A new certification from the Moscow-based Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) requested by the OEM Sony has come to light. It is for a "mobile phone" with the model number J9210. As it matches that of the Xperia 1 closely, it may refer to the rumored Xperia 2. On the other hand, it could also simply be a new variant of the 1.

A new leak suggests that Sony has a new smartphone in the works. As the OEM has already released its flagship for 2019 (the Xperia 1), it could be of a different category or product line. However, the model number found in the alleged certification document in question indicates otherwise.

This material has reportedly been observed in the EEC's database, and was granted on June 13, 2019. It is described as for "Mobile phones brand Sony" and is known as the J9210. As the Xperia 1's own number is J9110, this has led to speculation that the EEC approval is for the projected Xperia 2.

A device bearing this name is rumored to be a compact version of the flagship 1 phone. As Sony has maintained a line of smaller versions of its flagships in the past, this is somewhat plausible. To recap, the putative Xperia 2 is predicted to have a screen 0.3 inches shorter than that of its sibling, yet retain its other specs, including a 21:9 aspect-ratio. On the other hand, the fresh 'certification' may simply be for a new version of the pre-existing Xperia 1.
