It seems that the launch of bezel-less smartphones has become more of a trend among the mid-range and premium smartphone makers. The impact has been so much that Japanese smartphone maker Sony has finally caught up and it seems like the yet to launch Xperia smartphones will definitely sport a nearly bezel-less design.
Sony’s upcoming bezel-less Xperia smartphones have been leaked in the form of live photos much ahead of its announcement which was supposed to occur the next year.The smartphones were expected to be unveiled at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show ) next month, commemorating Sony’s entry into the bezel-less segment.
In the photos published by GizChina, two new Xperia smartphones are perceived with very thin top and bottom bezels. The publication, in this case, are quite are confident that these are definitely not the renders of Sony’s smartphones. The leaked images are portraying devices which are completely different from the existing breed of Sony smartphones that are found right now.
As the image shows, one of the devices has rounded corners, while the other one has the boxy design, similar to the existing ones. Also, the back seems to be retaining that glossy surface with one of the phones getting matte back, while the other one model featuring curved finish, resembling patterns similar to a semicircle.
With this, both the models also feature horizontally stacked dual camera modules with a setup which is quite similar to that of Apple iPhone 7 Plus for one model while for the other model, the sensors are oddly spread apart.
The leak also suggests that both the smartphones are expected to feature a 5.7-inch 4K display with 18:9 aspect ratio, powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 845 chipset. These new Xperia smartphones would have 6GB RAM and would run Android 8.0 Oreo.
Interestingly, these leaked photos seem to indicate a design that would push the boundaries of smartphone design. They are far modern in comparison with existing Xperia smartphone. But then, all these are assumed facts and for the real picture, users would have to pass the patience test of a month.
