Sony will be present at MWC 2018 that will kick off on February 26 where the company is expected to unveil a few new Xperia smartphones. The pricier of the two, Xperia XZ2 is anticipated to sport Qualcomm's latest and most powerful Snapdragon 845 SoC. This seems to be corroborated by an earlier Xperia Blog report, purportedly showing the Compact design. But right now, we have some credible new info on the XZ2 and XZ2 Compact only, both of which are expected to adhere to a curvaceous design language with trendy 18:9 panels.
As the report also states, these two devices will be priced lower than the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+. Not only do we know pretty much everything about the Samsung Galaxy S9, full specs for Sony's Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 have now surfaced online. The display will get the Gorilla Glass 5 protection as well.
The Xperia XZ2, which is rumoured to be announced at MWC 2018, will hit the shelves on March 6, according to Swedroid. For one, the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia ZX2 Compact don't have 3.5mm headphone jacks, and secondly, the fingerprint sensors have been moved to the back of both phones (like the Sony Xperia XA2 and the Xperia L2). The phones will also use the vibration engine (haptic feedback?) to power a new music feature for the phone, which sounds a bit exciting. This device may come equipped with the same Snapdragon 845 chipset that will work in tandem with 4GB RAM and 64GB of native storage. It's been dubbed the Xperia XZ2 Compact and is said to feature near-identical internals, with the most notable difference being that it has a smaller 4.6-inch (18:9) display. It may debut with a price tag of 599 euros (~$738).
