Sony NW-A100 Walkman with WiFi and BT 5.0 coming soon (update)

Sony NW-A100 Walkman

A new A-Series Walkman has appeared on the FCC, the NW-A100.  I had my doubts anything would appear since June and July had passed and nothing was showing up on the FCC.  Fortunately the new A-Series has popped up on the site today (August 1st) and it might be the best A-Series just yet.

Update

Looks like we have some model names


NW-A105 - 16GB
NW-A100TPS - Original walkman was the TPS-L2, so perhaps some retro colour scheme
NW-A106HN - 32GB with NC headphones.

While information is still limited, the FCC documents do shed some details.  We can expect the addition of WiFi 2.4/5.0Ghz, NFC and Bluetooth 5.0.  For now only one model is present on the FCC documents, the NW-A105 with no capacity information sadly, but I am guessing 16GB, but 32 or 64GB would be a nice surprise.




The device from the documents appears to be full screen unit with touch I presume as seen above and the design should differ from the current A50 model. This is great since this is the 40th Year of the Walkman and it would be great to see Sony bring something special this year for the A-Series. Wifi is 2.4ghz b/g/n, 5.0ghz a/n/ac (see below), so speed and distance should not be issues.  The addition of BT 5.0 is also welcome and definitely pairs nicely with new batch of Bluetooth 5.0 wireless headphones from Sony. Likewise with Sony moving onto USB Type C for their new wireless headphones, hopefully Sony will use USB Type C as well on the new A-Series. Unfortunately the documents do not mention what type of USB it is.

Sony NW-A100 Walkman

Introduction is probably at IFA 2019 with sales shortly after.  I suspect we might only be looking at either one model, NW-A105 and possibly only 2 colours, something similar to the recently announced WF-1000XM3 but I could be mistaken and with Sony offering various versions along with a few colours.  There is no mention of a microSD slot but I would hope Sony would retain such a feature.

If anyone has any more information, feel free to leave a comment or email via the contact page or my twitter.

  4. Amazon UK have a weird pre order page for the A45
    https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Sony-Display-Resolution-Walkman-Battery/dp/B0798LBBJW/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=sony%2Ba45&qid=1567706169&s=gateway&sr=8-3&th=1

    Just the black A45 but pre order by every seller.

    It could be a bug. Or a mistake when doing a Amazon page for a new walkman.
