Sony Bezel-Less Xperia Smartphones For 2018 Leaked

Sony's 2018 Xperia flagship smartphones could have a radical redesign

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. But we do know that Sony's smartphone designs need to evolve, and perhaps the direction suggested by these new renders is the right one.

Now, in newly leaked images, alleged Sony Xperia smartphones with close to no bezels have just popped up online giving us a first look at what could be the first "bezel-less" smartphones from the Japanese OEM. The renders are said to be based on the designed drafts by the company. The Sony is now in news that it will be unveiling a bezel-less smartphone early next year. To look at, these phones seem to be very different from the existing Xperia smartphones.

One of the two phones comes with less rounded corners and features a two-tone design at the back.

The leaked images were shared by GizChina and it shows both the smartphones will feature a bezel-less tall display, which sports an aspect ratio of 18:9. The phones pictured above are two different models with two different camera setups, one of which is similar to the iPhone 8 Plus and its closely-grouped cameras, and the other features cameras that are set wider apart from each other. It is also reported to come with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage and will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset that was announced this week.

The other device has more pronounced rounded corners but with the same stereo speaker arrangement on the front. 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.

At the time, the details claimed the alleged Sony Xperia phone will ship with a 5.7-inch screen with a UHD resolution and Gorilla Glass 5 on top.

For 2018, it looks like Sony could be fixing at least one of those problems.
