Even in the 21st century, a TV remote is still a very vital and very loseable item.

In Japan, Sony has solved this issue with the SRS-LSR100 wireless speaker, which doubles as a TV remote.

The speaker is actually for transmitting the TV sound to places further away than the telly, i.e. for times when you’re cooking in the kitchen but don’t want to miss anything.


It connects to the source via 2.4GHz wireless signal but can also take in other sources via an optical digital input.


There’s also a headphones socket onboard and the coolest thing is the numberpad goes up to 12.


It’s on sale in the Japanese Sony store for 19,800 yen ($105) but probably won’t make it out of its home country.

Posted by wicked August - 26 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off


If you’re a selfie addict and you live in India, you may want to listen up as Sony has just announced it will launch its latest selfie-focused smartphone, the Xperia C5 Ultra, in the region later this week. The handset will carry a price tag of Rs. 29,990 ($450) and will be available in black, white and soft mint colorways.

Seeing as this is model of the C5 Ultra is targeted at the Asian market, it will have dual-SIM compatibility on board. All other specifications remain identical to the original model, meaning the handset will pack a 6-inch Full HD display, a 1.7GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 13MP front-facing shooter and a 2,930mAh battery.

The device will run the latest version of Lollipop straight out of the box, but is expected to receive the Marshmallow upgrade when Sony starts distributing it next year.

Sony’s SmartWatch 3 gets a dedicated watch faces app

Posted by wicked August - 26 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off


Personalizing the SmartWatch 3 just became easier with a new app dedicated for watch faces. Sony has released an app that allows owners of its Android Wear device to change the background, hands, time markers, accent color, and display settings. So now is your chance if you’ve ever wanted to customize the SmartWatch 3 with unique watch faces.

The timing of this app’s release is interesting as new Android Wear devices are expected at IFA 2015. Despite its Play Store listing mentioning only the SmartWatch 3, Sony could easily extend support to another smartwatch with an update. The SmartWatch 4, assuming Sony sticks with the straightforward naming, would arrive alongside the Xperia Z5 to give the company a decent one-two punch this fall.

Sony Xperia Z5 reported dummy photos leaked

Posted by wicked August - 25 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

Sometimes, we really do wonder if these leaks are actual leaks and not just PR stunts from the OEMs to drum up publicity for their upcoming products. But either way, at least it gives us something to talk and speculate about as the release date draws near (supposedly). We’ve been treated to some leaked images of the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact’s promo image, but now we also have the supposed dummy unit of the Xperia Z5 as well.

The dummy unit will supposedly be almost similar in design to what will actually be released. The photos of course don’t show us the actual specs but can give us an idea of at least the design and the look of the new upcoming flagship. But if you’re interested in what will it be on the inside, of course nothing official, here are some of the alleged specs gathered from various sites. It will supposedly be running on an octa-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 810) SoC and will have either a 3 or 4 GB RAM.

It’s also hard to see from the images what size the screen will be, but there have been some reports that it will be Quad HD with a 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution. The all-important camera is rumored to be at 21.5 MP for the main cam with 4K video recording. No news yet on the very important front-facing selfie cam though.

Reports have said that the Xperia Z5, together with its other variants, will be launching at the IFA 2015 in Berlin next week. But if you base it on last year’s decision by Sony to not launch any high-end devices, then this is highly unlikely. The end of year launch rumors might be more on the mark. But we have a few more days to go before we can confirm anything.

Next Sony Xperia teased to have greater focus, to be unveiled Sept 2

Posted by wicked August - 25 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

Nothing much to say here but a new Xperia is coming. It’s not really a surprise because we’ve been hearing a lot of rumors and seeing a lot of leaked images lately including that of a rendered Xperia Z5 Plus having a 4K display, and the Z5 Compact having a fingerprint scanner. We also knew about a Sony announcement being confirmed for September 2 at the IFA event in Berlin.

Sony Xperia GB teased the public by posting a blurred photo of the next Xperia flagship device doing what it does best: take photos. Sony only said the smartphone will have “greater focus” and “all will become clear on 02.09.2015″. We’re guessing it will be an Xperia Z5 because Sony already used the Xperia Z4 name although it’s just an improved Z3 and is also known as Z3+ outside Japan.

So far, we know that the Sony Xperia Z5 might have 4K X-Reality PRO, fingerprint scanner, it’s “Made for Bond”, and will come with another premium smartphone. We’re guessing that it will feature a Quick Charge 2.0 since the old Xperia Z2′s was enabled recently with a simple hack. And since it’s slowly becoming a standard, we don’t see any reason why Sony won’t bring such charging tech to a new model.

I guess we’ll only have to wait and see for the gates of IFA to open. September is just around the corner so be patient, you’ll see the new-generation Xperia next week.

Sony teases greater smartphone camera focus abilities for IFA

Posted by wicked August - 25 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

SONY Brand Shot logo CES 2014-3

A few unofficial teasers and leaks regarding some upcoming smartphones from Sony have been gradually trickling out over the past couple of weeks, but now we have an official teaser from Sony Xperia GB. The tweet is all about some new camera technology, which the company appears to have planned for a new smartphone release taking place at IFA on September 2nd.

All of the references to cameras and focusing leads me to believe that the upcoming handset will likely make use of Sony’s latest Exmor RS IMX230 or IMX240 image sensor. The IMX230 features 21 megapixels, which is typical for Sony’s flagship devices, along with 192 point phase detection autofocus technology (PDAF), for faster and more accurate object focusing. Sony unveiled its PDAF and traditional contrast hybrid auto-focus technology with the launch of the Xperia M5 less than one month ago, which may also feature in this new handset.

Unfortunately, we can’t really see the phone because of the blur in the image, but the design looks the same as the company’s existing Xperia series, although the size perhaps suggests that a Compact variant is on the way. Last week, a press shot of the Xperia Z5 Compact leaked online and pictures from earlier in the month hint that an entire Xperia Z5 range might be on the way.

We don’t have too many other specification rumors to go on at this point. One or more of Sony’s upcoming devices may be making use of Sony’s 4K X-Reality display software and a fingerprint scanner is also said to be included.

The teaser leaves us with a date set for September 2nd, meaning that there’s a little over a week left to wait until we see what Sony has to offer.

Sony Xperia promises new phone with greater focus

Posted by wicked August - 25 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

sony xperia greater focusSony Xperia GB has tweeted that they will be bringing out a new phone with “greater focus” on September 2nd, 2015.

We can’t be exactly sure which new phone it will be, but we have heard a lot of rumors about the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact. The date of the announcement is also lined up very closely to the IFA trade show in Berlin.

Also, what “greater focus” actually means is unknown as well. Our best guess is some sort of new autofocus system for the camera.

Great smartphone cameras have been all the rage this year. It will be hard to beat the LG G4 or Samsung Galaxy S6’s cameras, but we will have to wait and see if the Xperia Z5 can do it.

Could this be the design of the Sony Xperia Z5?

Posted by wicked August - 21 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

Android Smartphones_Sony_Z5_E6xxx_082115Rumors and leaks of Sony’s Xperia Z5 flagship are beginning to heat up. We should expect the flagship to be announced as early as IFA 2015. With that date just around the corner, a new image has popped up on Twitter labeled E6xxx. E6553 is the model number for the Sony Z4, which gives us reasonable suspicion this could be the company’s upcoming Z5 flagship.

The image appears to be a case or chassis/frame schematics for the upcoming flagship. The design looks similar to what we’ve seen on recent Sony flagships like the Z3+ and Z4, but has some minor changes. Riccolo, posted one word to go along with the design, “comfortable.” Recent reports have suggested a new UI design overhaul that could make its way to the upcoming flagship, in addition to a more elegant and modern design. No specifications or official renders have leaked so one could predict the flagship will skip IFA 2015. If Sony does elect to announce the flagship at IFA 2015, you could expect press invites to go out shortly. We should find out more details about the upcoming flagships release date in the coming days.

Sony Xperia Z5 Compact photo leaks

Posted by wicked August - 21 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

Xperia Z5 Compact press photo

There’s growing anticipation that Sony is preparing to launch a new range of smartphones at IFA next month and a new leaked promotional photo (above) of what appears to be the Xperia Z5 Compact has added further fuel to the fire.

The design is reminiscent of the usual Xperia style, especially when it comes to camera lens, LED flash and logo placement. However, we can spot an adjustment to the power button and volume rocker, which appears to have been moved down to the lower right hand side of the smartphone. A separate leak of an Xperia Z5 case drawing seems to confirm this design, along with a E6XXX model number.

Xperia Z5 fingerprint scanner

The Xperia Z3 Compact is rumored to come with a fingerprint scanner built into the power button on the side of the handset, which may be an ergonomic solution to include a scanner while keeping a compact form factor. We recently saw a similar side-mounted fingerprint scanner design appear with the Huawei Honor 7i.

Other rumored specifications include a 4.7-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processing package, 3GB of RAM and a new 20.7 megapixel rear camera sensor, most likely Sony’s latest ExmorRS model, along with an 8 megapixel front facing camera.

IFA 2015 begins in the first week of September in Berlin and we will be there to see what Sony has to unveil.

Promo image of alleged Sony Xperia Z5 Compact leaks ahead of IFA 2015

Posted by wicked August - 21 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off


There isn’t long to go until the 2015 edition of the IFA opens its doors in Berlin, where we’ll most likely see Sony announce its new Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 compact handsets in a press conference on September 2nd. Until then, we can expect the flow of leaks to increase both in quantity and quality, and today we have a leaked promotional image of what is believed to be the Xperia Z5 Compact.

It isn’t the first time we’ve seen the Xperia Z5 Compact on show, having been previously leaked both here and here. A new button layout is believed to be on the cards, with the promo image showing the buttons to be situated rather lower on the device than one would normally expect.  The round on-off button that has been present on so many Sony devices in recent years is also believed to have been replaced with a fingerprint scanner.

The Z5 Compact would still appear to be sporting Sony’s almost customary OmniBalance design, and it’s thought to have a Snapdragon 810 SoC providing the grunt along with 3GB of RAM on tap for multitasking. It’s also expected to carry a new camera sensor, possibly the same 20.7MP sensor that its larger sibling, the Z5, will feature. The display resolution might be as low as 1280 x 720, although that would be a lot of horsepower for such a low-res screen.

What would you like Sony to unveil at its press conference? Personally, I’m really hoping the rumoured Xperia Z5+ is announced, but that’s just me.
