Alleged Xperia XZ2 image may be our first look at Sony's new 'all-screen' design



Sony is prepping an onslaught of the "all-screen," "bezel-less" club of 2017, it seems, as its alleged Xperia XZ2 design CAD has leaked out. From a previous leak, we know most there is to know about Sony's future flagship, save for the design, price and release date. 

Well, now we may be looking at the redesigned Sony casing, and it certainly looks like an "all-screen" to us, with minimum bottom and side bezels, but thicker forehead to house the selfie camera, earpiece, and other paraphernalia that usually goes at the front - no crazy notch, Essential, or curved screen designs here. What's characteristic for Sony phones, and stays herе as well, though, is the dedicated shutter button on the side, indicating that Sony may have something to show us in the camera department as well.

As you can see from the specs bandied about for this phone, it is expected to land with a Snapdragon 845 chipset, which means that Sony is positioning it as a high-end device, but also means that it may come later than the Galaxy S9, as Samsung usually hogs all the initial supply of the new and improved Snapdragons for its spring flagships. Dual 12 MP camera may also be in store, as well as a much upgraded selfie snapper. 

What's most notable, however, is the new design, which may have managed to fit a 5.5" Triluminous display in a rather compact body, judging from the specs. The 1080p display resolution listed also means that the Z2 may have a good battery life as well, while the 4GB RAM/64 GB storage will actually be the minimum for a 2018 flagship. Sony waited until this past summer to announce the XZ1, but hopefully the XZ2 will be revealed much earlier, if not released at the same time.

Very nice implementation of the side FPS. Top bezels are sleek but based on the design it's bye bye front speakers for now. But it may be located on the bottom of the chin. And please dont ditch the headphone jack.

It's so fake. It's a photoshopped XZ.

That's why it's labeled as 'alleged'

It's a fake edit of XZP. The new design is rounder and with the dual front facing speakers

i don't think Sony will drop one of the bezels, since Sony is known for symmetrical shape. Plus the bottom speaker will be dropped then if the leak is 100% true.

Agree. This is one of the reasons why I stick with Sony - symmetrical design. A bottom bezel similar in size of the top should be present.

As with all upcoming Xperia phone launches, I’d believe it when I see it. Sony have fooled me way too many times with promising launches and/or leaks. I’d believe it’s good when most reviews says it is. Having said that, as an avid Sony fanboy (love their TVs and PlayStation), I’d most possibly buy if it’s at least competes with the upcoming Galaxy S9.

I cant wait for an 18:9 (Full Screen) Xperia (compact :-D ), but this isn't it. It says 1920:1080

I hope they'll keep the 16:9 aspect ratio. If so this will be my next phone otherwise I'll look further or maybe even a mid end phone :s
