The Japanese tech giant Sony has unveiled a new device at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) known as ID PY7-21831A. There is not much to take notice of in these FCC documents, but it looks a little different this time as Sony hints to drop the 3.5mm headphone jack from its new Sony Xperia device. This will be the first ever Sony smartphone to come without an audio jack.

The new Sony Xperia phone currently named as ID PY7-21831A has revealed at FCC a notable diagram showing the phone with a combined USB/headphone jack cable connected to the USB-C port. The FCC ID label appears to be now located on top of the handset where the 3.5mm headphone jack is normally located whereas on the previous handset the sim tray was located on the side of the handset. This suggests that there will be no separate audio jack.

The phone highlights to have an overall dimension of 152.79 x 72.42 mm with a 5.7-inch screen display, which will also sport a bezel-less display and 18:9 aspect ratio displays. Along with these, the smartphone is also provisioned with dual rear camera setup which includes an 18mp sensor. The front is expected to have a 13mp click.

It is also rumored that Sony will be the first smartphone to launch with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor in its next launch of the Xperia XZ Pro at the upcoming MWC 2018. The Sony Xperia XZ is also attributed to a much-highlighted feature of 6GB RAM. Xperia XZ Pro will be the first phone to have such RAM capacity. It will also have Android 8.0 operating system powered by 3420mAh battery. It is also said to be dust and water resistant.
