Images of a full-screen Sony phone spotted in the wild
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.
