The Xperia XR could be the largest smartphone yet in the Xperia X series with USB Type-C and 4K-capable cameras.

The Xperia X and XA series of smartphones have only been in market since June, yet new models for the Xperia family continue to leak. The Xperia F8331, for example, will likely launch as the Xperia XR with flagship specifications. Sony is expected to formally announce the device come September 1st during a briefing at this year's IFA in Berlin. While we have had a good look at the supposed Xperia XR through existing leaks, it wasn't until now that press renders have surfaced.

These new images show a slightly different design than what was previously suggested. The edges are sharper and the new color scheme appears closer to the blue option offered by the Galaxy Note 7. OnLeaks is further claiming that the new Sony smartphone will measure 146.4 x 71.9 x 8.1 mm to be larger than its existing Xperia X and XA peers. A USB Type-C port can also be spotted based on the leaked images. Other expected features include 4K-capable cameras on both the front and rear with a FHD display. It remains to be seen if Sony will offer a 4K UHD display option as well.

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.
