The phone is rumoured to be backed by a 4GB or 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM along with Sony IMX400 image sensor, which makes it a perfect successor of the Xperia XZ.
Sony BlancBright is touted to be an upper mid-range smartphone which is rumoured to come with a 5.5-inch QHD display with a screen resolution of 2560×1440 pixels.
