Last year, when talks of Sony shutting down its smartphone division were peaking, the brand did a U-turn and came out with its X-series of handsets. These handsets were received quite well by everyone and has managed to mark the comeback of the Japanese handset brand. It seems that the brand is now gearing up to launch the next generation of the series, this year at the Mobile World Congress to be held at Barcelona, Spain. A leaked image has turned up on Chinese social network, which shows the upcoming flagship device Xperia X2 in all its glory. However, the leaked image only shows the front panel of the handset clearly. We can make out from the rendition that the upcoming device will feature a nearly bezel-less, curved display along with the signature Omnibalance design of the brand that we saw in previous X series handsets. Also, we can make out a dedicated shutter button, volume buttons placed a little lower than usual and a slight indention on the left edge for what we assume to fingerprint scanner.
According to the rumour mills, the Xperia X2 is expected to be powered by a Helio P20 chipset with 4 GB of RAM, which is pretty impressive. The front panel is most likely to be dominated by a large 5-inch display, which is expected to be a full HD unit. The camera on the rear panel of the handset is expected to be a 23 Megapixels unit with tri-sensor module. Notably, this could be the same camera that is found on the likes of Xperia XZ. The front panel of the handset will sport a 16 Megapixels selfie snapper in all probability. Rest of the specifications are currently not known, but we can expect a 3000 mAh battery with Quick Charging, 64 GB internal storage, expandable memory and Sony's proprietary features like Bravia Engine 2 and Triluminous display. We can expect the brand to launch the handset at the upcoming event and price it in the same bracket as previous handsets.
