Sony has recently proved that the Japanese company does not want to give up the smartphone market yet. Now it has become known that a new mobile phone will not be released after all, which many users would certainly have liked. But the reason for this is obvious.
<I don't think Sony Xperia 10 II Plus is coming after all
With the Xperia 5 II, Sony has proven that the company can still develop interesting Android phones that are not completely outdated, both technically and optically. That’s why we were already looking forward to the Xperia 10 II Plus, which was supposed to be released this year. It would have been a great mid-range mobile phone with a good price-performance ratio. According to new information from Japan this will not happen. Sony has cancelled the Xperia 10 II Plus. But the reason for this is understandable. Because according to the first plans, it should be a 4G mobile phone. Since almost all new devices are now available with 5G, the plans were thrown overboard
This step is disappointing, but absolutely understandable and shows that Sony really still has a lot to do with the mobile phone sector. If the company didn’t care, as it often seemed to do recently, they would have simply launched the phone anyway. Now a new model could be developed, which would be competitive due to 5G. Sony fans would have to wait a bit longer, but then they would get a future-proof and better smartphone.
<The current insider tip
In the last few days several positive news from Sony have appeared. The Japanese company wants mobile phone owners to use their devices longer. Thus, Sony is supposed to plan a replacement program for batteries of older mobile phones. Instead of 70 euros, the exchange will then only cost 30 euros. In addition, mobile phones should receive Android updates for a longer time. Since many mobile phones are still absolutely okay after two or three years and are often used longer, this step is of course welcome.
