The Sony Xperia Z hit the market back in January, and with four million sales under its belt has been one of the most successful Android phones of the year, so Sony Mobile has certainly got off to a good start in 2013.
The Sony Xperia Z is by far the most impressive offering to date from the Japanese manufacturer. The device packs plenty of high-end features, ranging from a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, 13.1 megapixel camera and Android Jellybean operating system, along with an outstanding display which measures 5 inches and boasts a resolution of 1080p. Furthermore, the handset is set apart from the competition thanks to its IP55 an IP57 certifications, meaning that the handset is dust proof and waterproof.
Despite increasingly impressive competition, it seems likely that the Xperia Z will remain one of the most popular smartphones throughout the year. However, Android Authority has recently revealed that Sony appears to be gearing up for the launch of its next flagship phone.
The website has posted images of a device called the Sony Xperia A, along with a basic list of features. The website reports that the Xperia A will share a number of features in common with the current flagship, including its display and camera. The device also comes 16 GB of storage, but will be set apart by a removable 2300mAh battery. Unfortunately, there is little information available regarding other features of the Sony Xperia A, or it’s possible release date.

In terms of software, the Xperia A will of course utilise Android as its operating system, but with rumours of the nearing announcement of the next version, it would be reasonable to expect the Xperia A to come with the latest instalment of the Google owned operating system.
The ongoing success of the Sony Xperia Z, as well as a number of other entry level and mid range Xperia phones, we are likely to hear more details about Sony’s next flagship in the near future, so we will be sure to report back when we hear of any developments.
