As we are waiting for next week's launch events of Apple, Google, and Samsung, there is one more tech event to add to the calendar. Sony Mobile has announced a new launch event for "Xperia New Product Announcement" that will take place on October 26th. It will be a virtual event that will be broadcasted live on YouTube.
The announcement does not mention what will be announced but since there is Xperia reference, it is safe to assume that it will be a new smartphone. Sony has already launched its usual flagship products i.e. Xperia 1 III, Xperia 5 III, and Xperia 10 III. We know that the company prefers to release other phones without holding dedicated events. This suggests that there is a good chance we might see a completely new smartphone lineup.
It is also quite possible that Sony may end up launching a new Xperia Android tablet. It has been a long time since the company released a tablet. These are only speculations and it might be something completely different. Nevertheless, we will keep you posted if any new developments are there.
