Sony will hold a press conference to present its new products at IFA 2019 later today, but it unintentionally provided a clue to them a few hours before the event began. During the technical tests of the streaming of the event, something went wrong and the movie inserted in the Sony Europe YouTube channel became publicly visible before being made private. It was enough to capture some images of the presentation from which Xperia 5 emerged.
Sony Xperia 5
This name was never mentioned by rumors. But would identify the terminal previously known as Xperia 2 and already the subject of previous rumors. Sony would then choose to call Xperia 5 its next top range, heir to the Xperia 1. The images taken from the streaming anticipate some details on the technical features of the smartphone, especially those of the display equipped with OLED panel in 21:9 format and HDR support. We do not know the screen size yet, but the first rumors do not go in the direction of a particularly compact device. We mention the existence of Dolby Atmos audio too.
The images also confirm the triple rear camera and the reduced display frames – especially the side ones. Other information taken from the streaming.
