Leak teases Sony Xperia with barely-there bezels


A couple weeks back, we got a look at a new breed of Androids from Sharp, boasting some of the narrowest side bezels we’ve seen in recent memory. As we wring our hands over concerns that such phone are going to introduce new problems, picking up stray inputs from our hands just gripping the phone, manufacturers push forward, towards that day when a phone’s display will utterly consume its face. We’re still a way’s off from that, but one new leak may offer the next step in that direction, apparently revealing a Sony Xperia model with an impressively narrow bezel.

At least, that may be what we’re seeing here, but it’s so very blurry that it’s difficult to make out anything of substance. Perhaps worse, the out-of-focus nature of these shots may conceal something that would otherwise have us questioning their validity. But for the moment, this is what we have to work with, and on the surface at least, that bezel looks fantastically narrow. It’s a little more difficult to appreciate in the darker image below, but we can still make it out. We can’t really estimate precisely how narrow we’re talking about without a sense of the phone’s other dimensions, but even without an exact read, it’s thin enough to catch our attention.

Based on earlier leaks, this is almost certainly not the Xperia Z2, so maybe this is hardware Sony’s putting together for a launch later in the year – perhaps at IFA.
