Today, a new Sony Xperia smartphone passes through FCC in the United States. There also isn't hard evidence that the Sony device in question, which has the FCC ID number of PY7-21831A, is the company's next flagship.
FCC listing doesn't reveal much about the phone's specifications or its features, we can assume it to be a mid-range smartphone from the company. Now, we just found out another Xperia phone has hit the FCC with some information that points to a phone that will not have a 3.5mm headphone jack. If it decides to drop the headphone jack from its phones-and potentially its other gadgets- it could have industry-wide repercussions. Recently another report claimed that Sony might be working on a device with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset.
This device is listed with the following details: 5.7-inch screen, 16:9 or 18:9 display ratio, and 152.79 x 72.42mm. The smartphone will come with a single port which will be used for both charging and listening to music.
It's not uncommon to see Sony's Xperia smartphones go year to year without any major changes.
We're assuming the next Xperia phone sans the 3.5mm headphone jack will finally be revealed at the upcoming Mobile World Congress happening in about a month from now.
As a reminder the Xperia XZ pro is rumored to feature a 5.7 inch display with a 4K resolution and the handset is said to feature Qualcomm's new flagship mobile processor the Snapdragon 845.
On the camera front, the device to come with a dual rear camera setup at the back panel. All the major flagship smartphones in the second half of 2017 came with 18:9 displays and dual cameras, there are no standout features introduced with the 2017 Xperia smartphones. At the front, there will be a 13 Megapixel of Selfie Shooter camera also available. So you can take flawless selfies and can make full HD video calls through your phone.
Furthermore, the device would come with 6GB of RAM. The battery capacity has been leaked as 3,420mAh and the phone will also get IP68 certification.
That ain't all we know about the Sony Xperia XZ Pro, either. What do you expect from this event?
