Just recently, Sony confirmed that it will be sticking with the 3.5mm audio jack, at least for its 2017 smartphones.
In a new development, the Japanese tech giant will reportedly come in with a couple of smartphones that are powered by a MediaTek Helio P20 processor. This information came from Sony’s user-agent profile (UAProf) via the Xperia Blog and as it is, the MT6757 SoC will be clocked at a speed of 2.3GHz. In addition, this processor will work with a Mali-T880 GPU, the same that is found in the Exynos 8890 that powers some variants of Samsung Galaxy S7. Being an octa-core processor, the other four cores of the Helio P20 will be clocked at a speed of 1.6GHz.
This is not everything the UAProf gives out. In addition to the processor model that Sony will use in its two Xperia phones, the leaks also give out details about the model numbers of the phones and their respective screen resolutions. Apparently, there will be a Sony G3112 that will have a screen with 1280 x 720 pixels of resolution and a Sony G3221 that has a 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution.

Last year, Sony unveiled the Xperia X series at the MWC event, something that could be warming up for a repeat at the upcoming MWC 2017 event. According to the Xperia Blog, two Sony devices with model numbers G3112 and G3121 have already been leaked out, but there was no mention of specs. The latest leak matches with one of the previously leaked model numbers, but the second is different. So, is Sony planning a third device, probably using a different processor?
We’ll soon find out this as the MWC 2017 event is just weeks away, starting on February 27.
