Sony is expected to launch something major at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade fair. There are rumors flying about that there will be at least four new Xperia smartphones announced later this month, which will make it to market in the weeks following their launch.
Among these devices, Sony is also rumoured to launch its new flagship smartphone, the successor to Xperia XZ. There are however, no details regarding the market name of the device.
The pictures published by TechTastic have been taken from Weibo which puts a question on its authenticity but if rumors are to be believed, Sony will announce a couple of devices at the MWC 2017.
There are a couple of things to be noticed in the pictures and the most important one is the fact that the latest Xperia will be packing 4GB of RAM, which if we think, will be one of the first smartphones from the Sony platform to have 4GB of RAM, an improvement to the last year flagships.
Sony’s high-end smartphones have always been under the 3GB RAM bracket with not even the Xperia XZ or the Z5 Premium being given 4GB RAM. Another feature worth mentioning is the addition of the fingerprint scanner integrated into the power button. The leaked image does not show the placement of the fingerprint scanner but according to the leak, Sony chose this solution over integrating the sensor on the back side.
