Somewhat unexpectedly, a new Sony Xperia smartphone model has just popped up on XperiFirm – a third-party repository to download Xperia firmware. XperiFirm does not host any files themselves, but replicates what they are seeing on Sony's servers. This normally only happens once the phone is due to launch within weeks.
Therefore, the fact that this new model – the Sony J8010, codenamed 'Sphinx’ – has appeared suggests Sony has a new phone to be announced very soon, perhaps even before the IFA 2019 tradeshow, which takes place in early September. Are you excited? What would you like to see in this new model? Let us know in the comments below.
Thanks Arvee and Raul!
