Sony's bezel-less Lavender smartphone to feature two 13 MP cameras

Remember the Sony Lavender, an unannounced Android smartphone that's supposed to have almost no bezel on the right and left side of its display? We now have more details about it, thanks to @upleaks.

Reportedly, the Lavender is "another selfie-focused phone", featuring a 13 MP front-facing camera, as well as a 13 MP rear camera, both accompanied by LED flashes. The handset has 2 GB of RAM, and - like the Xperia C4 before it - a 64-bit, octa-core MediaTek MT6752 processor clocked at 1.7 GHz. Moreover, the device sports a 1080 x 1920 pixels display of unknown size - but "bigger" than the screen of the Xperia C4 (which, at 5.5 inches, is already pretty big).

At launch, the Sony Lavender should run Android Lollipop, and some versions will have dual SIM capabilities.

Most probably, "Lavender" is just a codename, so the smartphone will have a different name once Sony announces it. Speaking about that, there's no word on when the handset will be officially unveiled.

The image embedded above, which allegedly shows the Sony Lavender (click to enlarge), isn't exactly great, so we're looking forward to seeing better photos of the new smartphone. It's not clear if Sony is planning to launch the Lavender globally, or just in select regions, but we'll likely find out more about this soon.
