Sony teases three new devices ahead of IFA

Sony has teased plans for three new devices, set to be revealed at IFA in Berlin next week. The company is due to hold a press conference on 3 September, when it’s expected to launch new kit aimed at taking on a raft of new devices from rivals including Samsung and Apple.

In a clip posted to its official YouTube channel, Sony counts through three different devices, with a brief glimpse of a silhouette of each new gadget. The largest is expected to be the heavily tipped Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, while the mid–sized effort is believed to be the much–hyped Xperia Z3 smartphone.

That leaves only the smallest model open to speculation. It’s highly likely that this will turn out to be the follow up to the superb Xperia Z1 Compact, which was first revealed at January’s CES event in Las Vegas.

The video also points to all three devices having waterproof smarts and hefty battery life, something which should;d help to give it an edge over its main competitors.

As well as Sony, Samsung is expected to detail a string of new phones and tablets at IFA, with its Galaxy Note 4 taking centre stage. LG is also set to show off new handsets, while Apple is set to hold its own event on 9 September to show off its new iPhone 6 models. In short, September looks as if it’s going to be a busy month in the world of mobile.
