The successor to Sony’s more compact 2019 flagship – thought to be the Xperia 5 II – has surfaced in the form of renders, specifications and what appears to be a leaked official promotional video.
The original Xperia 5 released in late-September last year and it looks as though its follow-up, the 5 II, is on track for a release in around the same time frame.
Evan Blass (a.k.a. @evleaks on Twitter) has established himself as a source for reliable leaks relating to a range of phone makers’ unreleased devices and it’s his Patreon that looks to have served up the first complete render of the phone.
Meanwhile, Android Headlines has produced what looks to be a full spec sheet for the device, along with a convincingly-official looking leaked promotional video.
The cited specs are as follows, placing it in line with Sony’s other 2020 flagship – the Xperia 1 II – albeit with proportions that are barely unchanged from last year’s Xperia 5 (it’s a tad thinner):
6.1in Full HD+ OLED display w/:
120Hz refresh rate
240Hz touch sampling rate
Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor
128 GB storage (expandable via microSD)
12Mp f/1.7 wide 24mm w/ 82° FoV + OIS/EIS
12Mp f/2.4 telephoto w/ 3x zoom + OIS/EIS
12Mp f/2.2 ultrawide 16mm w/ 124° FoV + EIS
Up to 4K HDR video recording
8Mp front-facing camera
3.5mm headphone jack
USB-PD 3.0 charging
While to suggested hardware looks as though it would make a good fit for the Xperia 5 II, Android Headlines doesn’t cite a source, leaving us wondering if this spec and feature rundown is more of an educated guess, as opposed to an information set from a connected source.
If what’s stated is to be believed, we don’t have too long to find out, however, with the phone set to be announced on 17 September.
