Going by the images, the XZ1 seems to follow Sony’s ‘omnibalance’ design language. For those not in the know, it represents a design that aims for equilibrium from every side. Rather than rooting only for aesthetics, Sony’s designers focus on balance and usability. The phone has a minimalistic design and flaunts a metal body. Much like most of the Xperia flagships, the XZ1 is likely to be waterproof.

For those interested in numbers, the phone’s exact dimensions are: 146.8 mm (l) x 73.4 mm (w) x 7.6 mm (d). Compared to previous Xperia phones, the XZ1 is quite thin at 8.2 mm, save for the camera bump. Right next to the camera optics, you can see a peculiar black band that hosts an LED flash and a mysterious sensor that might be used for focusing. As per the previous rumours, the phone may feature a 19-megapixel sensor with 4K video recording capabilities. You can also expect the 960fps slow-motion video mode, which was introduced last year. For selfies, it might pack-in a 12-megapixel front-facing camera.

The Xperia XZ1 will sport a 5.2-inch screen. However, there’s no word on its pixel density. Sony’s flagship handset is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset. On the software front, you can expect it to ship with Android 8.0.  The Xperia XZ1 is speculated to break cover in the first week of September at IFA 2017 consumer electronics trade show.

As mobile price is one of key factors in decision making, many of you will be keen to the cost of Xperia XZ1. Though there is no concrete information available on the same, we expect the phone to be priced around USD 800 (approx. INR 51,000 & GBP 620) .

To summarize, here are the speculated specs & dimensions of Xperia XZ1:
