Sony Xperia XR: The Beginning of New Era
It has been long known that the flagship of Sony mobile phone is the Sony Xperia Z series. From the first model to the latest Sony Xperia Z5, this series represent the best side of Sony mobile phone technology. Z series have been known for some breakthroughs and innovations although it is quite struggling in the market. However, it is very surprising when Sony announced Z series had reached its culmination and created Xperia X series as the next chapter of its flagship model. And it is started with Sony Xperia XR.


Xperia Evolution
There is huge curiosity about Sony Xperia XR. Everyone is wondering how drastic Sony will evolve its Xperia series with the so called new chapter. This new model becomes the new basic of the new X series and that what makes it so interesting. There have been some rumors about this new phone model including some leaked images showing handled dubbed as the new Xperia XR. Design wise, it seems like Sony won’t take too drastic approach. It still carries the legacy of from Xperia Z5 with Omnibalance design and full metal material.

Higher Specs
When it comes to specs, the rumors are even greater. Sony Xperia XR will have similar specs and features as the leaked smartphone model dubbed as Xperia Z6 several months ago. The centerpiece of this phone will be an improved processor. Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 is the main candidate and it is going to be supported with 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. It is more than capable to run Android Nougat 7.0. Yes, Xperia XR will be among the first smartphone models running the latest Android version.

From the display side, Full HD 5.1-inch display compatible with VR technology. A little smaller than 5.2-inch display on most other Sony device but it has better pixel density at 432ppi. The downside will be on the camera as it is predicted to have only 13MP main camera (Z5 has 23MP main camera) but it offers better front camera at 8MP and also 4K video capabilities. Bigger capacity battery at 3,000mAh will make this phone even more powerful.

It is really interesting to see Sony change its flagship phone series, something that no other brand dare to do. There’s no clear information about when this smartphone will be announced and how much the price will be. However, Sony is going to announce new lines of mobile phone this September and we can expect Sony Xperia XR will be officially introduced there.
