Now that the Nokia 8, ASUS ZenFone 4, and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launch events are over, we can begin looking into what IFA Berlin 2017 is going to showcase next week. Our first preview comes from a set of official-looking renders for Sony’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the Xperia XZ1.

More interesting are the antenna lines above the LED flash and on the edges, as well as the NFC tag in that small space on the back. This likely means the XZ1 will have an all-metal design.

Specifications didn’t come with these leaked renders, so we can’t say for certain how powerful this handset will be. What we do know is the XZ1 will likely launch alongside a smaller Xperia XZ1 Compact.
We hope Sony has more tricks up its sleeve come unveiling time, because if this truly is how its next high-end device will look like, we might be in for yet another round of the same, old Xperia experience.
