Is this the Xperia XZ 2017?

Sony’s second flagship Xperia XZ receives the sweet Nougat update

Did Sony’s roadmap for rolling out the Nougat update sound too good to be true? It kind of was since October came and went, and so did November and yet the company couldn’t manage to roll out a public preview of the latest OS build for even one of its two flagships. But just on the last day of November, that is yesterday, Sony began rolling out the Nougat update to unlocked versions of Xperia X Performance.

Just a day after, Sony’s second flagship, the slightly beefier and prettier Xperia XZ is reportedly receiving the update in many parts of the world. Continue reading “Sony’s second flagship Xperia XZ receives the sweet Nougat update”

Enable fingerprint reader on Sony Xperia XZ and X Compact units in US

You may already know that unsurprisingly the Sony Xperia XZ and X Compact shipped to the US have disabled fingerprint scanners just like every other Sony Xperia before them. Sony reasons this as a “purely business decision,” whatever that means. But if the lack of a fingerprint reader was the one thing holding you back from buying the device, you might want to re-think.  Continue reading “Enable fingerprint reader on Sony Xperia XZ and X Compact units in US”

Xperia XZ now available in the US for a whopping $699

The Sony Xperia XZ is now available for purchase unlocked and contract-free in the United States, but it comes with quite a hefty price tag. The Xperia XZ costs a whopping $699.99, a price point that puts it at the steep end of the smartphone market.

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.

What they needed to improve were the pricing and marketing, but when instead Sony introduced the Xperia X and siblings, underpowered and even more expensive but beautiful pieces of tech,  many were quick to put the new Xperia X lineup down because of its drastic change over the previous Z models and higher-than-expected retail pricing; not to mention the lack of a fingerprint scanner in US variants of all Xperia models which will still continue for “business reasons.”

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