Sony is expected to reveal its new Xperia Z5 Android flagship at IFA next week, but as is usually the case, the rumor mill has started revealing info about the device ahead of time.
Xperia Blog has shared a few press images of the Xperia Z5 that are said to have recently been published by Sony’s social media team before quickly being pulled.

The shots also show that the device will have a 23-megapixel rear camera, up from the Xperia Z4’s 20.7-megapixel rear camera.
The images also show a few different color options for the Xperia Z5. There’s a white phone, a gold model, and a dark turquoise version.

So that’s why it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Xperia Z5 look similar to the Z4, but with small changes like the Xperia engraving shown in today’s leak.

The phones are also said to have 23-megapixel cameras, a detail that’s backed up by today’s other leak. And while the source of these leaked specs don’t appear to have come from an official Sony page, prominent leaker Evan Blass says that the line up with what he’s heard
