Another — slightly surprising — winner from the IPO: Sony Music.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 has many elements we've wanted to see for years: a bold new design, powerful innards and innovation inside.

Sony spent 2017 releasing pricey powerhouse cameras like the A9, but today the company announced one that sounds almost as good at half the price.
