At the Mobile World Congress last week, Sony launched its flagship phone, Sony Xperia XZ2 along with its smaller variant Xperia XZ2 Compact. Now, a new report from China suggests that the Japan-based company is working on a new flagship device.
According to the report, the new flagship device will come with a bezel-less display as well as 4K resolution. The report further adds that the phone’s design will be based on Sony’s new “Ambient Flow” design language that the company recently talked about.
The unnamed Sony flagship smartphone is said to feature a 5.5-inch display with 4,320 × 2,180 pixel screen resolution with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the device will be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 845 processor — the same chipset that powers recently launched Xperia XZ2 series. The report further with at least 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage.
However, this won’t be the first mobile phone from Sony to feature a 4K display. Last year, the Japan-based company launched Xperia XZ Premium which packs a 5.5-inch display with 4K resolution with HDR support.
The company has not yet dropped any hints about another flagship phone, so take this report with a pinch of salt until more information about this upcoming phone surfaces. If the company is indeed working on another flagship device, we expect it to get launched in the second half of this year.
Recently, Sony announced its two new smartphones at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona — Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact. These are the first devices from the Japan-based company to feature the trendy full-screen display.
The Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact both sports 5.7-inch and 5.0-inch 18:9 displays and are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 mobile platform along with 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage which is expandable up to 400GB via hybrid dual SIM slot.
The devices feature a 19MP Sony IMX400 f/2.0 sensor at the back with key features like 5-axis stabilization, hybrid laser-phase detection-contrast autofocus, and burst autofocus. On the front is a 5MP camera with f/2.2 aperture and 23mm wide-angle sensor. Just like the rear camera, it also supports the 3D creator.
Battery capacity on the Xperia XZ2 is 3180mAh with support for wireless charging while the XZ2 Compact comes with a 2870mAh battery without wireless charging support. Both phones are scheduled to arrive in late March or early April but pricing has not been revealed.
