Flagship phones from well-known brands might be launched at the Mobile World Congress 2016. None of the smartphone manufacturers have confirmed anything yet. So MWC 2016 may be full of surprises this year. Even though there are no confirmations, the speculations and rumors never stop. One such rumor is that Sony Xperia Z6 release date is set during the MWC.


Sony has started sending out invites for Mobile World Congress. The company’s press conference is scheduled on February 22, 2016. If rumors are to be believed, Sony Xperia Z6 release date for the UK is the same. We cannot deny the chances that since most of the brands only made announcements at the CES 2016, Sony will also announce the device in February. The actual launch may happen at the IFA which is set for September this year.

PC Advisor predicts that the Xperia Z6 price may be somewhere near that of Xperia Z5 series. About the price, PC Advisor wrote in its post, “Predicting the price of the Xperia Z6 shouldn’t be too hard since most of Sony’s flagship phone launch at the £550 mark. As for other versions (if any are made) such as an Xperia Z6 Compact or Xperia Z6 Premium, we would expect them to match the Z5 range at around £430 and £630 respectively.” No predictions have been made either about the Xperia Z6 release date or price for other markets.

Let us see what Sony may offer us for £430 and £630. The devices will again be waterproof, which is good news. Like other Xperia phones, Xperia Z6 will sport a 5.2-inch display. As Sony is working on bringing 4K screens to almost all its products, Xperia Z6 may also become one of the 4K gadgets.

Most high-end smartphones that have release dates set this year may be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 chipset. We can expect the same from Xperia Z6. This will enhance the picture quality of Xperia series further. The memory is expected to be 3 to 4 GB.
