Last month we brought you some exclusive information on Sony’s next flagship smartphone the Xperia Z5. Today, we have some new information to share about the Xperia Z5 and also the Z5 Ultra and Z5 Compact.
As we mentioned in our report last month, Sony will be ditching its omni-balance design language with the Xperia Z5 series of products. So what is this new design going to be like? According to our source, Sony will be making a number of major changes to the design with the Z5 and the end result will be very different from anything we have seen earlier on an Xperia device. The design is said to draw heavily from the company’s recent BRAVIA television sets and will feature a completely clean front end with a frosted glass effect. Sony’s iconic logo will be moved to the side of the device, so no branding on the front whatsoever. Also as we mentioned in our previous report, the body will be thicker than the Xperia Z3 and Z4, with more angular sides. Interestingly, our source says the sides could actually be reminiscent of Sony Ericsson devices from the past. The Xperia Z5 Ultra and Xperia Z5 Compact should also share many of the same design cues as the Z5.
Sony Xperia Z5 Ultra And Z5 Compact Display Size Confirmed
Speaking of Xperia Z5 Ultra and Z5 Compact, in our previous report we didn’t have much details to share about these devices but now we have heard that the two smartphones will feature display sizes of 6.0-inches and 4.8-inches respectively. We’re actually glad to hear this as the 6.44” size of the Xperia Z Ultra made it too big for most people. With the 6.0” size it should be a lot more appealing. As for the Z5 Compact, we believe the upgrade to 4.8” size could mean the resolution could be upped to 1080 x 1920, although this cannot be confirmed currently.
Are you excited about the new design?
