Sony is apparently planning to announce the Xperia Z5 smartphone, probably releasing the unit in September to give tough competition to the upcoming Apple iPhone 6s, the jumbo Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the next-generation phablet Galaxy Note 5. Leaksfly via MobiPicker reported the Z5 will apparently come with a 5.5-inch display, one-upping its predecessor Sony Xperia Z3+ and Sony Xperia Z4 with 5.2-inch screens. The device reportedly will flaunt 1,080-by-1,920-pixel screen resolution. This display combination translates to a pixel density of 401 ppi.
The Sony Xperia Z5 will reportedly be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. A User Agent Profile leak last week apparently showed the same chipset on board, Phone Arena said. The S810 chipset will work in combination with an octa-core CPU and the graphics will be handled by an Adreno 430 GPU. The entire configuration will be backed by a 3GB of RAM.
When it comes to memory specification, the Xperia Z5 apparently will come equipped with 32GB of internal storage. However, there is no information available on microSD card slot availability. The handset will flaunt the standard 20.7 megapixel rear-facing camera unit and an 8 MP snapper at the front. The smartphone also will feature a fingerprint scanner, like Samsung and Apple handsets. Sony, however, has not yet confirmed the Xperia Z5 specifications or features.
A recent report said two new high-end Android smartphones, the Sony Xperia S60 and Sony Xperia S70, are under development. These handsets are reported to cost approximately $919 and are expected to be unveiled at IFA 2015 in September.
