We liked last year's Sony Xperia C5 Ultra, it was a solid mid-range device with a huge 6-inch screen, a slick near bezel-less design, and a good camera configuration. Inevitably there is going to be a 2016 refresh of the handset, the Xperia C6, and the first render of the smartphone has apparently leaked.

Sony has had a quiet start to 2016 on the mobile front, having a dead CES that was void of any smartphones, wearables, or tablets. So, we cast our eye to the Mobile World Conference (MWC 2016) that is kicking off at the end of February, does Sony have something planned for that event?

Sony's latest smartphones have been slowly trickling onto the U.S. market in recent week, of course virtually all in an unofficial capacity as Sony typically gives the United States the proverbial cold shoulder.

A week after the Sony Xperia Z5 arrived in the United States, its jacked up sibling the Xperia Z5 Premium has also made its debut.
