Sony may announce new Xperia smartphones on January 8

Three unannounced Xperia smartphones leaked online in the last couple of weeks: Xperia XA2, Xperia XA2 Ultra, and Xperia L2. Although we thought they will be unveiled next month at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, there's a small chance we're going to see them going live early next week.

Sony Mobile has just confirmed that it will be present at the company's main press event scheduled for Monday, January 8. Apparently, the team at Sony Mobile plans to offer us “exclusive news & updates,” which could only mean one thing: new phones.

Obviously, this could be just a big misunderstanding and Sony's mobile division wants to share some news about products that are already available on the market. Either way, we're going to tune in to Sony's press conference starting at 5 pm PST / 1 am GMT / 2 am CET, on January 8.

Best case scenario we'll learn more about Sony Mobile's plans for its Xperia lineup. Perhaps we'll be given a glimpse at what's to come both hardware and software-wise, so stick around for more on this one if you love Xperia phones.

Here's a prediction: Blah blah blah, it features these gsm bands and will be shipped to north America starting blah blah blah. It's always the same thing when I have cdma and they won't release it for it

They may or they may not. Never can tell about these things.

More like new TV update and camera rather than new mobile phone. The 25th of February on the phone screen is the clue.
