This will be the Sony NW-A100TPS Walkman which will spot the 40th anniversary logo on the back and will be presented in a case designed in commemoration of the occasion. There will also be a special cassette tape interface to spark a hint of ‘nostalgia’ to the Walkman.
The new Walkman will be supported by Android with an S-Master HX digital amplifier for listeners to enjoy high-resolution audio without too much distortion. There is also a USB-C port for connections.
It will also include a DSEE HX processor to upscale compressed audio and even a vinyl processor to produce the nature of vinyl into digital tracks. The Walkman carries a 26-hour-battery life, higher than most smartphones. As of now, the release date has not been announced yet.
