Sony Xperia 5 Plus leak details
If these renders and the video are indeed legit, Sony’s upcoming flagship will have a 6.6-inch OLED display. As per OnLeaks, the massive screen of the Xperia 5 Plus could also have a 21:9 aspect ratio to make one-handed use a bit easier. The device is likely to have dimensions of around 168.2 x 71.6 x 8.1mm.
Moving to the back, the renders reveal the Sony Xperia 5 Plus having a tri-lens rear camera system paired with a time-of-flight sensor for portrait mode photos. However, there’s no information available yet about the specifics of the camera setup. Upfront, the Sony Xperia 5 Plus is likely to have an 8MP camera for selfies and video calls. The back of alleged Xperia 5 Plus could also sport a glossy finish glass.
Other physical aspects of the smartphone highlighted in the 360-degree video include a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and volume rocker key on the right (similar to what the Sony Xperia 5 had). The top edge of the smartphone has a 3.5mm audio jack, while the bottom edge houses a USB Type-C port and a mic. The CAD renders also showcase the smartphone having a considerably bigger screen with slight bezels on the top and bottom edge of the display and dual front-firing speakers.
There is no rumor about the launch of Xperia 5 Plus, but we expect that Sony might unveil the smartphone during the ongoing CES 2020 event or at the upcoming MWC 2020 (Mobile World Congress) in late February.
