The slightly smaller version of the Xperia 1 II, the phone shows a classic bezel.

According to Android Next, despite the smaller form factor, it is likely to feature a display with 21:9 aspect ratio, and a fingerprint scanner on the side. Keeping the phone aligned for buyers your prefer music via their corded earphones – the leaked images show the phone with a 3.5mm audio jack on the top and a tri-camera module on the back.
