Sony came up with devices like Xperia Z3+, Xperia Z4, and Xperia Z4V in 2015, and it has been in the news for a while now with its next flagship of devices Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact. The latest leaked image of Z5 compact has officially confirmed the existence of the smartphone. While we are not sure if it is 100% original, but the design seems to be in line with earlier leaked images.
The promo shot features the back of the device that is rather plain with lens and LED placement. 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.
It is also clear that there won’t be any incorporation of USB-C and looks like Xperia Z5 Compact will still come with micro-USB. The rumored specifications of Z5 Compact are, it could feature a 4.7-inch HD (1280 x 720) display offering a pixel density of 312ppi. It comes powered by Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor and Adreno 430 GPU coupled with 3GB RAM.
The rear camera will be of 20.7 MP latest Sony’s ExmorRS sensor and a 8MP front camera. Apart from the above-mentioned specifications, there is no information about the pricing or any other details of the upcoming flagship from Sony.
Since none of this information is officially confirmed, we need to wait until Sony announces Z5 and Z5 Compact smartphone at IFA 2015 that will happen next month in Berlin.
While there is nothing much to talk about Xperia Z5 series, Sony recently released its Sony Xperia M5 this month that features a 5.5-inch HD 1080p display. It comes powered by Mediatek MT6795 processor with 3GB RAM and a higher 21.5 MP rear camera. The company hasn’t revealed the pricing of the Xperia M5.
