Sony's New Xperia Phones (Mostly) Ditch the Bezels

Due out in stores "sometime in March", the XZ2 Compact will allegedly pack a 2870mAh battery, which the XZ2 should bump up to 3180mAh capacity. And while those specs make the phones feel new, their thick top and bottom bezels look very 2016. They're due to go in the new phones, as Sony is finally expected to adopt 18:9 full-screen displays. That's no "Infinity Display" Sony has in the pipeline, but without a doubt, the 5.7-inch XZ2 will offer the Xperia family's largest screen-to-body ratio yet. 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.

Colours are apparently black, silver, green, and pink with Gorilla Glass 5 to protect the 4K screens.

In the wake of an increasing rollout of nearly bezel-less, 18:9 displays by the smartphone manufacturers, Sony had stuck to the outdated bezel model till date.

Sony has already held some teasers of what it will launch during the Mobile World Congress event, which will begin in just a few days. The XZ2 Compact, on the other hand, will have a non-scratch polycarbonate finish. Sony may be one of the companies making big announcements next week, as we hear today that it has not one, but two Xperia reveals lined up for the show. Both phones will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chip and will run on Android 8.0.0 Oreo. According to Evan Blass, the famous leaker, the company has two phones named Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact in it's pipeline. The fingerprint sensor has also moved to the back, similar to what we saw in the L2/XA2/XA2 Ultra leaks. The XZ2 will feature a 3,180 mAh battery that can be charged via USB-C or wirelessly, while the XZ2 Compact, with its 2,870 mAh battery, can only be charged with a wire.

The Xperia XZ2 and the XZ2 Compact will also feature "S Force" stereo speakers on the front, but only the XZ2 (and not the XZ2 Compact) will supplement the audio with "a haptic feedback system" that syncs with the phone's vibration motors.

The phones are expected to be unveiled on Sunday at MWC 2018.
