Despite the Xperia Z3+ (a.k.a Z4) only being released globally at the end of June, details are already emerging about its successor, the Z5. According to Technodify, Sony is going to announce this device along with Z5 Compact and the Z5 Ultra in Japan in September.
This latest flagship marks a much more significant upgrade than what we saw with the Z3+. There are no details about the screen size of the Z5 but it’ll have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB of RAM. In addition a fingerprint scanner, likely to be on the home button.
It’ll feature the same OmniBalance design we’ve seen since the original Z was released in 2013. Fortunately though, this latest version will feature a huge 4,500 mAh battery (in comparison, the current Z3+’s battery is 2930 mAh).
It’ll also offer a 21MP back camera with a Sony Exmor RS IMX230 CMOS sensor, with 4K video recording. We’ll have to wait and see for the details about the front camera because there’s no information on that either.
As we get closer to the supposed announcement in September, we should hear more about the Z5 and also the Z5 Compact and Z5 Ultra. But as with all rumours, take them with a pinch of salt until something official is unveiled.
