Posted on my Site and form the source at Xperia Blog (can't post links, too noob) it has been moderately leaked that Sony is prepearing to release two more high end devices this year. Something I, as an Xperia Z owner, am not happy with.

Code names 'Togari' and 'Honami' sources suggest that these are in active development right now and could see launches in Q3 and Q4 this year.

"Togari" which is believed to sport a 6.44-inch 1080p display with a design similar to the Xperia Z. It is believed to be very slim (much like the Xperia Z and Xperia Tablet Z) with a glass back.
 There will at least be a white colour option with a white bezel. This should appeal to those who like the all-white look of the Xperia ZL versus the Xperia Z version, which has a black face and white side/rear. The phone (or phablet if you prefer) could be launched as early as July in Japan. "Honami" which is believed to be the company’s ‘One Sony’ model – offering the best Sony tech in one chassis. Honami is believed to sport a 5-inch 1080p display, dedicated Walkman audio chip (S-Master MX Digital Amplifier?) and a 20MP Cyber-shot CMOS sensor with Carl Zeiss lens.



Thoughts? I am personally not happy that this could be a reality and leaves me wondering if Sony will ever have any sort of Solid flagship like Samsung does.

Predictable, they've done this every year for like the past three years. Also predictable the delay in the promised 4.2 update from Sony based on their past performance. Every year I want to believe differently about them, so far Sony have yet to show me why I should.

Starting to feel the same I have had a Sony Flagship for 3 out of the last 4 cylces (X10, Arc and now Z) and yea every year they say they are turning a new leaf, and they do something small to make me beleive it like unlokc bootloaders or make AOSP but then ruin it with something like this..

for the past month I've been happy at the knowledge that I own on fo the most powerful devices going, and that it is SOny's pride and glory.Nope not any more

simply sounds like a cleaver investor related PR piece.
It says "looking at launching". If you think about it... Q3/Q4 is a vauge 6 month period. By the time it his NZ market your looking at either Q1 or Q2 2014 (which is 12 months from about now). Whats the big deal?

The S took its time and it was almost 2 years later the Z arrived.
