An anonymous industry source claims that Sony’s next flagship Android phone will utilize two dual-camera modules.
Pictures of the components were posted up. Sumahoinfo.com claims that the source has been reliable in the past, noting their contributions on the now-defunct site esato.com.
It appears that the rear dual-camera module pictured to the right was used in the Xperia XZ2 Premium, so the most apparent upgrade will likely come to the selfie side where Sony has historically stuck with one camera.
A previous leak of the Xperia XZ3, said to launch at IFA, suggested that the front side would only have one camera, so perhaps there’s either some veracity to this rumor if we’re talking about a “plus” variant or little to no veracity at all.
But here’s the bigger picture to look at, regardless of whether or not this rumor is true: we’re arriving at a point where three cameras on the back and two on the front are going to be normal for at least a year. Does Sony feel the need to keep up appearances?
