5G and foldable phones were the talk of the town at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, with Almost every major smartphone manufacturer announcing Elaborate, futuristic products.
Sony had some interesting smartphone launches too however a foldable telephone was a no-show and there was not much talk about a 5G phone in its keynote either. However, the firm did have a 5G prototype Xperia phone on display in its booth, as well as Qualcomm’s booth.
The apparatus was reportedly shown off in the booths of both companies at MWC 2019, but it was at a casing so attendees could not get their hands on it. But, we don’t have any other details about the telephone regarding specifications or possibly a name.
Technology site Pocket-lint reports that the telephone is currently only known by its own internal name’AG-1′ and is not a commercial device, as it is only used for experience and network testing with key clients, as told to them with a Sony representative. The prototype unit was also a 5mm wave merchandise, in addition to encouraging the sub-6GHz band. “At the moment, by a rollout perspective, 5G just isn’t there. In 4G, you can nevertheless [get] greater rate in more places than 5G, in the present time,” said Adam Marsh from Sony’s global communications group.
It is too early to tell when Sony will really possess a commercial 5G merchandise to show off but it does not look like they are in any hurry, making sense. It will only be till next year or even beyond, before we actually see an exhaustive roll-out of 5G. By then, we are pretty sure Sony is going to have a device ready for commercial launch.
