One of these five devices could be the Xperia XZ2, a top-of-the-line handset with a 5.5-inch 4K display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 6 GB RAM, and the new Sony IMX400 sensor powering the main camera.

Sony might come up with a few strong new products at the end of February since it is rumored that the iconic Japanese brand plans to bring no less than five brand-new devices at the upcoming Mobile World Congress. One of them is expected to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and to push the resolution of a flagship handset all the way up to 4K.

The five rumored devices are internally known as Yoshino, BlancBright, Keyaki, Hinoki, and Mineo for the time being. The most interesting one is Yoshino, believed to be the Sony Xperia XZ2. Its specs are said to include the high-end processor mentioned earlier, a 5.5-inch 4K display, 6 GB RAM, and the new Sony IMX400 sensor.

BlancBright would be quite close to Yoshino, offering a 2K display, a Snapdragon 653 or Snapdragon 835, 4 GB RAM, and the same image sensor mentioned above. The next two would use the MediaTek Helio P20 and smaller screens. At least, the $350 USD Mineo should be the cheapest of them all, but its specs have not been uncovered yet.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
