The screen may be in 19.5:9 aspect ratio - then the display would measure 69.18x149.9mm, that way the bezels (sort of) make sense for 167.4x73.3mm body.
Like, there is NO way that a 6.5-inch 18:9 display can fit in such a body, since the display itself would measure 73.8x147.6mm - 0.5mm wider than the phone body lol
That is a sweet design. Rectangular screen, low bezel on all sides and no ugly notch. Very Note9 like. In fact, it is the best kind of design.
3.5 mm headphone jack is intact too. Yes! If Sony makes a flagship like this, they are BACK IN BUSINESS!
KamAbdi, 04 Oct 2018It's been reported that Sony phones will be 21:9 aspect ratio They don't need to be. They got a forhead and a chin, so making them 21:9 will be super tall
Paw, 04 Oct 2018All Sony needs to do is release a phone like this around 140mm tall and ill be sold..Release a 6.5" phone 140mm tall, seems legit

Anonymous, 03 Oct 2018Lol your measurements aren't even possible with 18:9. It must be at least 160x80mm, and that... more160mm height & 80mm width is a fair size, not too tall or wide, just correct!!
Only 6.5 inch? Not enough. 7 inch is good enough even over 7 inch is much better. Honor already hit over 7 inch you know.
Look subtle & minimalistic. Love what Sony have done to their new design language.
Now equipped it with SD710 please, to differentiate between normal XA3.
167.4 x 73.3 x 8.3 mm... 167.4mm tall... I think Sony is doing something 21:9 phone. Definitely not 18:9.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 04 Oct 2018I guess the separate power button and fingerprint sensor is to avoid conflicts with the patent?No hate towards US people, but why should everyone else have to sacrifice the comfort of the fp sensor being on the side, to have an ugly one on the back. Now it's even worse, it's on the side, but it's not a power button anymore. I don't understand, this is not what I meant by 'Wanted a fp sensor on the side. I now wish these renders are faker than Nicki Minaj's ass. I just want a camera shutter button and a fingerprint sensor on the side that doubles as a power button. Bc look at this, you'll be confusing the power button and the fp sensor for a long time. This is a poor design choice, and wish it's fake.
marko97sx, 04 Oct 2018I find it weird that they removed the camera shutter button, and brought back the Sony logo on... moreI guess the separate power button and fingerprint sensor is to avoid conflicts with the patent?
marko97sx, 04 Oct 2018I find it weird that they removed the camera shutter button, and brought back the Sony logo on... moreI dislike some of the new changes like the fp sensor location and camera button. But the new design in the front looks really good if these leaks turn out to be true, the back- not so much with that camera unit.
