    No fingerprint for US version? No thanks.

  • Geralt

    flash UK firmware, And you have the BESTEST Smartphone ever in market.

  • KarFar

    I want fuckin legit leaks. Can’t wait till MWC. WHERE ARE THE LEAKS!!!

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Just flash an official ftf file and you won’t even sacrifice any warranty what so ever :) Reason why Sony inactivated the fingerprint sensor in USA is because of a patent hold my HP that involves a combined fingerprint sensor in a power button :p

  • Moisés

    Does that Nexbit Robin have same fingerprint?

  • Moisés

    Cool….

    I bet in my country the 32gb model is still US$ 1100

  • Moisés

    100% secret….

    The E6 might exist too, than woulb be 6 devices.

    Gossip 1: XZ 2 (sd835), X2 (sd653), 2 devices with Helio P20 and a 5th device..

    Gossip 2 : XZ2( sd835) , X Perf 2 ( sd 835), X2 ( helio p20), xa2( helio p20) and a 5th device

    Gossip 3: Xz ( sd835) , X Perf 2 ( sd 821), x2 ( sd 653), xa2( p20) and 2 other devices..

    ” Yoshino” is XZ 2 or X Premium
    ” Blancbright” can be X2 or X Perf 2

    I do not think X2 would come with Helio P20… X2 would be way weaker than X.. P20 is similar to SD625…

    In my opinion we have XZ2, X2, Xa 2017, XA Pro and M6. No info on a 6″ device…

    XZ is 5,5 4K
    X may be 5,5 or 5 QHD
    XA is 5″ HD

    A 4th device with P20 has 5,2″ Full HD and 16mp selfie.
    The 5th device has 5″ HD

    At least 32gb and 3gb ram.. XZ might bring 6gb ram. The photo posted on Weibo may be the 4th device…

    So is flashing the firmware easy and most importantly does it void warrenty? Torn between ordering this or waiting to see the new phones when they’re announced in a couple of weeks !!

  • ymytbb .

    What do you mean by “flash the firmware”? Is it easy to do?

  • Moisés

    Example updates..

    You can wait until it arrives on your phone or search for the firmware on internet and do it yourself.

    You would be installing the “english” software and removing the ” american” software so the power button becomes fingerprint scanner..

    You use something called Flashtool.
    I have never done, but it seems to be simple task.

  • Moisés

    I guess you lose warranty

  • The_Newtype

    1) Improve software algorithms for jpegs
    2) Include the noise canceling headphones in the retail package
    3) Charge $399
    4) Include the fingerprint scanner out of the box
    5) 4GB RAM

    Done.

  • iArvee

    No, you don’t lose warranty for flashing a firmware, lol.

  • dragonsneeze

    You don’t lose warranty by flashing, it’s an unlocked device.

  • iia3ezu

    We don’t expect the price to last long,

    Sure… it’ll drop further into the bargain bin when the new flagship phones of 2017 are released by LG, Samsung etc. And the latest new challenger: Nokia.

  • Stefan Marić

    6) Bankrupt Sony Mobile.

  • Geese Howard

    Anybody still hasn’t received the Nougat update? Z5 Premium here and checked phone and Companion nothing. Couldn’t careless about the price slash, but the update man lol in Asia.

  • xAntifreeZe

    check here instead:
    https://xpericheck.com/device/E6853
    When your carrier release the update, you will see it there. I have yet to receive mine either

  • Geese Howard

    Thanks man, tried checking and no luck. My CDA isn’t even shown lol

  • Juggs

    3) Charge $399 -> This

  • Moisés

    About the fingerprint for american units..

    HP has rights on power button as fingerprint. Sony would have to pay for it. Price would be higher.

    Z3 and z5 were more expensive than XZ when they were launched.

  • The_Newtype

    Regarding the fingerprint issue and the Z3/Z5 pricing, I already know this. I’m saying they can’t continue this course when other, cheaper devices are flooding the market with the same or better features. We all want a Sony, but it gets to the point where one is simply paying for the name — we tend to remember these companies as they were, not as what they are.

  • The_Newtype

    If other players can figure out how to get such a device out of the door, Sony should be able to do the same at a price that is sustainable.

  • I have earned 104 thousand bucks in last 12 months by working from my home a­­n­­d I did that by wor­king in my own time f­o­r 3+ h /day. I’m using an earning model I was introduced by this company i found online and I am so thrilled that I was able to earn so much money. It’s really newbie-friendly and I am just so grateful that i learned about it. Here’s what I do… http://statictab.com/gpfvgtj

    Device is not only cpu, gpu and ram..

    Many brands use cheap stuff. Their employees work 12 or 16 hours daily and make less than 70 dolars monthly.

    does the uk firmware have built-in wifi calling? looking to use on t-mobile us. thanks!

  • impasse

    curious, does the uk firmware have built-in wifi calling? looking to use on t-mobile us. thanks!

  • The_Newtype

    I’m not understanding your point. The marketplace does not discriminate against such details; carriers and consumers care about features and support, and the price should be a reflection of those two. Sony doesn’t have the clout in the mobile world to demand a premium for their devices, especially when the end consumer (be it us, a carrier, etc) is quite literally getting less than they could for the same money some where else.

  • Moisés

    Many of chinese brands sell cheap phones because their factory cost is much cheaper.
    They use cheap materials.

    Sony uses full hd for a 5,2″ XZ and people say it’s a mistake. One Plus has 5,5 in and is full hd.. Everybody says wow. Xiami Mi 5 is 5,1 and it is full hd too.

    Many chinese brands use cheap RAM. Except Huawei, others brands bring cameras that are worse than Z1 or S4.

    Many people who buy Sony, Samsung, Apple or LG keep their phones 2 or more years.

    I doubt someone keeps a Oppo, OnePlus, Vivo for a few years..

    They are cheaper because most of these brands just make copy. They do need to spend money on research.
    Just buy all components and built it.

    Xperias displays have the same tecnologies Sony has on their tvs.
    Most of devices have stereo sound.
    Waterproofing makes it more expensive at least 20%.

    Every time some websites write about a new device from a chinese brand is always about better cpu and more ram. Only…

    I doubt the factory price of a S7, i7, V20 or XZ is lower than OP3T, Mi Mix..

    Sadly I don’t have a clue, since I’m not from the UK but from Sweden xD
