A lot of them are leaked information and specs. The leaked smartphone carries the model number H8216.

Nicknamed H8216, the smartphone whose renders have recently gone viral on the internet is believed to be a successor to Xperia XZ1, the last year's flagship from Sony. Sony is one of the most prolific smartphone vendors, releasing a slew of high-end and mid-range handsets twice a year, with a smattering of budget models often flanking these major launch events.

Here are the complete details on the Sony Xperia Z5, the first Sony flagship smartphone to feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC.

The follow-up to the Sony Xperia XZ1 should be one of the devices to get the treatment, per GSM Arena, although the publication cautions that it is unclear yet if there is enough bezel to remove to warrant a 0.3 increase in the display size. The document suggests that along with Snapdragon 845 SoC, the phone will be equipped with 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. For the selfie camera, the smartphone offers a 12 MP front-facing camera with 1080p video recording capability with a front-facing flash.

The XZ1 borrowed the main camera of the XZs, but this won't be the case as far as the Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1s are concerned.

Further, the new smartphone will run on Android 8.1 Oreo right out of the box and it looks like it will be backed by a 3130 mAh battery. The device is said to measure148 x 73.4 x 7.4 mm and it will weigh around 156 g. Instead, the leaked specs sheet points towards a dual 12MP camera on the back and a 15MP shooter for selfies. Do let us know in the comment section below.

However, the specs and features uncovered in the leak make it appear that the device in question will be the next-generation Sony Xperia XZ1. The smartphone is expected to be launched either at the CES 2018 due held next month or at the MWC that will be held in February.
