Sony announces press event in Germany, is a 6.5-inch smartphone coming?


Now that's interesting! Sony has a big announcement to make on June 25 and we think we know what it may be all about. What you see here is an invitation to a press event about to take place in Berlin, Germany. The image itself reveals little as to what's going to be unveiled, but a clue leads us to believe we might finally see the long-rumored Togari phablet.

"Lust auf mehr?" – that's what the invitation says, which can be interpreted as "Want more?" in English. Does "more" mean we'll see a Sony smartphone with a humongous screen? Probably, if our intuition is to be trusted. Rumor has it that an Android smartphone by Sony is in the works, equipped with a 6.44-inch, 1080 by 1920 pixel touchscreen. Further specs for the device supposedly include a Snapdragon 600 or 800 SoC, 2 GB of RAM, a 13 MP Exmor RS camera, and a stylus of some kind, which means that Sony might be readying a Samung Galaxy Note III competitor. 

In addition, the press event might shed some light on those rumors claiming that a Sony Xperia Z model with stock Android is coming. We also have plenty of evidence suggesting that the Sony Xperia Z is coming to T-Mobile in the U.S., so the company may take advantage of the buzz and make that official as well. 

Whatever the case is, we'll know what Sony has in stock in just a few weeks. The June 25 Sony press event starts at 3:00PM German time (9:00AM Eastern U.S. time) and rest assured that we'll be covering it.
