Sony is long rumored and said to be making a true bezel-less design and improve a lot of aspects of their current generation of high-end devices.
This might actually become a reality in early 2018, as a new leak shows a new upcoming device’s model number and key specifications.
The model number in question is H8541. The specification sheet includes an inside look of what we should expect in the very near future.
The dimensions are said to be 149 x 74 x 7.5mm.
The new Sony high-end flagship is rumored to have a 5.7″ 4K HDR display with Gorilla Glass 5 protecting the glass.
Surprisingly, the spec sheet shown above only reveals the Snapdragon 835 chipset – instead of the newly announced Snapdragon 845. This is certainly a downside for those who would consider picking this device up – however these details aren’t always correct at the time of writing this, so take it with a pinch of salt.
Other than having the ‘old’ chipset, Sony is said to stick with 4GB of RAM and opt for the higher 64GB of UFS storage combination. This will very likely stay expandable.
Other features include NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C and the usual IP68 certificate against dust and water. The battery is supposedly 3420 mAh and it will run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
This is not all!
There is supposed to be another device along this one.
Everything is unclear, however this is what’s rumored.
A brand new Sony flagship is expected to have rounded corners with a brand new look. As you can see on the image above, this wouldn’t really compared to other Xperia devices that we’ve seen in the past.
On the front, we would have a bezel-less display with front facing stereo speakers. Looking at the images, we can tell that the bezels on the top/bottom would be ‘minimal’ compared to previous generations and it would pair with other current generation flagship devices.
The device will supposedly have a 5.7″ 4K 18:9 display and be powered by the latest Snapdragon 845 chipset with 6GB of RAM and likely 64/128GB of storage.
What else, the fingerprint sensor would be moved to the back of the device – instead of having on the right side as we have got used to from a Sony device.
There would also be a dual-camera setup on the rear with a similar setup to the XZs’.
As always take this with a pinch of salt, there’s still a long way to go before these devices get released and officially announced by Sony.
