Sony Xperia 6 smartphone details

Besides, Sony has reportedly started working on a new Xperia series smartphone for 2020. The Sony Xperia 6 device recently listed on the GeekBench website with Snapdragon 765 SoC, 8GB of RAM. The device is likely to be the company’s first 5G smartphone.

Sony was one of the earliest adopters of Google’s Android mobile operating system, but its products are not the leaders in the smartphone industry anymore. Sony, in general, has lost out to Apple and Samsung in the premium smartphone.

While in the mid-range segment, the Japanese technology giant has conceded to Chinese smartphone makers including, Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo. Its disappointing smartphone sales have even led to analysts and industry watchers calling for the company to quit the industry altogether.
