Mobile phone operator 3 Ireland says that the Xperia XZ2 will be “coming soon” in a tweet to a customer. The news is hardly surprising, but it confirms at least one new flagship device will be announced at MWC, and makes it extremely likely that the ‘XZ2’ will be the new name for Sony’s 2018 premium range.
This news follows on from a report by MyBroadband.co.za who spoke to Christian Haghofer, Sony Mobile’s South Africa manager. Haghofer appeared to confirm that the upcoming flagship will come with dual cameras and is set to launch at Mobile World Congress (MWC).
“We are also very excited to announce our Xperia XZ Premium successor at Mobile World Congress this year. Dual cameras are tipped to become the norm for many flagship phones,” said Haghofer. Other key highlights from the company expected this year include artificial intelligence, design, and display technology. This heightens the expectations of a re-designed flagship with perhaps an OLED display.
