A render of Sony’s Xperia 5 II has appeared. According to the render, the smartphone has a 3.5 mm jack in contrast to its predecessor, and the fingerprint scanner is no longer recessed in the side of the housing.
The change to no longer recessed the fingerprint scanner will have to do with the complaints that Sony has had from owners of previous models with such a scanner, thinks XDA-Developers who saw the render on the Patreon page from @evleaks.
In addition, there is a 3.5 mm jack on top of the device, something that last year’s predecessor does not have. Sony also put the fingerprint scanner on the Xperia 1 II from earlier this year. In all other respects, the render resembles the model presented last year.
That probably means that the phone has the same OLED screen of 14.2 x 6.1 cm, good for an area of 87 square centimeters. The screen has a diagonal of 6.1 “and a resolution of 2520×1080 pixels. That’s the same 21: 9 aspect ratio as last year’s Xperia 1 II and Sony phones. Three cameras can be seen on the back.
Sony has repeatedly announced IFA Xperia phones at the electronics fair in recent years. That fair will take place next week, but is because of the corona virus outbreak limited in number of stands and visitors.
