Rumor: Sony to introduce two new high-end Android phones, Xperia S60 and Xperia S70
Here's an interesting rumor involving Sony. According to a report published in Germany today, Sony is going to announce two high-end Android flavored smartphones before September's IFA conference. The Sony Xperia S60 and Sony Xperia S70 will be the vanguard of a whole new series of Sony smartphones. The only specs that we can pass along at this time, is that the two new models will be equipped with 32GB of native storage.

Dealers in Europe who are familiar with Sony's plans say that the phones will be available in mid August with August 18th mentioned as a possible launch date. With the Sony Xperia S70 said to be priced at the equivalent of $853 USD to $919 USD, these are obviously going to be high-end models.

The Xperia S60 is expected to be available in white, black, yellow and Coralie. The Xperia S70 color options include white, black, gold and green. While it is okay to get excited about the possibility of a new high-end smartphone series from Sony, we would suggest taking this with the proverbial grain of salt.

If these new handsets are indeed on their way to an August release, we should be hearing much more about them soon. Feel free to check in often!

Thanks for the tip!

Don't suppose you know what colour that actually is? The name makes me think orange or pink...

Quiet a beefy price tag, It would be g=hard to match quality wise especially when S6 drops below $500 (was already $500, few days back on ebay).

actually the price for the Xperias in the EU is always more expensive than most other markets so dont need to worry much
I bet it would be around $800 for the higher speced Xperia max

I wish Sony would make a CDMA model so I could pick it up on Sprint. Thats Sony's downfall, they don't offer it on all carriers.

In most countries you can buy your phone sim unlocked without any carrier involvement. The US is just silly.
