Sony’s Xperia line has been headlined for the last three years, but with the launch of the Sony Xperia X series at Mobile World Congress, the Xperia Z5 will be the last in the series.

Sony has announced the end of the line in a statement to Xperia Blog, saying:

The Xperia Z line has reached its culmination – Xperia X series represents a new chapter and evolution of our product strategy. Whilst the Xperia Z series was all about bringing the best of Sony’s advanced technologies to smartphones, Xperia X series is based on bringing smart, adaptive Sony user experiences across camera, battery performance and hardware / software design.

Sony’s Xperia Z line has delivered some high quality phones, but obviously Sony is heading in another direction with the Xperia X phones. The Xperia X line ditches the glass back that’s held back a number of users, going for a premium brushed aluminium look on the rear.

Sony will be bringing the Xperia X series to Australia later this year and we’ll be getting more information on models, pricing and availability closer to the launch. In the meantime, check out Chris’ hands-on look at the Xperia X and Xperia XA at Mobile World Congress earlier this week.
