Sony posted a New Year’s message on its blog today— the general theme of the post included looking ahead to the future, but also looking back at all of the company’s accomplishments from the past year.
In terms of what’s coming down the pike, Sony plans to keep its “Omni-Balance” design as a major part of all of its devices— this scheme involves symmetry of parts, flat front and back panels, and a stylized outer trim.
The company also plans to keep the Xperia Z1 as its main flagship heading into 2014— the device has yet to land in the U.S., but a Z1 sequel could be unveiled at CES next week, so you’ll want to stay tuned for more information. (A miniature Z1 could also be released, but we’ll have to wait and see.)
Wearables seem to be in Sony’s plans for 2014 as well. A successor to the SmartWatch 2 is sure to come, possibly with an entirely new form factor and brand new features.
