Sony confirms launch of three "Xperia" handsets during MWC

The follow up to the Sony Xperia XZ will be out next month

The site is putting the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact release dates as "sometime in March".

Sony has long used its OmniBalance design, which put large bezels at the top and bottom of the device. But Sony is not very far behind in the competition league as it is geared to introduce its first full screen smartphone flagships to its consumer base. The XZ2 boasts a 5.7-inch screen, while the compact version measures at 5.0 inches.

The two phones appear to be mostly similar, other than their different sizes. Both will be available in black, silver, green, and pink.

In the wake of an increasing rollout of nearly bezel-less, 18:9 displays by the smartphone manufacturers, Sony had stuck to the outdated bezel model till date.

On the specifications side of the fence, both devices will launch on Android 8.0, and will be powered by the Snapdragon 845.

Amarinder Singh had refused to meet Canadian Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan during the latter's visit to Punjab a year ago . Notably India is a big market for Canada for farm products, particularly lentils and chickpeas, as well as for uranium.

The XZ2 looks to feature 3D-molded glass on both sides of its aluminum body, while the XZ2 Compact will be made with a non-scratch polycarbonate material.

Past rumors also indicated that Sony would bring to market three new smartphones with Snapdragon 660 chipset during the Mobile World Congress, but hope that the company will announce two line tops conflicting with this information. Both phones have Gorilla Glass 5 protecting their full-HD LCDs. It will still be capable of recording in 4K HDR with super slow motion capture in FHD resolution. The XZ2 will have wireless charging capabilities, and have a 3180 mAh battery. He also says that both phones will have rear fingerprint sensors like the Xperia XA2 and the XA2 Ultra - the sensor is now separate from the power button. The XZ2 will feature a 3,180 mAh battery that can be charged via USB-C or wirelessly, while the XZ2 Compact, with its 2,870 mAh battery, can only be charged with a wire.

One other feature that is reserved for the Xperia XZ2 (and not its smaller counterpart) is a haptic feedback system.

More details will be revealed during the MWC 2018 trade show and we'll be here to provide you with all the necessary details on the matter.
