    Sony is going to announce the Xperia XZ4 (or whatever it will end up being called) at MWC next Monday. As such, it's not really very surprising to see its predecessor, the XZ3 launched in the second half of last year, getting a price cut.

When the phone was released in 2018, it was priced at €799, with a subsequent price cut taking it down to €769. But its price now is by far the lowest it's ever been, so it looks like...

    You'll probably be hard pressed to remember, but before Samsung's onslaught of announcements today, Xiaomi also unveiled the Mi 9. This phone also has a transparent special edition, that for now will only be available in China.

The look is inspired by Alita Battle Angel, apparently, but there's another difference between this version and a vanilla Mi...
