Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact leak again, this time with some bad news


Another day calls for another look at the upcoming Xperia Z5 and its Compact sibling. Twitter tipster ViziLeaks is back with a new image of the rumored smartphones, though this time the leak comes with some disappointing news.

You can see in the image above that both the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact will sport regular microUSB connectors. That means the company won’t be adopting reversible USB-C technology, at least not for now. On the bright side, that means we probably won’t have to sacrifice QuickCharge capability. Hopefully Sony will also include wireless charging in its new flagship phone.

Based on previous leaks we’re also expecting both devices to feature a fingerprint reader built into the power button. Overall the design isn’t expected to change much compared to previous models, though that button is getting bigger to accommodate the new sensor. As a result the volume controls have also moved closer to the bottom of the phone.

We’re also expecting the Xperia Z5 to pack a 4500mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon processor and a 20.7-megapixel camera. Meanwhile, the Xperia Z5 Compact should be able to include most of the same specs and features in a smaller but slightly thicker body.

Sony appears to be set to unveil its new Xperia Z lineup next month at an event on Sept. 2. But before then you can probably expect plenty more leaks for the Z5 and the Z5 Compact.
