Sony may launch two new Xperia Smartphones at MWC 2017

by Karthik Iyer 3

Judging by the previous trends, it looks like Sony‘s Xperia lineup is not doing quite the trick for the company. Not that these are bad smartphones by any means, but customers are simply not ready to buy them. There could be a lot of reason for this. First, it could be the absurd pricing or maybe there is nothing much that is being offered by the company in terms of design. We have seen the exact same design for the past couple of years and maybe it is the time that they realize the need for a change.

Well, that is something to be decided by the company so that we will leave it up to them. But talking about the new smartphones, it looks like the company will be launching their first batch of smartphones of 2017 at the MWC trade show. Well, the same can be confirmed since the company has already registered two phones with a Russian regulatory body. What else do we know about these possible new smartphones from the company? Not much. We just have the first details about them, and it includes only the model numbers as of now.

These two new Xperia smartphones go by the model numbers G3112 and G3121. And when you compare the model numbers with some of the previous smartphones launched by the company, we can pretty much confirm their launch at the event. These new model numbers follow the same pattern as the previous phones introduced by Sony at the same trade fair. So these new ones fit quite well here. But sadly as mentioned earlier, we don’t really have much info about them to be reported as of now.

However, if you are in the market for a Xperia smartphone, then the current options for you include a few like the Xperia XZ. The Xperia XZ is sort of the flagship smartphone, which the company has to offer here in India as of now. It packs some serious specs like a 5.2-inch IPS FULL HD display that has Corning Gorilla glass. Under the hood, it is being powered by a Quad-core Snapdragon 820 chipset along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 256 GB via microSD card. It also packs a new 23MP IMX300 sensor that includes triple sensing autofocus – PDAF, Color Detection, and Laser. The front-facing module is of 13MP as well.

But all of this again comes for a hefty price of 49,999 INR. For that price, you can get away with a couple of smartphones that will nearly give the same or similar performance. Hence customers tend to go for other smartphones. Coming back to the new smartphones which have been spotted now, we expect to see more info about them in coming weeks and months. It is also safe to say that as the closer we get to some of the international events, the more info we will start getting them. So if you want to know more about them, then we suggest you stick around as we will update once we have more details.
