We recently caught a glimpse of the first official renders of what is believed to be the Xperia XA3. The images showed a device that sports dual rear cameras, and will adopt a super-skinny 21:9 display which Sony will dub "CinemaWide". The renders showed a return to the boxy design that we're fans of, and with a very small bezel on the sides and bottom, but a much bigger bezel along the top.
Sony Mobile will announce the first Xperia handsets of 2019 at the MWC tradeshow in Barcelona later this month. One of these models will be the Xperia XA3 according to leaker Roland Quandt. He has shown off some pictures that show a smartphone with a very tall and skinny display, large bezels on the top of the phone, but very little elsewhere. It's also great to see the side fingerprint power sensor back.
New CAD renders have emerged of what is expected to be a 2019 Xperia Compact device, courtesy of CompareRaja and @OnLeaks. Little is known about the device, but it is believed to sport a 5-inch display with overall dimensions of 139.9 x 66.5 x 9.3 mm. For reference, the Xperia XZ2 Compact has dimensions of 135 x 65 x 12.1mm.
If you're looking forward to playing more racing games on your Nintendo Switch, it appears that someone at Walmart might have gotten ahead of themselves and posted a listing for Team Sonic Racing, an upcoming racing game from SEGA featuring none other than Sonic. The game isn't exactly a secret as we have been hearing about it for a while, but we reckon SEGA would have preferred to announce it themselves.
That being said, now that the cat (or hedgehog) has been let out of the bag, what can we expect? According to the game's description on the listing, "Team Sonic Racing combines the best elements of arcade and fast-paced competitive style racing as you face-off with friends in intense multiplayer racing. Race together and work together as a team by sharing power-ups and speed boosts. Take control of your racing style – Choose from 3 distinct character types and unlock game-changing vehicle customization options to suit your racing style. Speed up. Gear Up Team Racing at Sonic Speed!"
This week, we finally saw a teaser for the long-awaited MKV Toyota Supra. The car is set to make its debut next month at the Geneva Motor Show. We don't know whether this will be the production version or just a concept. Thanks to the people at the Supra MKV forum, we now have leaked images from Japan's Best Car Magazine that appear to show the new car. As expected, the car draws heavily from the Toyota FT-1 concept from more than 4 years ago.
Of course, it's difficult to say whether these are official, and Toyota is unlikely to comment. Comparing the rear of the car to the rear of the shadowy teaser shows the two vehicles appear to be the same. Best Car Magazine shows two vehicles, a road-going version and a GTE-spec race car. There are a few specs listed, too, including a 335 horsepower rating. Again, we don't know what's under the hood, but expect six-cylinder power of some sort.
Prior to October’s 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, images of the bold new Mitsubishi Delica Concept have leaked online.
Indian Autos Blog reports that the next-generation Delica is based on the same platform as the Mitsubishi Outlander and will come standard with the company’s Super All Wheel Control system.
Not long after our spies snapped the 2019 Suzuki Jimny in the midst of testing, images of the redesigned SUV have emerged following a company presentation detailing its product roadmap.
As we long suspected (and hoped for), the new Jimny hasn't totally sacrificed its iconic design and still remains identifiable. What that means is that the SUV maintains its small proportions and its front end continues to be dominated by a slim, horizontal grille and a set of simple headlights, now round rather than the square shape of the original.
