Sony Xperia Z5 tipped for September under ‘S60’ codename

Sony Xperia Z3+ 27

Sony’s Xperia Z3+ has only just made it to the UK, but its hurried release cycle means even more of the company’s handsets are being readied up.

According to the latest rumours, those devices are specifically named the Xperia S60 and Xperia S70.

Those, however, are likely codenames, and will probably be replaced with more conventional Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact branding upon release, alongside the suspected Xperia Z5 Premium.

A report, which comes courtesy of German site WinFuture, claims that both handsets will launch at IFA 2015.

That’s the annual Berlin-based technology tradeshow that runs from September 4 to 9, and usually plays host to a number of smartphone launches.

The report is light on details, but does claim that both devices will carry 32GB of storage as standard. That’s the same as the current flagship Xperia Z3+.

It’s also claimed that the S60 will be peddled in white, black, and yellow colour options, while the S70 will be available in white, black, gold, and green hues.

For pricing, the report points to somewhere between $850 and $920 USD, which equates to roughly £540 to £600.

Unfortunately, we must take this report with a pinch of salt, as we can’t verify the information and Sony hasn’t officially confirmed the existence of these handsets.

However, it should be noted that Sony operates on a brisk six-monthly release cycle, so it’s no surprise we’re already hearing rumours about the next entries to the Xperia line-up.

No one is allowed to get hyped about an Xperia device after the Z3+. Sony has been so disappointing lately and I do love Xperias.
