Sony have struggled to make an impact in recent years possibly due to their extremely stale and blocky signature design. 2017 was the year of the disappearing bezel and Sony are possibly looking to finally change their massive bezel design according to a leak overnight.
Techi Estate have managed to get their hands on what looks to be the next Sony flagship, the Xperia XZ2. The phone which definitely has the Sony design language where the corners are square and not rounded at all shows bezels that are absolutely minute — a huge change from Sony’s of this and previous years.
The hardware inside the Xperia XZ2 is also rumoured to be top notch with it powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. There is a microSD slot for added storage. The display is apparently a 5.48 inch FHD (1920 x 1080) LCD — all this in a body that is just 128 x 73.4 x 7.4 mm in size and weighs 156 grams.
The cameras onboard are hopefully top noch considering so many other manufacturers use Sony parts for their cameras. The rear camera is a dual camera setup with both lenses 12MP while the front-facing selfie camera is 15MP. There is also IP65/68 water resistance for those you like that.
Sony have always put decent hardware into their phones only to be let down by their design team — hopefully 2018 changes all that for them.
Would you consider this as your next flagship purchase?
