Sony brought its A game at MWC 2016 and although nobody expect it, they unveiled a new handset series, the Xperia X one. That name has been used before, but we’ll let that slide. While real innovation was lacking from the design department of the new X models, designer Babak Soren has some ideas to freshen up this product range.

His creation is called Sony Xperia X1 and it’s a device with seriously rounded edges, that make it look like a cylinder from the profile, in Galaxy S7 Edge style. This model keeps the dual speakers and it looks like that cylindrical iPhone patent everybody was talking about a few years ago. The back seems to be metallic and we get a dual camera, an approach made popular by LG and Huawei lately.

That’s probably the way to go and I wonder if Sony is supplying those dual cameras to those companies. It would be time for Sony to play it safe with curve and metal, since that’s a winning bet nowadays. Let’s just hope there’s no overheating and cameras are ace. The desinger claims the X1 has a magnesium body, iris scanner, 2.5D display and keys are integrated within the frame.

    Is this an Xperia smarphone? I can’t find Xperia logo on this phone. It should be called Sony X1.

    it’s really great design which should be adopted by sony this will be really a big success for if they consider using this design ,they are good at hard ware but the design language aren’t good for which they ahd lost their market share.
