Well, we have good news as renders and specs have leaked for the upcoming Sony Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact. Blass says that the regular Xperia XZ2 will have a 5.7-inch display, while the Compact will have a 5-inch display.

Sony is all set to launch its next generation of XZ lineup of smartphones on 26th January at MWC 2018.

These same reports claim that you'll be able to buy both the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact from 6 March, with pricing set to start at around £720 and £530, respectively. The specs leak on the Compact version reveal that the two phones will have almost the same specs, with the only difference being the display size. Blass says that both Xperia XZ2 models will have full HD 1080 LCD displays and the handsets will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Hopefully that's the only smartphone trend Sony won't adopt.

The Xperia XZ2 phones will sport 3D glass up front and on the back, they will each have an aluminum frame. The Qualcomm chipset is the successor to last year's Snapdragon 835 and is also expected to power the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the S9 Plus.

The US is no longer a nation of immigrants, apparently
Cissna became the agency's director in October past year , after President Trump's election. The agency's new statement also does not refer to the population it serves as "customers".


At the back, you get the same single 19MP camera with f/1.8 aperture, 4K HDR recording and super-slow motion capture as the Xperia XZ Premium, alongside a uniquely positioned fingerprint reader that will actually be functional in the USA for once. This means that it will have an f/1.8 aperture lens and will be capable of recording 4K HDR video and super slow motion in full HD resolution. Sony has also moved the fingerprint scanner to the back, right in the middle.

The XZ2 packs a 3180-mAh battery that charges via USB-C and wireless technology (presumably Qi), while the XZ2 Compact uses a predictably smaller 2870mAh battery, and doesn't offer wireless charging. While Blass hasn't revealed an image of the XZ2 Compact, we're expecting it to arrive with a new, curved rear panel.

For audio, both phones get "S Force" speakers on the front, but only the XZ2 will benefit from an additional haptic feedback system.

A few days ago, Sony posted a mysterious MWC teaser on its Xperia Twitter account.
