Nearly all the smartphone manufacturers are following the trend.
However if they are real, then we have to say that next year's Sony smartphones should be pretty exciting. But even the Japanese conglomerate knows that it needs to keep up with the times, which is why we could see the company finally hop on the bezel-less bandwagon with two upcoming Xperia smartphones. It does seem questionable that the two phones will have the Snapdragon 845 chipset since Samsung will have early access to the chipset similar to past year.More news: Which Way Traders Signposts McDonald's Corporation (MCD), Cisco Systems, Inc.

The renders, courtesy Vortex.ge, have been based on Sony's own design drafts.
The device having less rounded corners features a two-tone design for its back panel. The two camera modules are oddly spread apart, which probably means one is just a depth sensor as this much spacing would result in much larger parallax for any other arrangement. The remaining portion of the back panel is glossy. Its front view shows that the major portion is occupied by the display that is surrounded by slim bezels. Similar to all the upcoming smartphones from other giants, the phone is also expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC. It's said that this phone may have a fingerprint scanner embedded into its display, which would make it one of the first handsets to offer such a fingerprint sensor solution. The devices will be backed by a 6GB of RAM and both of them will run Android 8.0 Oreo.
The other phone has a more uniform matte finish at the back with a fingerprint sensor in the middle and a dual-camera setup at the top left corner. There are no further information regarding specifications of the device. 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.
