Did you notice that Sony didn't give any press devices on launch day to Chinese blogs like Zhong Wen Ze, unlike last year?

They might have quit the mainland china market

In Singapore I doubt so, since there is no sign they are expanding to third party retailers and telcos. They don't even advertise it on billboards, tv, etc
Yeah, us Sony users machiam unicorns sia. Even telco staff did a double take when they saw my 1V

I wonder if this is why us Xperia 1V users wont have the 48mm zoom that they promised for us

Also, them promising 3 years of OS updates for the VI is interesting while no such promises made for the 1V

Just noticed that Sony SG actually list the length of support on the product spec page now.

1 VI and 10 VI = 3yr OS/4yr security
1 V and 10 V = 2yr OS/3yr security

:rolleyes:
This camera now also has a Telephoto macro mode, which is fixed at 120mm where it provides 2x macro magnification and can focus from as close as 4cm (it's manual focus with focus peaking aid).
The telemacro can range from 120-360mm , which means digital zoom already. And magnification is already very huge !! Loving it !!

Yeah. Highly quit china. The situation there is dire, not because of bad sales, but politics.

So they expect that those who want it will import from Hong Kong?

What politics? I don't see any major tensions between Japan and china right now

Hahahahahaha you should watch more of youtube videos regarding them. The situation there is bad . Plus they added another huge spanner , the updated national security law.

This greatly deters other countries from going there to do business already.
