The Xperia XZ Premium and Xperia XZs
Sony showed off its two new flagship Xperia XZ series smartphones, including the Xperia XZ Premium, which is the first smartphone with 4K/HDR, powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 SoC.
Can’t show it off at MWC
As we thought, Sony will not be announcing its flagship Xperia smartphone at MWC this month because Samsung appears to be hoarding the chips.
Promising chipset at MWC
Sony has sent out the invites for the press conference at the Mobile World Congress and it is expected to launch a new version of Xperia X and Xperia XA. The Sony G3221 phone, which we expect to launch as the Xperia XA, features 16nm Helio P20.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 SoC will go down in history as a SoC that likes to overheat but it appears that Sony managed to solve that problem with its newest Xperia Z5 Premium and Xperia Z5 smartphones by using a dual heatpipe to cool it down.
OIS selfie cam?
Sony’s flagship Xperia Z4 is official, with a new Qualcomm chip, some nifty features, and a very familiar look.

30% cut expected by 2016
Sony is reportedly planning to cut 1,000 jobs in its mobile phone division. The latest round of cuts comes just months after the company announced it was laying off 1,000 people in the same division.
Good news for all Xperia Z users
