New renders of the Sony Xperia 5 II
The new renders show that Sony will maintain a continuity design for the successor to the Sony Xperia 5. The Xperia 5 II has relatively thick bezels at the top and bottom. However, this will offer a design without notch or display cut-out. Plus, its 21:9 aspect ratio will make the smartphone feel compact and easy to use.
On the rear, the ZEISS T * mark is displayed between the second and third camera sensors. The device’s right column has the volume button, a side fingerprint reader, and another physical button, which could be dedicated to being the camera shutter. The Xperia 5 did not have a 3.5mm audio jack, but the new model will bring it back. In addition to black and gray, the Xperia 5 II will also come in a blue colorway.

The Sony Xperia 5 II will feature a 6.1-inch OLED HDR+ screen with Full HD+ resolution.
