Sony’s upcoming flagship, the Xperia Z5, has been leaked days ahead of it’s expected announcement at IFA 2015. A video hands on of the device briefly appeared online, only to be taken down within a matter of hours. However, in the short look we have managed to glean a few details about the phone.
It looks like Sony is doing the popular thing at the moment and sticking to its traditional design aesthetics. The video demonstrates the larger 5.5-inch Xperia Z5 Premium, which is unmistakably a Sony smartphone. Like the Xperia Z3+, it appears that the Z5 will eschew dust covers and flaps covering the ports. Despite this, rumour still say that it will retain water-resisting capabilities.
A couple of other details are confirmed, one being the 23MP camera on the rear; complete with 5x digital zoom. The Z5 Premium will also apparently feature a 4K display, along with a finger print sensor. This would make the Xperia Z5 Sony’s first smartphone with the feature, although the choice to put it on the side with the with the power button is a little odd.
The internals of the Sony Xperia Z5 are still unconfirmed, although rumours put it with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, 3GB RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. The smaller (and less premium) Xperia Z5 will apparently stick to a 1080p display instead of the 4K on the larger Z5 Premium. Sony is expected to officially reveal these flagship phones later this week at IFA 2015, along with global availability and pricing.
