Sony announced that its press conference at CES will be held on January 4 and will also broadcast the event online. The only image leaked so far shows a 5-inch handset with USB-C that is believed to come as a follower of the Xperia XA.

Although Sony is no longer a strong brand in the US as they used to be a few years ago, they will surely bring a few novelties at next month's consumer tech event that will take place as usual in Las Vegas, Nevada. Next to Sony, the list of big names in the industry expected to show up with new products includes Xiaomi, Asus, NVIDIA, Lenovo, and more will surely join them in the meantime.

Going back to Sony, we know that a 5-inch handset will be unveiled at CES 2017. Unfortunately, there is only one image that shows it, and the details revealed avoid any essentials - we know of USB Type-C, the size mentioned earlier, and the dimensions - 5.7X2.63X0.31 inches. This handset is expected to be a successor of the Xperia XA, but this does not say anything about its specs.

The leaked image does not show anything revolutionary, but maybe there will be more than meets the eye to this handset. Probably this handset will join the mid-range offering of the Japanese brand, but it is also possible we are looking at the next-gen Xperia flagship.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
