Sony considerably reduced its presence in the smartphone market. But that does not mean that the company set aside their plans for new appliances. A proof of this is the fact that the firmware of a new Xperia has appeared on Sony’s code repositories website. Although it’s not yet revealed.
A repository maintained by third parties called XperiFirm, responsible for storing the firmware of different Xperia handsets, revealed a new code of a model number J8010 and codename Sphinx. In addition to this information, the website entry does not reveal anything more about the alleged smartphone. It does not say anything about its specifications and even less about its design.
