Have you heard of the “P” series from Sony? Well, that wasn’t a big series and you are forgiven if you are hearing that for the first time. But Sony’s planning to bring it back, with a new device, i.e. the Xperia P2. According to leak by Chinese site cnBeta, which almost reveals everything about the smartphone, the P2 is powered by Qualcomm’s top-end Snapdragon 810 SoC, which is clocked at 1.9GHz, and this is a quad-core processor, supported by 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage, probably having a MicroSD card expansion.
Going by the same leaks, the Xperia P2 sports a 5.2-inch Full HD TRILUMINOS display (1920 x 1080 pixels), and on the photography side, there is a 12.1-megapixel auto-focus primary camera with LED flash and OIS, and it can record videos in 4K resolution, while there is a 5.1-megapixel selfie camera capable of recording 1080p videos.
Interestingly, the Xperia P2 is said to be packing in, a massive 4,240mah battery unit, and thus the device won’t be one of the slimmest out there, with thickness varying between 8.9mm to 10.9mm. Going by the leaked images, the device comes with very narrow bezels and has borrowed its design from, Xperia P, the predecessor that was launched back in 2012, with some modest specs, including a qHD display and a chipset from NovaThor.
While we might be seeing this only as a successor to the Xperia P, Sony could be looking to keep up with its numbers after seeing a lot of criticism from users for frequent launches of high-end devices, including flagships, and the P series might serve as an alternative to bring some specs that are not possible in the flagship smartphones from the company.
Too early to take a call, and there are no official teasers or a word from Sony about this, thus we’ll wait for more details.
