Sony Teases #XperiaDetails Ahead of IFA Press Conference

Next week is IFA in Berlin, which means a deluge of unveilings is nearly upon us. Of course, in vying for media attention, a few companies have jumped the gun, but others – such as Sony – apparently prefer to retain an element of surprise.

A specific example? The new teaser video released this morning, which subtly hints at features we can expect in the manufacturer’s as-yet unrevealed devices.

A jogger? Painted fingernails? Underwater shots? In addition to a Snapdragon 805 processor and 20.7MP rear-facing camera, sounds like fitness software, color options, and a water-resistant body are shoe-ins for the next Xperia. Or maybe I’m just reading too much into it. Darn you, cryptic Sony.

Intrigued? The press conference is September 3.

    I have a xperia z ultra 6.44″ screened phone and waterproof. For the love of God make an xperia z ultra 2 with an LED for flash And slightly bigger screen & better speaker and I’d buy….

      Aman to that brother

    Sony can make a good ad.

    September should just be declared Tech Month every single tech company is holding a major event to show off some kind of new tech or software.

  • Matthew DiGiacomo

    7 MM thin? Nice.

  • Bryan Mills

    Sony makes great phones, but their release cycle is wonky. As long as they include a QHD, 3gb ram, and the same 3000+ mAh battery, I’ll get it when it comes to Verizon.

    0:40 looks like an Xperia Z Ultra 2. Woot woot.

    • Bryan Mills

      Hahahaha i hope to god that’s a tablet and not the Ultra.

      • CasperTFG

        With a telephone apk and radio.

        • Bryan Mills

          I liked the original ultra, it felt fantastic, but man, I’ll never understand why they ruined the camera on it.

          • Mazeko

            I owned the z ultra for a week, and I would’ve sacrificed the camera more if the top and bottom bezels on in were smaller. It was basically a really thin nexus 7.

      • Mazeko

        I’m thinking it’s the Z3 tablet, the xperia Z3 and the Z3 compact.

        • Tor Guy

          If that picture is accurate, theres a very slight chance its a tablet, it looks more like a Z Ultra 2. Its too narrow to be a tablet per say traditionally speaking, that’s a very Z Ultra shape to it.
          Sony tablets are made square, not rectangular.

  • Troy Myers

    I’m just hoping for a us release. I really want to try out a Sony, but they are so hard to get ahold of.

    • Bryan Mills

      Rumors been pointing at a Verizon release for the Z3. With Band 13, LTE-A, FCC filings, I’m really hoping it comes true.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Sounds great and all. It’s a good step for them but since they’re so big on selling unlocked they should really try to tap into the US market from that direction. I need GSM/LTE unlocked

        • Bryan Mills

          They’re international models work, but they’re just expensive
