Sony Xperia G3112 and G3121 to be unveiled at MWC 2017?

Sony Xperia G3112 and G3121 to be unveiled at MWC 2017?
Sony's Xperia X lineup didn't seem to have attracted too much appeal from customers, but what matters is for the Japanese company to redeem itself in the eyes of its most loyal fans.

The next devices coming from Sony are likely to be presented next year at Mobile World Congress, which set to take place between February 27 and March 2. This means that we are still four months away until the supposedly reveal of the next Xperia phones.

However, the first details on unannounced Sony smartphones have just emerged at the Eurasian Economic Commission. Two presumably Xperia handsets that go by the model number G3112 and G3121 have been spotted, but no additional details on specs are available yet.

The only thing that makes us believe these phones will be revealed next year at MWC is the model number, which follows the same pattern as the previous phones introduced by Sony at the same trade fair: Exxxx in 2015, Fxxxx in 2016. 

Following this naming scheme, in 2017 Sony is likely to launch Xperia smartphones with model numbers Gxxxx, so the ones that were recently leaked certainly fit the pattern.

Even if this might not be of too much interest for Sony fans, at least we now know what to look for when searching the depths of the Internet for information about the next Xperia phones. Are you excited about Sony's upcoming flagship?

If it comes with 4GB of RAM or more, 4K display, Snapdragon 830 a 3000mAh or larger battery, and dual cam then definitely yes.

who the hell is using virtual reality on a smartphone on a daily basis ?! less than 10% of smartphone users ! whether we like it or not VR is not there yet it needs a couple of years to be useful , right now companies should focus on camera quality , performance and battery life

Even those 10% will use it on the first week and then it'll reduce to 0.01%

@agentzero It is like saying who the hell is using 5g internet ? The hardware has to come first only then people will use it .. right now it is just a tech demo .. but 2017 is the year of VR ... People are not using VR simply because it is not good right now for regular use .. Mainly because of Screen resolution , pixelation .. give it a 4k screen and good comfortable VR headsets and see how people will jump into it .. and i am not talking about games or other niche apps that require heavy processing power + advanced tracking sensors which is difficult to do in a smartphone .. Google nailed the comfort part with daydream headsets that people can put on for long hours .. the only thing remaining now is Resolution Ability to watch Movies and TV shows on a giant screen in a personal Imax theatre is the biggest selling point of "Mobile VR" . and it is very much here .. only held back by low resolution screens and it will not effect performance or battery life too much .. as 4k will only be used in Vr mode and not regularly .. Z5 premium did fine But first the hardware has to come

On my Z5 Premium I do notice the 4K screen advantage when I zoom close in on a photo or video. There is much less pixelltion than normal. For other things the phone runs in 1080P mode so there is not difference.

Sony needs to work on the name of their phones before anything

Like an "iPhone" is a good name? It's so generic but the sheep loves it.

Its the model number. The commercial name should come out soon. No one complains about model numbers, only you.

I just want to see a Sony phone with slim bezels (all four corners) and at least 4GB RAM. Also the camera to be acceptable to use in Auto.

I think they finally realized that bigger is better... Time for 4GB RAM, QHD, bigger batteries, and less mega pixels lol

5.5" screen with at least 4gb ram at reasonable price. But i think that is asking too much from a phone company that doesn't care about their loyal fans.

Perhaps they should implement a 4k screen on a 5.5 inch device again solely for the purpose of VR or hi-res media. Also perhaps they should put a resolution selector (like the Note7's) so that users can choose what resolution they want to be displayed on the phone's screen may it be 720p, 1080p, or 1440p.
