Sony Xperia Z5 release date, rumors: Sony working on high-end Xperia Z5+?


There is no end to rumors regarding Sony’s Xperia Z5 devices, and reportedly an additional device will be added to the line.

This is because, according to Mobipicker, Leaks Fly has revealed that Sony is also working on a smartphone that will be released on the high-end of the price range.

Called the Xperia Z5+, the device will be a 5.7-inch giant. The display screen will have a resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels, which Phone Arena states translates to a 515 pixels per inch of density. As for the specifications under the hood, the Z5+ will reportedly feature the new Snapdragon 820 processor from Qualcomm.

The International Business Times added that the Z5+’s Snapdragon 820 processor will be supported by 4GB of RAM. The basic storage option for the Z5+ will also be an impressive 32GB. Doing photography with the Z5+ will reportedly be an exceptional experience as well, with a 20-megapixel rear camera coupled with an 8MP front facing snapper for self-portraits and video calls.

There will also be a fingerprint scanner in the Z5+.

Because the Snapdragon 820 is not available until later this year, the IB Times said that the Z5+ will possibly be released next year, by March 2016.

Sony is also reportedly going to debut the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact in this year’s IFA event in Berlin.

Tech Radar had reported that Sony will debut two devices, namely the Xperia S60 and S70, in Berlin in September. The website said that these are probably code names for the real devices, and added that the two devices will reportedly have 32GB of storage, making them flagship models for Sony.

Tech Radar also said that the two devices share several high-end specifications that have earlier been reported for the Xperia Z5 devices.

PC Advisor had also earlier speculated that the Xperia Z5 will be debuted during IFA 2015 and be made available for sale immediately afterwards.
