We are just halfway through the year, and certain projects are still yet to be unveiled.

The next big thing in the smartphone industry is the foldable smartphones, which will be as revolutionary as the dawn of smartphones. Samsung tops the list with its years of development, followed by other manufacturers like Huawei, OPPO, and LG. Samsung even ordered mass quantities of components for its foldable smartphone Galaxy X, which is supposed to launch early next year. The next is Huawei, who not only claims to be working on one but mentions to have reached the prototype stage. LGMicrosoftOPPO, and even Apple filed patents for foldable smartphones and may be secretly working on one.

Sony’s Foldable Smartphone

Now, the latest member to join this list is Sony, as reported by Techconfigurations. However, the design differs from the standard patented foldable phone approach. Last month, the Japanese manufacturer hinted in an interview that they were changing their design choices and spoke about sacrificing the front camera and stereo speaker for a bezel-less display. The report claims the device will be named the “Sony Xperia Flex” and certainly adopt the new design policy the company was talking about.

About Sony Xperia Flex

Sony Xperia Flex is the first Sony foldable concept smartphone the company is rumored to be working on. It comes with foldable technology that allows bending the middle section of the display. It sports a bezel-less design and has a metallic design. However, the back seems to be made out of glass. There is a small notch on the top, which houses the front camera. Even with the notch, there is a high chance it will have over 90% screen-to-body ratio. The rear sports an AI-powered dual camera setup.

The smartphone has sharp edges and small cuts on both sides of the device that help it bend along the screen easily. The foldable position bears an uncanny resemblance to Sony’s own PlayStation 4. The top and bottom contain a small 3mm display that displays the time and other notifications without unfolding the phone.

Sony Xperia Flex Specifications & Features (Rumoured)

Not much information about the specs of the Sony Xperia Flex is available, and it seems that it is currently a concept design in development. However, other sources mention that Sony Xperia Flex may feature a 6.2-inch OLED 4K display with an aspect ratio 19:9 because of the top-notch.

It will likely be powered by top-of-the-line hardware like Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 coupled with 6GB or 8GB RAM with 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of internal storage. The AI-powered dual cameras in the rear will have a 19MP + 12MP configuration, while the front will have a 12MP sensor. The top-notch will also house a 3D facial scanner, as no fingerprint sensor is in sight. Another possibility is that it may come with an on-screen fingerprint display currently available from other suppliers. There will be a bigger battery with support for wireless charging. However, all things said, the abovementioned specs are just rumors, and the company hasn’t even confirmed the device’s existence.

Sony Xperia Flex Price & Launch Date

Assuming the phone is in an early stage, it will at least take months to get it off to the working stage. The chances of launching it before the Samsung Galaxy X are very slim. So we can expect “Sony Xperia Flex” to be unveiled in mid or late 2019. As for the price can be expected to cost much more than current flagships since it will be the first time foldable smartphones are released onto the market. Rest assured, this technology will be a major game-changer in the smartphone industry and make 2019 a year of foldable smartphones.
