IFA media day is rapidly approaching and we expect Sony to be one of the major players. With Samsung’s big phone releases out of the way Sony has a chance to really make a splash by announcing their next Xperia phone. We’ve already seen some leaks surface for the Xperia Z5, and it looks pretty similar to the other phones in the Xperia Z lineup. Today’s leak comes in the form of a Chinese dummy unit of the Z5 tucked inside a thin plastic case. The overall design appears to line up well with what we’ve seen previously, including a fingerprint scanner and slightly redesigned power button on the side.
The internal specs are expected to pretty similar to the Z4, we should see 3GB of RAM, Snapdragon 810, and the same excellent 20.2 MP camera that Sony is well-known for. One thing Sony has not done is given us a major redesign here. The Sony media event at IFA takes place on September 2nd so we’ll have to see what they have up their sleeve. With the Xperia line it isn’t even a safe bet that the phone will arrive stateside, so hopefully we find out more about that as well. Stay locked to HOA the next few weeks for developing IFA coverage!
