Sony Xperia XZ Pro Release Date:
The latest flagship Sony Xperia XZ Pro release date in Australia is expected to be at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February 2018. Sony infrequently misses the opportunity to display case its hardware progresses at the MWC and IFA expos and has developed a steady 6-month rhythm of releasing new products twice per annum.
As for the market release date, Sony probably doesn’t have the habit to push its new phones quickly. Fans should wait at least a month in the best case scenario before they can get themselves one.
Sony Xperia XZ Pro Price
Whenever it hits the shelves, it’s sure to be expensive. Based on Sony Xperia XZ Pro rumours, it’s expected that the Xperia XZ Pro price in Australia will fetch at least AU$1100-AU$1200. If that rumour turns out to be true, it’s sure to be in prime position to win over customers in the market for a brand new high-end smartphone.
Sony Xperia Pro Design & Display
Sony has started using OmniBalance design after releasing Xperia Z and X series. The overall design of Sony flagships look old, but devices such as Sony Xperia XA and Xperia XZ Pro boast slim bezels making them stand out from the crowd. Considering Xperia XZ2, you will see a curve from the front of the display around to the back. This curve enables you to hold the phone tight into the palm of your hand.
Just like Xperia XZ2, Sony Xperia XZ Pro comes with smaller bezels and lets you use dual Nano-SIMs simultaneously. The XZ2 lacks a headphone jack, so chances are higher that Xperia XZ Pro will follow the same. Perhaps you will get a good screen-to-body ratio and the device will have an IP65/68 waterproof and dustproof.
According to the borderline-legit leaks, Xperia XA Pro will sport 5.7-inch exquisite 4K OLED display which is, of course, one of the brightest, sharpest and vivid screens available on any device round. To be honest, we are short on information, but it’s our educated guess that it will win a heart of many.
Xperia XZ Pro Features, Rumours and News
Sony Xperia XZ Pro will run on Android v8.0 Oreo and it’s tipped to be powered by 2.8 GHz Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. Andreno 630 graphics processor and a 6GB of RAM will help phone run without any lag even the memory-intensive apps without showing any signs of lag.
Furthermore, it’ll be loaded with 64GB onboard memory (expected to be expandable via microSD card up to 256GB) and perhaps will come with a large 3420mAh battery, according to a recent leak from Chinese outlet MyDrivers.
The Xperia XZ Pro is speculated to sport a dual rear camera 18MP + 12MP, a 13MP front-facing shooter. It will be loaded with features i.e. Face Detection and High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging as well.
We’re running short on information as leaked images MyDrivers supplied are highly foggy. At first glance, they could be mistaken for home-brewed renders.
