“The upcoming Sony Xperia handsets could pack an LCD display with a 21:9 aspect ratio”
Sony has been laying low post the MWC 2019 announcements where it unveiled the Xperia 1, Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus smartphones. Now, according to ZACKBUKS, noted Japanese leaker, Sony might launch two new smartphones in Tokyo, Japan, on July 9th. Though there are no details about their names or specifications, speculations are rife that they might have Xperia 1s/Xperia S and Xperia 1v/Xperia V monikers and both the handsets could pack an LCD display with a 21:9 aspect ratio.
Furthermore, reports suggest that Sony might be working on a flagship exclusive to the Japan market. The said phone would have an LCD panel, instead of OLED like the Xperia 1, but will ship with the same mighty Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. It remains to be seen if any one of these upcoming devices is the flagship in question. Since Sony hasn’t made an official announcement of the same, we suggest you take this with a pinch of salt.
Separately, a live image of an unannounced Sony phone with triple rear camera setup surfaced online. Unlike the Xperia 1, the triple cameras are positioned on the left spine along with LED flash and laser autofocus, but not in the middle. There is no rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, so it is possible that Sony might place the sensor on the side or within the display. The rear seems to be made of glass and the antenna lines on the sides. Unfortunately, nothing else is known about the handset at the moment, but we expect to come across more information as we move forward.
