Et tu, Sony? The FCC posted documents on an upcoming handset and the Charging mode schematic shows a dongle that splits into a USB port and a headphone jack (Page 8 of source link).The next page goes into a bit more detail – the adapter measures 20cm and offers a USB-C port and a headphone jack. This lets you continue listening to music while you charge, addressing a common issue with phones without a headphone jack.
Sony has noise-canceling headphones that work on a mostly standard jack (the headphones have an extra ring, but regular headphones work just fine), so it never felt like the old-school jack was holding back the Xperia phones.
Anyway, the device in question measures 152.8 x 72.4mm, it could easily house a 5.7” 18:9 screen. There’s a good chance that we’ll be seeing this device at the MWC, whether its the new XZ flagship or not.
It’s starting to seem like Paul will win this particular debate whether we like it or not.
