Sony Xperia Z5 Premium successor could be showcased behind closed doors at MWC 201716
The so-called Sony Yoshino that leaked recently is said to pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and a stunning 4k display. If Sony introduces the flagship later this month, it might not be able to put it on sale until after the Galaxy S8 hits the shelves in late April.
In order to avoid that, Sony is now rumored to have delayed the announcement of its Xperia flagship (or at least that of a Xperia Z5 Premium successor equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 CPU) for a later date. Even so, the device will still be present at MWC 2017, but it will only be showcased behind closed doors.
Instead, Sony will unveil at least four other Xperia mid-range Android smartphones, which are only known by their codenames: BlancBright, Keyaki, Hinoki and Mineo.
The latest rumor concerning a Sony Xperia Z5 Premium successor certainly comes in line with the recent reports claiming the Snapdragon 835 chipset won't be commercially widely available until after the end of April. That if Sony wants this CPU inside its flagship, of course.
