Sony appears to have a media event scheduled for late June in Munich, although it’s not yet known what the company wants to unveil.
According to German Android News Blog, Sony Mobile Communication Germany has issued press invites for June 25, but we can only speculate on what the company will unveil.
The invitation below asks the readers if they want more and tells them that it’s time for the next step, with a first view into the future being unveiled on June 26.
Looking at that language, one could consider the Xperia Togari as a potential candidate for announcement, a rumored 6.44-inch device said to rival the Galaxy Note 3.
Since Sony managed to beat to market both Samsung and HTC earlier this year with flagship devices – the Xperia Z was launched way ahead of the HTC One and the Galaxy S4 – it wouldn’t be surprising to consider that possibility that the company wants to do the same thing with bigger smartphones.
HTC and Samsung are expected to launch new flagship handsets in the coming months, the HTC One Max (T6) and the Galaxy Note 3, respectively. In case the Togari does get announced on June 25, then the device could hit stores in various markets by the time HTC and Samsung unveil their similar products.
In addition to the Xperia Togari, we’ve seen other Android devices said to be launched by Sony at some point in the future, including the Honami, also reported to be a high-end handset.
Naturally, this is only speculation at this point, as we have no idea what the event will bring us. Whatever it is, it’s Android-related, as that’s the only mobile OS the company is working with. We’ll be back with more details about the event once we have them, assuming it’s real.
