Brazilian police value stolen prototype of Xperia C5 Ultra at $12M

If you think that stealing a prototype of an upcoming gadget is a piece of cake, think again, especially if you live in Brazil. Whoever was caught with a stolen prototype of the soon to be announced Sony Xperia C5 Ultra will not just be faced with jail time (we assume) but probably a hefty fine as well. That’s because they have valued the prototype not at the supposed market price but rather on the development cost of the device, which is at $12M.

User guide of Sony Xperia C5 Ultra surfaced

Before the Xperia Z5 or the H2 phones are unveiled, Sony is set to announce the Xperia C5 Ultra. This is the first time we're hearing about the new smartphone but we have some hint about its existence. Thanks to a user guide that recently surfaced, giving us an idea that the Xperia C4 now has a followup. Well, that's a quick one considering the C4 was only announced last month. Others are saying this could be the Sony Lavender but we're taking this with a pinch of salt.

Next premium flagship Sony H2 will be “Made for Bond”

If you're a fan of anything Sony and James Bond, then this news is a double delight for you. A promo image has been leaked over the weekend of what's believed to be a Sony-James Bond partnership. The next movie "SPECTRE" is launching this coming November and we can only assume that the next Sony Xperia Z5 or the Sony H2, one of the two premium phones the company is working on ia a phone "Made for Bond".

Sony to roll out two new premium smartphones

No official announcement yet but Sony is said to be introducing a pair of high-end smartphones before the IFA opens in September. Rumor has it that the devices will be part of a new series, which means they won't have the Z, M, E, or C in their names. I know some of you were disappointed about the Sony Xperia Z4 (aka Xperia Z3+ in other areas) but the new series could probably be the reason why there's no new Z model this year. Perhaps Sony was just busy with the new model that the company really didn't have the time to focus much on the Z series.

“My Xperia Theft Protection” (MXTP) is one of the new features found in the more recent devices of the Sony Xperia line – namely the Xperia Z4/Z3+, the Xperia Z4 Tablet, and the Xperia C4 and Xperia M4 Aqua. MXTP is unique in such a way that it offers bootloader level security to your device – in layman’s terms, this will not allow a thief to just wipe your device clean or flash a new ROM without knowing your Google login.

Sony Mobile CEO Totoki reiterates commitment to smartphone business

Some people have said that 2015 seems to be a low year for Sony Mobile, especially with the generic reviews the Sony Xperia Z4 has received – and this coming from a year of loss in 2014, despite the success of the Sony Xperia Z3. There were rumors that Sony was contemplating selling its mobile business, but Sony Mobile CEO Hitori Totoki has promised that Sony will “never ever” sell or move away from the smartphone arena.

Sony’s Xperia Z5 rumored to launch September, Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM inside

The reviews for the Sony Xperia Z4 were pretty underwhelming, especially with that weird “Japan only” market release. We kinda understand it now, in the wake of the overheating troubles of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. We want to believe that the stories are not true, but all evidences seem to prove otherwise. That may be the starting point of this new rumor that Sony will put out all Xperia Z5 devices in September – that is, the Sony Xperia Z5, the Xperia Z5 compact, and the Xperia Z5 Ultra.
