An early start in sunny Barcelona that’s delivered an astonishing collection of new tech to sink our teeth into.

With details on Xperia™ Smart Products and FOUR additions to the X Series, we’re going big on innovation in 2017.

So first up, the brand new Xperia XZ Premium, not only Sony’s most powerful and advanced smartphone to date, the very first handset to feature both a 4K HDR display as well as super slow motion video capture*. Super fast download speeds and various intelligent features, with the incredible Motion Eye™ technology also present on our second new handset; the Xperia XZs.

Two more new handsets came in the shape of the Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra, both of which deliver superior photography capability for these super mid-range heavyweights.

Xperia Projector evolved into…Xperia Touch! Originally announced within the same walls twelve months ago, this unique box of tricks has gone from concept to reality and turns any flat surface into a 23” HD touchscreen enabling families and friends to gather, enjoy and interact with a host of incredible features.

Xperia Ear Open-style CONCEPT delivers yet more innovation. While still a concept it’s based on “open ear” technology allowing users to listen to music and receive notifications whilst simultaneously hearing sounds from the world around you. It’s built to reimagine everyday communication and it’s really something we can see huge potential in.

So there we have it, talking to you from a frantic backstage pressroom, it’s over to you to get involved read up and as always shout with any questions over on our @SonyMobileNews Twitter page.

Until next year MWC, you’re still awesome.
