First Xperia 3 images suggest a curved back and a flat front panel

Yordan, 12 November 2019

Sony Mobile had a poor third quarter with sales down 32%, but it isn’t stopping the division to work on new devices. The next flagship is already being prepared, and according to reports from China, it will be called Xperia 3.

The device, expected to come with Snapdragon 865, was pictured in a render with a flat front screen and a curved back panel. If Sony really launches the Xperia 3 with this design solution, it will bring back sweet memories about the Xperia Arc, launched many many moons ago.

The front of the screen will continue to have the CinemaWide panel with 21:9 resolution and no notches or pop-up mechanisms. Surely the screen will remain OLED, but we’re still waiting to see whether Sony will jump the 90Hz hype train and provide its panel with the improved refresh rate.

Other expected specifications, aside from the chipset, are 5G support for markets that actually have the next-gen networks, three capable cameras and more Video Creator features.

Yeah, he's annoying, it's not just Sony that he bashes, it's also Samsung, Apple & anything that isn't Chinese.
