During the past couple of years, Samsung and Apple have dominated the smartphone market by a very wide margin. Although a number of notable handsets have been released from manufacturers such as HTC and Sony, Samsung’s Galaxy and Apple’s iPhone lines have continued to dominate the market.
There have been plenty of Xperia handsets released by Sony have the last couple of years, and although the range includes a number of impressive handsets, these have been unable to compete with bestsellers like the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Apple iPhone 4S.
However, Dennis van Shie, head of sales and marketing for Sony Mobile has stated in an interview with Financial Times Deutschland that Sony will soon be launching a direct rival to these bestselling handsets. He stated “In the near future we’ll finish a flagship model, which will be able to compete with Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S III”.
This is very exciting news, as more and more people are now seeking alternatives to the market dominating iOS and Android powered devices. Added to the fact that the recently released Nokia Lumia 920 has become more popular than most people expected, this looks like Sony’s upcoming handset will be a popular choice.
