Sony nearly three months ago launched its Xperia Z5 range of smartphones and rumours for the Xperia Z6 series have already started to pour in. Sony was earlier said to launch five smartphones under its Xperia Z6 series, a figure that was later reduced to four as per a leaked T-Mobile roadmap. However, according to a new report, the Sony Xperia Z6 will include one more variant dubbed Xperia Z6 Lite.
The rumoured Sony Xperia Z6 Lite might feature a 5-inch display and will fall between the Xperia Z6 Compact and the Xperia Z6, says Mobile Dad a Chinese website (via Phonearena), adding that it will bear a metal rear panel. The smartphone is also said to house the hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 SoC, formerly known as Snapdragon 618. The device is also expected to cost $385 (roughly Rs. 25,500) and hit the shelves in May next year.
According to some preliminary leaks (via Weibo), the Sony Xperia Z6 was tipped to arrive in five variants namely – the Xperia Z6 Mini with 4-inch display, Xperia Z6 Compact with 4.6-inch display, Xperia Z6 with 5.2-inch display, Xperia Z6 Plus with 5.8-inch display, and Xperia Z6 Ultra with 6.4-inch display. However, a leaked roadmap of T-Mobile Poland (via CNBeta) from earlier this month listed only four variants omitting the Xperia Z6 Mini from the list.
It has been also tipped that two of the four devices will be given flagship treatment, and will run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. While the first flagship device is said to launch in June, the second is expected to arrive in October. The duo will sport lots of metal work and a fresh new look.
