As the MWC 2016 trade show is near, the mobile industry is expecting many big announcements from the key smartphone makers like Samsung, Sony, HTC and much more.
Ahead of this trade show we have seen many leaks and rumors about the upcoming flagship smartphone from Sony. The Japanese company is expected to announce its next flagship the Xperia Z6 at the press event scheduled at February 22.
Earlier this week, Sony has sent out press invite for its MWC 2016 event. The company has scheduled the event for February 22 at 8:30am CET (1PM IST).
