So here we are with the first post that came with the new site design and it’s one of the most popular topics you prefer to read here: a Sony concept phone. Seeing how Sony decided to can the Xperia Z, Xperia M and Xperia C series, they may as well bend the C Ultra models into the X series. And that’s exactly what the Xperia XL concept below is.

It’s sort of like a recycled Xperia C6 or C5 Ultra, that didn’t make the cut. It does borrow some design elements from the Xperia X family, like those side curves and it maybe even gives up glass in favour of metal or plastic at the back. Designer Ben Ling sees this as a 6.44 inch 4K device, with a 2.5D glass panel and a 23 megapixel camera with OIS (that’s nice for a change).

6 GB of RAM and a 4500 mAh battery make this a powerhouse meant to fight the Galaxy Note 6 rather than an overpowered midranger like the Vernee Apollo. Dust and waterproofing are obviously here and while we do like the design, we’re still suspicious about Sony’s new strategy…

Thanks Ben Ling!
