The Sony Xperia 1 is not even in stores yet, but we already know what its successor looks like. Surprisingly, the Sony Xperia 2 gets a smaller screen, but a triple camera.
Sony Xperia 2 renders surfaced
That appears from renders of the CashKaro website in collaboration with smartphone tasty OnLeaks. Renders are animations based on rumors that show the design of a smartphone.
Remarkably, the Sony Xperia 2, as the device is going to be called by OnLeaks, will get a smaller screen than the Sony Xperia 1. This device has yet to appear and will be available in stores from ‘this spring’ for 949 euros.
The Sony Xperia 2 gets a 6.2-inch display, according to the renders, while its predecessor has a 6.5-inch screen. The 21 by 9 aspect ratio display is ideal for watching movies and playing games because the display is longer than other smartphones.
Not only is the screen of the Sony Xperia 2 smaller than its predecessor, but the housing is also slimmer. The device would be 8.3 millimeters ‘thick’, more than a millimeter thinner than the Xperia 1. When you measure the camera head, the device is 9.2 millimeters thick.
The device gets a triple camera on the back. Unlike the Xperia 1, it is not in the middle of the back, but in the upper left corner. It is not yet known which resolutions the sensors will receive. It is, however, likely that Sony will place a wide-angle lens and zoom sensor on the back in addition to a primary sensor.
Furthermore, CashKaro says that the device is controlled by a Snapdragon 855 chip with 6GB of memory. The battery would have a capacity of 3000 mAh, which at first sight is rather scanty for a device with such a large screen.
The Sony Xperia 2 will probably be announced at IFA 2019. This consumer electronics trade fair takes place this year from 6 to 11 September in Berlin.
