Sony has now announced plans to introduce a new Xperia device later this month. The company confirmed the same via a Twitter post. Sony announced the Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III in April, followed by the Xperia 10 III. Following this, it was practically confirmed that Sony had completed the launch of new products for Xperia smartphones. But now it looks like the company may have another surprise in store.
Sony has revealed the date and time of the launch event. At this time, we don’t know if Sony is planning to launch a new smartphone or something else. Not much is known about the future Experia device, apart from the teaser image which is reminiscent of light falling on the lens of a camera.
The event is scheduled to take place on October 26, scheduled to start at 12 p.m. JST (11 p.m. TechToSee).

Over the past few years, Sony has targeted its devices for a particular niche audience. Earlier this year, Sony launched its Xperia Pro, a premium smartphone aimed at content creators and professional photographers and videographers.
The Xperia Pro is the world’s first smartphone with dedicated HDMI connectivity. The HDMI-In port allows users to connect the smartphone to any of Sony’s Alpha cameras or any professional camera that has an HDMI input. When connected to a camera with a micro HDMI, the Xperia Pro can be used as a 4K monitor. The smartphone comes with a 6.5 inch 21: 9 OLED display with 4K and HDR resolution. The Xperia Pro also packs three 12MP lenses on the back (ultra wide angle, wide angle, and telephoto).
