Sony Electronics has just sent out invites to the media for an event. This event from Sony will take place at the CES 2019 starting next week. Also, Sony has caught everyone off guard as no one was expecting a new Sony event to happen soon. Therefore, there are very few details about what is going to be launched at this event. But there are rumors circulating which state that Sony will launch the Xperia XA3 or XA3 Ultra at this event.
As far as the event is concerned, Sony has mentioned that this event will take place in Las Vegas on January 7. Traditionally, Las Vegas is the place where CES is held every year and same is continued this year. Now, it is also speculated that Sony may launch an entirely new smartphone at this event all together.
According to the report published in Phone Arena, Sony is betting big on 5G. Thus, we may get to see the first 5G smartphone from Sony at this event. However, that does not mean that we can buy the phone. It will mean that we may get to see a working prototype of the world’s first 5G smartphone.
It is also mentioned that Sony plans to boost its smartphone business again by mid-2020. So 5G technology is the way forward if Sony has to make a mark again in this industry. At the January 7 event, Sony is expected to launch the Xperia XA3, Xperia XA3 Ultra, and Xperia L3. All of these smartphones will have 18:9 aspect ratio display, glass on the back and metal on the sides.
Now, the Sony invite attached above does not reveal much(if anything). Therefore, we will have to wait and see if there are some interesting things to be seen at the Sony CES event on January 7. On the other hand, Sony will launch their flagships, Xperia XZ4, XZ4 Compact, and XZ4 Ultra at the MWC held in Barcelona next month.
