The XZ 1 is currently being expected to be the successor of the Sony Xperia XZ. The XZ1 has been spotted on a few benchmarking websites with the model number G8341.

The images also show that the devices will be running Google’s newest Android O operating system. Which could make these phones one of the first devices to have Android O installed out-of-the-box. The leaked images are of two devices as the camera placement is different in the images. However, both of these could be the prototype devices of the same smartphone. Interestingly, one of the devices comes with a rear mounted fingerprint sensor, which is a first for the company. Previously, due to some undisclosed reason, Sony had to disable the fingerprint sensor placed in the power button in the United States.

We do suggest that you take this news with a pinch of salt as consumer technology companies can make any changes to its devices even at the last moments. Also during the boot animation, you don’t see the Powered by Android logo, which could have been removed from the test units but we highly doubt that.
