Sony has been somewhat unpredictable over the course of the last couple of Xperia Z smartphones as they seem to be doing what many said they wouldn’t be doing. It all started just after the Xperia Z4 launched as it was believed that Sony Inc was moving away from launching two flagships per year.
This was very soon dismissed as the surprise release of the Xperia Z5 months later which was more of a remake then an entirely new concept. This leads us into the present day with the Xperia Z6 believed to debut during the 1st ½ of 2016 and new Sony Xperia Z7 release date rumors.
With Sony once being one of the most prominent smartphone manufacturers globally it was believed they would be getting out of mobile manufacturing all-together, but now we know this isn’t the case with new rumors coming in on the upcoming Sony Xperia Z7. The Japanese mobile manufacturer has seen some new innovations in the past couple of Xperia smartphones, and the same is expected with the 2017 release of the Xperia Z7.
We’re now hearing something a bit more definitive as rumors suggest the Xperia Z7 release date will be during Q1 of 2017. While this has yet to be confirmed, it seems highly likely as Sony is looking to once again looking to become an industry leader. We’re hearing more power, and cooler processor, and a stunning 30MP are some of the goodies in-store for us.
It sounds as though the Xperia Z7 will make it to all markets worldwide, despite early rumors suggesting otherwise. Aside from the standard Z7, we’re also likely to see a Mini and larger Premium model. The Z7 could feature a 4K 5.2” display running Qualcomm’s 820 SoC on-board, along with a 30MP rear-facing camera.
We’re still holding out for the possibility of seeing the next generation Snapdragon processor, but the 830 SoC doesn’t look to be ready until the Z7 debuts. The Sony Xperia Z7 Mini is likely to be a smaller variant coming in at 4.6 inches while a Xperia Z7 Premium could be significantly larger with a 5.9” display.
We’ll still waiting for the confirmations, and as soon as we get more on the Xperia Z7 release date along with all specifications you can bet you’ll set it here first.
