easier to disable a function like FM rather than make a new chip without it.

The Sony A50 walkman had its FM radio disabled in europe, but it worked in other regions.

My point is: why not let fm radio enabled?


Why does sometimes software has info of upcoming phones?

Imagine you're developing phone A and B simultaneously.

You want to save on dev cost so they will share the same software base code.

When it comes to the time of announcement you want to release phone A before phone B (could be that they are aimed at different market segments or simply that phone A is ready before phone B).

You can't be arsed (or don't want to spend money) to go back through the entire code base of phone A to remove any references to phone B specific items.

Phone A has code relevant to the unreleased phone B within it.

Because not all countries have the same regulations for FM radio and DAB radio. Much easier to disable the radio than to manufacture 2 or 3 or more different versions of the same phone, with one having fm and another having no fm. Simplifies the manufacturing process and even certification.

True, however, with the online radio apps. like Tune-In, you get podcasts built in.

I have the pre-released software of them
Anyway, something new for you guys.
PDX-223 now at mass production.
PDX-225 still at testing phase
PDX-226 the same
Wonder where PDX-221/222 and 224 at? Its a funny story, maybe for another day then.

I bet the 223 is 10iv. Older phones like xa1/1+, L2 and 10/10+ were available for sales on same day they were announced.

Why pro-i has larger motherboard than other? Is it to use to "take " heat away?
I saw teardown video, it got score 3/10, for example 1iii got 6/10 and 10iii got 7/10.

My guess on sony plans: obviously 10iv , 5iv and 1iv. Also new member of Pro lineup, Ace 3 and new phone between 10iv and 5iv.


Should I expect something like 586 or 686 for 10iv?

They make it so large to spread the components thin over the phone, because the camera module is so big and taking up space. Normally the board would be made small and packed with components. On the Pro-I, because the board is so large Sony using part of them as antennas too. Big PCB can help with thermal dissipation, but its not optimal and only a tiny scale.
Repairs on the Pro-I would be a b**** because everything is on the same board, one tiny oops and you have to replace it all. Also the big board are more prone to cracking/breaking when dropped or the phone bended.

I didnt look at the next gen 10 yet but dont expect anything new beyond a better 12mp sensor or a quad bayer 48mp one. The reasons Sony go with quad all 48MP -ish sensors on next gen 1 and 5 (one of the sensors is 50mp cropped into 48, then quad bayer into 12) is they want to keep the 12mp "experiences" from earlier Xperias, I thinks.
Obviously, I could be wrong so take this with some salts

This info matches the post from weibo in november.
She said 50 that outputs 48.
Also this new one with 0.9 micron.

It is said to see sony use leftovers from BBK. 😰

I guess that pretty much confirms it. They are going quad bayer. Why? Who knows but with the rumors that Apple is goin that route too i guess Sony doesn't want to miss out. Also it gives PRO-I successor a differentiating factor. All speculation on my part.
