Sony Mobile France teases a new Xperia coming tomorrow

Sony Mobile France has just teased a new Xperia smartphone which is coming tomorrow morning. In a tweet made by Sony Mobile France, it says, “Une éclipse solaire aura lieu demain matin. Nous sommes déjà prêts… et vous ?” which translates to “A solar eclipse will take place tomorrow morning. We are already ready… and you?”

It can’t be said right now which Xperia smartphone they are referring to. Recently we saw Xperia Cosmo in alleged leaked with 5 MP front cam (along with LED flash), could it be Xperia Cosmos then (or is it Xperia C4?).

No specific info about the device has been revealed yet except its arrival date i.e. tomorrow morning. By looking at the pic. it seems a 5″+ display device.

[ UPDATE ] It seems it was just a hoax only. Sony Mobile GB has posted a picture of Xperia Z3, where they wanted users to take the pic of the solar eclipse happening through Xperia Z3.

Xperia Z3 Solar Eclipse pic

New Xperia coming

Below you can see the pic recently tweeted by Sony Xperia France.

Sony Mobile France Teases new Xperia

Below you can see the tweet made by Sony Xperia France.

At MWC 2015 Sony said they are doing good with the Xperia Z3 in market so not launching Xperia Z4 for the time being so expecting Xperia Z4 at this stage don’t make sense but if it is Xperia Z4 then it would be a pleasant surprise.

Xperia Z Ultra Photo Leaked from Sony Mobile France Press Invite in Paris on 4 July

Something big is cooking at Sony Mobile Communications now, yes this is the sound of  new range of Xperia smartphones as Sony’s first phablet. Xperia Z Ultra, rumored as Xperia ZU and codenamed as Xperia Togari‘s first teasing image has been leaked now. The image of Xperia Z Ultra which shows the side of it is from a Sony Mobile France’s Press invite which is going to take place in Paris on 4 July.

Sony Mobile France Press meet at Paris on 4 July 2013

The snapshot from Sony Mobile France Press meet invite at Paris on 4 July read as “Sony Mobile vous réserve une surprise de taille” which is translated as “Sony Mobile offers a big surprise“. It also read as “Jeudi 4 Juillet a 9h30” Paris 09 “N’oubliez pas de le noter dans vos agendas” which means “Thursday, July 4 at 9:30 am” Paris 09 “Do not forget to mark your calendars“. A pen has been used to write this, which may depict that Xperia Z Ultra as rumored till now will come with a stylus pen or pencil as an input device just similar to Samsung Note 2.

Check the Sony Mobile France Press meet invite below which rumored shows the first impression of Xperia Z Ultra or Xperia ZU Tograi in the photo…

Xperia Z Ultra Photo Leaked from Sony Mobile Press Invite in France

It surely depicts the launch of new Xperia product. No name has been mentioned but by looking at the pic it is speculated as Xperia Z Ultra or Xperia ZU Togari. This will be the first product in the phablet range from Sony which will be put against Samsung Note 3. Till now it’s just a rumor only. A few days ago we saw a press invite of Sony in the Germany which will be held on 25 June and Xperia Z Ultra pic leaked with cat on top with some specifications.

By looking at the photo leaked above, it is seen that the device or Xperia Z Ultra is definitely a phablet, with power button at side, earphone jack, volume up and down buttons just similar to Xperia Z. Camera dedicated button is also there at the bottom side. It looks very thin from side, we posted it’s dimension as 179.2 x 92 x 6.5mm. An uncertainty is there on the water and dust resistant capability of this phablet as you noticed that earphone jack is not covered up, it’s open. Well let’s see what it comes with as soon it is going to be unveiled.

25 June or 4 July is not very far, soon we will see the launch of Sony’s first phablet. Are you excited about it ? Yes we are…do let us know your views regarding this phablet.

  • Video capturing in 1080p is lagging very badly 🙁 The video capturing frame is not steady at all. Auto-focus is very bad in video capturing.  Frame rate reduced to 18frames /second. Data rate and total bit rate also reduced. Check the comparison of 1080p HD videos in Xperia SL Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware and Android 4.0.4 ICS firmware

Poor Quality of 1080p HD Videos in Xperia SL LT26ii 6.2.B.0.200 jelly bean firmware

  • Battery DRAIN is very severe on my Xperia SL LT26ii. Very bad it is actually.
  • As soon as I updated Xperia SL, now Wi-Fi connects but not able to surf neither any downloading is starting, the same case is there with the mobile data. Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware has very bad CONNECTIVITY ISSUES 🙁

How to Solve Wi-Fi and Mobile Data Connectivity Problem / Issue in Xperia S, SL , Acro S Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware ?

As I mentioned above about the Wi-Fi connectivity and mobile data connectivity issue in the firmware update, here is a solution. What you are facing actually is this that Wi-Fi connects but you are not able to surf anything and same is the case with mobile data. I also got the Error 927 in Google Play when I was updating any app via connecting Wi-Fi and mobile data. Also tried downloading the internet and MMS settings for the phone but unable to do so. After re-updating the software 3 times via SUS I found no improvement in the connectivity issues. What did I do ? I repaired my Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware again on Xperia SL LT26ii (India region) again by PC Companion. And it has solved my problem. Now my Xperia SL Connects very smoothly with the Wi-Fi and mobile data. Though the mobile data speed is a bit slow in both 2G and 3G mode, it may be due to any firmware bug. Lag in 1080p video capturing has also been resolved to greater extent but it is there still 🙁 Try repairing you Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware on your phone via PC Companion and see if the issue is still there if you still see the issue do let us know.

I am very often getting this error “unfortunetly coms.google.process.gapps has stopped working” on my Xperia SL after the Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 update so to resolve this got to settings > Apps > All apps > Tap on menu button > Choose “Reset App preferences” > Click on Reset Apps, now reboot your phone again. The issue should have been resolved now 🙂 If you have got the update in your region, please post your reviews in the comment section regarding this update.
