Since Sony Xperia Z was launched a few years ago, Z series became the flagship of Sony. Sony continued to release flagships under the Z series. However, since the last couple of years, Z series is not doing as well as it was expected. So Sony has decided to discontinue the Z series.
This should not be seen as a bad news, as Xperia X series will replace the Z series. Sony have already launched 3 devices under the X series – Xperia X, Xperia XA and Xperia X Performance. Out of these, Xperia X Performance is the flagship.
“The Xperia Z line has reached its culmination – Xperia X series represents a new chapter and evolution of our product strategy. Whilst the Xperia Z series was all about bringing the best of Sony’s advanced technologies to smartphones, Xperia X series is based on bringing smart, adaptive Sony user experiences across camera, battery performance and hardware / software design,” said Sony Mobile in a statement obtained by XperiaBlog.
