Sony Xperia XZ2 vs iPhone X: how does Sony's best compare to Apple?

The stylish new Sony Xperia XZ2 comes with a higher, premium price and this time, it will not shy away from competing against the best and most expensive phones out there. And when we speak about premium phones, no mainstream phone is more expensive than the Apple iPhone X.

Sony Xperia XZ2 hands-on: up close with Sony's fresh, new design philosophy

It’s that time of year again, kiddies; Mobile World Congress is in full swing and with it comes a flagship phone announcement from Sony Mobile. Say hello to the Sony Xperia XZ2!
As you may have noticed, aesthetically, it’s quite a departure from Sony’s well-known and omnipresent rectangular, full-metal or metal-and-plastic designs. Instead, this year Sony decided to no longer resist popular trends, now integrating a back-mounted fingerprint sensor, an 18:9 display, and Gorilla Glass 5 on both sides, for the ubiquitous glass-meets-metal aesthetic found on high-end flagships …

Sony's new look: Xperia XZ2 leaks in shiny render, specs revealed by insider

Well, folks, MWC is about to kick off and we sure can’t wait to see what surprises lie ahead! Unfortunately, in the era of leaks and rumors, surprises are often ruined. And someone may have just spilled the beans on what Sony has in store for us.

Among the army of new gadgets, we expect to see the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact to come and refresh the line. Serial leakster Evan Blass, who is pretty spot-on with his information most of the time, has shed some light on what the phones would be like.

Sony's upcoming Xperia XZ2 Compact may have just popped up online

Despite the fact that Sony usually introduces new Xperia Compact smartphones in the second half of the year, a certain Xperia XZ2 Compact model has just appeared in a live picture next to a Xperia Z5 Compact.

Although it’s just a prototype unit, we can’t help but wonder whether or not Sony plans to reveal the new compact smartphone later this year at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018. The person who leaked the picture claims the final design of the Xperia XZ2 Compact may look different than what we’re seeing here, which is quite understandable considering this is just a prototype unit.

Sony's official policy: premium models get Android software updates for two years

Apparently, it is hard for most smartphone manufacturers to put into words their policy on pushing out Android updates. That leaves it to the consumer to try and guess how future proof his or her new handset is. Today, however, Sony decided to release its policy on Android updates for its premium and mid-range models. According to the company, the goal is to continue to update its top-shelf smartphones for a two-year period following the launch of a high-end phone. As for Sony’s mid-range handsets, the company said that it might decide against updating certain models if the hardware can’t provide …

Some of Sony's older wireless headphones, earbuds will receive Google Assistant support via OTA

Sony revealed a bunch of new wireless Bluetooth earbuds at CES 2018 just the other day, with a couple of these coming with built-in support for the Google Assistant, namely the WF-SP700N and WI-SP600N earbuds. Well, at least the support is there, but the actual Google Assistant will arrive at a later date with an software update.

That same software update will obviously transcend to some older Sony headphones and earbuds, as the company is on track to bring this trendy new Google Assistant functionality to its last-year tongue-twisters, the WF-1000X, WI-1000X, WH-1000XM2, WH-CH700N, …

Granted, Sony has already revealed three new devices, so we shouldn’t really collectively hold our breaths for another device. 
Or shouldn’t we? After all, this is Sony we’re talking about, and it never fails to surprise with an unexpected device launch …

If you’re waiting for Sony to announce new high-end
smartphones at CES 2018 later this month, you might be in for a disappointment.
