Sony appears to be ready to bring one more device with model number F8331 from its X-series. It has now emerged that the flagship handset will be officially named the Xperia XR and is expected to be unveiled on Sept. 1, a day before the IFA 2016 takes off in Berlin.
The Japanese electronics giant unveiled the Xperia X, Xperia XA and Xperia X Performance at the Mobile World Congress 2016 in February before launching them a few months later. It is reportedly working on yet another handset from the X family.
According to a report by PhoneRadar, Sony's new device with model number F8331 will be officially named as Xperia XR. However, it is not confirmed yet.
Sony's new smartphone is expected to sport a 5.1-inch screen, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, mounts cameras (both front and back) that can record a 4K video, and support USB Type-C port, according a report (pulled down) by Croatian website Njuskalo (via GSMArena).
The Xperia F8331 or Xperia XR is believed to be the successor of the Xperia X Performance.
