It can be considered as an achievement by the Japanese company because they have not changed its design and also were forced to disable few features in some markets. Sony also unveiled three other devices at MWC 2017 - Xperia XZs, Xperia XA1 and Xperia XA1 Ultra.

The winning device is the second 4K smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and has an updated 19 MP camera in it. Though it is packed with such a powerful processor, it will not be available in the market until late spring.
