Possible Sony Xperia 5 Plus leaks with headphone jack, triple cameras, side-mounted fingerprint scanner

Sony has been trying out taller than usual smartphones for the last year or so. Their previous two models, Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 both have very unique aspect ratios of 21:9, which makes both of them very tall. Now, it looks like the company is going to continue with this feature, as new leaks of Sony Xperia 5 Plus shows a display of the same kind. It also shares other characteristic design choices with previous models.

New renders, courtesy of OnLeaks, show a tall 6.6-inch OLED display with very small bezels on top and bottom. Thankfully, these bezels are filled with dual front-facing stereo speakers. OLED displays are something Sony’s previous mid-rangers didn’t have, which makes us think the Xperia 5 Plus is a flagship. At the top, you’ll also see an 8MP selfie camera. Sony also kept the boxy look from the previous two flagships that I’ve mentioned above. As for the new stuff, you’ll see a Time-of-Flight sensor on the back of the phone, inside the triple camera system.

Speaking of features that set the phone apart, the Xperia 5 Plus also has a 3.5mm audio jack on the top frame. The addition of the headphone jack was a surprise for me, as it’s a feature often found in mid-range or budget devices, and this device looks like a flagship. We may have a bigger display to thank for that addition, as it adds a little bit of additional space inside the device frame. Another thing we can see is the side-mounted fingerprint scanner, which means Sony isn’t hopping on the under-display or Face Unlock-only trend just yet.

That’s basically everything we know about this device right now. Keep in mind that the Sony Xperia 5 Plus may not even be the real name of the device. It goes without saying that the release date and price of this device are unknown to us. Though it may be revealed at CES 2020 this week, I still wouldn’t place any bets on it.
