Unannounced Sony Xperia smartphone with 5-inch display shows up at FCC

Unannounced Sony Xperia smartphone with 5-inch display shows up at FCC
Although Sony Mobile has already introduced a few Xperia mid-range smartphones early this year, the Japanese company has at least a few more surprises saved for late February. I'm pretty sure many of you are waiting for Sony to unveil its new flagship Xperia smartphone, but that won't be the only device introduced at Mobile World Congress 2018 next month.

Unannounced Sony Xperia smartphone with 5-inch display shows up at FCC
One or more mid-range Android smartphones are likely to be announced by Sony in less than a month, and one of them could sport a 5-inch display. An unannounced Xperia handset has been recently spotted at FCC (Federal Communications Commission), but few details are known about the device.

The FCC listing confirms some of the smartphone's measurements (135 x 65mm) and the size of the display (5-inch), but nothing else is revealed. It's worth mentioning that this doesn't seem to be the same device as the previously rumored Xperia smartphone that lacks 3.5mm audio jack.

There's a high chance information about Sony's upcoming Xperia smartphones will leak ahead of the official announcement, so stick around if you don't mind us spoiling it for you.

With the dimensions listed above at 135 x 65mm I wonder if this could be an 18:9 inch screen... Based on the fact that the xz1 compact was also 65mm wide but shorter at 129mm. An other alternative is that this could be a 16:9 display with complete elimination of side bezels...

Sounds like it could be a new "Compact" version with an 18:9 display. Xperia Z3/Z5 Compact - 127 x 65mm (4.6") Xperia X/XZ1 Compact - 129 x 65mm (4.6") Xperia (unannounced) - 135 x 65mm (5.0")

No not really 18:9..Sony did make a phone with the same dimensions earlier a. k. a Xperia UL... It has the same height, same screen diagonal but with thicker side bezels... So this new handset might have narrowed down sides but overall might look same ase Xperia UL.
