There are no breaking news at the moment

The Xperia Z4 has only just broken cover but we already have our first look at what could be the Xperia Z5 – and it’s quite a departure for Sony in the design department.

The leak comes courtesy of serial tipster @upleaks, so it has some weight and respectability attached to it, and is accompanied by the simple caption “Sony Lavender”.

That’s the first time we’ve heard that name and so it’s difficult to determine exactly what this is or where it fits in the Sony line-up. That said, it might just be the next flagship phone from the electronics giant.

Design for life

It certainly has a very narrow bezel, which would give the handset an expensive and high-end feel. Also visible is a front-facing LED flash reminiscent of what we’ve seen on the Xperia A4.

The fact that this is a very rough-and-ready rendering would match the theory that development of the Xperia Z5 is still in its early stages, so we might have to wait until 2016 to see the finished product.

In the background of all of this is the uncertainty about whether or not Sony even wants to keep making smartphones any more. If the company does plan to continue challenging Apple, Samsung, HTC, LG, Motorola and the big Chinese firms then it’s going to need to pull out all the stops with its next device.
