Sony Xperia XZ1 press images leak ahead of August 31 IFA launch

The Sony Xperia XZ1 has leaked in all its glory in what appear to be press images of the device. The pictures were shared by Roland Quandt of WinFuture on twitter.

Images show the Xperia XZ1 with thick top and bottom bezels. Sony does not seem eager to jump on the bezel-less bandwagon and the design of the upcoming device looks pretty similar to older Xperia smartphones. The smartphone is shown in two colour options, black and pink, in the leaked images. One can also spot a camera bump at the back of the device. There are two speaker grilles at the front of the device, while the power button, volume rocker and a camera button rest on the right side.

The Sony Xperia XZ1 will be unveiled on August 31 at an event in Berlin. The launch comes a day ahead of the official start of IFA. At the event, Sony is likely to showcase the Xperia XZ1, Xperia Xz1 Compact and Xperia X1 smartphones as successors to last year’s Xperia XZ and Xperia X Compact. The Sony Xperia XZ1 is likely to become the company’s second flagship device after Xperia XZ Premium to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor. The handset is tipped to sport a 5.2-inch Full HD display, 4GB RAM and 3000mAh battery.

Weeks back, a Chinese website called, had posted four images of an unknown Sony smartphone. While the images weren’t very clear, one of the devices was shown bearing the model number G8341, which is tipped to be the model number of the Xperia XZ1. The smartphone was also recently listed on Geekbench confirming the SD 835 chipset and 4GB RAM.
