According to new reports, Japanese tech giant – Sony – has apparently decided to continue the same strategy adopted last year in this 2020 as well. This means they’ll be launching two flagships, with the first one seeing the light of day at the MWC 2020 of Barcelona kicking off on February 24th.

The same reports suggest that the new Sony Xperia will be using an extra large 6.6-inch with Sony’s now iconic 21:9 aspect ratio. The display will also be of the OLED type, sport 4K resolution and HDR support. The high-end display will then be coupled with the latest and most powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC; along with a Snapdragon X55 5G modem. This modem supports dual-mode 5G networks, NSA and SA.
So, the next Xperia phone by Sony might very well be the world’s first Snapdragon 865 equipped phone with a 4K screen. Additionally, it would also be the world’s first 5G device with a 4K display.
