Sony is planning to launch a new phone at the Mobile World Congress. Its Xperia Mobile Twitter account recently tweeted a video showing a ray of cascades falling onto a hand.

Global tech gurus have been trying to decrypt what the video might mean, with many of them pointing towards the sequel to the Xperia XZ Premium, the XZ Premium 2. The XZ Premium debuted during MWC ’17, meaning the sequel being released in this year’s edition is quite likely. The XZ Premium 2 is likely to have a 4K 5.7-inch display. It will most probably be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset along with 6 GB of RAM.

The Xperia XZ2 is another viable option. Its screen is rumored to have fewer bezels than that of previous Xperia models. Current rumors point towards the set being powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset along with 4 GB of RAM. Additionally, the back camera setup is likely to boast a dual-camera setup having a resolution of 12 MP. Moreover, the display is rumored to be of 5.5-inch boasting 4K or QHD resolution.

Coming back to the tweet, it is expected that the new smartphone will feature a curved design. The ray of cascades falls onto the hand in a curved manner, thereby pointing toward some sort of curvature. Consumers have been waiting for a curved design from Sony for quite some while now after getting a taste of the concept in the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Well, nothing is confirmed for now. We’ll update you as soon as Sony officially unveils the next big thing on the 26th of February, 2018!
