Sony seems all set to rejig its smartphone business. Earlier in February, the company confirmed that it would be replacing its future flagship Xperia Z range of smartphones with Xperia X series. Now latest reports claim that the Japanese company is also planning to kill its Xperia M and Xperia C series. According to Sony Xperia blog, the company may replace these two smartphone ranges with its X series.
The blog, which quotes company’s leaked presentation slides, says that the upcoming Xperia Z, Xperia M and the Xperia C range of handsets will be replaced by the Xperia X smartphones, at least until the year 2018. The slides further reveal that Sony will be aggressively advertising the ‘X’ logo in all its promotions.
The blog also adds that this convergence of all the Xperia series in to the Xperia X marks the Japanese tech firm’s ‘Chapter 3’. The ‘Chapter 2’ was from 2013-2015 where the Xperia Z series made for the Sony’s flagship smartphones. The ‘Chapter 1’ was from 2010-2012 when Sony focused on “open OS for web communication.”
