“The Xperia 2 is expected to be a flagship offering with three rear cameras and side-mounted fingerprint sensor”
Earlier this year at MWC, Sony unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, dubbed the Xperia 1. So far, the brand’s newest offering is available only in select markets. While the Xperia 1 is yet to be released globally, the company is reportedly already working on the successor to the handset. Ahead of the official announcement, a handful of CAD-based 5K renders, as well as a 360-degree video of the upcoming Sony Xperia 2, have been leaked on the interwebs.
The leaked images and video suggest that the Sony Xperia 2 could offer a design similar to its predecessor. The phone appears to have the taller 21:9 Cinema Wide display with a tad thick bezels at both the top and bottom. The handset’s power button and volume rocker seem to be placed on the right side. A fingerprint sensor is also present in the middle on the right side. Just like its predecessor, the Xperia 2 is also said to offer three cameras at the rear. However, the triple camera module is moved to the top-left corner instead of the middle on the Xperia 1. Lastly, the images indicate that the Xperia 2 will be ditching a 3.5mm headphone socket, just like its predecessor.
Furthermore, the source suggests that the Sony Xperia 2 will feature a 6.1-inch display and measure 158mm x 68.3mm x 8.3mm (9.2mm including the rear camera bump). As per the earlier reports, the new Xperia could be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 flagship processor, aided by 6GB of RAM. The handset is rumoured to be fuelled by a 3,200mAh battery that will support wireless charging technology.
Unfortunately, no other details about the Sony Xperia 2’s features are available at the moment. Also, there’s no word when the company is planning to launch the flagship as of now.
