Predict this – Sony teases its Feb 22 MWC 2016 press conference
Are you any good with predictions? Well, Nostradamus wasn't, so chances are you're not that adept at it, either. Hopefully, you're still good at math, for Sony has just launched a teaser consisting of a familiar mathematical riddle and an announcement highlighting its MWC 2016 press conference. Scheduled for Monday, Feb 22, the keynote will be all about... seriously, no one knows. 

The teaser, and the invite we received before it, are as nondescript as it gets. We don't have much to make do with in terms of speculation. But looking back in time, we get to see that Sony isn't shy about coming up with major and minor announcements on Barcelona terrain. Previous MWC keynotes have seen the company introduce flagship Xperia smartphones, tablets, and mid-range offerings.

However, Sony has a preference towards IFA when it comes to major Xperia Z smartphones, as the Z1, Z3, and Z5 announcements took place in Berlin. We've got a hunch that Sony will be low-key this year, although you can never know.

We'll learn soon enough, as Feb 22 is right around the corner. As usual, PhoneArena will be at MWC 2016, so stay tuned for the news!

Let it be a Z6 Tablet with S820 so I can get rid of this iPad.

Xperia C6 or M6? Not thinking the Z6 because there is leather in the video and I doubt Sony would leave the glass that has been used in the Z series since 2013.

Sony usually had great commercials and teasers, but when they start treating customers like idiots it can't go well!

Treating customers like idiots? I know this is region dependant, but they replaced my Z2 for free when I damaged it in an accident. I know two people who water damaged their S5 (with the flap closed) and Samsung refused to repair it under warranty. The same person, who then bought a Z3 (my advise hehe) also water-damaged his Z3 after half a year and he got a brand new one for free.

Good for you then, Sony has one of the worst after sales service in the Philippines. Imagine bringing your phone to a store for warranty concerns, then they will just give you a paper with a number and address and tell you to go there instead. If you're from the province and not used to the chaotic traffic in Manila you're screwed.

I did purchase an extended warranty for my ZR which includes accidental coverage, but they won't replace the phone for back-light bleeding issues and loose battery cover! So I got my Z5 from an importer instead and saved $210 from the retail price.

Mine z2 was 1 year old when I accidentally left it in the jacuzzi for 6 hours, after 2 days it stopped working and they replaced it with no questions in 5 days.This is what I call red carpet treatment.5 stars for Sony customer care.

Nice Job Sony! I truly liked this one! I'm hoping to also like the phone too! Hope the design has been finally changed.
