The tech giant, Sony usually makes announcements for its smartphones after February or March, focusing mainly on big-screen TVs and premium audio equipment at CES in Las Vegas, but tech giant’s CES 2018 next may have a little bit of everything.
There are too many unreleased Xperia smartphones making up rumours right now for the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. In addition to at least one Snapdragon 845-powered flagship handset, and probably several slightly less yet powerful smartphones, a couple of new mid-rangers are apparently in the line too.
The Xperia XA2 Ultra should be the largest and most impressive from the company this year, based on the latest CAD renders leaks on interwebs.
All rumours up til now suggest the same old thick-bezeled 16:9 display, featuring a 6-inch Full HD screen. But the MediaTek Helio P20 processor will most likely get replaced with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630, aided by 4GB RAM for smooth multitasking and improved overall performance.
Excellent dual-front facing camera, pre-installed Android 8.0 Oreo software, and surprisingly, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The “regular-sized” Xperia XA2, which is likely to sport a 5-inch HD panel, has been rendered using computer-aided designs too, and it should also feature a rear fingerprint reader.
Even the Sony L2, which is also rumoured to feature a 5.5-inch screen and Android 7.0, has a biometric sensor at the back, suggesting maybe, just maybe the OEM has found a way to enable fingerprint recognition in the US.
