Sony Xperia XZ sells out in 45 minutes in Taiwan

Sony hasn’t necessarily had the best year when it comes to smartphones. And it hasn’t been so just this year. Sony has been struggling for a long time even with acclaimed devices like many of the Z series phones.

However, Sony claimed profit from it’s smartphone department finally with the Xperia X series and now we have some more unexpected news.
