Sony's New Xperia Phones (Mostly) Ditch the Bezels


We've been hearing rumors that Sony's next flagships would be a radical departure in terms of design, and now that has been confirmed with a new leak from VentureBeat. Those sources say that Sony will reveal the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact at its event on February 25, one day before the MWC 2018 festivities kick off.

Sony's smartphone division's sprung a leak, as we've got an early-look at its upcoming Xperia phones: the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact.

According to Blass, Sony's Xperia XZ2 will pack a 5.7in display, while the Compact model will feature a smaller 5in screen, with both set to offer a larger screen-to-body ratio than any previous Xperia phone.

After watching virtually every other major phone manufacturer on the planet move on to bezel-less, all-screen phone designs, it appears that Sony is finally going to play catch-up in 2018. Famous tipster Evan Blass has tweeted the new Sony Xperia XZ2 render on his Twitter account, and according to the new render, it sports a full glass 5.7-inch display. Both phones will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chip and will run on Android 8.0.0 Oreo. The camera on XZ2 Compact is slightly different, however.

XZ2 boasts a 3D glass on both sides along with the aluminium frame and has a glossy finish, which is expected to come in four colour variants Black, Green, Silver and Pink.

At the back, you get the same single 19MP camera with f/1.8 aperture, 4K HDR recording and super-slow motion capture as the Xperia XZ Premium, alongside a uniquely positioned fingerprint reader that will actually be functional in the U.S. for once. The XZ2 will feature a 3,180 mAh battery that can be charged via USB-C or wirelessly, while the XZ2 Compact, with its 2,870 mAh battery, can only be charged with a wire. The Xperia XZ Compact has a smaller 2,870mAh battery but can not be charged wirelessly. The devices will likely be released sometime in March.
