Sony has launched a smaller brother to accompany its flagship Xperia 1. The Xperia 5 drops the screen down from 6.5-inches to 6.1-inches, but continues to offer premium features. The handset will be available to buy from next month, with pre-ordering opening in a couple of weeks. Like […]
Sony has today launched 3 new Xperia phones; the Xperia 10, Xperia 10 Plus, and a flagship Xperia 1. The latter comes with the world’s first 4K OLED display, with HDR and a 21:9 ratio display. Well, in fact all three phones have gone with the same 21:9 […]
