Sony has this week announced a completely new family of Android-smartphone, which currently consists of three model: Xperia? A, Xperia X and Xperia Performance. We’re a little surprised that the company has not announced any new smartphones Xperia Z, but most likely this will not happen in the near future, moreover, does not happen at all.
According to Sony Mobile Germany, a series of X – is the replacement of the Z-series. This was announced at Facebook, in response to the company’s fans questions about any future smartphones Xperia Z. was also mentioned the fact that the rumored smartphone Xperia Z6 does not exist at all. Thus, we can assume to assume that the Xperia X Performance and will become the new flagship smartphone in 2016 by Sony. Unfortunately, the smartphone does not go on sale until June.
Unlike Samsung or LG (both of which continue to produce the flagships already known series), Sony, apparently, felt the need for a new beginning. And it’s not only new names: although the Xperia X Performance is not too different from the smartphones Xperia Z5, it introduces a new design element – its rear panel is made of brushed metal instead of glass in the Z5.
Of course, the name of the new flagship of Sony is not so important. What is important is that the Xperia X Performance is a worthy successor to smartphones Xperia Z5. The new smartphone is a bit less than Z5 (5 inches versus 5.2 inches), but may have many users perceive it positively.
