The IFA is a popular starting point for Sony for the presentation of new smartphones., Also this year several new releases are not unlikely. According to new rumors, Sony will after a pause again show a compact top model with Snapdragon 835.
The rumors of Review.ge revolve especially around latecomers of the upper group of the Xperia-X series and do not appear unrealistic. At the Mobile World Congress 2017, Sony has presented the Xperia XZ Premium (hands-on) its new top model with Snapdragon 835 and new camera with 960-FPS-time-lapse. The previous top model, the Xperia XZ (test) was reworked with otherwise new hardware with the new Motion Eye called camera and renamed as Xperia XZs.
The XZs follows the XZ1
At the IFA, the Xperia XZ will be reworked once more, this time with the new Snapdragon 835, again 4 GB RAM and a 3,000 mAh measuring battery. As with Xperia XZ and XZs, the display should measure 5.2 inches and dissolve with Full HD. The smartphone is to omit the s addition and instead carry the name Xperia XZ1. Similarly, Sony had already succeeded in the successor to the XA, which bears the name XA1 – the nomenclature would fit in principle. Also a successor for the XZs after a year would fit to Sony’s product policy, especially since the upgrade based on the rumors is more noticeable.
After 1.5 years again a compact top model
In addition, Sony will continue an old tradition at the IFA 2017 and also offer the top model in a compact form. The Xperia XZ1 Compact with Snapdragon 835 would be a small flagship since the end of 2015 since the Xperia Z5 Compact (Test). In the meantime, the Xperia X Compact (test) was followed by a compact mid-range model.
As with the quasi-predecessor, the resolution of the 4.6-inch screen is only 1.280 × 720 pixels – another tradition, because the resolution was still no higher in a compact model. For the year 2017, however, this appears small even with the comparatively small display. Other features include 4 GB of RAM and a 2,800 mAh battery.
Xperia X1 for the upper middle class
As a third new smartphone is called the X1, the successor to the Xperia X last spring. The equipment is to meet with a Snapdragon 660, 4 GB RAM as well as Full HD on five inches again the upper middle class.
