Sony is hoping by introducing the Xperia Z7 Premium in 2017 you will get yet another taste of what a truly amazing Phablet was intended to be. Over the years, we have seen many changes in Sony’s Mobile division which has seen both and negative changes. There was a time when rumors persisted that Sony was intending to get out of the mobile business all-together, but with what’s coming in the Xperia Z series in 2017 we know that’s far from the truth.
According to the latest 2017 Sony rumors, we’re hearing a Z7 Premium will launch alongside the Z7 and smaller Z7 Compact. The Sony Xperia Z7 Premium is expected to compete with the likes of the Galaxy Note 7, Galaxy S7 Edge Plus, and Apple’s iPhone 7s Plus, but will come in hundreds less than competitors.
Sony’s demise over the years has seen a positive deflection due in part to the innovational changes we’ve seen in the Xperia Z series. The Z5 introduced the first 4K display and with many others following suit with the launch of the best smartphones of 2017 we now see they’re getting back on track.
The Xperia Z7 Premium is expected to boast an amazing 4K display coming in at 5.8 inches. We’ve heard some scuttle that Sony could be going with a massive 6” display, but as of now we believe this to be highly unlikely.
This will be significantly bigger than the Z7, and more than an inch larger than the Z7 Compact which is what consumers have been asking for. With the Phablet craze introducing larger, faster, and tablet sized smartphones, we’re hoping we’ve yet to see the best of what Sony has to offer.
Rumors on the Sony Xperia Z7 Premium specs suggest we’ll see a Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 SoC which will soon become the processor of choice. Qualcomm’s 830 processor is expected to be ready for mass production and integration into many 2017 flagship smartphones starting with the Galaxy S8 and LG G6 launching earlier in the year.
More of what’s expected include a 3900 mAh battery, expandable memory, wireless charging, 28MP rear, and 10MP front-facing camera. We’re hoping the battery will be removable allowing users to take full advantage of swapping out the battery whenever the need arises which seems to always happen at the most opportune times.
We’ll keep you updated on all there is to know on Sony’s 2017 flagship, the Xperia Z7 Premium.
