Last week, we were treated to the sighting of a rather odd Sony smartphone on GFXBench that was suspected to be Sony's upcoming flagship for the second half of 2016. The specs shown there, however, were barely interesting, as they were near identical to the existing Xperia X Performance. However, there might be more to this Sony F8331 after all, with a fresh batch of leaked photos showing an intriguing change in Sony's smartphone design, which may be a welcome change after years of seeing nearly the same looks on Sony's smartphones.

In the future, a Chromebook might be the only computing device you'll ever need. Well, maybe together with a mid-range smartphone.
