Sony Unveils New Smartphones, Audio and Imaging Products at IFA 2017


At the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin, Germany, scheduled to begin from Friday, September 1, Sony is set to showcase an array of its latest products, including the ZX1 smartphone, Sony's first wireless speaker with Google Assistant, and BRAVIA OLED TVs.

At the Sony press conference held on Thursday, in advance of IFA's official opening, Shigeru Kumekawa, President of Sony Europe introduced the company's newest digital imaging and audio products.

Mobile Communications Inc. then took the stage to introduce the latest products from the Xperia X smartphone series.

RX0 camera

The RX0 is a new digital camera that continues to feature the high-quality imaging capabilities that Sony has achieved over years with the RX series, while also boasting a robust and waterproof design -- all in an ultra-compact body. It also has the super slow motion recording capability to capture and replay fleeting moments of action in an impressive way (Up to 1000fps super slow motion can be recorded. Image quality approaches Full HD quality at 250fps in Quality Priority mode.)

In addition to using it as a single camera, multiple units can be combined to allow for multi-perspective shooting. Multiple-unit solutions, that stimulate creators' imaginations, can be realized using wireless or wired connectivity or wired connectivity.

The RX0 features 1.0-type stacked 15.3 MP (approximate effective megapixels) Exmor RS CMOS image sensor, and a ZEISS Tessar T 24mm F4 fixed wide-angle lens, enabling high resolution images to be captured. It is waterproof in depths of up to 10 meters, shockproof for heights up to 2.0 meters, and can withstand a 200kgf/2000N load.

RX0 will start to ship in Europe in October 2017, priced at approximately €850.

Wireless style "WF-1000X"

Sony also unveiled its latest Hi-Res wireless noise canceling stereo headphone models, succeeding the MDR-1000X, which was announced at IFA 2016.

Three new types of headphone model will be launched: the headband style WH-1000XM2, the behind-the-neck style WI-1000X, and the truly wireless WF-1000X. Each of these three 1000X series models boast noise-cancellation levels for Bluetooth headphones. They also come equipped with the world's first "Adaptive Sound Control", which recognize the user's actions and automatically switch the noise cancellation feature on or off, in accordance with the usage situation.

Users can choose one of three styles, all of which overcome the inconvenience of having to constantly remove the headphones in order to adjust the volume.

Also on display will be Sony's new h.ear headphones, which come in an array of new colors to match every lifestyle and fashion choice.

Sony also announced the launch of its new 77-inch 4K OLED BRAVIA A1 series in Europe. It uses Sony's 4K HDR processor X Extreme as well as Acoustic Surface technology that vibrates the display.

Also on display will be the LF-S50G, Sony's first wireless speaker with the Google Assistant built-in, set to make its way to markets in the United States, UK, Germany, France.

The "Gesture Control" feature allows you to adjust the volume or skip to the next track without directly touching the speaker, and simply by waving hand nearby. With JIS-compliant IPX3 splash-proof capabilities that make it suitable for use even in the kitchen, the LF-S50G reflects Sony's commitment to audio quality and ease of use.

LF-S50G is available in the UK, Germany and France from November 2017 priced at approximately €230. Pricing will vary by retailer.

Sony Mobile Communications announced three new smartphones: Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact in its flagship range, and Xperia XA1 Plus in the super mid-range. All models will be available globally from Autumn 2017.

The Xperia XZ1 incorporates premium features, including Sony's latest Motion Eye camera system, HDR 5.2" Full HD display and Hi-Res Audio.

There are many playful options to enjoy with 3D Creator, such as creating an avatar for use in the camera AR effects options, setting a live wallpaper, sharing on social media with your friends as a 3D sticker, or sending to a 3D printer to make it into a memorable keepsake.

The Xperia XZ1 Compact packs the power of Xperia into a compact form with a 4.6" display and features including Motion Eye camera, Hi-Res Audio, 3D Creator, and additionally features a new super wide-angle front camera which extends the field of view to 120 degrees.
