Latest image leaks of the upcoming Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact reveal that both phones will come with fingerprint sensors for better security.

TechTimes repprted that images of the devices show a fingerprint scanner that will be placed on the side of the handset "embedded in the power buttons."

Expected to be released at the IFA 2015 in Berlin on Sept. 9, the Z5 and Z5 Compact will also come with volume rockers which were seen in the leaks placed below the fingerprint sensors.

Photos of the devices also show that the two will really look the same except in size.

TechnoBuffalo said that the phones will also have microUSB connectors.

"That means the company won't be adopting reversible USB-C technology, at least not for now. On the bright side, that means we probably won't have to sacrifice QuickCharge capability," the same report said.

It added that fans are still hoping that wireless charging will also be possible.

Significant design changes are not expected from the upcoming devices but there will be notable upgrades like "a 4500mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon processor and a 20.7-megapixel camera" for the Z5.

Phone Arena said that Xperia Z5's camera will have the Sony Exmor RS IMX230 CMOS sensor for 4K video recording and which also has HDR capabilities.

It added that the OmniBalance design will be utilized for the phone.

The Z5 Compact will reportedly sport almost the same specifications but inside a smaller and thicker body.

The Z5 will reportedly have a price tag of $1,000 according tp Xperia5Sony while the Compact is believed to be cheaper at around $700.

Sony has expressed its plan to build a manufacturing plant in India because of strong sales, according to Tech FirstPost.

 "Of course, thanks to Modi's strong initiatives, somehow we have to cope with the country's direction and strategy. We are in talks as to how we can support country's direction," Sony India managing dirdctor Kenichiro Hibu said.

"At this point of time, we do not have any specific comment. We are seriously studying as how can we reply to PM's requirements."

Hibi did not reveal the targeted date of this plan but noted that they want to make it happen in two years' time.

 "Definitely yes, we would have to make something in such a time span. We do not have any specific comment on it. But yes it is and we are thinking it very seriously," he added.

The company has reported a 20 percent growth in its sales for the year 2014-2015.
