I think they were just trying to stay relevant in the smartphone industry. Their fanbase is still not enough to be profitable so they can't act like Apple and the only thing they can do to entice consumers to buy their products is by launching a new smartphone in every major events like CES without forgetting to update their old phones. But I hope they just launched Z6 Ultra and Z6 Mini at CES and launched the other series of Z6 in the next big event.

I doubt any of these phones (if they truly exist) will be announced before mwc 2016! Any flagship announced at CES will totally kill the sales of the z5 line up. I don't care what phonearena says but Sony didnt announce any flagship at CES since the first Z about 3 years ago!

CES launch will harm the sales of phones launched in the previous Q4!

+ hands and feet if you're buying highphone. Even z5 premium costs less than apple's 16gb so I think xperias are still affordable compared to other flagships.

If it's to make profit. Then why not!

I'm expecting a whole new flagship line (flagship which isn't Z line)

Not keeping my hopes up this time around. Every single generation I hope they'd bring back the old quality Sony spirit but no... every one of their flagships have to come with notable inherent flaws..

Wow sounds great.hope they would announce the entire Z6 series by May.because seriously IFA is not the best time to release Z series devices. And by July.we would be able to buy a Z6. The addition of a 4 inch device is great. I would have loved if it would have been 4.3 and 4.7 inch for the mini and compact.

Looks like a very good lineup. Serving all hands. More OEMs should do this.

Dang I just bought the Z4 tablet. I wonder if they'll announce the Z5 tablet or skip to the Z6 tablet.

I recently bought a Z5 Premium. It is a very nice phone. Other than a larger screen I am not sure if there is any reason for me to upgrade anytime soon.

Sony's 6-month release schedule is crazy, but it's also probably what is keeping the mobile division afloat. Fresh models everywhere help. IMHO 4.7 inches for the Z6 Compact just does not make it compact. The 4.6-inch Z5C is pushing it already. The Z6 Mini is a good idea. There seems to be a small backlash against giant phones. But a 4-inch screen, the same size as the original 2010 Galaxy S? I will have to wait until I see it in person.
