Is Sony planning on launching a flagship at IFA?
Appearing first on GSM Arena, the five leaked images of the Xperia phone, code-named F8331, reveal a larger display than the X Performance and the site also claims that both front and back cameras will be able to capture videos in 4K resolution. Now that's an upgrade we were looking for.
Sony has been known to bring in incremental upgrades in its successive generations of phones instead of major ones and when we first heard of new reports of Sony launching a new flagship in September, we found that its leaked specifications matched those of the X Performance. It was also believed that the only major upgrades in the new phone will be focussed on design and probably a larger frame.

As far as design is concerned, unlike existing Xperia phones, the upcoming phone will feature curved side panels and flat top and bottom panels. The frame will hold a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top and a USB Type-C port at the bottom instead of a MicroUSB one which is present in all existing Xperia phones.
Yesterday, a tech website named Yibada claims that as per GFXBench, the new Xperia flagship phone will feature a Snapdragon 820 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 5.1-inch Full HD display, 32GB of internal storage and a 23-megapixel rear camera. Sony has routinely launched two or more variants of the same device with varied specifications, so it is possible that the company may launch either a phablet-sized variant or a sub-5-inch display variant of the phone with different set of specifications and price points.
