Sony has some big news to share next week. The company recently revealed plans for an announcement on August 3, though it’s unclear if that means a new phone or something else entirely.

There’s nothing in the tweet above that confirms plans for a new smartphone. It is coming from the Xperia account, however, which suggest we could be getting a mobile device of some sort. Then again, we might end up with a photo-focused app instead or even a new accessory.
If Sony is planning to announce a phone, we assume it’s the Xperia C5 Ultra. The rumored device has been leaking a lot this week, suggesting an official unveiling is just around the corner. We’re expecting the new handset to feature a 5.5-inch 1080p display with an edge-to-edge design. It may also pack 13-megapixel cameras in the front and back, which lines up with Sony’s emphasis on mobile photography. Other rumored specs include 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a microSD card slot.
The Xperia C5 Ultra sounds like a pretty sweet device, so hopefully that’s what Sony has planned for next week. We’ll be sure to let you know what the company unveils once the news hits on Monday.
