Sony teases Xperia XZ Pro ahead of MWC 2018


Curves are in for Sony's next flagship smartphone.

We're only days away from the start of MWC 2018, and the hype machines are revving into full gear, both in terms of leaks around new handsets, and official teasers for those same devices.

Sony will follow its traditional path of waiting until MWC 2018 formally opens on 26 February 2018 to hold its press conference where it's expected to announce the Sony Xperia XZ Pro, the follow-up to the excellent Sony Xperia XZ Premium.

Concrete details around the new handset have been few and far between, but one persistent rumour has been that Sony will drop its "Omnibalance" design in favour of a more curved design scheme.

No XZ Pro, but an XZ2 instead. Check out Sony's latest handset below:

Sony's latest Xperia handset combines 6GB of RAM, a 5.7-inch HDR display and a snappy Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor in one slick, water-resistant package.

Sony's own Xperia twitter account appears to back this up with a deliberately cryptic teaser video that would seem to point towards that kind of curved thinking:

In other MWC news, a comprehensive leak this morning around rival Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ handsets has shown off full visuals of the handsets, as well as detailed specifications.
