Sony was initially regarding to announce its first Penta Camera flagship smartphone. At the Mobile World Congress along with other devices but that event was terminated. A flagship device is expected to be called Xperia 5 Plus Aka Xperia 1.1. And a new mid-range device which could be called Xperia 9.
According to the rumors the flagship device will have dual front stereo speakers. And the same camera setup as the Galaxy S20+. I.e. a 12 MP F/1.8 main camera. With a 64 MP F/2.0 telephoto camera, a 12 MP F/2.2 ultra wide and ToF 3D depth sensing unit. Also the rumor also assert that 2 and even 3 out of the 4 lenses could be made by Samsung but not by Sony.
Talking about the video aspect of the device, Xperia 1.1 could capture whooping 8K HDR video – mind you that’s not the “plain” 8K video the Galaxy S20 phones can capture, but rather HDR 8K video. HDR video capture isn’t all that common on phones, even in 4K resoulution, which is what makes this rumor difficult to believe.

A new leak has surfaced which might be the new midrange smartphone. Xperia 9 consisting of triple rear camera. And a front camera with a tiny bottom bezel, huge top bezel. And no bezels sideways. The device might be powered by Snapdragon 765 SoC.
No further detail of the device is out there yet, but we will post updates about the device as soon as we hear some.
