The Xperia F could arrive next year as Sony's first foldable smartphone
Expected to launch at some point next year, Sony’s first foldable smartphone will reportedly be marketed as the Xperia F – the ‘F’ stands for foldable – and will make use of Samsung’s flexible OLED display technology. Most design details are yet to be reported, but it’s claimed Sony’s offering will adopt the same 21:9 aspect ratio seen on the Xperia 1 and Xperia 10 devices. This would indicate that Sony is planning a Motorola Razr-like design wherein the display folds vertically rather than horizontally, as seen on the Huawei Mate X and Galaxy Fold which essentially offer a tablet-like experience.
Moving away from the external side of things, the Xperia F will apparently arrive complete with 5G connectivity. Sony hasn’t announced a 5G smartphone yet, but it has confirmed in the past that it’s working on implementing support for the next-gen networks eventually, so it only makes sense for a premium foldable offering to include it.
Regarding the smartphone’s announcement, Sony has a habit of introducing devices at the annual MWC event in Barcelona. Because of this, there’s a strong possibility the Xperia F will make its first appearance at next year’s event alongside the Xperia 3, or whatever Sony chooses to call its 2020 flagship.
