Sony Xperia Z series has been one of the best smartphones from Sony. It had the best camera smartphone, to be specific. If you have been a fan of this series, then here comes bad, extremely bad news for you. It is now official that Sony will no longer manufacture the Z Series. Why? The recently launched Sony Xperia X series is the answer.


Yes, sadly Sony has confirmed that Xperia Z series will be discontinued. It will be replaced by the Xperia X series. In a statement given to Xperia Blog, Sony said,

“The Xperia Z line has reached its culmination – Xperia X series represents a new chapter and evolution of our product strategy. Whilst the Xperia Z series was all about bringing the best of Sony’s advanced technologies to smartphones, Xperia X series is based on bringing smart, adaptive Sony user experiences across camera, battery performance and hardware / software design.”

Sony Xperia Z5 was the last phone of the series. Recently, Sony announced Xperia X, Xperia XA and Xperia Performance at the Mobile World Congress held at Barcelona, Spain. It was a hint to the tech industry that Sony Xperia Z is now dead and there won’t be any more devices added to the series. As there was no official announcement, the news was just a speculation. Now as Xperia Blog has released the statement given by Sony to the site, the news is confirmed.

Sony has always tried to bring the best in whatever they do. The sharpness, brightness, vibrancy of the devices is something else. Unfortunately, not everyone prefers these phones when it comes to branding, though everyone believes in the quality of products this company designs. We are sure the Xperia X series will be much better than the Sony Xperia Z series. So let’s just wait and watch until these new Sony smartphones hit the market.
