Sony's New Xperia Phones (Mostly) Ditch the Bezels

Sony's New Xperia Phones (Mostly) Ditch the Bezels

The company is all set to change this later this month in Barcelona with Sony XZ2 and XZ2 Compact. The XZ2 will sport 3D glass on both sides, with an aluminium frame, while the XZ2 Compact will get a glass front, but a polycarbonate back panel.

Both will run on the very latest Snapdragon 845 processor and both will come with Android 8.0 Oreo preinstalled. To add to its stunning look, its shiny finish ranges up to four colours: black, green, silver and pink. Both phones will have Full HD LCD screens protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

At the back, you get the same single 19MP camera with f/1.8 aperture, 4K HDR recording and super-slow motion capture as the Xperia XZ Premium, alongside a uniquely positioned fingerprint reader that will actually be functional in the U.S. for once. It's capable of 4K HDR recording and super-slow motion capture in 1080p resolution.

We were expecting to see the new Sony Xperia XZ2 at Mobile World Congress next week, but at the eleventh hour, an image has just leaked. There's a notable lack of dual rear cameras, however, with both smartphones featuring single 19 MP rear sensors with f/1.8 apertures.

Redesigned from the ground up to leave the "OmniBalance" language behind at last, the Xperia XZ2 finds enough room to accommodate front-firing "S Force" stereo speakers, as well as a company logo below all that screen real estate. The XZ2 will have a feature that will supplement audio with haptic feedback which syncs up with the sound. They'll likely be available sometime in March.

Sony Xperia XZ2 compact houses a 2870mAh battery and the XZ2 houses a 3180mAh battery.

Yes, that is correct; the smartphone could be the first belonging to the Xperia lineup to provide support for this type of charging. The XZ2 Compact, on the other hand, will have a smaller 2,870mAh battery and will lack wireless charging.

All the same, despite the online leak of information about the models, the relevance of the MWC 2018 still remains as official details regarding the pricing and release specifics can only be known on the day of the event.
