Not a lot of information has been released about Sony's upcoming phone, the Xperia 2, but images and specifications of the new phone have emerged through a leak and they highlight some exciting new features!
According to WinFuture, the leaked images and specifications indicate that the flagship phone could be smaller this time. Photos of the phone, which show that it would be available in at least three colours (black, blue, and red), reveal that it looks a lot like its predecessor, Sony Xperia 1.
The Xperia 2 is likely to feature a 21:9 screen and sport slim bezels on both top and bottom. It reportedly boasts three cameras but the difference this time around is that all lenses are located one the left edge.
The triple-lens combo would be 12MP, with one each of a standard, wide-angle, and a telephoto lenses.
In terms of size, it may be smaller. It supposedly features a 6.1-inch, 1080x2520 screen, which, compared to Xperia 1's 6.5-inch, 1644 x 3840 screen, would unfortunately end up being a downgrade.
Regardless, the screen would most likely be an AMOLED display and support HDR.
Sony Xperia 2 is expected to have Qualcomm's high-end chip, the Snapdragon 855, and offer a 6GB RAM and 128GB in storage.
It reportedly would boast a side fingerprint scanner, single-lens selfie snapper, and a dedicated camera button.
Although almost everywhere, the phone is being called the Sony Xperia 2, it would probably be launched under a different name. Among the possible names are Xperia 1S and Xperia 1V.
The phone is likely to be launched this year, with speculation rife that that could happen as early as this month, as the Internationale Funkausstellung 2019 (IFA 2019 or Europe's biggest tech show) starts later in September.
Apart from this, new phones coming out soon include Apple's iPhone 11, Huawei's Mate 30 Pro, and Google's Pixel 46.
