Sony has long been one of the many using Mobile World Congress in Barcelona as a stage to announce exciting new products for the first half of the year, so we were ecstatic to learn that the Japanese company has scheduled a press event for February 24th at the big show. Sony joins Samsung, LG, Nokia and maybe even HTC as major players who might have big announcements for us at the show.
So what could they be bringing us? Sony hasn’t had much leaking out over the past few weeks, though that is likely due to the fact that their most significant offerings — the Sony Xperia Z1s and Sony Xperia Z1 Compact — have already been made official as of CES 2014. The company does seem to have a little something brewing for the start of the year, though.
For starters, we still haven’t heard official word on the supposed D6503 “Sirius” phone that was rumored a while back. That phone is supposed to be quite the beast, coming equipped with Qualcomm’s 2.3Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and 3GB of RAM. We’re also told to expect a 5.2-inch 1080p HD display, as well as the same 20.7 megapixel camera sensor featured on the aforementioned Z1 line.
Beyond all of that, we haven’t a clue. Sony has already released their second generation smart watch, as well as an innovative suite of clip-on smart camera lenses. We suppose they’re overdue for a new tablet, though there haven’t been any murmurings of any such development to this point.
Let’s hope they really have tightened their ship up and stopped the leaks, and hope they have more to bring to the table than the Sirius alone. We’ll be touching ground in Barcelona later this month, so stay tuned as we’ll look to get our hands on whatever is announced at the illustrious show.
