In a shift from its current design philosophy, in 2018, Sony may release at least two Xperia smartphones that sport near-bezel-less displays.

One picture shows a curvier design than modern Sony smartphones.

The leaked images of the upcoming Xperia phones which look quite authentic clearly shows the bezel-less display and dual camera setup on the back. The leaked images reveal the front and back panel of the devices, which gives us some hint about the design of the upcoming smartphones.

At the time, the details claimed the alleged Sony Xperia phone will ship with a 5.7-inch screen with a UHD resolution and Gorilla Glass 5 on top. On the back is a very unique looking curved matte and glossy surface, with the matte regions forming semicircles at the top and bottom.

The two lenses of the higher-end handset's camera seem oddly separated. The device also seems to come feature a bezel-less full-screen display. The handset is likely to make use of the recently launched Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage space. There's less information on this one, but it apparently has a fingerprint scanner on the back rather than in the screen.

Both the smartphones could feature a 5.7-inch 4K display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. But we do know that Sony's smartphone designs need to evolve, and perhaps the direction suggested by these new renders is the right one. The images seen above and the render below show three devices in total, with one of them being depicted in blue and featuring a rectangular aesthetic similar to the company's existing OmniBalance design with one obvious exception - a almost complete lack of bezels.

As far as the second device is concerned, it will reportedly have more pronounced rounded corners but with the same stereo speaker arrangement on the front.

The phones are expected to be launched during the MWC 2018. The interesting bit doesn't stop there as the it appears that Sony will finally ditch the side-mounted fingerprint scanner in favor of a rear-mounted sensor, something that could allow U.S. users to finally enjoy using this feature.
