When Android 11 was officially released back in August, it brought a lot of neat new features to phones. But as usual, the update hasn't rolled out to many existing handsets yet due to how different OEMs handle the upgrade process. Now Sony fans have something to look forward to, as the company has announced when a few Xperia devices will begin to see Android 11's goodies headed their way.
Most of us will be having a pretty quiet holiday this year, but if you want it to be even quieter, you might be looking for some noise-canceling headphones. If you want a pair, but don't want to shell out the big bucks, you're in luck: Sony's WH-XB900N noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones are on sale for just $118 ($60 off) at multiple retailers.
Sony may not be among the most popular Android OEMs, but that doesn't mean its phones are subpar. We called the Xperia 1 Sony's best phone yet in our review last year, and now you can pick it up from Amazon for just $550 — and that's not all. This bundle also includes the top-tier XM3 wireless headphones with noise cancellation
Bluetooth speakers are usually pretty portable products, but Sony's MHC-V13 puts more of a focus on producing sound than being svelte. With big sound, multi-color illumination, and a microphone input, this is the perfect karaoke machine. Normally priced at $249.99, Amazon has it marked down right now for just $198 — a $52 savings.
Big TVs are great and all, but we've got to draw a line somewhere, right? Currently, Best Buy has a 4K Sony Android TV on sale for $1,999.99. That's a full $600 off the MSRP. But it's freaking 85" of display — I mean, where are you even going to put it?
Google may have introduced Google TV earlier this year, but Apple TV has been around long before that. Problem is, there hasn't been any Apple TV Android app, and that includes for Android TV devices — at least, until now. Select Sony ATV models are receiving an update that installs the Apple TV app, which includes access to Apple TV+, Apple TV channels, new and popular movies, and personalized and curated recommendations. A month after its announcement, the app has now arrived in the Play Store.
Android phones have never really been known for exceptional camera quality when it comes to taking videos, but Sony is setting out to change that. The company's newest phone, the Xperia 5 II, starts shipping next month, and it purports to offer the world’s first 4K HDR 120fps slow-motion movie recording from a smartphone. Now Sony has partnered with a former Ubisoft director to release a short film shot entirely on the Xperia 5 II — and wouldn't you know it, it looks pretty darn good.
Sony has been producing excellent noise-cancelling headphones for years, and its latest high-end option is the WH-1000XM4. Despite its horrible name, the headphones offer incredible isolation and sound quality, and now they are at their lowest price yet: $278.00.
We're surging into another American winter and whether you live where the snow falls or where the sunburns won't stop, you'll probably be celebrating something outside for one reason or another. Why not grab Sony's SRS-XB33 portable, weatherproof Bluetooth speaker? It's up to $30 off today on Amazon!
Sony may not be great at selling smartphones, but it has been doing a pretty fine job of acquiring anime streaming companies. It bought Funimation in 2017, and now it looks like another deal might be closing soon that would bring Crunchyroll into the Sony stable at a price approaching one billion dollars.
