New leaks by regular leakster OnLeaks carry renders of a Sony Xperia smartphone that could be the Sony Xperia 5 Plus, though this is not a confirmed conclusion. Some details can, however, be discerned from these renders subject to official endorsement later. The obvious thing to notice is the tall design with an aspect ratio of 21:9. Sony has released other Xperia models earlier with similar displays and the size can be predicted to be 6.6 inches. It is also likely to be an OLED display.
Could This be a Premium Model?
The renders indicate that the bezels on all sides are minimal and the overall appearance, in addition to the OLED display, leads observers to suggest this must be a premium model. This is based on the fact that the company has not fitted the OLED panels earlier on the non-premium models.
Other details that can be noticed from the renders are that the rear camera setup has three sensors including a Time of Flight (ToF) camera. The front selfie camera appears to be an 8MP sensor. The 3.5mm jack has been included on the top edge of the phone. This is an unusual development since the latest models of almost all brands are trying to get rid of this component in favor of wireless transmission of sounds from the phone. This may even confuse those who are predicting that this could be a premium or flagship model.
No Under-Display Fingerprint Scanner
Yet another feature you can notice is that the Sony Xperia 5 Plus, or whichever model these renders represent, has a physical fingerprint scanner on the side button. This would mean there would be no under-display fingerprint scanner. There is hardly any possibility of a Face Unlock feature being included.
As things stand, it may be fair to expect that Sony will use the CES 2020 platform this week to unveil its new model and some clarity will emerge if the leaked renders are that of the Sony Xperia 5 Plus or not.
