So, as I imagine everyone missed it but today Sony launched a new Xperia X range which they claim are: 'ultra high mid range phones'. They are NOT advertising them as high end phones. Their is the X, the XA and the X Performance, the low end model has a Mediatek chip, the mid range has edge to edge glass and a Snap Dragon 620, the high end one has a Snap Dragon 820. I think they all come with 3GB Ram but no mention of water or dust proofing has been made, and they have changed the glass back for metal. Also the low end and high end phones have finger print scanning power buttons but the mid range model does not. The low end model has 720P 5" screen the other 2 have a 5" 1080P screen, all have a improved camera with new algorithms and very cool focus tracking: Xperia X: Xperia XA: Xperia X Performance: Nice phones? Interesting new camera tech, BUT, and their a few big BUT'S. The X Performance costs 699 Euro's ( http://www.xperiablog.net/2016/02/22/xperia-x-family-priced-in-europe-pre-orders-now-live/ ) which is the same price according to this article as the new Galaxy S7 is which IS a high end phone: http://www.express.co.uk/life-style...Galaxy-S7-Edge-UK-Price-Revealed-Release-Date Not only that, but Sony are NOT launching the X Performance into the UK or Germany: http://www.xperiablog.net/2016/02/22/xperia-x-performance-not-heading-to-germany-and-uk/ And you know what is the worst of the news today? They are scrapping the Z range, yes that's right they are ditching their flagship range of devices so no Z Compact.... as I understood one of their bigger sellers, weather they will be replacing this who knows? Reveled in this video: And this: https://www.androidpit.com/xperia-z6-replaced-by-xperia-x-performance with the updated article of this: UPDATE: 15:33 PM, February 22 A Sony spokeswoman contacted AndroidPIT this afternoon to retract the original statement. The spokeswoman said the country manager who told AndroidPIT Italythat Xperia's Z line would be dropped had "mistakenly" revealed product roadmap details. The spokeswoman also said Sony would not publicly discuss the roadmap at this stage. The either means that the information we were given earlier is incorrect or not officially confirmed. You can read the original story below. Sony SEM (South Eastern Mediterranean) Country Manager Augusto Zumbo told AndroidPIT that the company has decided to carry out a "silent" rebranding, changing its Z line to the X line. The Sony Xperia X Performance is the new flagship in this range. The Xperia X Performance will offer a Snapdragon 820 processor and a 2,700 mAh battery, which is smaller than the 2,900 mAh battery in the Z5, although Sony claims it can last two days thanks to enhanced power management, although we've heard that before. It also offers water-resistance certification, as is Sony's style. So I read it as basically long live the Xperia X of which the top end version I will not be able to officially buy, and what will be made of the next Compact if they make one? evleaks said he had information but was not willing to share, he didn't say what it was about and then he posts the new X line on his twitter account before the official unveiling. So.... Is the Z dead? Is the future prospect of high end Xperia's in the UK dead? Is the Compact dead? And with the conflicting messages from Sony is the Xperia X their flagship device which won't be sold in the UK is that acceptable? What do you guy's think? Has Sony messed up?
