For the past few weeks we have been hearing about a lot of new products from companies like Samsung, LG and Huawei which are expected to be announced at IFA Berlin next week. Unfortunately, we have received very little details about any new products from Sony.
However, finally, we have something to be excited about, as Sony leaked its upcoming smartwatch as well as a new tablet in an advertisement released recently. The advert shows off a person with the smartwatch and a tablet and even adds that the device would be rugged.
This is not the first time we are hearing about a new smartwatch from Sony as the device was leaked in a user manual back in August. Now, this advert finally confirms such a device and it would be interesting to
see the specifications that it comes with.
However, Sony isn’t new to the smartwatch game. In fact it was one of the first companies to release a smartwatch, but unfortunately, the company’s earlier attempts were not quite successful.
Today, we have plenty of options to choose from in this segment, with the likes of Pebble, Omate and even giants like Samsung, LG and Motorola. So, it would be much difficult for Sony to jump back into the smartwatch race.
Unlike other companies, Sony has been focusing on its smartphones recently which means there are only a handful of other mobile products in the market from the company. While the Xperia tablet released earlier this year received positive response from both critics and consumers alike, it won’t be enough to compete with other rivals.
So, this Xperia Z3 compact tablet could be Sony’s answer to those who are looking for a small sized premium product.
While specifications are not yet known, some rumors say that the device would come with an 8 inch TRILUMINOUS display with full HD resolution and X Reality Engine. Inside, there’ll be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 Chipset with 3GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. On the back, there will be an 8MP shooter with Sony’s EXMOR sensor.
The specs look good and if Sony prices it appropriately, then the device can be a success.
Luckily, we won’t have to wait long to get more details about these products as Sony is expected to unveil both Xperia Z3 compact tablet and the Sony Smartwatch 3 at the IFA event in Berlin next week.
