Chatter regarding Sony’s next flagship, the Xperia Z5, has been picking up as of late and today we may have our first look at the upcoming flagship along with its Compact companion. Lesser known leakster ViziLeaks Tweeted the above photo that allegedly showcases the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact sandwiching an iPhone 5S.
And just to add a little more intrigue to the photo, all three devices are showing off their fingerprint reading capabilities. That’s right, the Z5 and Z5 Compact will, if this photo is legit, pack a fingerprint reader. The fingerprint reader will be built into the side home button which, as you can see, is much longer than previous Z devices. That does mean that the volume buttons will be shifted down slightly and judging from the photo, it might be a little awkward reaching for the volume rocker.
In reply to some questions, ViziLeaks also made some other details known regarding the new flagships. The Z5, like its predecessors, will feature a glass back but apparently it won’t be as slippery. The USB port will be your standard micro style, not a USB Type-C port, but thankfully there won’t be any flap covering the port. The only flap on the device will be covering the microSD and SIM slots.
What do you guys think? Do you wish they had done a redesign?
