Renders of Sony's 2017 Xperia models leak just before tomorrow's unveiling


Serial tipster Evan Blass disseminated a tweet tonight that shows renders of four Sony Xperia handsets. These will allegedly be the models that Sony will unveil at MWC on Monday, February 27th. There appears to be four models. Earlier this month, we showed you leaked photos of two 5.5-inch Xperia handsets that are rumored to appear at Barcelona. One will sport a resolution of 1440 x 2560, and the other model (the Xperia XZ Premium) will carry a 2160 x 3840 resolution. It also will have a Snapdragon 835 chipset.

Back in January, there was talk about a pair of mid-range Xperia handsets known by their model numbers, G3112 and G3221. The former is said to feature a 720 x 1280 resolution. The latter will carry a 1080 x 1920 resolution on its display, along with a 23MP rear camera and 4GB of RAM.

Blass didn't label the renders, although based on a previous leak the Xperia XZ Premium could be the third model from the left, and a compact model could be the fourth from the left. With only two days left until Sony's MWC event, we will find out soon enough what Sony has in store for 2017.

I want sony to do an lg g6 design but most bezels will go at the bottom and maintaining the circular sides.

They clearly haven't found a way to to put that big camera sensor somewehere else than in the bezels. I'm fine with that, as the new camera is bigger than on the XZ and as long as the battery won't be small.http://static.xperiablog.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/2017-Camera-XZ-compared.png

Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, XZs and XZ Premium are the supposed names from what I've heard.

Thanks to their stereo speaker hardware, you can watch some Xperia XZ disassemble videos.

His comment is valid but don't let him trap you with his upcoming racist and gender comments.

He absolutely hates anything Japanese, he's a kid who can't get over the past.

Yes, I hate them. So? They also hate us although they're the one who commit massive bloody massacre of our innocent civilians. You know nothing about our history, so stop pretending to be a police of the world.

I'm really sorry to hear that Sony commited a massacre on your people. I sincerely hope that Sony will never do it again.

You reek of immaturity kid, grow up. Not one of my korean friends hate anything Japanese. And by your logic, if my great grandfather punched your great grandfather in the face, you would hate me even though I haven't done anything to you.

Every nation have their own assholes and scumbags. Just deal with them properly and don't let hate eat your heart.

I think what he meant is the top and bottom. No issues with sides, they're good.

Bezel bezel bezel. Why are you so huge? Lols! While lg and samsung are trying to make the bezels of their phones as small as possible, sony is doing the exact opposite. Lols! That is probably one reason why sony phones are not selling well. When will they learn?
