Sony Xperia phones in 2018 could sport full-screen displays, renders suggest

2018 Sony Xperia Devices back 1

Reports have begun streaming in about a set of renders/leaked images of what could be Sony's upcoming flagship devices. If this happens to be true, the company will be ditching the OmniBalance design language that it started implementing in 2013 in favor of the new trend - full-screen design.

Georgian* website Vortex.ge claims to have some details about the design and features of Sony's 2018 flagship smartphone, in addition to info about the design of a second (non-flagship) Xperia.

We have been coming across several rumors and speculations that Sony will be unveiling a bezel-less smartphone early next year.

Citing Trump, John Lewis Will Skip Mississippi Civil Rights Museum Opening
The statement encouraged Mississippians and Americans to visit "this historic civil rights museum" after Trump departs. The struggles represented in this museum exemplify the truth of what really happened in Mississippi.

The renders that are present in this post are said to be based on designed drafts by Sony. It does seem questionable that the two phones will have the Snapdragon 845 chipset since Samsung will have early access to the chipset similar to previous year. The phones are slightly different in size and shape, where one adopts more rounded edges as compared to the other, but Sony's traditional sharp edges seem to be disappearing.

Flip the phones in front, and you'll see the most 2017 thing about them - super slim bezels. The upper curved matte portion has two large-sized camera sensors that are oddly separated with a LED flash in between. The fingerprint sensor is expected to be an under-screen one and could be an upgraded version of the existing Xperia XZ Premium. The image shows that both the phones will feature stereo speakers located at the top and bottom part of the front panel. The non-flagship model, on the other hand, will sport a metal unibody design with the fingerprint sensor on the back. These will also reportedly be one of the first devices to feature Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 845 processor with 6GB of RAM and Android Oreo.

This is the first major leak of Sony Xperia phones which has appeared after a long time, while there is still enough time in the launch of these phones. Secondly they could simply be fan-made renders, so do take it with a grain of salt.
