Alleged image of the Sony Xperia XZ2, design could be similar to the XZ Pro
A few hours ago, we reported on a
The naming of the device certainly suggests that this could be Sony’s 2018 flagship, and now, thanks to a new leak, we have a spec sheet that could support this claim. The screenshots (you can see them in the gallery below) first appeared in the comment section of a Xperia Blog article.
Needless to say, this information is speculative and could be far from the truth, but the spec sheet does bear a strong resemblance to official documents that Sony has shared in the past. Additionally, this is the second time in which the name “Xperia XZ Pro” has been mentioned in a leak. The screenshots are a bit hard to read, so we’ve summarized all the important bits in the table below.

These specs look too good to be true, don’t they? If we assume that this information is correct, we are looking at one of the most beastly smartphones of next year.
The Xperia XZ Pro could end up being the first Sony phone with an OLED screen. Moreover, this could be the first commercially available handset that features a 4K HDR OLED panel. Another first for Sony would be the dual main camera (looks promising, to say the least) and the inclusion of the BIONZ image processing engine that can be found on Sony’s professional DSLR cameras. Oh, and did we mention that Sony’s next generation of phones will feature anentirely new design?
The leaked list that we mentioned at the beginning of the article states that the XZ Pro will get announced in June of 2018, but we’re certainly hopeful that Sony won’t stray off its usual course of action and unveil the phone at MWC at the end of February.
