(Update: possibly fake) Sony's next flagship could feature 4K HDR OLED screen, potent dual camera, Snapdragon 845
Alleged image of the Sony Xperia XZ2, design could be similar to the XZ Pro
UPDATE: After further inspection, we've established that the screenshots below are possibly falsified. The information extracted from them most likely isn't accurate.
A few hours ago, we reported on a leaked list
that allegedly revealed all of the major 2018 Android smartphones that will sport the Snapdragon 845 chipset. One of the high-end handsets mentioned in the list was an intriguing Sony "Xperia XZ Pro-A" model that will supposedly break cover in June.
The naming of the device certainly suggests that this could be Sony's 2018 flagship, and now, thanks to a new leak, we have a spec sheet that could potentially support this claim. The screenshots (you can see them in the gallery below) first appeared in the comment section of a Xperia Blog
Needless to say, this information is speculative and could be far from the truth. The screenshots are a bit hard to read, so we've summarized all the important bits in the table below.

These specs look too good to be true, don't they? If we assume that this information is correct, we are looking at one of the most beastly smartphones of next year.
The leaked list that we mentioned at the beginning of the article states that the XZ Pro will get announced in June of 2018, but we're hopeful that Sony won't stray off its usual course of action and unveil the phone at MWC at the end of February.
