Recent reports have revealed that the Sony will be announcing the Xperia XZ2 Pro and Xperia XZ2 smartphones at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 later this month. It is also speculated to announce a small-sized Xperia XZ2 Compact smartphone with flagship specs. A new filing with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. shows that the company has sought permission to redesign one of its upcoming Android phones.
On Feb. 7, Sony had approached FCC to dismiss its grants for an upcoming device that has an FCC ID of PY7-00718V in order to change its design. However, there is no information available on what sort of design change Sony wants to do on its upcoming phone. The device has already bagged FCC certification, but since it hasn’t been launched yet, the telecom regulatory is likely to fulfil the request of dismissing the grant.
Since the Japanese tech giant has requested FCC quite recently, it seems that it won’t be making any major change to the design as its Feb. 26 launch event is drawing near. However, the change seems to be urgent enough that the company decided to approach FCC for it few weeks before its launch.
Recent reports have revealed that the upcoming Sony flagships won’t be sporting the OmniBalance design that it has been using on its smartphones since 2013. The Xperia XZ2 Pro and Xperia XZ2 are likely speculated to arrive with the trendy full screen design.
