Sony To Unveil G3112 and G3221 Smartphones At Mobile World Congress
According to Xperiablog, Sony is expected to unveil two new Xperia smartphones at the Mobile World Congress this February.
The two smartphones will allegedly feature a MediaTek Helio P20 MT6757 processor that combines quad-core 2.3GHz and quad-core 1.6GHz. The two phones are currently named G3112 and G3221, though those are likely just codenames.
The two phones have been mentioned in previous leaks where it was rumored they would make use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processors.
That being said, those rumors have been proven wrong in a few ways. Most notably because the phones did not launch at CES. The previous rumors also mentioned a G3121, but the current leaks make no mention of such a device.
The G3112 is rumored to have a 720p display which suggests this will be a lower-end model. Previous leaks have said that the two smartphones would have different screen sizes. Currently, it is sounding as if the G3112 will be the smaller one at 5.2 inches.
The G3221 is likely to be a mid-ranged smartphone and will feature a 1080p display and a screen size of 5.5 inches. Both phones will probably be running the Android 7.0 Nougat OS. No price has been revealed, but, given the larger screen and increased resolution, it’s likely that the G3221 will be the more expensive of the two smartphones.
There were rumors that Sony planned to unveil its new line of Android smartphones at CES, but the show came and went without any such announcements. It is likely that the phones will be unveiled at MCW though there is no word on an official launch date. It’s also important to keep in mind that these are simply rumors and, as noted above, previous information regarding these phones has been proven false.
Hopefully, we’ll know more when the MWC begins next month.
