We know that Sony Mobile is planning to launch a new Xperia handset with front-facing flash. The device is said to sport a 6-inch 1080p display and hands-on pics were spotted last month. Then, more recently, benchmarks point to the device being powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 MT6755 chipset, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage with a 21MP rear camera and 16MP front-facing camera.
The device is widely expected to be marketed as part of the Xperia C series given the use of front-facing flash. Some have tagged the handset as the Xperia C6 Ultra, but now Digi-wo is suggesting the handset could come to the market as the Xperia X Ultra instead. This would make sense, as in many respects, the phone already looks very similar to the Xperia XA.
The guys over at Nowhereelse.fr have managed to get the full schematics of the device and created some 3D renders and a quick video tour. According to the report, this new device will have dimensions of 164.2 x 79.4 x 8.4mm, which compares to the Xperia C5 Ultra with dimensions of 164.2 x 79.6 x 8.2mm. If these dimensions are correct it pretty much assures that the handset will have a 6-inch display. We’ll bring you more details as we have it.
