For a while, Sony has bucked the trend of launching a new flagship smartphone once per year; instead choosing to release new devices more regularly at roughly six month intervals.
New phones all the time might seem exciting but it has meant that new models don't differ from old ones very much. The strategy was a mistake with the Xperia Z3+ which was confusingly called the Xperia Z4 in Japan. It was almost identical to its predecessor and suffered from overheating issues. When it comes to the Xperia Z6, Sony could announce it at MWC 2016 which takes place in February making the six month gap between IFA 2015. However, this seems unlikely.
It seems that Sony has realised the six-month refresh cycle is too regular and in an interview with Sony Xperia PL one of the firm's designers gave a strong hint that the Xperia Z6 will arrive in the second half of 2016. Earlier rumors claimed that Sony to release its next flagship smartphone in the early 2016 at the MWC. However, latest information claims that Sony might release the smartphone in the second half of the next year, at the IFA that is scheduled on September 2016.
There is no report whether Sony will come up with a bigger and wider display for the Xperia Z6. However, there are possibility of having Triluminostm display along with Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The current flagship Xperia Z5 comes in three different models, the Premium model features a 4K resolution display. It is no longer a secret that the next year's most high-end Android smartphone will come with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 820 chipset inside. It is same in the case of Xperia Z6. The smartphone is anticipated to be powered by Xperia Z6.
The current flagship Xperia Z5 is packed with 3GB of RAM, well it is expected that the upcoming flagship will have 3GB or 4GB of RAM. On the software front, the Xperia Z6 will probably run Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The USB Type-C is pretty much acceptable for the upcoming Xperia Z6 smartphone. As many smartphones are now shipping with the reversible USB Type-C standard.Sony prides itself on long lasting battery life but we'd like to see the addition of wireless charging.
Currently,Considering the high-end feature the smartphone is expected to be priced around Rs. 60,000.
