The smartphone market is pretty crowded and with a new phone launching almost every day it is not easy to keep the track of the brands lagging behind. But, having said that, being tech enthusiasts, we can’t stop looking at some brands which are still on the race track and are just running behind.
Chance are you probably have forgotten these brands and what they bring to the market occasionally/seasonally. We are talking about Sony Xperia, a brand that is following its own pace and launching phones when it thinks is suitable. Now, a report sheds light on the company's plans that could tell you what's brewing inside Sony's house.
Reportedly, Sony was supposed to launch the Xperia 10 II Plus, a follow up to the Xperia 10 II phone it launched way back in February this year but this is not happening.
According to a Chinese tipster, Sony has decided to focus on 5G from now on and that’s the reason it has scrapped the unexpected Xperia 10 II Plus. The tipster also said this phone was being developed with the Snapdragon 720. It is possible that Sony is looking at revamping it with 5G instead but we can’t comment on the status with scantier information.
It is possible that Sony adds 5G support with a new chipset, of course, and launches the phone with a different name entirely. Currently, we hear no plans from Sony or any leaks from the tech world.
5G is definitely that major milestone where every tech company wants to reach and put their roots deep into the ground. The tech has definitely started evolving but it will take much time to become commercially available.
