Leaked images of high-end Sony XZ1 leave little to the imagination
Sony’s IFA press conference will take place on August 31, when the company will announce the Xperia XZ1, among a few other devices. Last week, a CAD render video of the upcoming smartphone was released by OnLeaks. Now, what appear to be official press images of the handset have also popped up online, leaving little to the imagination.
Based on the images, the Xperia XZ1 will come in at least two color options: black and pink. In terms of design, the smartphone doesn’t offer anything new or exciting, as it kind of looks like a lot of other Xperia devices. It has quite large bezels on the top and bottom that make the device look a bit dated, especially when compared to the Samsung Galaxy S8, Essential Phone, and other bezel-less devices. You can check out all the images that have leaked in the gallery below.
Although specs haven’t been confirmed yet, we have heard quite a few rumors on this topic so far. The Xperia XZ1 is said to arrive with a 5.2-inch Full HD display and should be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset. There’s only a single camera on the back that will reportedly sport a 19 MP sensor and could be capable of capturing both 4K and 960fps slow motion video.
Rumors also suggest the device will offer 4 GB of RAM, a 12 MP selfie snapper, a 3,000 mAh battery, dual front-facing speakers, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. In terms of price, leaker Roland Quandt reports that the handset will set you back £599 in the UK, which translates to around $765. This definitely isn’t cheap, although the US price will likely be lower than the one in the UK, as it usually is.
