Sony To Introduce Xperia Flagship With a 5.5” 4K Display & Snapdragon 835 SoC
There’s new rumor floating around that the Xperia Z5 Premium successor could be unveiled next month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Sony’s next flagship has a codename “Yoshino” and will feature a 5.5-inch display with 2160 x 3840, a 4K resolution.
New Xperia will apparently be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset, which will also be running inside the Samsung Galaxy S8 as well as most other flagship smartphones launching this year. Device will also be paired with either 4GB or 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM. Camera setup is still unknown but the leak does suggest the handset will come with a new Sony IMX400 camera sensor with improved image quality.
In addition to the “Yoshino”, Sony could launch four other handsets as well. The “BlancBright” is said to be similar to the “Yoshino” in most areas, except that it will feature a lower resolution 5.5” Quad HD display.
Other rumored device is “Keyaki” and it will be a mid-range handset with a 5.2-inch display offering 1080p Full HD resolution. It is rumored to be powered by the MediaTek P20 chipset, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. It is set to feature a 23MP camera at the back and a 16MP unit on the front.
The affordable “Hinoki” will also be released. It will come with a 5-inch 720 x 1280 HD resolution display and run on the MediaTek Helio P20 chipset. The handset will offer 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. At the back will be a 16MP primary camera, while on the front it will be equipped with an 8MP camera for selfies and video calls.
