Sony Xperia 5 Plus renders reveal tall display, front speakers and 3.5mm audio jack


The smartphone wing of Sony has been struggling since the past few years, but it has been consistently launching new phones. Last September, Sony had announced the Xperia 5 flagship phone at the IFA 2019 tech trade show. Reputed tipster @OnLeaks has collaborated with SlashLeaks to showcase the CAD renders of the forthcoming Sony Xperia 5 Plus smartphone. The Japanese tech giant is known for launching new flagship phones at Mobile World Congress (MWC) tech exhibition. Hence, it is likely that the Xperia 5 Plus may go official at the MWC 2020 in the coming month.

The Sony Xperia 5 Plus can be seen flaunting its 6.6-inch display in the CAD renders. Being a Plus edition phone, it features a larger display than the 6.1-inch screen found on the Xperia 5. As it can be seen, the phone sports super-slim side bezels. The upper and lower bezels are slightly thick, and they are equipped with dual front-firing speakers. The upper bezel is equipped with an 8-megapixel selfie camera, claims the leakster. The tall appearance of the phone suggests that it will continue to sport a 21:9 aspect ratio like the Xperia 5.

A major addition on the Plus model is the inclusion of a 3.5mm audio jack which was absent on the Xperia 5. The boxy frame of the device seems to be made out of aluminum. The bottom edge of the device has a USB-C port. The right side of the device has volume buttons, side-facing fingerprint reader and a dedicated camera shutter. The fingerprint scanner may double up as a power key.

In terms of dimensions, the Sony Xperia 5 Plus measures 168.2 x 71.6 x 8.1mm. The device is bigger than the Xperia 1 and slightly larger than the Xperia 1 that had debuted as company’s first flagship smartphone in 2018. At present, there is no word on the specifications of the device. Being a flagship device, it could be equipped with the new Snapdragon 865 mobile platform.
