Udpate, August 31, 2015, 17:20 : Few days before IFA 2015 there is a new leak of Sony Xperia Z5 Premium and this time it is in the form of a video. The device was displayed in full, and you can see the whole design and also the camera specifications. As far as the design is concerned there is not much changed, and it looks similar to earlier devices.
Now the company is set to launch its latest flagship in three variants- Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z5 Premium and the devices will be unveiled at IFA 2015 on September 2 in Berlin. As per the earlier leaked image, Xperia Z5 will feature a 5.2-inch Full HD (1920×1080) display while the Xperia Z5 Compact comes with a 4.6-inch HD (1280×720) display and Z5 Premium comes with a 5.5-inch 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) display respectively. Once unveiled Z5 Premium will be the first device to use a 4K UHD screen offering 801 PPI as pixel density.
As earlier rumored, all the three devices will come with a fingerprint scanner that will come placed on the power button and will sport a 23MP rear camera with f/1.8 and super-fast autofocus.
Earlier, August 4, 2015, 11:05 :This year somehow Sony missed out the action from the fight for the best flagship device. Though the company launched the Xperia Z4, which is the successor for last year’s flagship Xperia Z3, it received a lot of backlashes as there are no serious upgrades from its predecessor. All this made Sony not to launch the Xperia Z4 outside of its home country; it is released as Xperia Z3+ in the international markets.
With all this happenings, Sony hinted about the launch of another flagship device before the end of this year. Recently released “Made for Bond” posters also make us feel the launch of a new flagship is near since the movie will be released in the month of November.
Today we got the fresh leak of not only Xperia Z5 but also its Compact variant Xperia Z5 Compact. In the leaked images, both the upcoming devices are compared with an iPhone 6. Unfortunately, there are no more details about the device except the design aspects.
From the image, we can see the round shaped power button from the previous versions will be replaced by an elaborate oval shaped button. On the right side, we can also see the volume rocker and camera shutter buttons placed along with the power button.
Sony is also debuting the fingerprint sensor in its flagship lineup, but there is no clear indication about the placement of it. From the displayed screen of the Z5 Compact, we guess the fingerprint sensor will be placed on the power button which will be on right side.
We will update with more details of both Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact once we have any information from the confirmed source.
