Two Sony flagship smartphones with full-screen design leaks via renders

2018 Sony Xperia devices front 2

Any love for the new Sony Xperia design?

Two new Xperia smartphones have leaked, sporting the in vogue fullscreen bezel-less designs.

While there are claims that Sony will launch its upcoming flagship smartphone with a full-screen design, a Gregorian website has shared the renders of two Sony smartphones likely to be launched next year.

Reportedly, the renders that we're seeing in this article are based on Sony's own design drafts. The metal bodied Xperia has a very clear fingerprint sensor on the rear and has a rounded corner design, which is quite strikingly different to the usual Sony Xperia design. There was only one major smartphone brand, Sony that has not launched any bezel-less phone yet and has been continuing with the OmniBalance design which it started implementing in 2013.

US B-1B bombers to fly over Korea in joint exercise
People in a Chinese province bordering North Korea have been offered a nuclear survival guide by the local state-run newspaper. Meanwhile China, North Korea's neighbour and lone major ally, again urged calm and said war was not the answer.

One of the smartphones with less rounded corners appears to feature a two-tone design at the back panel. The centre is made of glass, while the matte region is forming semicircles at the top and bottom. There is a dual camera setup with two large sized camera sensors at the top back panel that is separated by LED flash. They show a couple of Xperia smartphones, one flagship and the other a non-flagship model, with minimal bezels on the front. There's less information on this one, but it apparently has a fingerprint scanner on the back rather than in the screen. But, despite this massive screen, both smartphones look like they could potentially come with front-facing stereo speakers.

Given that Sony has been using the Mobile World Congress (MWC) show floor to take the wraps off its flagship smartphones consistently, we can expect these flagship smartphones to be unveiled at the upcoming MWC 2018. The interesting bit doesn't stop there as the it appears that Sony will finally ditch the side-mounted fingerprint scanner in favor of a rear-mounted sensor, something that could allow U.S. users to finally enjoy using this feature.

"According to previous leaks and rumour, Sony is expected to include either the Snapdragon 835, or the recently announced Snapdragon 845 SoC, as well as either 4GB or 6GB of RAM inside, while that display should be 5.7" in size with 4K resolution.

The phones are expected to be launched during the MWC 2018.
