We are already in the second quarter of 2017, and if we have been paying a close attention, we should know by now that upcoming handsets, due to unveil later this year will start making it to rumor mills online.
Sony’s alleged flagship device has been reportedly suggested to see a launch at this year’s IFA 2017 trade show which is slated for September 1.
Similar to smartphone manufacturers like LG and Samsung, Sony is said to be releasing its next flagship with an aspect ratio of 18:9, and the handset will pack a screen size of 6-inches.
According to one Weibo tipster who managed to leak the information, also discloses that Sony will be making use of Japan Display’s console on its next generation flagship which reportedly saw mass productions recently.
If the new information is anything to go by, then Sony will be the third major Android OEM manufacturer joining the leagues of other handset makers like LG with the G6 and Samsung with the Galaxy S8 – both of which offer bezel-less full-screen display panels at the front.
One report also made mention that Sony will be holding a press event on August 31 just ahead of IFA 2017 where it is expected to reveal a new handset.
This information hints that Sony will likely showcase its rumored flagship handset with the top end 6-inch display with aspect ratio 18:9.
The Japanese company, earlier this year affirmed that it will not unveil successors of its ‘Premium Standard’ handsets this year with the Xperia X and Xperia X Compact as an inclusion.
