News about Sony Xperia ray

Sony is one of the manufacturers that got many mentions in this year’s Mobile World Congress for their flagship smartphones which includes the Sony Xperia XZs. After its big reveal, the flagship comes with a deluxe version, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, which will be released this year. Sony is saving the premium version for a later release, while the Xperia XZs is already available for pre-order in Asian markets like India. Here are the features of this lite phone flagship from Sony.

Recently, Sony revealed that their focus is on the Xperia X lineup. However, they still have to dedicate time into manufacturing other devices such as the rumored Xperia C6. Renders of the rumored device have been floating all over the internet, displaying Sony’s signature outer body design that can be seen in their recent smartphone models. One leak that surfaced about the Xperia C6 shows a design that is similar to the renders that appeared in the previous months.

At long last, the much-awaited Android Nougat 7.0 update will makes its way for the venerable yet relevant Sony Xperia Z5. Despite being released nearly two years ago, the Sony Xperia Z5 is still going strong since its specs are not really that dated. It may prove to be a long wait but Sony has been one of the first manufacturers that has came forward to affirm its commitment in updating its large range of smartphones during the sudden release of Android 7.0 Nougat by Google. Recently, it has just released the Android Nougat update for Sony Xperia X, XZ, X Performance and X Compact. Next, it will be Sony Xperia Z5's turn.
