Sony rumored to release first 5G smartphone at MWC 2020

22 January 2020 0

It has been a week since Sony announced that it will attend the MWC 2020 event in Barcelona. It did not reveal what it will unveil at the event but we now have a leak about the same. MyDrivers, a Chinese publication, has reported that Sony will launch its first-ever 5G smartphone at MWC 2020.

The report mentions that the first Sony 5G smartphone will be an Android flagship offering. It is rumored to sport a display slightly bigger than 6.6-inches and with a 21:9 aspect ratio. The display panel will be 4K OLED with HDR support. It means Sony will continue with its focus on providing immersive media consumption to users. It did the same with the Xperia 1 flagship last year as well.

Sony flagships are known for using Qualcomm processors and for this upcoming phone, it will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. It is a chipset that comes with an integrated Snapdragon X55 5G modem. This will allow the phone to be compatible with 5G networks wherever available.

The smartphone is rumored to feature a quad rear camera setup with either 64-megapixel or 48-megapixel primary camera. The other three sensors are reported to include a 12-megapixel telephoto sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor, and a ToF sensor. The camera setup will have 8K video recording support which will make one of the few smartphones with the capability. Lastly, it is rumored to cost around CNY 6,000 (about $867) in China.
