In other news, Microsoft announced that Android apps will be able to run on Windows devices with just a few modifications; an intriguing rumor surfaced about a possible Xperia P successor; the divorce between Cyanogen and OnePlus was all but made official; Google made it possible to control tons of apps with voice commands; and we’ve got a glimpse of the upcoming Oppo R7.
Sony expects smartphone losses and sales decrease over the next year
Because India is growing at a fast pace, Sony sees the country as “completely different” from the global market, so it’s going to release phones costing Rs 8,000-10,000 ($125 to $160), a range Sony doesn’t target in other countries.
Android fans, it’s been a lively week in the world of mobile technology. Sony took everyone by surprise by announcing the new Xperia Z4 in Japan, though truth be told there’s not much new about the device; Xiaomi introduced the latest in a series of affordable blockbusters on Wednesday, the $200 Mi 4i; LG continued to reveal details about the G4, due to launch on April 28; OnePlus restarted the Cyanogen OS 12 update and announced it’s finally dropping its invite system; and Google launched a new version of Android Wear and the Project Fi wireless service.
