New Leaks Show Two Xperia Handsets; One Has 16 MP Front Cam


Sony at the Mobile World Congress 2016 had unleashed a new lineup in the Xperia family, much to the surprise of everyone.

The Japanese tech giant was expected to unveil its latest Z flagship handset during the hotly anticipated event, but instead set it as stage to release the Xperia X series. Now, the company could be shifting its focus to its photography-centric lineup as new leaks point to two new handsets that feature impressive selfie cameras.

According to a report from GSMArena, a listing from GFXBench details a Sony F3216 and an F331 handset. The former features a 4.6-inch Full HD touchscreen display as well as a primary 21 MP primary camera and a whopping 16 MP front-facing shooter.

Furthermore, not only does it feature some impressive camera specifications, but it’s also quite capable as well based on the hardware that it comes with. There’s a MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 chipset that comes with a 1.9 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU as well as a Mali-T860 GPU. It’s also paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which could likely be expanded via microSD card slot as well.

On the other hand, the Sony F331 features a 4.6-inch HD touchscreen display. It seems to be on the lower-end of things, too. It comes with a MediaTek MT6735 that comes with a 1.3 GHz quad-core Cortex A-53 CPU as well as a Mali-T720 GPU.

It’s also paired with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. Its camera performance relies on its 13 MP primary shooter and a 5MP front-facing shooter.

The F3216 could be placed in Sony’s Xperia C lineup, and it could be the successor to the company’s Xperia C5 that was unveiled last year. It could also be the Japanese handset manufacturer’s entry to compete with the recently unveiled Oppo F1 Plus, which also features a 16 MP selfie shooter.
