Sony Xperia P2 leaks

Images and specs have apparently leaked for the Sony Xperia P2, a new smartphone in an all-but-forgotten line.

If you’re drawing a blank on the original Sony Xperia P, that’s because it’s three years old. However, if rumours from China are to be believed, we’re about to see a belated follow-up.

The above image (the P2 is the one on the left) was recently posted on a Chinese website, along with some claimed specs for this so-called Sony Xperia P2.

As you can see from the image, it retains the transparent band along the bottom bezel that marked out the original Xperia P – and indeed all Xperia devices of that era.

It’s another chunky smartphone, with a boxy design and a gradually arcing rear that makes the phone measure between 8.9mm and 10.9mm thick. The reason for such thickness could be its claimed 4240mAh battery, which is pretty hefty.

Elsewhere, we’re looking at some pretty high-end specifications. These include a Snapdragon 810 CPU, 32GB of storage, and a 5.2-inch 1080p Triluminos IPS display.

Yes, it’s essentially a Sony Xperia Z4 (which it’s pictured alongside) with a chunkier body and battery. Except for the camera, which is a lesser 12.1-megapixel unit with a 1/2.3-inch Exmor RS sensor and an f/2.0 aperture.

All in all, it marks a curious return to a long-past design. Combined with those specs, we could be looking at a region-specific flagship – the Xperia Z4 itself is said to be Japan-only, after all.
