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.
