Apart from Samsung, Sony has confirmed its presence at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona. After launching its latest mid-range Xperia XA2/XA2 Ultra smartphones at CES 2018, it’s time for Sony to reveal its new high-end models.
After the Xiaomi Mi MIX, almost every manufacturer has a “bezel-less” or an 18:9 display flagship smartphone in their lineup. Now it appears that Sony is releasing a “bezel-less” smartphone of their own which boasts a screen to body ratio of over 90%. That’s Mi MIX levels of all-screen and minimal bezels.
One of Sony Mobile‘s biggest criticisms is of their apparent lack of desire to redesign their handsets — recycling the same old look over and over again. Well, it’s that and the fact that, up until recently, Sony’s handsets have been awful value for money.
For 2018, it looks like Sony could be fixing at least one of those problems.
