Every once in awhile, a phone or gadget or device will come along that will completely rewrite the rulebook. You probably remember a lot of them from the game-changing likes of Apple’s original iPhone to the big revolution of Samsung’s first Galaxy Note.
The Sony Xperia XZs, though, isn’t one of them.
Just only a month after its announcement at MWC 2017, Sony has finally introduced its new Xperia XZs and Xperia XA1 smartphones in Malaysia. These are the latest from Sony’s new Xperia X series which aims to take photography to the next level.

It has been a while since Sony released a new budget smartphone. After a year of focusing solely on the X series, Sony has just announced the Xperia L1. This looks like an overdue successor of the original Xperia L from 2013.
Sony launched a whole bunch of smartphones at MWC17. However, not all of them will be arriving in Malaysia at the same time. During my interview with Sony, they revealed that only the Xperia XA1 and XZs will be part of the first wave.
Today, thanks to a reliable tipster, we may have the official Malaysian pricing for both these handsets.
After a rather boring 2016, Sony Mobile wants to make a comeback with its new Xperia XZ Premium. Instead of rehashing the same product with minor hardware updates, Sony wants to stand out as an innovator by introducing a couple of firsts for a smartphone.
Sony may not be as great as before when it comes smartphones but they are definitely in the forefront of mobile photography with their range of camera sensors. You can find them in most flagship smartphones from Apple, Huawei and Samsung.
As everything looks dramatic in slow-mo, Sony is turning things up a notch with their brand new 3-layer CMOS sensor that shoots full HD 1080p videos at an incredible 1,000 frames per second. That’s crazy fast and Sony claims it is 8X faster than conventional image sensors.
Sony Mobile will be making its usual showing at MWC 2017. Apparently, they have sent invites for the event that’s happening on 27th February at Barcelona. With Sony having just one proper flagship for 2016, we expect them to continue the same trend again for this year.
Sony Malaysia has reduced its pricing on two of its Xperia XA series. The Xperia XA which was originally priced at RM1,199 is now going for RM999 while its bigger selfie-centric brother, the XA Ultra is now reduced from RM1,699 to RM1,499.
In modern times, Sony Mobile is king of the compact smartphone market. Nobody really makes flagship-tier Android smartphones that are smaller than 5 inches anymore. Sony dominated because their compact devices were only smaller than their full-sized counterparts in size, not performance.
However, with the recent release of the Sony Xperia X Compact here in Malaysia, some are fairly disappointed with what the handset has to offer.
Great smartphones are getting affordable and affordable smartphones are also getting pretty great. These days, with the number of premium flagships launching in Malaysia sporting excellent specifications for a bargain price, we thought we’d throw together a list of high-end flagships that won’t break your bank.
