Alleged Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact show up in leaked UA profile with Snapdragon 810 on board

Just a couple of days ago, a report from Germany claimed that Sony will introduce two high-end smartphones before IFA 2015 in Berlin, an event that will start on September 4, 2015. According to that report, the two upcoming high-end handsets from Sony are codenamed Sony Xperia S60 and Sony Xperia S70. Shortly after, reputable Sony-centric tech blog Xperia-Blog stepped forward to claim that the codenames are real, but that the actual model numbers will be different, more in line with several previous leaks that referred to currently unavailable Sony devices.
As it turns out, two upcoming Sony smartphones codenamed E6603 and E5803 have been just spotted in a leaked UA profile along with a few of the most important specs. The E6603 is thought to be the upcoming Sony Xperia Z5 while the E5803 is said to be the Xperia Z5 Compact. The user agent profile lists MSM8944, which is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, as the chipset of choice for both smartphone models. Other details that the leak reveals is that the E6603/Xperia Z5 will run a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels while the E5803/Xperia Z5 Compact will run a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels.
Unfortunately for those of you hoping to see a major design refresh of the Xperia line-up, Xperia Blog says that unnamed insider sources have confirmed that the Xperia Z5 and the Xperia Z5 Compact will come with the highly familiar Omnibalance design language, one that Sony has been milking since February 2013, when it released the original Xperia Z.
While Sony is very likely to continue using the Xperia Z branding with its H2 2015 smartphone line-up, it should be noted that sources are currently a bit uncertain of the actual names that the two handsets are going to bear, especially since Sony only added to the confusion by branding the Japanese-exclusive Xperia Z4 as the Xperia Z3+ internationally.
R.I.P. Sony. 2015 is already the hottest year in earth history. Nobody wants a pocket warmer anymore.

Good thing is that it will be waterproof, you can cool it in a bucket. :-)

Now you can choose only between Galaxy S or Note series or iPhone... The others are "hot" guys. I miss 2013 when you have a lot of different choices like HTC One, LG G2, Galaxy S4/Note3, iPhone 5s, Xperia Z2 etc...

Two things that may give us hope. A rumored 810 version 2 that has no overheating. A report that says slightly underclocking the 810 can improve Battery Life by about 24 percent -this would also create less thermal throttling. Also- manufacturers SHOULD have a User Mode Battery Save and Heat Reducing Mode that slightly underclocks CPU by 20% for poor reception Areas where Phone overheats on Calls etc. Underclocking by toggle would not affect Call Quality- just cool the phone down and reduce Battery Drain- something to consider as an App also.

Z3 Compact user here...... The Z5/Z5C will be a major flop if it packs the 810.... such disappointment. I was looking forward to the next Compact... On another note, my Z3C with 801 and still on KitKat 4.4.4 ROCKS!!!!!!

It's as if they're trying to fail!!...Why Sony WHY? It doesn't matter if the 810 is improved,at this point in time the 810 is stigmatized as the "hottest" chipset and no phone with it should expect success. Plus the design being the same for the fifth generation in a row is commercial suicide. Can't they just beg Samsung with a deal on mobile sensors or something to use the Exynos 7420? Not that Sammy would accept but at least try

Do people realize most of these decisions were made at least a year or two before now? This was already planned and production was most likely well in by the time the overheating issues came to light. They can't just scrap it all and lose billions of profits because you're crying and majority of consumers aren't tech savy like the people on these sites so they may not even care or know what a SD810 is.

Get over the 810's problems, stop bitching already. If the camera and battery life rocks I'm buying it. Period. Phones get hot when you push then too much, regardless of the processor, so just shut up already.

Leave it to PA to stuff every news item about Android with bucketloads of commentary. So Sony has been "Milking" omnibalance? What's wrong with that? To me the sets look better than an iPhone, incidentally, which has been milking the same design forever. As for SD 810, I have a One M9 and I see absolutely no overheating under any scenario. And its blazing (ha-ha) fast. Who needs your (biased, skewed, Apple-centric) opinion? Just post the news.
