Sony Lavender is the code name of the unreleased smartphone that does not feature any bezel on the left and right side of the device. Even though Sony has not made any official announcement on the device, more details are cropping up.

Citing @upleaks, Phone Arena reveals that the Sony Lavender will be a selfie-centric smartphone. There is a 13 MP front-facing camera sitting on the rear side of the device. On the rear too, there is a 13 MP shooter. Both cameras are enabled with LED flashes and feature Sony's IMX214 sensor.

According to Ubergizmo, the refreshed appeal of the Sony Lavender seems that Sony may be planning a design overhaul for its Xperia series of premium smarpthones. The Sony Lavender is powered by MediaTek MT6752 chipset that features a 64-bit octa-core processor clocking at 1.7 GHz along with Mali-T760 graphics. The SoC is coupled by 2 GB of RAM.

Phone Arena speculates that the device may come with a 5.5-inch or higher display that supports full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The handset is expected to come preloaded with Android Lollipop. However, the exact version of the Lollipop operating system is not known yet.

The Sony Lavender handset supports dual-SIM cards. The moniker of the handset is only its code name; analysts say that when it finally rolls out to the market, it may carry a different name. Phone Arena claims that the device may not be released globally, but only in some markets.

Digital Trends claims that the Sony Lavender seems quite similar to the unreleased Sony Xperia C4. The handset is expected to feature a 5.5-inch display. Hence, the unannounced Lavender phone is expected to sport a larger display than the Xperia C4.

Even though many tech sites say it could become the Xperia flagship device, the selfie smartphone is expected to launch as a midrange handset, claims Pocket-Lint. By adding very slim bezels on a midrange device, the Japanese brand may be raising the competition bar to the next level.
