A photo recently surfaced on Twitter claiming to be Sony's next Xperia Z series flagship smartphone.

The snapshot, which was unveiled by Twitter user @vizileaks, features the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact models, xperiablog.net wrote. An iPhone 5S is placed between the mobile devices to compare its size with the alleged phones from Sony.

Based on the image, the largest Z series handset showcases a fingerprint scanner and the camera button on the right side, with the volume control being moved near the bottom of the same side, xperiablog.net noted. The OmniBalance is present as well, a minimalistic design execution that only displays the essentials, with balance and symmetry in every direction.

The leaked photo also shows an elongated power button, which has been rumored before, Android Authority reported. GSM Arena pointed out that the Xperia Z5 line will not be equipped with the USB Type-C port.


According to MobiPicker, the Xperia Z5 flagship will come in with a 5.5-inch display with 1080p screen resolution. The device is expected to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 chipset just like the Xperia Z3+.

Aside from these, the Xperia Z5 flagship is said to have 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory storage, a 20.7-megapixel primary camera, and an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter for taking selfies, MobiPicker added.

Phone Arena reported from xperiablog.net that the smartphone will have the Android Lollipop 5.1.1 serving as its operating system, with an OmniBalance design language in use as well, just like what was indicated in ViziLeaks' photo.

Back in April, there were reports claiming that Sony will ditch the angular design of its smartphones, CNET reported. Fans should wait if this rumor will come to fruition when the Xperia Z5 finally rolls out.

Price and Release Date

There's a possibility that the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact will be launched at Sony's IFA 2015 press conference scheduled on Sept. 2, Android Authority speculated. MobiPicker reported from popular tipster Leaksfly that Sony's new Xperia line will go against the upcoming iPhone 6S from Apple, and Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5.

In addition, there are hearsays claiming that the Xperia Z5 will launch alongside the new James Bond film installment, "Spectre," as a device made for the iconic agent, Tech Radar wrote. PC Advisor speculated that the Xperia Z5 will be priced around $780.

It should be noted that these are all rumors for now and Sony is yet to issue an official announcement for their latest products.
