As some Japanese sources claim, Sony’s next-generation Xperia2 series will have four models: three flagship models (including the 5G version) and a mid-range model.
Sony’s flagship phone is usually updated every six months. Soon after the Sony Xperia1 and Sony Xperia10 series is launched, we are waiting for more news about Sony’s next-generation phones. The Sony Xperia2 and Sony Xperia20 phones that are currently identifiable have been certified by the FCC. And the two phones should be released in the second half of the year.
In addition, there are many news concerning the Sony 5K screen smartphone, the 5G smartphone, a small-screen flagship smartphone, and a folding screen smartphone. Previously, we have seen four Sony models of J8210, J8270, J9210 and J8010 passed through FCC.
According to Sumahoinfo, the upcoming Sony phones should be three Sony Xperia2 models, including the Xperia2 5G version with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus and 6.5-inch 4K screen, a 6.1-inch regular version of Xperia2, and a 5.7-inch small-screen flagship Xperia 2 Compact. But in addition to the three flagships, the company will also uncover the mid-range Sony Xperia 20.
We are waiting for these handsets to be officially announced at IFA 2019. Of course, the specific details have yet to be announced by Sony.
On one hand, it’s logical Sony will offer smartphones for every niche because it’s one of the old-timers in the smartphone industry. But on the other hand, Sony has announced it stay in this business with a single purpose in mind. What’s more interesting, it’s not to get income from smartphone sales. Sony is one of the largest smartphone components suppliers in the world. So it stays in this business to keep the finger on the pulse.
