The model appears to be sporting a new design not found on any existing Xperia X smartphone and will purportedly have 4K recording capabilities.

GSMArena has leaked high-resolution pictures of a supposedly unannounced Xperia smartphone with the model number F8331. Unlike the current Xperia X series, the F8331 sports rounder edges and larger margins around the FHD display. The source is also claiming stereo speakers and NFC compatibility near the top left of the device.

Meanwhile, the back corner of the device holds both the rear camera and dual-LED Flash while the antenna is likely located on the bottom of the unit based on the plastic strip on an otherwise all-aluminum build. A USB Type-C port can also be spotted next to the 3.5 mm audio jack, which would make this one of the first smartphones in the Xperia series to make the jump from Micro-USB to the reversible Type-C form factor. GSMArena is reporting that both the front and rear cameras would be capable of 4K recording and that the display is slightly larger than the recent Xperia X Performance. Sony may be officially unveiling this model at IFA 2016 in Berlin this coming September as it did last year with the premium Xperia Z5.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
