A bit late but a welcome move. A brand like Sony shouldn't be stagnant in providing better designs for their mobile devices, where their other devices got better designs to go with. This is kind of realization on part of Sony that they are going nowhere with their bezel full boxy designs.
"..And Sony may join this design trend with a new device Â“soonÂ”..."
so why bother spending cash now. I'll wait until next-gen. Bye.
Oh god, every time one of these morons at Sony opens their mouth, they spit out ridiculous geeky sounding meaningless names to delude the public.
There's nothing "balanced" on OmniBalance. The bezels are to large, the top- and bottom lip are too big. Just as usual Sony thinks to wow the crowd with cool-sounding crap.
Just as Google with it's "material design". I expect wood, marble, brushed metal or other texture when I hear "material design" not some drab flat shit.

Going beezleless may sacrifice their trademark stereo speaker setup . After that people will complain again that sony should not do that
Why do they not fix their cameras? Sony has lens division, sensor division and HBM chip design division. They make the best DSLR and high end camera sensors.
And they still lose to Samsung, Apple, Huawei, LG and I don't know how many others in their mobile phone cameras.
That is not an oversight. It's intentional.
As long as they don't fix that issue, they will keep losing a sizeable chunk of buyers, who need a good camera on their phones (and no, 2 seconds of 1000fps does not good camera make).
Sony the world best camera and display .But call sound very very low .plz improved call sound and bezel less display.everything is ok thanks sony.
well i've been a fanboy since the CMD Z5 days but sony is messing around with the supply of the XZ premium. coming to SA in drips and drabs and if i dont get mine soon then hauwei P10+ here i come
They need to have camera with sensor size (1/2.3), but with lower resolution, wider aperature, OIS and HDR+
vrvly, 27 Sep 2017What about going beyond bezelless and beyond 18:9. Got the balls?Unless you want a phone that looks like a remote.

Anonymous, 27 Sep 2017Nah, Z5 series looks greatYeah cut those bezels with hacksaw it'll surely do look good
jjhjhgjhgjgjgjhgjhgh, 27 Sep 2017you do know sony has created foldable phone/tablet way back in 2011 aka Sony Tablet S2 (tablet... moreDo you know a company which manufacturers camera sensors for some of the best camera phones in the world but is a pusy in its own product? Spell it then
I predict that some clairvoyant Sony fan will claim that Sony's implementation of the bezel-less design will be superior to present designs, even when it is still unknown. Just wait and see.

The XA design was a step in the right direction and I wish they used the same in all their 2016 and 2017 flagship and premium midrange phones. That way, the transition to mirai would have been more fluid. I feel like this announcement is a slight betrayal to their solid fan base and a disservice to their current phones on the market. I mean, why would people want to buy them now for such high prices when they'll be rendered aesthetically obsolete by the succeeding phones with the new design which are coming "soon"?
