Sony adds the Xperia XZs to its Open Device Program

Sony has added yet another handset to its Open Device Program. This time it's the Xperia XZs. With older brother the Xperia XZ and the X Performance already on the list, it was only a matter of time before the newer flagship made its way to the program. Sony's support for the open source community is commendable, and this is more great news for developers hoping to play with custom builds of Nougat on their Xperia devices.

Xperia XZ and X Performance are the first Sony devices to get Android 7.1.1

Sony has been pretty quick with Android updates recently, at least for its highest profile handsets. The Xperia XZ and X Performance were the first Sony phones to see an update to Android 7.0 Nougat, and that was just 3 months after Google's Pixel and Nexus devices received it. Now, Sony is building on this good work by bringing the Android 7.1.1 update to both its flagships.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium to be released in June in Bronze Pink

This isn't the first time we've been through this rodeo: Sony announces a new device in 2 or 3 colors, then a couple of months later tries to grab back some headlines by launching it in a new color. This time we're looking at the high-end Xperia XZ Premium which made its debut in February at MWC with a Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, 5.5" massive 4K display, IP68 water and dust resistance, and a 19MP camera on the back that can shoot videos in up to a mind-boggling 960fps. And the new color in question is Bronze Pink.

The color is nice, but Sony's press release obviously contains a lot of graphical superlatives from Xperia Colour Designer (that's a job title, apparently) Satoshi Aoyagi.

[Deal Alert] Amazon is discounting unlocked phones from Sony, LeEco, Lenovo, and more by up to $125

Unlocked phones are great. You can take them to whichever carrier you desire, you usually have greater control over software modification, and you don't have to deal with contracts.
