As they're running Android, Sony Xperia phones have now joined the Fortnite fray with HTC and Motorola phones and everyone else!
There are the basic Android 8.0 features such as notification dots, but then there are the Sony features that may get into future editions of Android.
It may be a year old, but the first-gen Sony Xperia XZ brings plenty to the table for your $305, including a 5.2-inch Full HD screen and Oreo on the way.
Available earlier this year for as much as $700, the unlocked Sony Xperia XZs currently fetches just $500 at Amazon, Best Buy and B&H.
Android 8.0 Oreo will soon roll out to a bunch of Sony Xperia devices, including the X, X Performance, X Compact, XZ, XA1 and XA1 Ultra.
It looks like those leaked hands-on photographs and CAD-based renders were spot on in capturing the familiar, unremarkable Sony Xperia XZ1.
The design of the upcoming Sony Xperia XZ1 holds no more secrets following two detailed new visual leaks, with a bunch of specs also revealed.
This G8441 has to be an IFA 2017-bound sequel for last year's Sony Xperia X Compact, with 720p screen resolution and a Snapdragon 835 SoC in tow.
Sony already promised a couple more high-end smartphones this year, and where could they be unveiled if not at IFA Berlin?
With model numbers G8341 and G8342, one of Sony's next-gen hero phones is set to follow the original Xperia XZ on the Full HD screen resolution boat.
The good news is the Snapdragon 835-powered, 4K HDR-capable Sony Xperia XZ Premium is finally launching in the US. The price is the bad.
Sony's "premium standard" smartphone line is apparently dead and buried, X Compact included, with two more high-enders instead in the works.
Once upon a time, not that long ago, priced at an absurdly high $700, the unlocked Sony Xperia XZ now goes for a measly $340 from a trusted eBay seller.
It's only taken Amazon a few weeks to mark down the unlocked GSM Sony Xperia XZs from $700 to $620 in black.
The Snapdragon 835-powered Sony Xperia XZ Premium that wowed back at MWC is still not actually up for grabs, but it may roll out in a few weeks.
Believe it or not, last year's Sony Xperia XZ and X Performance are receiving Android 7.1.1 goodies before this year's Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG G6.
With state-of-the-art cameras in tow, but only a 5.2-inch Full HD screen and Snapdragon 820 processor, the US Sony Xperia XZs feels slightly overpriced.
The Xperia XZ had top-of-the-line spec lines for 2016 and it did rather well for a little while, but it's not a blockbuster. It's still a hot deal, though.
Is the Galaxy S8 running out of buzz and wow factor now that the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is confirmed to roll out first with Snapdragon 835 inside?
The surprisingly hot new Sony Xperia XZ Premium tries to make 4K screen resolution happen again, packing a lot of impressive technologies... on paper.
Sony's 2017 flagship Android phones are likely still a ways off, but when they eventually come out, the XZs and XZ Premium should wow with their cameras.
Not only are Sony smartphones unprofitable or barely profitable these days, also selling in negligible numbers worldwide quarter after quarter.
In the market for one of Sony's two robust late 2016-released smartphones? Both the Xperia XZ and X Compact are now cheaper than ever before at Best Buy.
