Sony Xperia Z5 concept images envision a slim phablet with 4K display

Sony Xperia Z5 concept images envision a slim phablet with 4K display
The Sony Xperia Z4 announcement got us more puzzled rather than excited, and the company's smartphone plans are rather unclear at this point. Not long after the Z4's Japan-exclusive announcement, speculation about an all-new flagship smartphone for the rest of the world began. Renders of a certain Xperia P2 leaked, showing a fresh, if obviously "photoshopped" design, coupled with a heavyweight spec sheet. 

At this point, it's clear that there's something more to expect from Sony, but we can't do anything other than speculate and wait for the future to unfold. In the interim, here are some concept Xperia Z5 renders to throw on the table and ponder. Whoever created them envisioned a remarkably thin phablet with minimal screen bezels and a 4K-resolution screen. The build materials of choice are metal and glass. On the inside, one would find an octa-core CPU running at 3.2GHz, paired with 4GB of RAM. The phablet brings a fingerprint scanner and waterproofing on-board as well. There's a 4500mAh battery running the show. 

Strangely, we don't get to learn anything about the rear cam, although 21MP is a safe bet. But the front snapper is a 10MP one, which ought to make selfie takers all the more happy! So, what do you think of this concept? Is it plausible? Would you prefer this design approach in place of the familiar Xperia look to which the Z-series has been holding onto? Let us know in the comments below.

Unrealistic concepts don't get me excited. It's just throwing out huge numbers or making something really slim with no bezels.

Nice one,but not realistic. Current SoC-s can't handle 4K flawlessly. So I would be happy if Sony makes a phone with 2K and Tegra X1 chip,why not, it could be awesome.

I guess fingerprint scanner on side power button will be applied to Xperia P2 is announced September from IFA. Xperia Z5(depends on SD820) is expected full screen fingerprint recognition in November or early next year.

I don know why they lose their time doing these ugly and unreal concepts. Sony is never going to do such phone. Never.

now we are talking sony now we are talking after my experience with Samsung in note4 and the very Iow level of care to this flagship I don't want to go Samsung pdts again (I don't say the note4 is not good device but Samsung didn't give it any damn attention in updates and features)

if you don't appreciate even something impossible like upcoming ZTE Nubia handset that comes with 3.5 Ghz chipset and 8GB of RAM, you won't really care either.
