It is expected that Sony will unveil its Xperia XZ Pro smartphone at the MWC event. If true, the Xperia XZ Pro will join the  Xperia XA 2 Ultra, Xperia XA2 and Xperia L2 to add to Sony’s 2018 smartphone lineup.

A recent report by MyDrivers suggests that the Sony Xperia XZ Pro will feature a 5.7-inch 4K OLED display. The smartphone is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 platform which has been built on the second generation 10nm process and allows 25-30% improvement in speed, 30% more power-efficiency and three times faster AI processing. Needless to say, one can expect the Xperia XZ Pro to boast of some AI features. The device is also expected to run Android Oreo out of the box. 

In addition, the Xperia XZ Pro is expected to house 6GB RAM paired with 128GB storage. It may offer a dual-rear camera setup including an 18MP sensor with 1.33μm pixel size and another 12MP sensor with 1.38μm pixel size.
