Unknown Sony handset receives Bluetooth SIG certification

Unknown Sony handset receives Bluetooth SIG certification
A new but unknown Sony Xperia handset has just received its Bluetooth certification. The documentation does say that the product involved is a smartphone, but there is no model number listed. In fact, the only number that might help identify the handset is a design name and design model number of PRO20161112. But that information leads nowhere. This news doesn't come in a total vacuum, however. Sony is rumored to be have five handsets ready to be unveiled at MWC later this month.

Among the five is a model code named the Sony Yoshino. This handset is expected to carry a 5.5-inch display with a 4K resolution of 2160 x 3840. The new Snapdragon 835 SoC will power the device, which will be equipped with 4GB or 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The new IMX400 image sensor from Sony is said to be employed on the phone.

The other four Sony handsets that allegedly will see the light of day in Barcelona include the BlancBright, Keyaki, Hinoki and Mineo. These phones range in screen size from a 5-inch display with a 720 x 1280 resolution, to a 5.5-inch screen featuring a resolution of 1440 x 2560.

While each of these five Xperia branded handsets are merely rumored to exist, we do know one thing for sure. At least one new model has been certified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group.
