First the good news: there's a new upcoming Sony smartphone of the high-end kind. The Sony Xperia A is what it's called – a moniker we've actually heard before, and the FCC is where detailed information about it has just been discovered. The not-so-good news, however, is that we aren't likely to ever see this particular smartphone launch in the U.S.
Sony Xperia Z flagship, blessed with a 5-inch 1080p screen, 13MP main camera, 16GB of storage, LTE connectivity, and a 2300mAh removable battery. One missing puzzle piece is the processor powering this Android smartphone, so we aren't sure whether it's equipped with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro or a different SoC.The Sony Xperia A is bound to launch on NTT DoCoMo in Japan, bearing a model name SO-04E. Hardware-wise, it is similar to the
Chances are that the Sony Xperia A will be introduced officially on May 15 by carrier NTT DoCoMo itself. That's also when we might learn whether the smartphone will ever land in countries other than Japan.
Sony phones looks identical lately.

Sony has the best phone design in the market.I mean it's phones differ a lot.The Xperia NXT(S,P,U) series had that tranperent bar,then the Xperia T,TX,V,J had the curved back and now the Z,ZL,SP,and others have the lock key in common but everything else is different.No other manufacturer uses such a good design in it's portfolio-Samsung phones all look the same in diferrent sizes,HTC is still stuck with almost the same design,not talking about iPhones :D

This one resembles the Xperia ZL better... and it even has a camera shutter... Anyway Sony is trying to flood the market a la Samsung... but they should stick to simply filling market spaces and taste... Low end model, Medium model, Medium Waterproof, High end, High end Waterproof, Phablet, and Honami... and maybe an Xperia Play 2 :)
