Sony’s Near Bezel-Free Xperia C6 Shows Up In Rumored Leaks

April 11, 2016 - Written By Justin Diaz

Sony may have passed the torch of the Xperia Z line onto the all new Xperia X series of devices, but they have more devices to offer that may be worth paying attention to. Back at the beginning of the year leaked images started to surface of an upcoming Sony device called the Xperia C6, showing off what was obviously a rough prototype of the phone in an unfinished state. A few weeks later, leaked images of some renders of the Sony Xperia C6 showed up displaying what was believed to be the final design of the phone before the launch later on in the year.

Although there is still no information on when Sony may plan to launch the Xperia C6, which regions it will hit, or what it will cost, new leaked images have emerged of what are suggested to be the Xperia C6 in the wild in what looks like a complete design. Much like the renders which showed up at the end of January, the Xperia C6 as depicted in these images shows off a nearly bezel-free design with a screen that goes almost edge to edge, not too unlike that of the design on the Xperia Xa which has a similar edge to edge look to it.

Aside from the minimal bezels, the Xperia C6 as shown off in these image leaks appears to also have a front-facing LED flash to accompany the front-facing camera which has a slightly larger lens size than you’ll see on most front cameras. It’s also been rumored to come with a 6-inch display although there has been no mentioned details about the actual screen resolution. Other than the screen size and from what’ shown in the images, the alleged Xperia C6 is thought to have a MediaTek chip inside and come with support for two SIM cards, something which is quite common of devices which are launched internationally. The phone should also have NFC built-in based on the NFC icon that displays on the back of the phone, and it looks like Sony has stuck with the micro-USB port for charging and data transfer with this device. There’s no mention on whether or not this will come running on Android Marshmallow or Lollipop, it would appear that the phone will work on a number of different LTE bands though, including LTE bands 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 28, 38, 39, 40, and 41.
