Alleged Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact leak again, no USB Type-C on board
posted by Peter K. / Aug 06, 2015, 5:59 AM
A new leak by the same source popped up today, showing us the alleged Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact from the bottom. Thanks to the newest pictures it becomes clear that these devices won't sport USB Type-C ports but will resort to regular microUSB ones.
There are also no visible flaps on the ports, which could mean two things: either the devices won't be dust-, water-proof, or Sony will employ the same technology that can be found on the Xperia M5 (flapless port and water-resistant phone).
As far as the duo unannounced Sony devices are concerned, there's the chance that we will see them unveiled at this year's IFA trade show. Actually, Sony has already revealed it will host a keynote on September 2, which fills us with hope that the two devices below will debut on that date.
Here's to hoping.

Sony always late when it comes to features so no surprised to see no USB type c Minimum innovation yet maximum price tag.

I don't think so, it is more likely the Eyelet for Straps... every Sony phone has one since its sony-ericsson era... However the Compact doesn't seem to have one and, believe it or not, if it doesn't come with one, it might be a dealbreaker for me... I can live without a case, but ever since I started using a Wrist Strap for my phones, it is a MUST have for me.... In my opinion, a case only provide protection when the phone gets drop, but it is no guaranteed to survive... But a Wrist Strap prevents the falls in the first place...

Any phone that comes out this year with type c will only be 2.0 or 2.1 or 3.0 USB, so you just looking for cable and get nothing new The sd 810 as no USB 3.1 support and going by the specs the ther say no support for 820, so we find out in aug if there will be any phones with 3.1 support for next year But you 100% do not just need a type c port on any phone this year, apart from if it's got may be 3.0 as it's a smaller port but then you need all new cables and normal USB will not work unlike the 3.0 port

You meen the chinese phones then? I think this is more finding somthing wrong and to hate. All well known ( atleast for the west) like samsung, Apple htc, LG and MS dossent have it either, is the upcomming S6+ comming with it or the 6s? or the note 5 ? if so, mabye they should hurry. But for now i dont see why that suddenly got so imoprtant to wine about. there is more important things to focus on when it commes to the z5 than a fakking USB-c

what do people really consider "innovation" these days? do you want your specs doubled every generation? do you want some wild new technology every generation? do you understand how these things work? we've hit a plateau this year on available phone technologies and instead of being satisfied with a similar upgrade schedule as the past few years (although it HAS slowed down a bit.. still not as drastically as people like to pretend) some people simply MUST flame every company for not including a fishing sensor.. or somehow being able to track heart rate accurately from your phone. or a way to create instant camp fires like the boy scouts. what is it really that you expect from this 'innovation' ? you do realize samsung alone spends BILLIONS on R&D so you can throw up your hands and be like "PSH no innovation samsung. give it to me or you're a dead company"

Although I agree with you the companies are also to blame here. They expect the consumer to pay highly inflated prices on their tech. If I'm paying top dollar I better be getting something better than what I had last year. If Samsung for instance released the S6 for the same cost of the previous generation they probably would have had better sales. Instead they raised the prices similar to what Apple did with the iPhone. The problem here is the Apple has no competition with selling phones that run IOS. Samsung has plenty of competition selling a phone with the same OS as others do. (Apples to Oranges)

There's no need for C yet. Fast charge is much more appealing feature than a dual sided USB port, which is what it is atm cuz no one is taking advantage of the rest of it yet, atleast not this year, so what's the point? One thing that is terrible is the giant bezels still. Nexus 6 and LG G series has shown that this is pointless now.

Experts maybe b4 not now! now their eyes r plauged by iphone6 and s6. See their explanation for capless usb port. Sony for the last couple of device they r using capless usb and still it is dust and waterproof. Phonearena is acting like they dont know it!!

Sony and other Japanese phones just look the same. That boxy design is getting old and pretty damn boring. Come up with something new or quit your mobile business.

This fella is a shameless person. He created god knows how many accounts here on PA. If I have to guess I'll say at least 50. Phonearena keeps banning this person but shamelessly he keeps coming here to troll. His other accounts SuperNova is already banned. Here take a look -http://www.phonearena.com/user
He is such a shameless loser. I believe HugoBarraCyanogenmod and all other patriot account is also his accounts.
To PA please banned this Racist Bastard who always use his Country/Race to belittle other person and their choice.

Sony fanboys are actually the ones getting so annoying... c'mon with just a bit of criticism and we all know that if this is really the Z5 then Z, Z1, Z2, Z3, Z4 and Z5 just look the same.. accept it!
