The smartphone could be unveiled next week.
Sony doesn’t seem to get that much of limelight in the past year, but it’s clear that the company is not giving up on the mobile phone business just yet. In fact, It is expected that the company will reveal the new Xperia 2 smartphone next week during IFA 2019 in Berlin.
Despite the secrecy, online leaks have begun popping up online, giving us a glimpse of what the next Xperia smartphone might look like. If these images are genuine, then it looks like we won’t be seeing a big design change with the Xperia 2.
The leaked images point to the same taller 21:9 display, a staple feature of the Xperia 1. At the back, you will find a triple-camera array that will most likely consist of an ultra-wide sensor bundle with the telephoto sensor and the main camera sensor. It doesn’t look like it will have an all-screen design, given the bezels located at the top and bottom. The colors look lovely though, but we’ll be saving our judgment until after we’ve seen the devices in person.
Hardware details are still unavailable, but rumors point to a decent setup: a Snapdragon 855 CPU, 6 GB of RAM and 128 of storage. The fingerprint reader will be located on the side, which will also work as the main sleep and wake button. Expect Android 10 to be running on the Xperia 2 by the time it releases. No word yet if it will support 5G, but we won’t be surprised if Sony releases an Xperia 2 5G version.
More details should be revealed during Sony’s keynote, rumored to take place during the 5th of September.
