    Sony's IFA 2014 event is in full swing, but Sony having the varied interests that it does, it got started with some non-smartphone hardware, showing off its latest cameras. But it wasn't long before the company transitioned into something a little more up our alley, revealing the latest Cyber-shot lens-style camera accessories for its smartphones and tablets. Yesterday we saw a leak detailing one of these products, the QX1 with its support for removable lenses, and now we see it joined by the new QX30, as well, a model we previously heard rumored earlier this summer. While the QX1 supports ...

    The Sony event at the Berlin IFA 2014 is just hours away, and the leaks keep on coming, trying to anticipate even more of what we'll probably see. Yesterday we've seen an alleged picture of the Sony Xperia Z3, with a spec-sheet glued to its back; that piece of paper, among specs, also mentioned a copper flavor, alongside black and white, and it's that exact new variant seems to have leaked today, in the images above and below. There's little to see here, aside from the new copper Sony Xperia Z3, but the image below also seems to feature a fourth color; call it yellow, green, or lime, it ...

    Though it tends not to get the most media attention at IFA – Samsung has been stealing that spot for a bit now with its glamorous unveils – Sony almost always has quite a lot of things to show off at the Berlin trade show. This year is no exception, and the count for what the OEM plans to announce currently stands at seven mobile-related devices. That's quite a lot, so we were quite eager to get all the info in one place. So we went ahead and created a full rumor roundup for Sony's IFA 2014 announcements. Xperia Z3 Without a doubt the most anticipated product of this year's IFA is the ...

    One year ago, back at IFA 2013, Sony introduced two unusual smartphone accessories, a pair of relatively high-end cameras that attached to existing handsets (or even tablets), giving them the sort of large lenses and optical zoom capabilities normally reserved for stand-alone dedicated cameras: its QX10 and QX100 Cyber-shot lens-style cameras. The big, bulky add-ons clearly weren't for everyone, but we were still intrigued to see Sony innovating in a space like this; love them or hate them, there just weren't any other products quite like these out on the market. This year, we've been ...

    Sony should unveil its next flagship, believed to be the Sony Xperia Z3, at the upcoming IFA 2014 in Berlin. All the rumors and reports seem to agree on this, and the company itself has started teasing, however, without a specific mention of the phone itself. The picture above is allegedly one snapped off of a real-life unit, which seems to have a sheet glued to its back with the Xperia Z3 specs. While the accuracy and veracity of the picture itself can't be verified, the specs we're seeing seem credible enough. We're looking at a 5.2-inch 1080p TRILUMINOS display, quad-core Snapdragon ...

    Ever since the launch of the Sony Xperia Z, the company has dared the odds of what a water resistant smartphone should look like. At times when the only thing that was water resistant looked like a tank, Sony showed us that there are smarter ways to bring water resistance to the masses. The company continues to push that bar today with is Xperia offerings, and with its recent teaser for IFA 2014, things seem to just get better. We know that the company is planning to announce its Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact at IFA 2014. If you're wondering how the company plans to differentiate ...

    We already saw Sony's alleged wearables plans for IFA 2014, but that's not all we're going to see liked before the big event it seems. In a massive leak today, the Sony IFA 2014 plans for the Xperia line have presumably leaked in their entirety. First off, let's talk Xperia Z3. This one isn't much of a surprise, as it has been rumored for quite a while, but we have some pretty solid details about it this leak around. There's apparently going to be a 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 5.2-inch Triluminos display. There will be IP68 certification for water and dust ...

    Quite a few smartphone manufacturers have been hinting at their IFA 2014 product launches, if not outright spilling the beans, and while Sony got off to a slow start, it's recently been really stepping-up its efforts, most recently delivering a teaser video featuring the silhouettes of three devices, presumed to represent the Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, and Z3 Tablet Compact. Today Sony's UK Twitter account released a new IFA teaser, but this one's proving to be a bit harder to figure out. That's it up above, and as you can see, we appear to be getting two of the three dimensions for one of ...

    Last fall, Sony was talking about its global strategy for smartphones, and how it dreamed about working its way up through the ranks – not necessarily with lofty goals of dominating the industry, but maybe settling-in to a third-place spot, behind giants like Samsung and Apple. But in order to keep sales moving, the company decided to turn its attention away from certain markets it deemed just too competitive, including the US. In the time since, we've anxiously been checking out rumors that suggested Sony might be loosening-up on that stance, and while plenty of evidence seemed to point ...

    As we just looked at in our IFA 2014 Rumor Roundup, Sony's got quite a few new devices we're expecting to see launched next week. Those range from phones, to tablets, to wearables, to accessories, and a relatively consistent stream of leaks has been slowly feeding us information about many of them. But in contrast to companies like Samsung or ASUS, which have been delivering IFA teasers that outright identify their upcoming products, Sony's been keeping relatively quiet. Sure, we got some general hints from its invitation itself, but nothing really specific. Now the manufacturer is finally ...

    Who's ready for a little Funkausstellung? We're about a week away from the start of IFA 2014, where mobile device manufacturers from all around the world will descend on Berlin to show off their newest products. The F in IFA –Funkausstellung– may translate as “radio show,” but the expo has evolved far beyond its early audio roots to feature the very latest in smartphones, tablets, and wearables. The Pocketnow team will be on the ground in Germany to share with you everything IFA 2014 has to deliver (or at least, everything worth seeing) but before we send our boys abroad, we wanted ...

    Usually, when I hit Publish on a review, I've had enough time to mull over the words and reread everything enough to be completely certain of everything I wrote. And if I question anything, I can just grab the phone, double-check my thoughts, and reassure myself that I got it right – right then and there, firsthand proof. In all the phones I've reviewed, there was only one time I can recall that I hit publish and immediately wanted to take it back. It wasn't that I was unsure of what I had said. It was that, no matter how certain I was, I didn't want to believe what I wrote. I remember ...

    IFA 2014 is just a couple of weeks away, and in addition to Sony's press invitations for its press event, we also got a small teaser yesterday that shows us the Sony smartwatch and Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact that are in the works. The biggest problem with these smaller tablets is that they're also mini on the spec sheet, though we do know that Sony doesn't abide by this standard. If you're wondering if this Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is for you, we've got some details on its probable specifications. Asian sources claim that this tablet will sport an 8-inch Triluminos screen with ...
