    What's new

    The report claims that the new smartphone will sport a bezel-less display with a 4K resolution. The report further suggests that the phone's design will be based on company's 'Ambient Flow' design which was recently mentioned by the company.

    The alleged smartphone is tipped to boast a 5.5-inch display with 4320 x 2180 pixel resolution with an 18:9 aspect ratio. It is expected to be powered by Qualcomm's zippy Snapdragon 845 processor, just like the recently launched XZ2 series. The processor will be backed by 4GB RAM and 64GB of on board storage.

    Previous 4K ready offering

    This isn't the first time Sony will be incorporating a 4k display with HDR support. The company earlier launched the Xperia XZ Premium which packs a 5.5-inch display.

    Sony is yet to drop any hints regarding the device but if the smartphone is under development, we can expect it to launch sometime in the second half of the year.
