Sony has been in the news of late because of the rumored set of Xperia devices lined up for release. According to the latest report, an unknown device dubbed the “Sony Xperia Z5+” is making waves online.
Mobi Picker got tipped by LeaksFly, stating that Sony is working on a high-end smartphone called the Xperia Z5+. The handset will reportedly feature a huge 5.7-inch display, fitted with a Quad HD screen resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels. This display configuration translates to a solid pixel density of 515 ppi, notes Phone Arena. The device will be powered by the coming Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. Hence the smartphone will not be released this year, as the chipset S820 will only be made available later in 2015. The Xperia Z5+ release date is set for March 2016.
The Sony Xperia Z5+ will be backed by 4 GB of RAM, guaranteeing impressive performance. Foro memory, the handset will come equipped with 32 GB of built-in storage. The device will flaunt the same 20.7 MP rear-facing camera seen in the Xperia Z3 series of phones. There will also be a generous 8 MP front-facing snapper for selfies and video chats. A fingerprint scanner also will be part of the home button of the Xperia Z5+. Like other high-end Sony devices, Phone Arena says, this one will be IP-certified for dust- and water-proofing.
Moving on to other Xperia series handsets, Phone Arena says, the rumor mill started with the high-end Sony Xperia S60 and Xperia S70, featuring 32 GB of internal storage capacity. These handsets will make a debut in August. Additionally, a User Agent Profile showed the existence of the Sony Xperia Z5 and the mini version Xperia Z5 Compact. Both the Z5 smartphones are believed to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset. Moreover, the Xperia Z5 will flaunt 1080p screen resolution, whereas the Xperia Z5 Compact will be packed with 720p resolution. The Xperia Z5 release is set for the last quarter of this year, alongside the compact version. Sony has not confirmed the Xperia Z5 series of handsets’ specifications thus far.
