Sony imports four new smartphone prototypes into India for testing and debugging
Four Sony prototype handsets arrive in India for testing and debugging
The Zauba website tracks imports and exports into and out of India. Over the years, we've seen smartphone models shipped to India for testing in the country just before they were officially launched globally. Last Friday, Sony shipped four prototypes into Banglore for testing and debugging. The phones listed on the site include the Seahawk Rex PQ, Eagle Rex AP, Seahawk Gina AP and the Eagle Rilads AP. Each prototype has a value equivalent to $617 USD.
Considering the pricing, these would appear to be high-end handsets. The Sony Xperia Z3+ is expected to be unveiled in India this Friday, June 26th. With that in mind, we can pretty much rule out that variants of Sony's new top-of-the line smartphone are involved with the Zauba listing. And since each of the four specific devices shipped into India are clearly marked as being "Mobile Phones," we can safely assume that these prototypes are not tablets.
So gas up the Mystery Van, and load up on the Scooby snacks. Looks like we have a mystery on our hands.
