Sony to announce new flagship spec smartphones at IFA 2017

Sony has so far built up a solid smartphone portfolio since the arrival of the Xperia Z in 2013 . The new phones , which still continue on the same DNA of waterproof candybar designs has so far evolved into 8 generations(Z ,Z1,Z2,Z3,Z4,Z5,XZ,XZ,XZpremuim and XZs) and is apparently set to be succeeded by the next generation of Sony Smartphones which will be unveiled at IFA 2017 .

The rumored phones ,Named - Xperia ZX1 (series) are said to feature 4.6" display and a 5.2" display and a larger edge to edge 6" display will be launched along with some of the latest Snapdragon 835 and 660 series processors . The 4.6" version , which is said to be the successor the Xperia compact lineup (Xperia ZX1 compact?) is said to have a Snapdragon 835 Soc and 4GB of ram , the camera information is not revealed yet , but we guess they will include the 19MP unit from the Xperia XZs which captures 960fps slow motion , if not they will include the 20MP unit from the previous generation XZ . Video recording will be 4K and it will have a 2800 mAh battery with an IP rating giving it water and dust resistance .

The rest of the rumored ZX1 series are said to feature a 5.2" 1080p model , which might be a successor of the ZXs , This is said to include a 3000mAh battery and 4GB ram with a Snapdragon 835 processor and the same camera said above . The other is said to be 6" behemoth with a Snapdragon 660 series processor .

All three versions are said to pack Android O out of the box (or Nougat) and cost around EUR 650 for the compact and EUR 760 for the XZ , but take these rumors with a grain of salt as European prices are generally higher than the set retail U.S dollar rate .

Sony is said to announce the rumored phones on the 31st of  August at IFA 2017
