It is expected that Sony unveil the new line of Sony Xperia phones at the Mobile World Congress on Monday, February 25. But you probably won’t have to wait until then to see what the company has to offer you. 91Mobiles has leaked what it says is all the lot, complete with photos, specifications and prices.
According to the tech site, Sony to launch up to four new phones at MWC this year. They include the lower-end Xperia L3, the mid-range Xperia 10 and 10 Plus, and the flagship Xperia 1. This name fits earlier device leaks from Evan Blass, who also posted images of the Xperia 1 and Xperia 10 and 10 Plus.
The photos show that Sony isn’t changing the look of the Sony Xperia too much, with all four phones following the slightly revamped design that we saw debut with the Sony Xperia XZ2 and Sony Xperia XZ3 last year. There are curved metal edges on each phone, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and disappointingly large bezels.; nothing that matches the edge-to-edge quality of most high-end phones.
Nevertheless, where Sony is doing something different is the new extra-high 21: 9 format in high-end mobiles. Sony is apparently calling this “cinema in general”; And while it will be great for watching TV and movies, we are curious to see how it handles for everyday use.
