Sony recently introduced its new compact flagship—the Xperia 5 IV—and the brand now seems ready for a new gaming-centric device. Sony Xperia recently took to Twitter to announce a gaming product launch event. The event will be premiered live on the Sony Xperia official YouTube channel on September 12, at 9.30 AM IST.
By using the hashtag #BornToGame on social media, the brand has given some hints about the product. The tweet issued by the official Sony Xperia Twitter handle included a brief teaser video and the statement: “Born to Enjoy the Game Developed specifically for the use of professional gamers and streamers.”
It also said, “Were you born to game? Witness an evolution in player experiences for Sony’s Xperia”
Sony hasn’t produced a gaming smartphone since the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, though the upcoming model may revive the company’s gaming smartphone lineup. Therefore, based on the teaser provided by the Xperia social handle, the product could be a gaming smartphone. Or, it could be a gaming smartphone accessory. If the gaming product turned out to be a smartphone, it would face stiff competition from models like the Asus ROG Phone 5s, OnePlus 10T, iQOO 9T and others.
It can be seen that the teaser didn’t indicate whether the upcoming product would be an entirely new Xperia gaming smartphone or merely a gaming add-on for current Xperia models. We’ll have to wait until the launch event on September 12 for additional information. Viewers can set a reminder to stream the live event by clicking the “Notify Me” button present in the link provided by the company’s tweet.
