New Sony Xperia, codenamed PP10, leaks ahead of MWC

by XB on 21st February 2016

in Rumours, Xperia X series

Xperia PP10A new Sony Xperia has leaked courtesy of Evan Blass (@evleaks) ahead of MWC. The model, which is codenamed PP10, looks like a mid-ranger to us. Our understanding is that at least one model released tomorrow will use the MediaTek Helio P10 (MT6755) chipset with a 720p display. The new devices will also run Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The handset shows what looks like a brushed metal back, although this could just be a plastic effect. The model also has the fingerprint sensor of the Xperia Z5 series and dedicated camera button. It looks like Sony is using slightly newer UI as the lock screen hasn’t been seen before, sliding over the wallpaper underneath. Less than 24 hours to find out the full details at Sony’s press conference tomorrow morning.

Thanks to all that sent this in!

  • ehhh not sure about this one it looks a little off and the speaker lines are back :(

  • Ambitious Man

    I have one, Xperia E6:
    – 5″ HD.
    – SoC MT6735.
    – Ram and storage are more than E4 (I can’t talk about this at the moment).
    – Camera front and back like M4 Aqua.
    – Design similar to E4.
    – Have 4G LTE, dual sim.

    wallpaper looks different i think they rebuild SonyUi or it’s just wallpaper not whole theme D

    I’m excited! unfortunately it’s not for the phone, but it’s for the new UI for Marshmallow :)

  • jokensy

    The Lockscreen looks weird…

  • Tomislav Mati?

    I think if this is true that this is midrange phone because Mediatek Helio P10 is midrange chipset not entry level chipset. And yes, Android 6 will bring slightly new UI. Only what I don’t like in this new UI on picture is Google battery icon. Sony battery icon is more beautiful.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Evan Blass looks weird too… Why Sony?

  • Sadman Khan

    So basically they really just wanted the update to roll out some time after MCW so that they can showcase it there. *sigh*

  • razorg

    What’s wrong with it? I think it’s a wise choice to go full on with Qualcomm on the flagship Z devices and use relatively cheaper but as good Mediatek chips on mid-range devices…

  • Saladinho

    i dunno i started to hate sony so much after this big fail on z5 camera ….why cant they just copy paste s6 camera or even iphone ….:S

  • aidy.lucas

    How can you have a Xperia device that’s not in production yet let alone released.

  • aidy.lucas

    M2 replacement?

  • Ambitious Man

    NO. It’s real.

  • Ambitious Man

    No. The speaker of E6 is similar to Z5,

  • Dean Newell

    If you’re being truthful, could we have a quick shot of the back?

  • Nodar Sixarulidze

    and MT6735 chipset?

    this is Xperia M6?

  • Tomislav Mati?

    I think M4 Aqua replacement.

  • Rutang

    Why volume buttons are so low.. It’s useless and unnatural for fingers. Rest looks good for a midrange

  • Tomislav Mati?

    Volume buttons are in naturale position if you use as camera zoom. But for volume position it is bad.

  • iia3ezu

    Mediatek crap and 720p… no thanks.

    It’s a cheap ‘C’ or ‘E’ phone… you get what you pay for.

  • iia3ezu

    It’s a cheap phone, so you’ll have to use cheap parts to reduce the cost of production.

    @ razorg
    Mediatek chips are still far behind Qualcomm’s. There’s improvement, but still too much of a gap. Then again, if Sony is using cheaper parts to compete on price, performance isn’t a priority.

  • iia3ezu

    Samsung and Apple invest a lot in the R&D of phone camera performance. You can’t just ‘copy’ things over, especially the software (post-processing).

    Sony lacks ambition in such matters: it is more content to be an OEM and sell camera sensors to other manufacturers.

  • Tomislav Mati?

    What performans? If you prefer gaming, 4K video recording or something like that in midrange class you are so wrong. M5 is unique device. High end chipset and parts in high midrange phone. Sony UI on all their devices works great even in lowend devices so for midrange phone this device is going to be good. And I think there will not be lags like on M4 Aqua sometimes.

  • fluxx

    It doesn’t look soooooo big. If the screen is smaller than 5″ then 720p is quit good.

  • Tomislav Mati?

    C series is good for midrange phone. But I think it is not going to be another C series device because there is no front flash.

  • Zbaeia

    Sony Xperia m4 Plus ????????????????????????

  • Kean2000

    why is Sony so desperate to sell phones to women?

  • Zbaeia

    Sony Xperia C6 ?????

  • Ailan Hidaz

    Yet the mediatek “crap” in the M5 beats a whole lot of phones.

  • apolloa

    Wow, well if that’s going to be a new midrange phone then I can only imagine what next Z range looks like? Or could this be the Z6? Their were rumours of a metal design and wrap around sides after all? But the bezels seem a tad big.

    Looks Z3ish and great. Metalic finish looks great as well. I hope they implement metalic grey finish tk their flagships :)

    i wanna see mediatek haters who are the experts in processors field to comment on this form ……….grabs popcorn

  • Ryuzaki Raiga

    xperia M series only use snapdragon

  • I give you…….

    Xperia Aztek!

  • Ryuzaki Raiga

    agree with u, if sony using mediatek. it is better buying xiaomi. majority of my people if they gonna buy cheap phone they will go xiaomi, lenovo or asus rather than cheap sony. cheap xperia only got 1 or 2 major update then sony will forget about it

  • The clock color change according to the wallpaper

  • Saladinho

    thanks for clearing it out,
    hope they realize that making a trash camera over and over again in every flagship will take the company mobile department to their doom!
    they are losing their loyal customers because of this

  • Stergios Papoutsoglou

    Xperia m5 uses a Mediatek MT6795 Helio X10

  • Sadman Khan

    I remember you going on and on about x20. Turns out, hardly anyone is gonna use it. Why is that?

  • Abdul Ghani

    x20 not released

  • Ryan

    Marshmellow gonna look and taste soo good on my Z5 !!!!! Already loving the new lockscreen

    Sony will Surprise you all tomorrow and sadly not in a good way.
    Sony is changing it’s course but as I see it it’s not the way they should go.

  • Makozak

    Z5 Cam is not a fail, honestly it’s a great improvement to ex-Sony camera’s.

    Comparing it to S6, meh, maybe.
    But to iPhone ? Please no. I’m not an Apple Hater, i do own one in fact, but Z5 Cam is with no doubt better.

  • Makozak

    New Lock Screen :D
    Is this the new firmware we are waiting to test ?
    Looks good :)

    good design, nice ui, looks sometng diffrnt, ppl should stop compaing, looks better dan any other OEM

    Wrong, iphone 6s plus overall has a better camera due to better auto mode, better low light shots. Sony mobile image processing is trash and the camera lacks ois. But dont’ take my word for it, any trained eye can see the noise party in all z5 shots compared to the low noise in s6, and v10 and even 6s plus shots. Manual mode doesn’t change shit in this regard.

  • Deads

    Mediatek isnt bad. Problem is that they arent that good at releasing info thats needed for good custom roms.
    Another downside is that using 1 brands SOC for the high end and another companys SOC for the midrange, it lowers the chance of updates.

  • Sadman Khan

    Or maybe it’s just not good enough so hardly anyone bothered to adopt it. Quality over Quantity (Cores)

  • nick

    true for battery icon also Sony wifi and signal were better

  • ShinOrochiX

    Please, no mediatek, pls! It looks so nice, I am just looking for a decent mid ranger, would love to see one with good specs and nice design.

    Last thing I want is a nice phone that will not receive software updates.

    Evan and Sony are both sick, forgive them.

  • smartuser8

    Because the bitch phone will be always the white iPhone

  • dwfak

    wifi icon from sony is terrible in my opinion

  • Sadman Khan

    The problem with mediatek mainly is developer support. Mediatek doesn’t release the kernel sources and all properly and sometimes they don’t allow you to unlock the bootloader even. So yeah it’s a pretty big problem for a lot of us

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I actually prefer the Google icon, or well if i could wish for a better one: the one from Sonys android 4.3 UI that ican was AWESOME :D

  • Timel

    I’m very exciting for the new UI

    I still have hope that finally Sony will adapt its gorgeous What’s New app UI on the entire Xperia UI…

  • Dimitrije Dk

    It looks interesting, hopefully we get the new Ui with the new beta firmware from Sony.

  • Jaissal S

    This phone looks very sleek, much like that of the Z5! I’m looking forward to the annoucement. Love Sony! maybe M6?

  • mike

    Brushed metal back is ugly

  • GregAlex

    New UI will come to all Xperia’s which get Marshmallow Update?

  • Yet we use it for controlling volume way more often than camera zooming. I’ve taken over 10,000 pictures with my xperia z2, and I NEVER remember zooming in with my volume keys. Of course, someone out there will use the volume keys for zoom, but over 98% use case, the volume keys are for music volume.

    My point? The volume buttons are at a horrible position. Sony failed once again! They never learn.

  • Who says PINK is for women? By the way, is there any color called PINK in this world?
