Upcoming fullscreen Xperia smartphones leak in images

2018 Sony Xperia Devices back 1

2018 Sony Xperia Devices back 1

Two unnamed Sony Xperia smartphones have been leaked online, which reveals bezel-less display and more. The appearance of these Sony phones looks quite different from the existing Xperia branded smartphones. If this happens to be true, the company will be ditching the OmniBalance design language that it started implementing in 2013 in favor of the new trend - full-screen design. This device seems to be the 2018 flagship smartphone from Sony.

Georgian site Vortex.ge claims to have acquired design drafts for two upcoming Sony handsets and has created renders based on them, one of which is a very angular flagship which has a mirror-like back. The smartphone with less rounded corners and a shiny back is supposed to be the flagship model. The two camera modules are oddly spread apart, which probably means one is just a depth sensor as this much spacing would result in much larger parallax for any other arrangement. It does seem questionable that the two phones will have the Snapdragon 845 chipset since Samsung will have early access to the chipset similar to a year ago. From the rumored specs, we can make out that this device could be an upgraded variant of the Xperia XZ Premium. Both the phones are touted to have a 5.7-inch 18:9 4K displays. It is also reported to come with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage and will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset that was announced this week.

The second upcoming Sony handset should also bring dual front-facing speakers and a dual rear camera, though its fingerprint sensor is expected to be a normal one situated on the back panel.

This is the first major leak of Sony Xperia phones which has appeared after a long time, while there is still enough time in the launch of these phones. Coming to the device on the right, it features a matte finish and one can spot the dual-camera setup at the top-left corner along with LED flash and some sensors. Secondly they could simply be fan-made renders, so do take it with a grain of salt.
