The Walkman refuses to disappear: Sony launches a new model for music lovers

The Walkman not only refuses to disappear, but is constantly updated. Recently Sony released a special edition of the TPS-L2 model, as well as completely new devices, such as the NW-A105.

There comes a new member in this family, NW-ZX700, which is equipped with Android 12 operating system. According to The Walkman Blog, it has an aluminum body, a five-inch screen, and a Qualcomm QCS4290 processor.

With regard to autonomy, the device will have up to 25 hours of playback. The Walkman will process the audio with DSEE Ultimate and DSD.

Its one weak point might be the storage space. Originally it had 64GB, but eventually had 47GB available for storing songs. If we keep in mind that one GB is capable of storing approximately 274 songs, then the memory demand will depend on the requirement of the person using it.

The NW-ZX700 will officially go on sale in Japan on February 23 for a price of JPY 104,500. This is equivalent to approximately 15,200 Mexican pesos at the exchange rate.

For now, it has not been announced whether the device will go on sale for the global market or if it is a product whose distribution will be reserved for the national or Asian market.

How is it different from a smartphone?

These are probably not the most impressive features on the market when it comes to smart devices. However, we should not forget the fact that the essence of this device is focused on being a music player.

The new Walkman model has two major drawbacks that set it apart from a cell phone: it has no SIM card slot and there is no camera. That is, you could not make phone calls or photos.
