Sony schedules its IFA press event; get ready for some new phones

The past month or so’s been a relatively busy time for Sony and its mobile lineup, as we’ve tackled rumors looking not just at new phones, like the Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact, but also at accessories for those handsets, like a new lens-style camera add-on. While formal announcements could come at any time, the odds are good that the company’s gearing up for a big event at this year’s IFA expo in Berlin. Today we learn just when that will occur, as the company reveals plans for a September 3 press conference.

This time last year Sony had already teased its IFA event, but it would still be a couple weeks before we knew about the specific date (September 4, not too far off this year’s). When the day finally rolled around, Sony announced those first-gen QX-series lens-style cameras, as well as the Xperia Z1. It’s a bit shocking to realize just how young that phone still is, especially with the Z2 already out and us looking forward to a possible Z3 launch at this year’s IFA.

In addition to that hardware we’re specifically expecting, it wouldn’t be that surprising to see Sony introduce a new tablet and maybe even a wearable. And the company still hasn’t managed to shake off rumors of a possible Windows Phone model, even if that’s seeming less likely as time goes on.
