Xperia XZ2 Pro spotted in HTML benchmark, long display reaffirmed

Xperia XZ2 Pro spotted in HTML benchmark, long display reaffirmed
For a while now, we've been hearing whispers that Sony might just be jumping on the 18:9 bandwagon, joining the ranks of extra-wide, thin-bezeled phones with its next flagships. Well, now, we have a reiteration of that rumor through an alleged benchmark listing, which seems to spill some details about an Xperia XZ2 Pro.

First and foremost, the screengrab shows us that the new phone is running Android 8.1 Oreo. Then, we get a section saying "Screen size: 424 x 848 px". Now, we doubt this is the actual screen resolution the phone would ship with — who knows what happened there — but these numbers do show us one very important thing. The display would have a 2:1 aspect ratio, a.k.a. 18:9. This reiterates that Sony's next flagship might have that extra-tall display, as first seen on the LG G6 and Galaxy S8.

What else? Unfortunately, nothing much — not from this screenshot. We doubt that Sony would be ditching the Omnibalance design language — we imagine that the XZ2 Pro would still be a rectangular design with a power button right in the center of its frame. It'd probably look close to the pretty Xperia XA2, but with a longer display and slimmer forehead / chin.

Of course, that's just speculation. A phone speculation!

424 x 848? What's the screen size? 5.5, 5.7 or 6 inch? And if the display is big. Did they move the front facing speaker?
