Sony has been out of the news orbit for some time now, maining owing to lukewarm receptions to the incremental changes in the Xperia Z4 and Xperia Z3+. But a new report says the tech giant is working on several high-end devices: the Sony Xperia Z5, Sony Xperia Z5 Compact and the Sony Xperia Z5 Ultra.
Sony will reportedly unveil the device in Japan this September. According to Phone Arena, “While the Xperia Z4 and Xperia Z3+ were evolutionary, the Xperia Z5 is revolutionary.”
The handset will reportedly be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, with 4 GB of RAM. The device will also house the widely used fingerprint scanner in order to compete with Apple and Samsung’s flagship devices. Apple and Samsung have been featuring the fingerprint sensor for more than two years now. But the highlight of the Z5 is its 4,500 mAh battery unit.
The Sony Xperia Z5 will reportedly sport the latest version of the 21 MP Exmor RS IMX230 based CMOS sensor. In addition, it will be capable of recording 4K videos and will support HDR. To top it off, a leaked image of the Z5 surfaced in April showcasing the metallic design of the phone and a new Type-C USB port. Readers should note that Sony has not confirmed the Xperia Z5 specifications or release date so far.
