Sony at the IFA event on 1st September might unveil its highly anticipated Sony XR smartphone. Although the official website of the company indicates the launch of Sony Xperia XZ and Sony Xperia X Compact instead. For the time being Evan Blass, a prolific tipster posted a leaked picture of the smartphones.
Firstly, let’s discuss the smartphones which are officially listed on a company site. Although nothing concrete has been revealed except the names. The Sony’s site Czech posted the Xperia XZ along with a caption ‘photography’ and mention Xperia X Compact with caption ‘picture without blur,’ which clearly indicate the impressive optical performance.
Now the reports suggest that the spotted Xperia XZ is, in fact, the much speculated Xperia XR. Though there is not much clearness on this. Evan Blass has also shared an image of what it claims to be Sony Xperia X Compact. Sony never had a compact variant before in the X series. It seems to have the same design as seen on the other handset in this series.
The company dropped its Z series flagship to replace it with the X series. The company announced the re-branding in May at MWC, Barcelona, and unveiled the Xperia X, Xperia XA, and Xperia X Performance.
If the rumored Sony Xperia X Compact variant is, in fact, true, then it should be a smaller version of the 5-inch Xperia X smartphone.TechTastic has also posted some images of Sony Xperia X Compact. The website claims that the smartphone will sport a 4.6-inch display, either 3GB or 4GB RAM, powered by Snapdragon 820 SoC, 2700mAh battery, and a USB Type-C port.
There is also a buzz that Sony will also announce the Xperia XR smartphone at IFA. The leaked images hint that the Xperia XR will come with a 5.1-inch display and will be powered by Snapdragon 820 processor. The handset also features a dual-LED flash module in the rear camera, and the dimensions are measured at 146.4*71.9*8.1mm.
Anyhow the event is just a week away the official will be revealed soon. Recently Sony has claimed to reduce its focus on the Indian market due to substandard performance. It only expects a 0.3 percent growth in the US, I.ndia, and China.
