in Rumours

xperia-xa-2017-01A render has leaked from @OnLeaks showing what is believed to be a new 2017 Sony Xperia model. According to the leak, this model has a 5-inch display with a USB Type-C port and dimensions of 145 x 66.8 x 8.0mm. If real, it could be a successor of the Xperia X, or XA, but we won’t know for sure until we get to see some further leaks. We will keep you posted as we hear more.

Via SlashLeaks.

Thanks MadMiraj and Marinko!

    Since it has no fingerprint scanner I guess it’s the XA successor not Xperia X successor.

  • jnsg

    Literally what I thought.

  • ymytbb .

    The loop design looks so dated I hate it

  • Love it :D

  • And we are back again to speakerslits at the edge it’s like Sony can’t decide so they just choose whatever word of advise if you want speakerslits again just wait for the next model

  • “This might be the #SONY #XPERIA XA sucessor”

    People say it might come with snapdragon 820…
    For mid range is too much..
    Maybe the 627 or 618…
    And 3gb ram, 32 of internal

  • SonyMan

    Sony has only 2 models based on loop surface design and you already hate it…?? After only 3 months on the shelves?? you’re either a hater or vulgar and crude! I bet you’re all of them. If you don’t like it keep it for yourself, otherwise if you wanna discuss about it just state your opinion with regards to a response. Stating you hate a design language that’s only on 2 devices versus the omnibalance design that was shared among 6 different Z series then you’ve got a problem. And it’s from the ones that can’t be solved by explaining since you obviously can’t understand that this design is sth new for Sony smartphones…if you come with an excuse like it looks like 2012 lumias or whatever then don’t even bother…just keep drowning yourself till it can get the difference between materials, body structure, build quality and a seamless loop chassis.

  • Night Guy

    Its just like M series, where they just copy flagship design.

  • Phil Gym

    Agreed. XZ is not selling at all because of old design.

  • betatesterz

    Interestingly they did away with that triple imaging sensor thingie.

  • SonyMan

    Xz might not be selling at your country because it’s crowded with people like you that they think XZ’s desigh language is old. What’s important is that you’ve never seen or touched a device like XZ before nor your people since they don’t buy it. The actual reason it’s unpopular among users in my opinion is because of the lack of 4gb of ram (or 6gb for specific devices) that other oems offers for the same money Sony asks. If XZ was priced for your pocket you wouldn’t complain or play the hardcore demanding consumer you’re posing to be. But as said before, just go to a nearby store, if you have any where you live, and give it a try before you start talking bs from opinions and conclusions you’ve made through photos. If you think there is at least one device in the world that has the same design and build structure as XZ I dare you name it. I only need one, not two nor three…Just one or else STFU and go cry to your mama in case she spares you the money to get a device half as good as XZ is!!

  • SonyMan

    So if I get you right your camera expertise and relation of taking pictures tells you that a fully automated system for calibrating White Balance and Color Saturation based on more than 2 different parameters in accordance with its sensor is a “thingie” that probably you don’t like because…??? Lucky guess: looks ugly!? and no it doesn’t if you choose a color that hides it discretely.

  • Khairul Shafiq

    look ugly and too cliche hm

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    Beautiful design this new Xperias

  • hansip

    No, in Indonesia where Sony can’t enter market legally yet, the black market seller confessed that XZ is the most bought phone from him.

  • Nodar Sixarulidze
  • Yuen Lui

    Agree. Seems to be the G3112 and G3121 suggested before

  • Serdar Aytamaner

    A Z5 Premium successor à la XZ-style is badly needed.

  • KarFar

    Looks good but I think fingerprint scanners in midrangers should be normal in 2017

  • jokensy

    Who the f*ck told Sony that the XZ design was awesome and that all future Xperias should look the same?

  • Ana Helušić

    So nice, good job Sony!

  • Subham Dey

    no fingerprint scanner in 2017’s mid range model???? seriously what’s wrong with sony???

  • Subham Dey

    according to all rumors sony will be unveiling 4 new xperia models early next year..may be CES or may be MWC..
    1)xperia xa 2/xa 2017
    2)xa ultra 2/xa ultra 2017
    3)X2/X 2017
    4)X performance 2/X performance 2017/X premium..
    none of them will be powered by the SD 835 soc.. and may be they will launch SD 835 powered device in IFA 2017… probably the xperia XZ2/XZ 2017!

  • azzido

    XZ design is awesome!

  • azzido

    Afterusing different models I prefer the ones from XZ / Z3 more than the ones from XZ especially as it is easier to clean it from dust.

  • azzido

    XZ is not that bad, it is missing few things:

    1. Much more RAM
    2. better camera software
    3. Advertising

  • SonyMan

    That’s my point…XZ is way better than anyone thinks!! It lacks minor details but for the price is being sold here in my country it just justifies it if you consider it’s only one month on our dealers and retailers. We currently have all colors available and they all cost 530 euro or 550 US dollars or 440 British pounds.

  • betatesterz

    WHOoowww~ what’s with that defensive response? I was just commenting on an observation about the missing feature that they promote so much on the XZ which i’m currently using. Thought it would be a staple for their future flagships so found that it was interesting they removed it here. In no ways did i mentioned it looked ugly.

  • Moisés

    This photo belongs to new XA, no fingerprint scanner

  • SonyMan

    My bad then…I wasn’t trying to offend you…just trying to understand why you would thing odd that they omitted triple imaging sensor on a mid range device…like it was mentioned before, its like M series…they try their best to be flagships but in reality they are not. I find triple imaging sensor a really nice set of assisting camera sensor although I don’t own one…I just gives me so many ideas on how it could be used in order to make the whole camera experience to the next level just by updating through software.I know Sony doesn’t have the best camera app in the world available but xda community really give their best to bring better and more enhanced experiences to our devices. I remember using camera mods on Z, Z1 and Z3 and the final result was indeed better than the original. Enjoy your device!

  • SonyMan

    your mom says its gorgeous, what’s wrong with you?? Ohh, I know…You do like J7s and A5s from galaxy line more than this so do us a favor and go get an sd615/7 device for 400 dollars that this ugly device won’t even need to boot to blow them out of the map! Go get your beautiful device whichever this is and let the others get this with the “ugly” design…

  • jokensy

    I don’t give a f*ck about Samsung phones. I’m an Xperia user and I’ve owned several sony phones until now. All previous Xperia phones (Z2, Z3, Z5, Z5P, C5 Ultra, etc) they all look awesome, NOT the XZ with its sh*tty large bezels!…and don’t mention my mother!

  • SonyMan

    Well you don’t seem like one and this response attitude definitely doesn’t justify it…! I’d tou don’t like XZ design it’s OK but I’d you think that it will be the only phone that’ll look like this on this range of Sony phones then I’m sure you’ll be a Sony greater in no time…Sony never changes design language between models from the day it exists. Too bad your dull and vulgar likings cannot see how gorgeous this phones are and are gonna be till a new design is introduced after 5 XZ generations or so…

  • Moisés

    The design is based on what japanese people like…
    They love to see the chocolate bar design..

  • Moisés

    I hope they bring it in copper and aqua green just like z3+

  • Sridu

    Sony has stopped inventing probably. Huge top bezel is thumbs down from me.

  • kurakuradisco

    i prefer this old design better than “iclone design”… originality is the most important thing for me

  • betatesterz

    Np, I’ve also just realised the article was referring to successor of the XA, which was the mid-range variant. I misread it as the upcoming flagship thus was wondering why a flagship feature from the previous generation was omitted.

  • Moisés

    I like this speaker, just like z5..
    Looks nicer

  • Sharp Edge

    It looks identical to the XZ. They’re not even trying remotely hard anymore. It’ll probably be plastic again and Sony is going to wonder why they have lost another portion of their fans. How much longer do I have to hold on to my Z5P? Is it so much to ask for another 5.5″+ phone made from metal and stuffed with the newest chips? I’m not asking for holograms or built-in coffee maker. Just something that won’t be a shame to drop on a desk next to Samsung’s offerings. I have a feeling that I might actually join the Samsung crowd (despite how much I have always laughed at them) if Sony doesn’t release anything noteworthy in the next 6 months.

  • Paul L

    Unless the bring back the Xperia Z range and start being more innovative, I’m done with Sony. I love my Z5, but it’s like Sony has given up completely.

  • Moisés

    Last year people were talking about a phone called X Premium.
    It may be released this time.

    It seems there is a new 5,5″ UHD on the way. With HDR display , snapdragon 835, 4gb ram, 64gb, ip68, 25mp /13 mp . It might come next semester.

  • Andys42

    I agree. I am still using my Z5 Premium and just bought a Z5 for my daughter for xmas. Unless the next Sony has a 4K screen and similar spec to the rumoured Samsung S8, I too will be moving from Sony. They have not had a flagship since the Z5 Premium.

  • Alex Tan Hao Nam

    I hope Sony Xperia XZ2 can have the fingerprint sensor back on the power button like the previous gen of xperia

  • Alex Tan Hao Nam

    If possible Sony can put the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone since I heard about the fingerprint sensor on the back if more comfortable for small and big hand users,if it really possible then Sony could make the phone even more slim and thin and light
