Earlier this year at MWC 2019, Sony unveiled their flagship smartphone of the year in the form of the Sony Xperia 1. Now, it seems that Sony could already be working on a successor which could be unveiled at IFA which is scheduled to take place this coming September with the handset known as the Xperia 2.
Together with @OnLeaks, the folks at CashKaro have since put together what are alleged renders of the upcoming handset. So far, the renders by OnLeaks have proven to be right in the past, so there is a chance that these renders could be right again, but as always, they’re probably best taken with a grain of salt.
Based on the renders we’re seeing and also the rumored specs of the phone, the Xperia 2 is said to sport the same CinemaWide display with a 6.2-inch screen size. For those unfamiliar, the CinemaWide display is basically an aspect ratio that Sony claims is more enjoyable for watching movies.
While it is possible that they might be right, the end result is a smartphone that looks too “tall”, almost like the shape of a remote control. Other alleged specs include the use of the Snapdragon 855 chipset, 6GB of RAM, and a 3,000mAh battery with support for wireless charging.
