sony-ifa-leaked

While Samsung has already made it known that it will hold its Unpacked event on September 3rd ahead of IFA, Sony has yet to officially out its plans but that’s not stopping ePrice from leaking Sony’s press invite.

According to the invite, they will kick things off September 3rd at 4:15pm (in Berlin). Even more importantly, the invite hints at what we can expect to see from Sony. To no one’s surprise, the images show off a phone or two, very likely the Z3 and maybe even the Z3 Compact. There also appears to be hints about a few other devices such as a new TV set, and even a new attachable camera lense, likely a follow-up to the QX100 and Q10.

Beyond this, not a lot of other details are revealed, though turning to the rumor mill it’s also possible we might be seeing an 8-inch Sony tablet revealed at the event as well. Either way, we’ll be live at IFA come September to bring you all the latest details, so be sure to stay tuned to Android Authority.

    Awesome! :)

    It seems fake

    • Tjaldid

      why? because of the slightly lower resolution of the screenshot vs the actual image?

    Slightly off-topic: Sony stopped selling computers in Finland just when I found out that I need a laptop in my new school :/ Vaio Pro 11 and 13 are the best ultrabooks IMO, so light

    “To know one’s surprise” >:)
    “its also possible”

    • Tjaldid

      yep, it doesn’t look like the new VAIO company is headed for world domination more of Japan domination

    • Konrad Fraczek

      Yeah, Sony stopped production of Vaio :(. I am lucky that I have bought a high end spec last October.

      My guess is that Sony saw no profit. Their laptops are magnificent, they are pretty and reliable but they are also very expensive. You probably could but the same spec 30% off from other companies, so most people who just cared about price went for other cheaper brands. Maybe you could buy a Vaio already made by Sony but not a custom made.

      My friend wanted a Vaio but he couldn’t find one, he ended up buying a HP laptop.

        I ended up buying HP too, am I your friend o.O Jokes aside, I didn’t know they completely quit doing computers, I just saw a banner on their Finnish page that said that they’ve quit their business in Finland. Also, expensive? Vaio Pro 11 was the cheapest one of the laptops I was looking for , yet had pretty much same features as the others and was insanely light, perfect for school! Me sad

        • Konrad Fraczek

          o.O? Interesting in Ireland they are way more expensive that other laptops. I bought a Vaio because reliability, I still have an 6 year old Vaio working perfectly. I have read somewhere (can’t remember where) few months ago that Sony sold Vaio off as they were losing money on it. That makes me sad, they have the best laptops.

          • MasterMuffin

            Many PC makers are losing money currently :/ Enjoy your Vaio, I’m slightly jelly :)

          • Konrad Fraczek

            I know, people mostly go for tablets. I will :D Good luck with your HP, my friend enjoys his, hope you will too.

          mac is also good.

          • MasterMuffin

            Bad keyboard, doesn’t support the stuff I need in my school and is pricier while offering less in term of specs. I was considering a Macbook because they’re light and have great battery life, but more cons than pros for me

          • Damon Adrian

            it’s all about specs it’s about experience. a mac ends cheaper because of 7+ years of life

          • MasterMuffin

            I’m talking about storage and RAM in this case. I’ll upgrade before 7 years anyways and give it to someone, so I don’t care how much I could get from selling it later

          • Damon Adrian

            how is 16gb not enough? and what model you on about?

          • MasterMuffin

            You’re now completely ignoring the price. And seriously, why are you even continuing? I already stated all the reasons why I didn’t buy a Macbook.

      • crutchcorn

        No way…. :( I’m sorry

  • Haseeb

    I won’t buy any phone without the Snapdragon 810.

  • Sal

    I hope it comes with snapdragon 805 or 810.

  • Woe of [S]unjΔy

    I hope that they unveil a Z3 Ultra

    • crutchcorn

      Here here!

      • Woe of [S]unjΔy

        There there!

  • David Rutla

    Yes please a new case for my QX100…now for them to work on the apps lag…that would be helpful

  • crutchcorn

    I actually am looking forward to a new attachable cam!
