Sony will be holding a press conference at the upcoming MWC 2016 trade show, just like it normally does. Unfortunately, the next Xperia flagship won’t make an appearance. However, Sony may be prepping some other handsets for a release. Yesterday, a render leaked of what appears to be a yet to be release Sony-branded smartphone.
Sources say that the leaked render is of the Sony Xperia C6. Most of the design elements are similar to that of other Sony handsets. The most notable design element here is the handset’s razor thin bezels along the sides. Based off of rumors, the Xperia C6 could house a 5-inch display with a Full HD resolution. The handset may also include an octa-core processor from MediaTek, the Helio P10. Judging from these specs, the handset will be a mid-ranger, hopefully with an affordable price tag.
Based off the leaked render, the Xperia C6 will come in three colors, a dark grey, a silver, and a goldish-colored model. Perhaps we’ll find out more on the handset at MWC 2016, which is set to begin on February 22 in Barcelona.
