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

It appears that Sony will be re-imagining its whole smartphone lineup come 2018.

The thing about Sony's smartphones is that while they might pack some pretty impressive hardware features and specs, the design can be a bit "boring" as they've more or less kept to the same design over the past few years, with some slight changes here and there.

Now, in newly leaked images, alleged Sony Xperia smartphones with close to no bezels have just popped up online giving us a first look at what could be the first "bezel-less" smartphones from the Japanese OEM.

The renders, courtesy Vortex.ge, have been based on Sony's own design drafts. The Sony is now in news that it will be unveiling a bezel-less smartphone early next year.

The other phone pictured is expected to be a lower-end one but still looks premium, so perhaps it's the Sony Xperia XZ2.

The device having less rounded corners features a two-tone design for its back panel. The upper curved matte part of the device seems to house the two large-sized camera sensors those are separated by the LED flash at the middle. On the front there is a bezel-less display and also shows dual front-facing speakers.

Both phones have dual-camera setups on the rear, however the dual-camera setups are very much different. It is also reported to come with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage and will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset that was announced this week.

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. As noted, the Galaxy S8 has a massive 5.8-inch display screen and thanks to its bezel-less design, it only measures 148mm tall. Coming to the device on the right, it features a matte finish and one can spot the dual-camera setup at the top-left corner along with LED flash and some sensors. However, like every leak, there is no way to authenticate the images, so we suggest you take this report with a pinch of salt.
