Mobile World Congress 2017 is approaching, which means we are going to start seeing leaks and invites before the biggest smartphone event commences. Sony usually takes part in MWC and this year will not be different as the company has sent out an invite confirming their presence.
According to the press invite, Sony will be having a special event on 27 February where it is expected to announce new smartphones. There is a possibility that Sony will unveil a successor to its mid-ranger Xperia XA.
A bunch of photos of the alleged device were leaked which have a similar design language as the original. While there is no info around the specifications, the leaked images of the device come from a promotional video where was can see a USB Type-C port as an upgrade, a 3.5mm audio jack and slits on top and bottom of the display which means that we could see the return of stereo speakers.
There are also rumours that Sony will announce the successor to the Xperia X which could be called the X2. While last year the flagship didn't impress us all that much, Sony released a secondary flagship called the Xperia XZ during the second half of the year which was a much better option.
We are expecting more info to pop-up before Sony makes things official, so stay tuned.
