As it was supposed to go that Sony will be hosting its main event at IFA this September with a huge anticipation of it unveiling the Sony XR Smartphone devices but as it now seems to be taking form according to mentions we heard on the company’s site that Sony may very well launch the Xperia X Compact and Xperia XZ instead, tingling tick, right?
According to a prolific tipster named Evan Blass (@ecleaks) the images are there and he has posted them on his account, the Smartphone is clearly visible in them.
So let us try to point the details out according to the listings on the company’s site, well nothing much can be sure of just yet but spotted by TechTastic, a tech based site from Netherlands, they say that Sony’s Czech site has Xperia XZ labeled as under the caption of “photography” and Xperia X Compact under “pictures without a blur” that of course clearly points out to some really awesome optical performance!
There are reports that suggest that what we take as Xperia XZ might well be Xperia XR that was previously rumored but still there is no certainty of that either and meanwhile all this Evan Blass shares an image that he claims is of Sony Xperia X Compact and if that is true then it will be the first time a Compact model will be available on the X series, it sports a very matching design to those of the other devices in the same series.
It is to be noticed here that Sony practically killed off its flagship ‘Z’ Series to replace that with the X series and in May the company addressed the rebranding of the aesthetic at Barcelona MWC and launched the Xperia XA, Xperia X and Xperia X performance Smartphone devices!
One thing is thus for sure that X series is supposed to rock the world in Sony’s vision!
And if these rumors about the leaked devices are true then Xperia X compact may be a smaller variant of the Xperia X Smartphone.
And according to TechTastic the features of Xperia X Compact may include a 4.6 inch display screen with full HD and that may be powered by the Snapdragon 820 S0C, either with 3GB or 4GB RAM, a 2,700 mAh battery life and USB type C port.
And as mentioned before that Sony may also launch the Sony Xperia XR Smartphone in the IFA event as well and according to rumors that device may feature a 5.1 inch full HD display screen that would be powered by Snapdragon 820 processors.
Sony is also believed to be switching to USB type C ports finally and there is also a dual LED flash pegged up modulation coming to the rear camera…the dimensions are supposed to be at 146.4 x 71.9 x 8.1 mm.
The camera departments in Xperia XR or Xperia XZ will have a 5.2 inch display and be powered by Snapdragon 820 processor with a RAM of 4GB and here a whopper a 23-megapixel rear camera that will have laser autofocus and a 13-megapixel front selfie camera!
So now that the event is merely a week away all the official details will be out soon enough and while Sony has not given up on the Smartphone business just about yet it is showing though lesser efforts to the second biggest market of the world.
The Japanese Company is said to reduce its efforts from the Indian Market as due to unsatisfactory performances and it also predict only a 0.3 percent growth in US India and China in the future.
The Final countdown:
– Sony may launch Xperia XR on its event on September 1.
– Sony Xperia XR Smartphone is supposed to have a 5.1 inch display screen.
