Sony teases new Xperia devices to be unveiled on August 30 at IFA 2018
Sony will surely introduce brand new smartphones by the end of the year and from the latest teaser published by the Japanese company, it looks like new devices will be unveiled this month.

The teaser doesn't show anything related to the new devices, but it does feature the Xperia logo, which is why we believe one or more smartphones will be announced on August 30. Since the unveiling event will take place at IFA 2018, the new phones are likely to be showcased at the trade fair.

Aside from the Xperia XZ3, we're also expecting some mid-range devices to make an appearance, such as the Xperia XA3, but we don't rule any surprise announcements. At least one of the Xperia phones to be unveiled soon, the Xperia XZ3 will not feature a notched display.

Unfortunately, we don't know much about the other phone Sony could announce later this week, the Xperia XA3, besides the fact that it will be equipped with a Snapdragon 660 processor and 6GB RAM.

Perhaps we'll be able to learn more about what Sony plans to reveal on August 30, but since we're only two days away, the wait should be bearable.

I'm curious about the camera. They really improved it with the last Xperia's, and I'm expecting a brand new sensor for the XZ3.

Honestly? I'm hyper critical of Sony, but I do want to see them do great things. Personally, I'd love to see them come out with a great mid-range Android One device at a competitive price and a shift from their current design language. An Android One with a SD 660 that resembles a Z3 with much trimmed bezels would be pretty cool.

No plans for android one. It would not have Sony apps nor their features like stamina, screen tuning, multiple users etc

Sony is the Nintendo of the mobile industry with their confusing phone names. Imo it needs a complete overhaul. I don't know the difference in their phones, and I'm on mobile websites daily

R for low L for low mid XA for mid XZ for high

I don't even know R and L exist.. And I think he complain about the "back name", like ultra, plus, premium, and s (as in XZs) And that 2-letters naming is just unnecessary, they should've stick with Z for flagships.

You obviously don't know Xiaomi with their magical weekly new phone announcements.

No chance for an Xz3 compact I suppose?
