Sony Xperia Z5, Z5 compact rumors: New Sony flagship may be out alongside 'Spectre'


The latest rounds on the rumor mill suggest that the long talked about Sony Xperia Z5 and possibly the Xperia Z5 Compact, will be coming to users this coming this fallbut not through a normal release, but as a tie-in with the release of the newest James Bond film, Spectre.

According to a report by Softpedia News, an alleged leaked promotional material for the upcoming Sony Xperia flagship device shows that it will be “Made For Bond”, along with the film’s official title design.

The rear camera is pegged at 20.7 megapixels, and the front-camera for selfies and video calling is said to be set at 8 megapixels.

The report also indicated that the Xperia Z5 was seen in a UA profile with the said set of hardware specifications.
