in Rumours, Xperia XZ series

Sony Mobile is expected to launch three new Xperia devices at the IFA 2017 tradeshow at end of the August. Rumours are currently pointing to the three devices being the Xperia XZ1, Xperia XZ1 Compact and Xperia X1. Judging by the latest leak of the rear housing of the Xperia XZ1, it looks like it will follow a design that is very similar to the Xperia XZ Premium, particularly when comparing the back of the handset in terms of lens and camera sensor placement.

The lack of rear mounted fingerprint sensor in the rear chassis, highlights that the Xperia XZ1 is likely to feature a side-mounted sensor as seen in Xperia devices to date. In terms of specs, the current rumours doing the rounds point to the Xperia XZ1 sporting a 5.2-inch FHD display with Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4GB RAM and 3000mAh battery.

Sony is expected to launch a proper flagship compact this year, in the form of the Xperia XZ1 Compact, which is rumoured to have a 4.6-inch HD display with Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4GB RAM and a 2800mAh battery. Lastly, the Xperia X1 will be a mid-range device with 5-inch FHD display and powered by a Snapdragon S660 chipset, 4GB RAM and a 2800 mAh battery.

If we get any firm details on the handsets prior to launch, we will keep you posted.
