Image of the alleged “New Xperia X” shows thin bezels

Rumor has it Sony plans to unveil at least two new smartphones in late February at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 trade fair. One of the phones to be announced next month could be the Xperia XZ (2017), which we've already reported about last week.

Recently, the picture of another unannounced Xperia smartphones that's likely to be revealed in late February leaked online. The device in the image is called the “New Xperia X,” but it might be launched on the market under a different name.

The image leaked doesn't come with any other details regarding its specs, but if the picture is legit, then the “New Xperia X” will be a very thin smartphone. But it's not just the handset that looks very slim, the bezels are thin as well.

It's also worth mentioning that the pictures seems to have been taken from an advertising material that will be released as soon as the smartphone goes official.

The good news is we're still more than a month away from Sony's official announcement, so there's plenty of time to learn more about what the Japanese company has in store for its fans. Hopefully, it will be something different than what we're used to see.

Its bezels are not thinner than many flags already on the market like note 5, s7, s7 edge, mate 8, p9, mate 9 and the list goes on. Sony mobile refuse to stop playing catch up again and again. *yawn*. Nothing has changed under the sony mobile sun.

Let's hope that the bezels on the top and bottom are relatively thin too and that the battery is decent for a change.

Again and again the same story. Does anybody of you actually think? Sony needs these biggish (smaller actually than an iPhone or Google Pixel) bezels in order to accommodate the FLUSH camera ABOVE the screen and not right behind it, which would make the device either too thick or it would lead to a protruding camera like on the iPhone and Galaxies. If this image is legit, then it's pretty certain that this new Xperia will have a massively protruding camera at the back, Moto Z style. Is this really better?

Well this looks fake. "Xperia X" is not even written in the usual Xperia fonthttp://www.sonyrumors.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Sony_Xperia_X_Unboxing.jpg

This, and the UI is still the same apart from that huge clock, which doesn't make sense. It's also max 2mm thick, something that's not possible yet.

It was the bezel that kept me from ever even giving Sony a first look. I'm curious.

The ship has pretty much sailed for Sony. No one buys their phones anymore.

Its good that they're finally cutting on the bezel, it doesn't look ugly but it doesn't look great either. Sony has more work to do on the design. I'm also hoping the speakers are a lot louder and waterproofing is coming along.
