Live images of an unknown Sony Xperia device, which may be the Xperia XZ1 Premium, have surfaced, with the device featuring a unique design form that is sure to keep fans of the Japanese electronics giants on the edge of their seats.

Over the course of the past week, we had multiple leaks on future Sony Xperia devices, with one from a user agent profile, and another on a listed specifications sheet online. Both leaks had something in common, though: the presence of standard 16:9 display, which went against Sony's promise to introduce a new design form in its next-gen devices. A new leak has surfaced now, however, and this one is sure to have Sony fans on the edge of their seats, as the images show a design form that doesn't necessarily lose out to any on the market.

Sony's design language is polarizing at the very least, with hardcore fans liking the company's box-like form factor. The new design looks to build on that form factor, keeping the device's shape similar while introducing slightly rounded edges, an 18:9 display, and a dual real camera setup that's far from mainstream.

Not much else is known about the device but it's said to feature a 5.7-inch 4k display, which may be an indication that it's the Xperia XZ1 Premium. Prices are unconfirmed but there's talk of a  US$950 price tag, which is, admittedly, heavy, but not so preposterous considering the prices of devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the Pixel 2 XL.
