Sony Xperia Z6 Series May Feature 5 Models


If it feels like the the Sony Xperia Z5 just released, that’s because it actually just released. That isn’t stopping the Sony or the rumor mill from going to work on the next iteration. Yesterday Phone Arena dug up some information via AnTuTu’s Weibo page that appears to show some Xperia Z6 specs and a total of 5 different models. The Z5 series comes in three variants-the Z5 Compact, Z5, and Z5 Premium. The main flagship device has featured a 5.2″ screen for the past few years, and these leaks show that Sony plans to keep with this size for the Z6. In addition to another compact device of 4.6″, there will be a smaller Z6 Mini with a 4″ screen size. On the opposite end of the spectrum there appears to be a Z6+ and Z6 Ultra with screen sizes of 5.8″ and 6.4″ respectively. The Z6 Ultra is presumably the successor to the original Z Ultra that phablet fans have been eagerly anticipating.

All of the phones, excepting the Z6 Mini, will run the Snapdragon 820 and Adreno 530 GPU. The Mini will feature a octa-core Snapdragon 610 and Snapdragon 510 GPU. There is also some indication that the Z6 series will feature a force-touch feature similar to that on the iPhone 6S and 6S+ from Apple. Sony has a press event at 5 PM on January 5,2016 for CES, but it seems very early to already replace the Z5 series, even given Sony’s accelerated launch schedule. Keep it locked to HOA News as we continue bringing you updates on these devices!

    They shouldn’t call it the Z5 mini. I always liked Sony’s approach not to combine the mini name with the flagship name for a mid-end phone. Just five it a mid-end name. The M-series look similar as well, so just make it into an M-series.

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
