Sony Xperia G mid-range device leaked ahead of potential MWC launch

The Sony Xperia G mid-range smartphone has been leaked online ahead of a potential MWC launch.

According to a tweet from prolific tech tipster @vizileaks, the Sony Xperia G will be the mid-range device to launch at MWC alongside the high-end Sony Xperia Z2.

The Xperia G has been spotted before in leaked benchmarks with specs very similar to the Motorola Moto G.

From the leaked photograph, the Sony Xperia G looks to offer a screen size of around 4.6- or 4.8-inches. It is seen with what looks to be the 5-inch Sony Xperia Z1, which makes us believe it has such a screen size.

However, Sony may well have reduced the bezel size of the Xperia G and kitted it out with a 5-inch display.

Of course, the phone on top could be the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact too, meaning that the display may be as small as 4.3-inches or lower, but we sincerely doubt it.

The previously leaked benchmarks suggest the Xperia G will have a 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and run Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.

It is also tipped to feature a 720p HD resolution display, rather than full 1080p HD to keep it in-line with its mid-range price tag.

That’s all we know about the Sony Xperia G for now, but it may well be part of Sony’s MWC 2014 line-up.

MWC starts on February 23 in Barcelona. TrustedReviews will be on hand to bring you all the latest news as it happens.
