Leaked renders - This is how Sony Xperia XZ1 will look like
A week before Sony's scheduled 31st Aug press event at IFA 2017 in Berlin. What appears to be official press images of the new Xperia XZ1 have been leaked. For now we see only the Black and Pink version, though we expect at least another 2 colours (maybe Blue, SIlver or even Green?) Looking at the quality of images and gathering previous leaked information, it looks like the real deal.
The Xperia XZ1 design base is similar to Xperia XZ Premium, with Sony retaining the Omni design. There is still no sign of dual camera, so you find one camera on the back. Also no sign of trending infinity screen, the display still keeps wide bezels below and above the screen. At least the side are stretched out to the edges.
Alongside the flash is the NFC logo, and there is a slit above the flash, we can guess it is because the back panel will be made from metal. The slit will to allow NFC to work. And since its metal, looks like they have decided not to join wireless charging team.
The XZ1 is expected to be annouced along with another compact variant - Xperia XZ1 Compact. We are hoping to see more releases and think there is a good chance we can.
