IFA seems like a choice launching platform for many top manufacturers, though not many are bigger than Sony. This historically is their mobile playground, and it’s where they come to show off some of their most exciting second half endeavors. So what are we expecting this year? The Xperia Z3 might not be a bad place to start, but new rumors are suggesting it’ll be joined by other products.
According to Digi-wo, Sony is preparing to reveal the third iteration of their SmartWatch lineup. Simply referred to as SmartWatch 3, we’re expecting the device to use Sony’s custom-built platform based on Android. That’s not much of a surprise considering Sony has already expressed wishes to trek on with their own solution than to fall in with the guys from ASUS, Samsung LG and Motorola.
We’re not sure what sort of evolution we can expect in terms of software, but the watch is expected to be waterproof and dust proof, and could come with wireless charging contacts. Sony will also go with their traditional squared design, though that’s something we’ve always expected. We’re going to have to wait until IFA or for more choice leaks to make their way to the forefront before we learn much more.
