“The Japanese brand is all set to launch its first set of smartphone for the year at the upcoming event”
Japanese smartphone maker, Sony has been using the Mobile World Congress for a long time as a platform to introduce its latest phones. It seems that this year will not be any different. The company has sent out media invites for a February 25th event at MWC 2019 to Russian and Italian media. However, the invites don’t reveal any names of the devices to be expected at the event.
According to the speculations, the smartphone maker might launch the flagship – Xperia XZ4 at the event. There are also talks that Sony might launch the upcoming smartphone with a new moniker – Xperia N1. Further, there were rumours that the brand might launch the Xperia XZ4 Compact along with the flagship and we also saw the leaked renders of the same. However, a recent report claims that the company might give the compact variant a skip. Instead, Sony will be launching a series of new smartphones including Xperia XA3, Xperia XA3 Ultra and Xperia L3. According to Don Mesa, the Sony Mobile Vice President of Marketing for North America, Don Mesa, users need a bigger display now a days to consume multimedia content. This is probably the reason why Sony has scraped the Xperia XZ4 Compact.
Coming to the Xperia XZ4, the leaked renders and 360-degree video in the past revealed some key details. The smartphone is expected to be the first from the brand to feature a triple camera module on the back. However, the details of the camera setup are not known at the moment. The flagship is expected to feature a large 6.5-inch display featuring 18:9 aspect ratio and bezels still present on the top and bottom of the screen. On the performance front, the XZ4 is speculated to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. As of now, no other details of the handset is known.
Expect more details of the upcoming Sony flagship to pour in over next few days. Stay tuned to 91mobiles for more updates.
