Tann Hauser, 23 Feb 2017Hah, true. At least Xperias have onscreen buttons. That helps when having such small bezels. ... morethis time sammy also makes on screen buttons..atleast leak renders suggest this!
This is obviously a fake. 2017 Xperia range won't have volume buttons on the lower side. Wallpaper will definitely be different and I've never seen Sony use such a s**ty bacground :D
Where is the guy who love lenovo?
Maybe now he changes his mind and says that he loves thin bezel too. lol.

"These bezels are too small! I can't even hold the phone properly without touch... moreHah, true.
At least Xperias have onscreen buttons. That helps when having such small bezels.
Wonder how Sammy users will get along with capacitive ones on that small S8 bezel. Or did they give up and made it onscreen also?

PLAYER SLAYER, 23 Feb 2017Still gonna get a G6. With the way Sony's cameras have been performing lately, I'd rather have... moreWell ya know, its most probably JDIs new 2k LTPS lcd 5 incher, with highest dpi and 60hz refresh rate, along with fhd content to 2k upscale and pixeleye 2 with advanced wet responsivity, along with lower power consumption.
Dont know how much those biggerscreen devices will be energy efficient, will have to have enormeous batteries, but considering less bezel, there wont be as much space left for bigger mah batteries.
Anyways expect not so good batterylife on these new bezel less devices, except if theyll be 1 cm thick at least
Tann Hauser, 23 Feb 2017Yup, imx 400 will do amazing things.finally your beloved brand makes good-looking phone, tanny ;-)
i hope this is the official design, NOT just a "fan made design".
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2017Still only another boring uncomfortable rectangle, it must be very easy to be a designer at Sony!I don't think they need to introduce a new design for their devices. The rectangular shape is what makes a Xperia a Xperia, you can recognize a Sony phone even without knowing what model it is. It doesn't look dated, the colors, the symetry and ergonomics are on point. Improving the current design language is enough, at least for me, and that's what Sony designers may think too.
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2017Still only another boring uncomfortable rectangle, it must be very easy to be a designer at Sony!It's a phone.. Not a deldo,, It doesn't need to have rounded corners so as to prevent hurting up there.
Looks good to me. Now go ahead and do the same treatment to the X compact:
- minimum bezels while not significantly increasing screen size
- therefore: overall device slightly smaller than current x compact.
- waterproof again (how could they ever remove that feature?)
I would definitely buy one of those (in 2019, when I can afford the used ones on Ebay ;) ).
