More information about Sony's Xperia smartphone next to the phone and posted on the Internet.
Sony has already suggested it will announce its next generation of smartphones in February as it sent out invitations to the MWC 2020 press conference. It has not yet revealed which devices will debut, but reports from Chinese media claim that we can expect to see a new Xperia flagship.
This new device can be called Sony Xperia 1.1 or Sony Xperia 5 plus. Either way, it looks like it will be Sony's first 5G smartphone. For example, rumored to have a Qualcomm high-end Snapdragon 865 paired with an X55 5G modem processor. This chipset duo is also thought to be in the upcoming Galaxy S20, a split 8 Pro and G9 with LG's ThinQ, among other devices.

Other rumored specs for the 5G Sony Xperia flagship include a 6.6-inch 4K HDR OLED display with a 21:9 aspect ratio, uniform bezels, front-facing stereo speakers and a 3,5mm headphone jack. It should also work in Android 10, while showing off a quad-camera setup with a Time-of-Flight sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor, a 12-megapixel telephoto sensor (supporting 3x optical zoom), and a 48-megapixel or 64 - megapixel sensor. 8K video support, fast charging, IP68 dustproof and waterproof, and NFC should also be on deck.
Details on storage and RAM have yet to be leaked.
The Sony Xperia 1.1 is likely to arrive along with two other new Sony phones, perhaps referred to as the Xperia 0 and Xperia 1 Premium. This trio of phones will replace last year's Xperia 1 smartphone, which debuted at MWC 2019, as well as the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus smartphones.
Recent reports indicate that Sony is going to price the 5G phone around 6000 yuan (or $867) in China. No word yet on UK pricing or availability.
