Sony’s 3 New Walkman Coming Later This Year

Sony’s 3 New New Walkman Coming Later This Year

Sony kept the Walkman name by including it in some of its smartphones when it still partnered with Ericsson. The Walkman series is still alive as Sony has now fully embraced digital music. The Japanese company has released a number of digital audio devices under the name and even a pair of Bluetooth earphones. This year Sony launched the NW-A35 Walkman, a portable Hi-Res digital player that fits into your pocket. New reports say it is adding three later this year.

The new Walkmans are the NW-A45, NW-A46, and the NW-A47. All three of them have passed through the FCC already. The FCC sheet doesn’t reveal much but the main difference among the three is the built-in storage. The A45 will have 16GB, the A46 doubles that to 32GB, and the A47 maxes out at 64GB.

The source revealed is that the new models will feature bigger batteries than the NW-A35 released in February. The A35 has 45 hrs of playback time. It will enable one to have the Walkman work for full 2 – 3 Weeks with a single charge which the smartphones aren’t yet capable of. The NW-A35 also comes with NFC and Bluetooth for connectivity, so expect them in the new models too.

In the last week, a Chinese leakster had revealed that Sony’s upcoming flagship would be featuring a 6-inch bazeless screen from JDI display. It will be offering an aspect ratio of 18:9.

Since various smartphone OEMs like Samsung, Apple, Huawei, and Xiaomi have their own chipsets, it may not be surprising if Sony introduces its own SoC at IFA 2017. There is no information available on the specification of the mysterious Sony chipset.

Sony To Launch A Bezel-less Flagship Phone

Sony To Launch A Bezel-less Flagship Phone

A new rumor emanating from China has hinted that Sony is likely to launch a bezel-less smartphone at IFA Berlin 2017. Sony announced the Xperia XZ Premium at MWC 2017 with a nearly bezel-less design with bezels at the top and bottom but the new flagship which is said to launch at IFA will come with a large bezel-less display.

The Weibo post referred to JDI’s announcement earlier in June that they have started the mass production of their Full Active display technology. JDI(Japan Display Inc.) was formed in 2012 through the consolidation of the display panel businesses of Sony, Hitachi, and Toshiba and had announced the Full Active LCD display technology last year.

It is safe to say Sony is preparing something big sometime soon since it is the most active in the smartphone industry of the three which formed JDI.
