthy.

  • fried_egg

    they sort of do… the spring launch is an “upper mid range” and the autumn launch is a “lower top range” – both launches get hyped as flagships as they often beat the specs of the 6 months before… but the reality is an entry range is once a year, a upper mid range is once a year and a upper range is once a year (range because there may be different screen size formats)

    Xperia XZ tablet would be nice. 10″ preferably.

  • Battel

    New “M” and “XA” models

  • Okazuma

    ZX?

  • Kariko

    “concept”

  • Can’t wait for upcoming Sony phones.

  • Phil Gym

    I wanna see something new and fresh

  • Mahesh

    I guess that is the thinking. Mid-range at MCW and flagship at IFA. Ultimately that is one flagship per year.

  • iia3ezu

    Mediatek is always low-range. Mid-range is a Snapdragon 6xx series.

  • Crocky

    Smartwatch 4 and a new tablet.

  • Micha Persson

    A new tablet compact, please!

  • jxPerience

  • azzido

    new flagship awaited, no need of more low ends…
    + new 12″ Windows 10 tablet would be nice!

    Waiting for September will give them nothing, we all know how it ended for XZ (3GB of RAM and same old crappy camera… same lcd screen and small battery)

  • Moisés

  • Howard Sternberg

    I hope something worthy to replace Z1C.

  • Nodar Sixarulidze

  • azzido

    It is a step back of Z5.

  • Broadnet Technologies

    Nice Blog. Meet us at MWC 2017 @ Booth Number 8.170D , #MWC17

  • LancerEX

    That’s what they’re doing for the last 2-3 years, the Z/Z1, Z2/Z3 and Z3+/Z5 were launched in the same year. Last year was a bit different though, but the X Peformance had almost the same specs as the XZ. Dunno what’s the point of having the X Performance if the XZ will be released on Q4 of 2016?
