Another week would have been survived. The CES in Las Vegas is now over, which is why there was only everyday news this week. The summary of the week is now here in TechnikNews Weekly.

Xperia XZ4 is likely to be unveiled at MWC 2019

Sony sent out invitations for a keynote at MWC 2019 this week. It is assumed that a new device from the XZ series will traditionally be presented there - in this case it would be the Sony Xperia XZ4. In addition, there are rumors about a presentation of the Xperia XA3 and Xperia XA3 Ultra.

Spotify hardware for the car

A year ago some suspected that Spotify would present its own hardware for the first time. In the end, we never got to see them. Now everyone is writing about the music streaming provider working on a gadget for the car. This should be connected to the radio via Bluetooth so that you can enjoy music from your Spotify library in this way. For the control there should be a number of buttons and "Spotify Voice", which should be a separate voice assistant.

Netflix is ​​raising prices

Existing prices meanwhile still see the usual prices. A day later it became public that the monthly amounts in the USA have finally increased. New customers and existing customers are affected here. It is not yet clear whether existing subscribers will also see more expensive prices at some point.

Apple Smart Battery Cases for the current iPhones presented

Apple launched the battery cases for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7. They looked like Apple's silicone cases, only they had a hump on the back. This was necessary because the battery was installed there, with which the runtime of the iPhone was to be extended. Apple has now shown such cases again, this time for the current iPhones. Little has changed in terms of design. Only Qi wireless charging functionalities are now on top.
