A mysterious Sony Xperia XZ2 is reportedly launching "soon"

A mysterious Sony Xperia XZ2 is reportedly launching
Sony will be hosting a press event later this month at MWC 2018, and we're expecting the company to announce an Xperia XZ Pro then. But this is probably not the only new handset that the company is getting ready to unveil come late February. 

According to a tweet sent out by Three Ireland (one of the main Irish mobile operators), a mysterious Sony Xperia XZ2 is "coming soon." The tweet was sent on February 2, but it's been deleted - this likely means the folks at Three Ireland realized the Xperia XZ2 is an unannounced phone that shouldn't have been mentioned.   
 
A mysterious Sony Xperia XZ2 is reportedly launching "soon"
For now, there is no word on what features this alleged Sony Xperia XZ2 is offering. However, like its predecessor (the Xperia XZ1 from 2017, pictured above), the XZ2 could sport a 1080p screen measuring around 5.2 inches. Thus, the handset should be smaller than the Xperia XZ Pro, which is expected to bring a 5.7-inch 4K display. Nevertheless, the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ Pro might have some common features, possibly including water resistance, and Qualcomm's latest and greatest Snapdragon 845 processor. 

A 5-inch Xperia XZ2 Compact could also be announced at MWC 2018. All in all, Sony might be readying at least three new interesting Xperia phones to showcase this month. We'll be here to let you know all about them, as soon as official details are available.

I don't understand why they release the premium flagship variant in the wrong order

I was going to get XZ1C but I guess I'll wait. Gosh, if they manage to get this 5" screen in the same chassis and keep the front speakers it will be my favourite phone of the year (well, XZ1C was my favourite phone of previous lol)
