Yes Z series was the best era than when X series came than
everything starts to go downhill.
XZ which I owned before, have number of problems especially
overheating which is disappointing.

Now I am using XZ1 so far so good but by the time I want to change.
Guess it won't be a Xperia phone.
XZ2 the chubby design I am not a fan of it that is why end up
with XZ1.

Anyway for now Sony stores are clearing stock as what I can see.
Upcoming MWC in February, let's see what Sony have to say
for Asia market. But don't put high hopes that XZ4 will come to SG.

Sony Mobile will be exiting the SEA market due to lacklustre sales and reduced operation costs..


The main markets that Sony Mobile will be operating in the future are:
- Europe
- Japan
- Greater China (Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan)

Sony Mobile will still target the United States market, but operating budget will not be as high as the above mentioned markets.

Sony Mobile may leave the Middle East market next, with reduced inventory count and no new devices being launched in the market.

As I suspected, whatever stock they have are ex-stocks so
no more stocks coming in.
Once they are cleared, that's it.

Guess I have to use my XZ1 until it die.

Here in SG is "popularity." Most will prefer Apple and Samsung than Sony.

My question to Sony SG about this, since they didn't reply
so meaning they may announced it than.

I switched to Huawei from my Xperia Z5, because Sony doesn't offer the Xperia XZ3.

Really liked the XZ3 design..

I think you meant same trends like US. Cannot see fruity and sammy phones selling well in China and India, where majority prefer chinese or cheaper brands.

You're wrong. Apple outsells Sony significantly in Japan. The other markets Sony is not even close to beating out apple and samsung.

And Japanese xperia s are always tied to a carrier and must be sin unlocked.

According to latest figures in 2018 at Japan, majority of mobile phone sales belongs to fruity and closely followed by Sharp and Sony.

Overall Japanese phones have bigger share in Japan over fruity brand, but not individually.
