Sony Xperia Flagship to Pack a Large 4400mAh Battery

It’s now almost certain that Japanese tech giant – Sony – will be launching a new Xperia flagship at this year’s MWC2020 kicking off on February 24th.

Upcoming Sony Xperia Flagship rumored to Pack a Large 4400mAh Battery

A couple days back, we learned that the upcoming Sony Xperia series phone will be featuring a very high resolution 4K panel of the OLED type. Now, while that resolution will bring a very crisp viewing experience, it also has some negative sides; such as higher battery drain compared to Full HD+ resolution.

To suffice that, new reports suggest that the handset might be packing a larger than usual battery for a Sony device; we’re indeed talking about a 4400mAh juice pack. In 2020 it isn’t really that impressive, but it is when compared to older Sony flagships such as the Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZ2 Premium and Xperia 1; all featuring high-res displays and a maximum 3540mAh capacity battery.

As far as the other specs are concerned, the Sony Xperia should include the latest and most powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 CPU; along with a Snapdragon X55 dual mode 5G modem that supports NSA and SA networks. The presence of 5G is probably also one more reason why Sony had to include a battery over the 4000mAh barrier; as the technology has proven to be quite energy hungry.

Finally, we still do not have an official name for Sony’s upcoming flagship. It could either be called Xperia 1.1, Xperia 1 2020 or something entirely different. In any case, we’re going to learn more about it very soon as MWC 2020 is around the corner. Stay tuned in as we’ll cover the event on site!

    I for one am very excited about the new Sony Experia. I have used a Sony Experia 5 for past 4 months and love it. Hoping new one has better Ram and internal storage.

    It’s amazing, we are living fascinating times when in comes to mobile phone technology. This phone has everything it needs to be on top the flahship pack. It’s good to see that Sony is bringing out a no-compromise device, and this is ones of the main drivers of progress and excellence in any field. Will it sell? Sony has had sales problems before due to poor marketing and bad timing. But there’s still a loyal fanbase out there hopefully enough to keep this brand on the market. A Samsung and Apple dominated stage is pretty boring if you ask me. I’ve bought my Xperia 1 last year for it’s unique form factor and high resolution screen which no other manufacturer would provide. The market still needs companies with the courage to push boundaries and try something different

    Just keep them durable and water proof. I’ve owned them when they were still Sony Ericsson, from the P1 to the Z5. The most innovative and user friendly phones ever made. Keep them coming

    They need to also make phones smaller, they’re too big. Making them thicker is fine, but the screen needs to be smaller and the width narrower.

    That’s called the Xperia 1 and 5 can’t get narrower than that

    LOVE MY PURPLE XPERIA 1! STILL NO PHONE CAN COMPETE WITH IT! Today I just bought my wife the Xperia 10 because she has smaller hands and doesn’t want to pay a lot for a phone. I work for Sony and I still bought mine from Best Buy on their credit card with zero interest. What Sony needs to do is provide all the accessories they provide in Europe here in the states such as the 2-n-1 USB-C dongle and Fast Car charger.
