The Sony Xperia Z5 + revealed for the first time

A photo of Xperia Z5 + seems to have leaked on the web. It shows a terminal with a Omnibalance design and featuring a fingerprint reader built into the power button. Sony will launch new smartphones coming September 2 at its press conference at IFA Berlin. And if we expected to see the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact, another smartphone might accompany: Xperia Z5 +.

Known for now as the Xperia S70 + code, Xperia Z5 + could indeed be arriving after the summer, and not in the month of March 2016 as claimed by some rumors from the last week. They also suggested a 4K screen to the terminal: a perspective to forget if its formalization actually takes place at IFA, since this technology will not happen until next year. The specialized site Xperiablog published a first picture of what Xperia Z5 +. A visual akin also to release a report, which means that its announcement should take place in the near time. The device will appear in three colors (Black, Silver, Gold) and seems to have the same design Omnibalance than all its predecessors in the series Xperia Z.

We can also see the words "S70 +" on the top left of the image. The Xperia Z5 with the S70 code name, it would be quite logical that Sony Xperia attributes the name to Z5 + smartphone. Last but not least, it seems that a fingerprint reader already seen on the Xperia Z5 Compact is integrated on the left edge of the device within the power-on button. The image, which seems to be actually a current presentation slide preparation is unfortunately quite low quality. She also tells us no information about the technical specifications of the terminal. But by its seemingly imminent arrival, we should know more soon on this Xperia Z5 + in the coming days.

The successor to the Nexus 5 will not happen before October, and yet it seems that its design has been unveiled. Several reports from factory to be published on the canvas we indeed show what it might look like. The rumors about the next generation of smartphones are made more and more lately. Suggesting an output not so long ago. And if the Nexus Huawei seems to have gone to be the best equipped in the range, the Nexus 5 (2015) LG is the most anticipated. Android fans are indeed very likely to wait for the successor of Nexus 5, which was a commercial success upon its release in late 2013. And it is indeed the latter referred to today as the serial leaker @OnLeaks, which is associated with the site uSwitch for the occasion of this leak, has published several photos giving us a glimpse of what it might look like.

These visual, which would be based on plant information provided by manufacturers of accessories, allow us to distinguish a back cover that comes close to the one we had seen it a few weeks ago . We especially find the fingerprint reader located below the photo sensor. For the rest, we also find some of the elements of the likely technical specifications of the device, such as double built-in speaker on the front of the terminal, or C-USB port on the bottom edge. According to sources pertaining us this information, the Nexus 5 (2015) would have the following dimensions: 146.9 x 72.9 x 8 mm. However, the leaker who made the visual seems to have given it a plastic back cover when the last sounds evoked a unibody metal shell.

Otherwise, remember that this Nexus 5 (2015) is expected with a screen of 5.2 inches under which it would hide a Snapdragon SoC 620, and 4 GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM. It also equipped with a Sony IMX278 13 megapixel sensor (with a 6-elements lens f / 1.8, OIS, laser autofocus and dual flash), a 4 megapixel webcam in the front, a battery of 3180 mAh, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi connections, NFC and Bluetooth 4.2. The Nexus 5 (2015) could be formalized in October or at the same period as its predecessors. If that were the case, this would leave us only two months to wait.
