A YouTube video revealed some of the features of the Xperia XA that Sony will be showcasing at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona.

Previously, many were given a glimpse of what Xperia XA looks like through leaked images. However, the web has now become rife with reports on the contents of the 2-minute video leaked on YouTube, courtesy of TechLover HD channel. The video showed what appears to be a prototype of the Xperia XA, the newest smartphone flagship of Sony.

At a glance, it can be seen that nothing much has changed with the handset format of the phone from its predecessor. Unfortunately, for those who believed that it is already a bezel-less era, Sony's newest smartphone remains to have top and bottom bezels. This also refuted previous claims that Sony will have phones with no edges.

Moreover, the prototype featured that the phone will have a model code G3121, although it has not been confirmed yet whether or not Sony will actually use the same in their official phones.

Aside from the fact that Xperia XA (2017) has 23-megapixel rear camera, an extremely high upgrade from its previous 13-megapixel camera and an Android 7.0 Nougat system, the video has not revealed other specs and features of the phone. Meanwhile, other reports say that it is also equipped with the latest security patch, and like any other devices in the Xperia X series, it has matte color. On the other hand, many also speculate that it will have a 5-inch screen and a 3 or 4 GB RAM at least.

There are also reports claiming that Sony will have five new devices to unveil at the MWC 2017. This comes unsurprisingly for many since the company also released the same number of smartphones last year.

It has also been confirmed that Sony will be having its press conference on the first day of the event.
