The days are running faster and the pre-IFA days are approaching closer. Sony has a big announcement to make during the pre-IFA days and we know that the talk is about the Sony Xperia XZ1.
Of late, we have been seeing a slew of leaks regarding the Sony Xperia XZ1 giving us a glimpse of what we can actually get to see when the smartphone is announced officially. Earlier today, we saw the rear panel of the smartphone revealing its design and now we have some live images of the device shedding light on the specifications as well. Basically, these Sony Xperia XZ1 shots look like the real life photos of the soon to be announced smartphone.
These live hands-on images of the Sony Xperia XZ1 have been leaked by Slashleaks from Sony Xperia Ailesi. The images show the positioning of the antenna lines and the NFC logo. Apart from these, the other design elements seem to be placed in order. Similar to the previously leaked images, this one also shows the signature OmniBalance design language of the Sony Xperia XZ1. The front of the smartphone appears to be identical to those of the Xperia XZ, Xperia Xzs and Xperia XZ Premium.
As you can see from the images, the entire display seems to be concealed by a text-rich sticker. It is not clear whether this is a dummy unit or a real working model of the upcoming Sony smartphone. However, the good thing is that the sticker on the Sony smartphone reveals a large amount of information about the specifications of the device. Interestingly, these specifications seem to be in line with the ones that the previous leaks have revealed.
From the images, it can be seen that the Sony Xperia XZ1 will arrive with a Snapdragon 835 SoC paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage space. The display is said to be a 5.2-inch panel (could feature FHD 1080p resolution) and support for HDR. The device is believed to have a 13MP selfie camera and a 19MP MotionEye camera with 960fps recording capability. The other aspects tipped by the images are IP68 or IP65 rating for dust and water resistance, HDR capable display and front-facing stereo speakers.
It is known that the Sony Xperia XZ1 will be unveiled on August 31 at the pre-IFA 2017 Sony event. We can expect the company to launch three smartphones at the IFA 2017 showfloor - a smaller variant dubbed Xperia XZ1 Compact and a mid-range model dubbed Xperia X1.
