The upcoming IFA show in Berlin is expected to be the place where Sony will unveil the new Sony Xperia XR, which is rumored to be the name for the Sony Xperia F8331.
Several leaks about the device, which has been codenamed as the Sony Xperia F8331, have come out in recent weeks. It promises to be one of the best phones from Sony if those rumors turn out to be true. It is especially the need of the hour for Sony, which has faced criticism following recent launches of the X series. These phones have been seen as overpriced for what they offer and it remains to be seen if the Sony Xperia F8331 will be anything different.
The device is expected to come with a snapdragon 820 processor, this sorting out any issues regarding power that may crop up. Given that many of the recent high end smartphones have started going for more than 4 GB of RAM, it may not be surprising to see the Sony Xperia F8331 adopt a similar stance. Several leaked pictures showed that the upcoming phone may be one of the best designed in Sony’s stable of late. It may follow the same design cues as rest of the X series, but subtle changes have made the device look extremely cool.
The phone is expected to come with 4K video recording features in both the front and rear camera. This would be one of the first of its kind in a Sony phone. Another first could be the appearance of the USB Type-C port. Other aspects of the phone are yet to be revealed even through leaks. Launching the device at the IFA conference in Berlin will provide Sony with the headache of having to deal with less headlines since the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the Apple iPhone 7 are also widely expected to launch in the next few weeks.
However, if Sony provide a capable device, they can be confident about its success. The Japanese company recently revealed plans to concentrate on markets that they have a strong foothold. This is likely to mean that the Sony Xperia F8331 will be focused on European and Japanese markets primarily before coming to other Asian and the North American markets. The device will come with a 5.1-inch screen, which may continue with the same 1080p resolution as in other Sony smartphones.
