As you may have heard, Mobile World Congress 2020 has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

But some of the press events that were due to take place over the period are still going ahead online. And Sony Mobile is one of the companies doing just that. 

We're expecting the launch of a couple of new devices, including Sony's first 5G handset, a new flagship and perhaps some mid-range devices.

When is the Sony Xperia 2020 event?

The Sony event will take place online on Monday, 24 February. The keynote will start at 8:30am CET.

  • San Francisco: 11:30pm Sunday PST

How can I watch the Sony Xperia 2020 launch?

Absolutely, Sony has confirmed it will be hosting a livestream for the event and you'll be able to watch that via the Sony Xperia YouTube account and we have embedded that video at the top of this story for you to watch.

What are we expecting at the Sony Xperia 2020 press conference?

We haven't seen a huge number of leaks surrounding Sony's plans, but there's talk of a number of different devices.

The focus is thought to be on a flagship-grade update, called the Xperia 5 Plus by some, which could be a 6.5-inch 21:9 device running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 hardware. This may or may not have a 5G variant. 

There's also talk of a Snapdragon 765 device, sitting in the mid-range.

We'll bring you all the details of these new devices as they are made public.
