Sony is tight-lipped on its future products, but it is almost certain that it will be announcing something new, perhaps its flagship smartphone from Xperia X line with model number F8331, at the upcoming IFA 2016.
The Japanese technology giant has announced that it will hold a press conference on Sept. 1, a day before the IFA 2016 in Berlin kicks off. It has sparked off speculations that the company will announce the Xperia X F8331.
It may be mentioned that a Croatian website called Njuskalo (via GSMArena) has published a new Sony Xperia device with model number F8331. It claimed that the handset will sport a 5.1-inch screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, cameras (both front and back) that can record a 4K video, and support USB Type-C port.
Photos of the device with model number F8331 have been pulled down from the website and Sony is mum on the device, but it is believed to be its flagship from Xperia X family. It is the successor of the Xperia X Performance that was released last month.
Sony Xperia X Performance was unveiled along with the Xperia X and Xperia XA at the Mobile World Congress 2016 in February before releasing them into the market a few months later.
The Sony Xperia X Performance comes with a price tag of $699.99, sports a 5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1,080x1,920 pixels (441 ppi pixel density), measures 143.7x70.4x8.7 mm in dimension, and weighs 164.4 g. Under the hood, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, an Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, a 32GB internal memory (expandable up to 256GB via microSD card), and a 3GB RAM. It also features a 23MP main camera with f/2.0 aperture, 24mm, phase detection autofocus, LED flash and 1/2.3" sensor, a 13MP front-snapper with f/2.0 aperture, 22mm and 1/3" sensor size, and a 2,700mAh battery.
