Sony Mobile is preparing to hold press conferences in Taiwan and Hong Kong next week. According to the local media reports, the company would be unveiling a new flagship there. The press event in Taiwan is scheduled for May 27 while the one in Hong Kong will take place on May 28.
In Taiwan, Sony is expected to unveil the selfie-centric Xperia C4 and the Xperia Z4 Tablet. ePrice Taiwan says that at both the events, Sony will also be introducing a new flagship which it calls the Xperia Z3 Plus, a smartphone basically like the Xperia Z4 that the company released in Japan last month. This Z3 Plus (or Z3+) is probably the flagship variant of Xperia Z4 meant for the rest of the world. At the time of its release in Japan, there were rumors that the rest of the world would get the flagship in May, which seem to be coming true.
Sony has also sent out invitations in Hong Kong for a press conference to be held on May 28 to release “The new Xperia flagship product” which has “Top shot, screen, sound, water and design all in one.” The device will also apparently have a new color. Reports also say that four product development engineers from Japan will be sent to the Hong Kong press conference to give info about the new models.
Sony India is also holding a press conference in India a day earlier i.e. on May 26 where it is likely to launch the mid-ranger Xperia M4 Aqua. It is not known whether the Japanese smartphone maker will launch the new flagship Xperia Z3+/Z4 there.
We will keep you informed about it as soon as we know more.
