After a string of financially unsuccessful releases (that led to the company discontinuing some mid-range lines) and an arguably aging aesthetic, Sony needs to pull out all the stops at MWC next week.
We just get a side perspective of the new handset. The same report also mentions how the spec and the features of the phones will possibly be in the very near future.
This report also reveals pricing details for the two smartphones. It is a piece of the many reasons behind why it took Apple so long to form greater iPhone models at last and to oblige people who lean towards a little handset, organizations, for example, Sony, keep on offering compact gadgets. Some of the other specifications included are 5.7-inch OLED display, 3420mAh battery and IP68 certification.
Likely to be called, Xperia XZ2 as well as XZ1 compact successor at MWC. Under the hood the Xperia XZ2 will sport the latest Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The XZ2 is speculated to cost SEK 7,990 (around $985), while the Xperia XZ2 Compact could cost SEK 5,990 (~$740). This will be a bigger device, however. It's been dubbed the Xperia XZ2 Compact and is said to feature near-identical internals, with the most notable difference being that it has a smaller 4.6-inch (18:9) display. The report states that the phone will have a proprietary music feature that will make use of its vibration engine, details of which are now unclear. Grisha goes on to confirm that there is no 3.5mm headphone jack, and that the fingerprint sensor is located on the rear of the device, much like the Xperia XA2 series.
The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact may bear a price tag of 5,990 SEK, a sum roughly around Rs. 47, 940.
