Sony Xperia YouTube Account Posts Video Promising “Something Extraordinary” On The Way

This year’s gathering at Mobile World Congress is coming up fast and Sony is teasing us with something new. The Sony Xperia YouTube account has uploaded a video today, hinting that they have something up their sleeve, but doesn’t give us much other than that. Could we be seeing the update to last year’s Xperia Z1?

The short video is only 15 seconds long and full of artistic depictions of flowing materials and lots of the color red. The tagline of the video is Sony telling us “Something Extraordinary is Coming” and then that’s about it.

Fortunately for us, Sony used the same tagline last year before the launch of the Z1, so we can make a few assumptions. Pile that onto the fact that images and videos of a reported Z2 were leaked last week and we might be seeing a new device or two from Sony very soon.

    I would love to give a Sony phone a try, or at least check it out in store as a possibility….. But, I am on VZW and have Unlimited (so not changing carriers anytime soon), and Sony hasn’t released any phones for VZW.

    Jesus is coming.

    Sony used to by synonymous with high quality 10 years ago. It’s said to see their phone lines not being bigger as they should. But then again Sony has done no real innovation to make the Xperia phones stand out besides the waterproof material. I hope this revelation is truly ming popping as they’re showing.

      I’d say their cameras over the past year (particularly the 21 MP sensor) have also been industry-leading.

    Still want that Z1 Compact to come to the States.

    It’s too bad they decided to do this on the same day Sammy Debuts the S5. I’d like to see Sony have a footprint in the US but decisions like this can explain a lot. Even if this “Flagship” phone is just a refresh from the Z1(but with better screen tech, less bezel, 5.2in, & camera improvements) there is NO Way I’d let it share any spotlight with the S5…..if I were SONY that is.

    It’s the D6503 Sirius (Z2?) for Verizon…hence the red!

  • Gabe Logan

    New Syphon Filter confirmed.

  • BlackMaGiC1o0

    What an actual good phone from Sony?

    • The Narrator

      Xperia Z1, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1 Compact, etc

      • Stone Cold

        I love my Z1S on T-mobile but it is exclusive to T-Mobile. Anything else direct order from Sony.

  • Turb0wned

    What letter of the alphabet is it this time Sony.

    • Or_pick_name

      Xperia Zzz.

    I was already considering going to the Z1S from my Moto X, guess I’ll wait to see what they unveil at MWC.

    I REALLY want to give Sony phones a shot but they don’t come to the US carriers and when they do it’s months later, and just on Tmobile. Give me a model with At&t LTE and i’d be willing to give them a shot.

    • Stone Cold

      Z1Ultra is LTE equipped and should work on AT&T.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        You mean the phone meant for Big Foot lol ? I’ll be needing a normal size phone.

        • Stone Cold

          LOL yes the Bigfoot phone. It is a bit of an adjustment going from a slider/physical keyboard Relay 4G to the z1s.

    • T4rd

      Indeed. I don’t think they finished their sentence; “Something extraordinary is coming…. to everywhere but the US.”

  • Daniel

    Should be the announcement of the Z1 Compact coming to Verizon

  • The Narrator

    Wouldn’t doubt it. Sony is awesome, if they can bring it to the state’s.

    • Stone Cold

      I hope Sony continues to try and push for a bigger presence here.
