Sony has officially announced its press conference for CES 2015 and also came out with a teaser video which suggests the introduction of an ultra-thin Smartphone or tablet in the event. Rumours of what one may find in the Xperia Z4 are around but the fact that it will be much better than the Xperia Z3 can be easily understood.
HTC came out with its latest Smartphone – the One M8 this year, which though impressive lacks a bit when compared to its competitors.
