The successor of Xperia XZ smartphone, Xperia XZ1, has once again paid a visit to the online world ahead of its official launch. This time around the flagship device was revealed in full 3D renders and a 360-degree video. Touted to be the successor of last year's Xperia XZ, the Xperia XZ1 continues to carry forward Sony's equilibrium phone design, instead of joining the group of upcoming bezel-less smartphones.
Sony Xperia XZ1, according to leaks, appear to have a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer, as well as the SIM card slot on the left side. In the renders, the volume up and down buttons, the power button, and the dedicated camera button on the right side of the device can easily be seen, Android Headlines reported.
The Sony Xperia XZ1 is thinner than the previous XZs, which is about 8.2 mm but includes a small camera bump at the back. Right next to the camera, the sensors and LED flash are lined up in a perfectly horizontal manner; with the black sensor strip really standing out on the blue metal base. Unfortunately, the phone doesn't seem to have a dual-camera setup, but according to rumors, it may feature a 19-megapixel sensor with 4K video recording capabilities. In addition to this, the 960fps slow-motion video mode is also expected to be seen in the flagship. XZ1 will boast a 12-megapixel front-facing camera as well, as reported by Devs-lab.
AS with specs sheet based on recent GFXBench benchmarks, the device is said to come with Android 8.0 for the software version, while being powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage space. The Xperia XZ1 will also have support for expandable storage via microSD card.
It looks like Sony may keep the headphone jack as a 3.5mm audio port, which can be seen on the top of the phone in the leaked images. For the release date, Sony has yet to confirm this device, but it's expected to make an appearance at IFA in September.
