Possible specs of Sony's first bezel-less phone leaked

While most of the smartphone brands have launched their version of bezel-less smartphones, Sony is yet to utilize the technology. The company has been using what it calls 'OmniBalance' design with thick bezels ever since the launch of Xperia Z five years ago. 

Having said that, Sony has already confirmed that it plans to completely redesign its next smartphone hinting at a bezel-less form factor. And now details about this device has hit the interweb.

A screenshot showing the specs of the phone carrying model number H8541 surfaced in China. The Sony H8541 appears to be the company's 2018 flagship offering and successor of Xperia XZ Premium because it sports 5.7-inch display bearing 4K HDR resolution and is protected by Gorilla Glass 5.

To recap, the Xperia XZ Premium 5.5-inch display and its dimensions were 156 x 77 x 7.99. However, even with a bigger 5.7 display, the Sony H8541 has a footprint of 149 x 74 x 7.5mm, making it slimmer and smaller than Xperia XZ Premium. This could only mean that the H8541 will have slim bezels, and the 5.7-inch screen will get 18:9 aspect ratio.

As for the other specification, according to the source, Sony's next flagship will ship with Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage and 3420mAh battery. It will run Android Oreo out-of-the box and also includes Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB Type-C and IP68 water and dust resistance. Sadly, the camera details are not known yet.

Do note that, there's no way to confirm the authenticity of the screenshot, so take this report with a pinch of salt. If the phone does exist, it is most likely to break cover at MWC 2018.
