On Monday morning at MWC 2018 Sony will unveil its new Android flagship phone. You can watch the live stream right here (we’ll embed it as soon as it’s available), and we will have journalists at the event blogging live – read on for the news you won’t get from the Sony live stream.
When is the Sony MWC 2018 live stream?
You’ll need to tune in at 8.30am CET (7.30am here in the UK) to watch Sony unveil its new hardware.
What will Sony announce at MWC 2018?
Sony will announce the successor to the Sony Xperia XZ1, which going by tradition should be called the Sony Xperia XZ1 Premium. However, an increasing number of rumours point to the Sony Xperia XZ2 or Sony Xperia XZ Pro.
Should Sony announce the XZ2 now rather than waiting for September’s IFA show, it’s possible we’ll also see a Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact alongside it.
This is certainly what’s been suggested by VentureBeat’s Evan Blass, a respected tipster who says the XZ2 and XZ2 Compact will launch Monday with 5.7- and 5in 18:9 displays (complete with Gorilla Glass 5) respectively, Android 8.0 Oreo, the Snapdragon 845, S Force surround speakers, 3180mAh/2870mAh batteries (the XZ2 with support for Qi wireless charging), and 19Mp, f/1.8 cameras capable of 4K video recording.
The fingerprint scanner is now found on the rear of these phones, which will be available in black, silver, green and pink. While the XZ2 is all glass, the XZ2 Compact is expected to have a non-scratch polycarbonate finish.
