Sony has already sent out press invites for its MWC event that will take place on February 27. The company is expected to announce quite a few new smartphones including the successor to the Xperia XA. The device in question, which carries the model number G3121, has recently leaked in a video posted on YouTube.

Based on the video, we can see that the device has thin bezels on both sides of the screen, just like last year’s Xperia XA. However, the bezels on the top and below the screen appear to be a bit bigger, which makes the phone look quite tall. In terms of specs, the Xperia XA (2017) is expected to come with a 720p display and will likely be powered by the MediaTek Helio P20 chipset. It will feature a 23 MP camera and run Android 7.0 Nougat.

We can also see that the smartphone has a microSD card slot on the right side and sports a plastic back in matte black. But we do expect that the device will be available in a few more colors once it hits markets across the globe. Other specifications of the smartphone remain a mystery for now but will be revealed soon. As already mentioned, Sony will take the wraps of the device in less than a month.

In addition to the Xperia XA (2017), the company might also announce the second generation of the Xperia X and Xperia X Performance that were unveiled back at Mobile World Congress in 2016.
