For some time already mobile manufacturers try to deliver us phones with zero bezels. This year the competition is particularly fierce. We have already witnessed the debut of innovatively curved screen edge giving the bezel-less impression on the Galaxy S6 Edge or the almost bezel-free design provided by the ZTE Nubia Z9. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg since there are more bezel-free smartphones waiting for their premieres. And judging by the recent leaks, Sony may soon join the trend too by releasing no-bezel Xperia smartphone codenamed Sony Lavender.
Sony has a bezel-free Xperia smartphone in the works
Smartphones with no bezels simply look and feel better which explains our fascination about such devices. They offer bigger display in a smaller form. The upcoming Sony Lavender will be no exception here since it is rumored to come speaking eye-catching bezel-less design language. Though the handset strongly resembles the Xperia C4, it is likely to receive a slightly more advanced hardware.
For starters, the Sony Lavender will house a bigger display than the 5.5-inch screen found in the C4. So far, sadly, more specified details concerning the screen parameters are unknown, however the Lavender’s panel is speculated to be a full HD one.
Going deeper into specs, the handset is highly probable to be powered by 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6752 chipset featuring a dual-core Mali-T760 GPU (the same computing capabilities combination may be found in the C4) paired with 2GB RAM and run the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop out of box. Additionally, the handset is also rumored to be available in a dual-SIM variant.
Moving on to the Lavender’s biggest selling point, the handset will offer its users a package of pretty powerful optic features. Said to be a selfie-focused smartphone, the Lavender will arrive equipped with a 13MP front-facing camera meeting the quality standards set by the HTC Desire Eye. Moreover, the front shooter will sport a LED flash and it will receive a back-up in the form of the identical 13MP rear-facing snapper. What’s more both cameras are reported to employ the famous Sony-made IMX214 sensors. The 13MP front camera delivered by the Lavender appears to be a serious upgrade in comparison to the rather moderate 5MP front snapper offered by the C4.
As for the Sony’s Lavender pricing and availability, it’s still too early to discuss such details. But we promise to keep you updated whenever any new leak concerning the smartphone surfaces online.
