Sony Xperia 5 II may have new display latest leak suggests

A new leak suggests that the upcoming Sony Xperia 5 II will have a new display and will have a headphone jack.

The Sony Xperia 5 II will be the company’s flagship device for this year. This device stands as the spiritual successor to the Xperia 5 handset, which hit the market last year. Recently, multiple details about the upcoming smartphone have been leaked into the community.

One leak suggests that Sony will launch the smartphone on September 17. However, unlike its predecessor, the new Sony Xperia will be a lot smaller.

New details

According to some leaks, the upcoming smartphone from Sony will look like a smaller version of the Xperia 1 II. Considering some of Sony’s latest design concept, the new smartphone will most likely feature a tall body.

One particular rumor suggests that the smartphone will feature a 6.1-inch Full HD+ OLED Panel. What is even more interesting about this is that the display will support up to 120Hz refresh rate. If this is true, the smartphone will be a powerful gaming device.

The upcoming phone is also expected to have a physical headphone jack. Some recent flagship smartphones have ditched the headphone jack. However, the community did not like it, and some hardware manufacturers have decided to reinstate it.

Additional specs

Sony has yet to confirm the specs of its upcoming flagship smartphone officially. However, several leaks have hinted about what to expect about the upcoming Sony Xperia 5 II.

For one, the phone is expected to sport a triple-camera setup for its rear-facing rear camera. This is a similar configuration to that of the Xperia 1 II. The main camera is composed of a 12-megapixel main camera, 12-megapixel ultrawide, and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens.

The main camera supports f/1.7 aperture and a 24mm lens. Additionally, the telephoto lens supports up to 3x zoom. There is one missing thing, though, and that is the time-of-flight sensor.

Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 865 chipset. It is expected to sport at least 8GB of memory, and 128GB of storage space. The smartphone supports storage space expansion through its microSD card support.

Considering these specs, the new Sony Xperia is well within the premium tier of smartphones. Since it is a stripped-down version of the Xperia 1 II, it is expected to cost less as well. Rumors suggest that the phone will cost below US$1,000.
