Sony & Xperia 1 only came to the US last month, but next week the company may already be planning to announce a successor to the flagship smartphone, specifically on September 5 at 12:00 PM BST / 7AM ET during IFA 2019. Rumor has it that the model is called the Xperia 2, and according to Xperia blog (through 9to5Google), we may see it for the first time in a series of leaked images.
It is easy to distinguish the Xperia 1 from previous phones from Sony. Together with the cheaper Sony Xperia 10, it was the company's first devices with a 21: 9 aspect ratio. It resulted in a long, thin screen that is a perfect place to watch movies.
The device shown in the leaked view above appears to have been cut from the same canvas, although the reversing camera system has shifted to the left side of the back of the phone. Everything else that appears in the leaked images, including the location of the ear speaker and the assortment and the order of buttons and fingerprint sensor on the right side of the phone, are exactly the same.
Sony is notoriously slow to make major changes to its telephone line, and if these leaks are accurate, it seems to keep the tradition going. It is difficult to speculate what could be considerably different on the inside of this new device. The Xperia 1 already has the Snapdragon 855 and I don't see Sony taking the lead of some gaming-focused phones, such as the Black Shark 2 Pro and Asus ROG Phone II, when implementing the newer Snapdragon 855 Plus processor. However, if Sony enters a display with a fast refresh rate, such as the OnePlus 7 Pro and Razer Phone 2, take my interest into account.
We are present at IFA 2019, so keep an eye out to see if Sony is bringing a number of new phones to the show.
