Five new Sony Xperia model numbers outed

by XB on 21st April 2015

in Rumours, Xperia C5 Ultra, Xperia M5, Xperia Z5 series

Xperia logoSony Mobile may have talked about a more streamlined product portfolio going forward, but five new model numbers have just been unveiled by the Indonesian Postel Regulatory site. This includes the Sony E6833 – the closest previous handset to this model was the Xperia Z Ultra (C68XX).

Then there is the Sony E6683 – could this be the international variant of the Xperia Z4 (E65XX) that was announced in Japan yesterday? We could see a broadly similarly-specced handset but with a higher 2K resolution display perhaps. Another potential high end handset is the Sony E5803, which may be a ‘Z4 Compact’ given the numbering. The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact had model number D58XX.

Then there are two mid-range models including the Sony E5663, we haven’t seen this model number before. Then there is the Sony E5563 – previous handsets that used this model number include the Xperia Z1 Compact (D5503) and Xperia ZR (C55XX). It is interesting to see so many model numbers being revealed at once, it looks like these handsets will see us out to the end of 2015.

New 2015 Sony Xperia models

Thanks Hoa and kurtdean!

    a single word for Sony:
    BEST <3

    pls stay with us whatever happens. don't play with our feel like b4 (I mean willing to sell). xD

  • Nodar Sixarulidze

    Xperia Z4 Compact :D

  • James Neuburger Gaston


  • Nodar Sixarulidze

    share from esato

  • DBS

    As usual, for a ridiculously high price. I paid 400€ for my Z3C on launch day in England. When it (finally) came to Fnac, those burglars were asking 560€ for it.

    Moral da História: NUNCA se compra telemóveis em Portugal.

  • Bane_Hardly

    I swear to god Sony I will personally send you a Cadbury’s Milk tray if you release the Z4 Compact this year. I’m done with my Galaxy S4, I’m fucking done, I want that compact goodness. Give it to me.

  • James Neuburger Gaston

    Sony Georgia posted z3 neo photos some days ago… I think we can’t trust that much….

  • James Neuburger Gaston

    Never come to Brazil friend :)

  • Nodar Sixarulidze

    Sony’s Xperia Z4 is only for Japan, company said to unveil another flagship device for the rest of the world at the end of May

  • Makiz

    May in Greece too, confirmed today by Sony mobile GR.

  • Shimoda

    Does anybody know when is the next sony conference?

  • ssjdino

    Damn Portugal, Germany got it for 279€ on

  • so where

    Honestly im laughing at Sony. Still got no lollipop on tmo z3, same old camera and bad software in Z4 and more cheap piss poor sealing middle range phones. I used to love this brand. Now i just love my PS4.

  • Raj Singh

    Sony makes way too many phones…

  • DBS

    Already did. Twice =P Everything was cheaper thanks to the conversion rate between the Euro and Reais.

  • gamer324

    That’s a load of bull feces, check the source it’s a Russian blog you probably have never heard which got its ‘tip’ from its own sources. Gsmarena did a really piss poor reporting on that particular story.
    Honestly it’s like the whole mobile journalism landscape is filled with retard hacks whose sole source of pride is being the first to report an ambiguous rumor from an unstable source before anyone else. But with mainstream business sites (forbes and bloomberg) still doing a pissier job at it, what’s the point in complaining.
    It is HIGHLY misguided to believe that Sony’s global model would be superior to the japanese model, Japan is Sony’s strongest market, and a company so focused on “kando” will not screw over its most loyal userbase. They may release a ‘Pro’ (for lack of a better term) model with 2k, but it would sit alongside the 1080p variant in and outside Japan; it would not be a case of Japan getting a weaker specced device.
    Personally, I’m Still hoping for that 12″ 4k tablet , but with s820 only being available at end of 15/start of 16, I don’t really see it happening this year.
    My guess at the five new model numbers :
    Z4 Ultra, Z4 2k, Z4 Compact 1 global and 2 japan-only carrier variants.
    All conjecture of course.

  • I had to buy my Z2 in Expansys since it was a lot cheaper compared to Worten and Fnac or even Media Markt

    But this M4 Aqua is the Dual version, don´t forget that!

  • Akand

    Very confusing!!!! I don’t know what Sony is actually going to do. Why aren’t they caring customers’ desires??
    No care for customers, No reward in return. And finally they will loose a huge amount this year for sure if they don’t care us.
    We love Sony heart and soul and in return Sony is repeatedly giving us Shittt!!!!

  • apolloa

    So which one is the Compact? Bit of a naff photo leak to be honest as you have nothing to tell it’s a new Z4 model, could be the Z3 for all we know.

  • inspire

    Sony Georgia is not officially related to Sony. It’s just some bull sh++ blog fb page which steals stuff from here and there and then puts big watermarks after it’s name as if it is the source itself.
    The guy behind is the biggest spammer in esato.
    So don’t even bother to click Sony Georgia :)
    if a rumor is on xperiablog only then there are chances of happening :)

  • this is promising, hopefully there is a compact model as well. Would love to pick up a few of each. I would say sony has done everything right on the product side and just needs to get the awareness factor way up.

  • Killian Khoo

    Too many phones ?
    So far as I know this year Sony just launch one phone and that is on CES 2015 for international ~

  • Raj Singh

    Holding out for the Z Ultra successor… I hope this is it.
    Some of those Sony concept are pretty cool too.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Honestly I hope they release their new phones with S820 like you said cause I’d never want to get Z4 if it’s having S810.

  • Raj Singh

    You don’t think they have too many variants?
    Sony might have launched only one phone this year but their product portfolio has way too many phones in it. That’s my opinion.
    This post just revealed to you 5 more models. That’s too many considering the financial situation they’re in.

  • Raj Singh

    Samsung loves to flood the market with gadget spam.
    They make way too many phones, too, but they can afford it (for now).

  • Reon

    I have a feeling that my breakup with Sony is just in sight.

  • Killian Khoo

    Many variants ??
    What do you means?
    Do you really know what are you saying now ??
    Are u saying that Sony using the same SoC for too many devices ??
    If it so, you just a geek that complaining a company that try not use too much money for licensing too many SoC for each of the devices ~

  • Harrold Pok

    I think the E6683 is the Z4 Ultra

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    Z4, Z4 Ultra and Z4 Compact all at once? Now that’s a party. ^^

    Pls give it to me that chocolate.. .kidding. What’s wrong ur galaxy s4 btw?

  • Lovelesh Khatter

    Whats about of release date of m4 aqua in india

  • Tangent Lin

    I do agree with your statement. But in my country, their after sales service is really bad. After 3 weeks of using my new Z3, speaker problem and send to service center, component have to wait for ETA of 2 weeks to arrive.

  • Reza

    If Samsung can afford why don’t they (sony) just positive thinking bro..

  • Arda Akca

    Well I have Lollipop on my Z Ultra bro. Try using PC companion.

  • crazychef83

    Im waiting to see what comes from sony my xperia z has taken a beating from my toddler and the rubber pieces from the flaps have ripped. So there goes my water proofness

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    then you beat his phone and rip his flaps in return when he buys a phone

  • James Neuburger Gaston

    Not electronics ;)

  • F?r Tibor

    Wow! I can’t wait these Xperia models, especially Z4 Ultra!

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    well, it better at least have a 2K screen

  • Hamed Azizi

    Please Z4 Ultra this year

  • crazychef83

    Well thats going to be in at least a decade. She is only 4

  • Ahmed Ghorab

    S820 wouldn’t be out before 2016 so you can catch it in Z5 maybe

  • Alwardy

    For what 2k ?? i can’t see any sense for using it

  • ZOD

    But Bravia division and Xperia division are cancer for Sony

  • Eduardo Otero

    Since they want to be an iPhone everything is wrong with every Galaxy xD

  • Eduardo Otero

    That picture’s gotta be fake because in Japan there are no Compact phones they are f so that should be Xperia Z4f

  • SC

    Z4 compact with metal frame?

  • goldenblls

    I absolutely can’t wait to see the new Xperia Compact. Wondering if it will be slimmer with a metal frame. Wooowooowooo!

  • Xperia Z4 : Official video !!!

  • We have the new player in the Music app and a new animated wallpaper

  • marcy_ff2

    I don’t live in Portugal anymore, but everything fnac of worten sells is overpriced!

    And don’t get me started on Brazil. That import charge is insane!

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Yea I hope so, Plus they should go for 14nm or 10nm, it’ll be a powpowerhouse hopefully.

    If you have reservations about s810 because of the overheating fud, read this :

    The only overheating device with s810 right now is the g flex 2 (and as I recall that was only in benchmarks, not even in demanding games), and LG has a history of overheating issues with the nexus 4, lg g3 etc. all saying hi.
    HTC One m9 doesn’t overheat after they throttled it correctly.
    And even with the throttling, the One m9 gives miles better on-screen gpu performance (you know, the one that matters) than the s6.
    S810 is a good SoC, it’s just that the media loves to gobble up rumors no matter how stupid or deliberate they seem.
    The exynos 7420 is a more powerful SoC for sure, but isn’t THAT much better, especially if we’re comparing s810 1080p with exynos 7420 2k (which is the practical case right now) then it’s actually worse.

  • Timel

    Good for Samsung that they don’t want to be Sony lol

  • Timel

    2k screen is absolutely bullshit

  • Eduardo Otero

    Actually Galaxy phones would be better if they tried to make a better Xperia. BTW they might have started by copying the glass on their back

  • Reza

    What’s the original things that came from samesung???

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    then which resolution you want?

  • Reza

    I called it “The greatest copiers on the planet”

  • Reza

    I think he preferred QVGA screen..

  • Winter Soldier

    New music app is beautiful.
    can anyone shared this live wallpaper & music app

  • work online making money with no effort by standing in front of target every morning and snatching hard to find action figures quickly returning to your small apartment to post them on eBay making pennies on the dollar! It’s almost no effort! All you have to do is sell your soul by standing in front of the store at 7 o’clock in the morning and running as fast as you can once the doors open losing all little what’s left of your humanity…
    and it’s not off topic because the whole time you’re waiting for the doors to open you’re checking the latest updates on your awesome Xperia Z 3

  • Chris

    Lol, FullHD IS 2K

  • Nodar Sixarulidze
  • wasim

    is there any Walkman edition i heard there will Music edition Sony Xperia Z4 Music – Feel the air , come with Snapdragon 801 with 32 gb ? is this going to be one of the model ? i am waiting since i heard that S-master will be there . please let us know if any one know about that?

  • Keion London

    Ok I’ve made up my mind, if Sony doesn’t bring anything appealing this September with respect to their international flagship I’m going for the S6 Egde. Judging from their strategy this year I am not gonna wait an entire year to be disappointed again. Many might disagree with me but I just need to be honest.

  • Amir


  • Micheal Archer

    Well, this seems promising. If indeed Sony will be releasing a Z4 Compact with the same/similar specs to the Z4, it’s a done deal for me. I’m due to upgrade two devices this year – an Xperia ZL and a Z1. Part of me hopes that my current mobile provider offers it subsidized, and part of me wants to be in a position to change providers since my contract is coming to an end (the first time it’s been able to conclude since 2003!).

  • japolis

    no thats 1k

  • Amir

    New z ultra with 6″ 2k display (can be daily driver pocket friendly). SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY SONY! VERY IMPORTANT SONY: try to not exceed the 160mm length for its dimensions.

  • mukul verma

    another great news, found this on softpedia site, z4 compact may be release after sometimes in japan. z4 is released in japan & z4 compact in may.

  • Timel

    No one is original

  • Timel

    Glass on the back? I think they copied the old models of Apple iPhone

  • Eduardo Otero

    Remember Samsung do not copy anything (it’s sarcasm)

  • Eduardo Otero

    Damn!! You’re right!!! Well now to wait what’s coming

  • Timel

    The Galaxy Note series is not included

  • Akand
  • hmmm

    z4 with 2k display and 2930 mah battery will be a big fail!!!better 1080p screen,than 2k with such a smaller battery!!!

  • Akand

    of course 2k is a bullshit for screen size upto 5.5 inches. have you ever seen any small pixel on a FHD display?? I never see until I take the phone too closer to my eyes and my only intention to see the pixel.

  • Akand
  • Akand

    it may seem so but all phones are not of same tier. one company should have their products on the markets of all tiers. E series- Economic class, M series- Middle class, Z series- First/Business class.

  • Timel

    I think Full HD is enough

  • Raj Singh

    You misunderstand what I’m saying.
    They make way too many phones and end up with unsold inventory that they have to write off. They should be more lean on the inventory side.

  • Raj Singh

    I don’t mind that Sony makes phones for different price points, (low, mid and high end) but I do mind that they make too many for each of the various price points.

  • Harrold Pok

    then what is it? Z Ultra was C68XX

  • Pingback: Multiple unreleased Sony Xperias pop up, Z4 Compact and Z4 Ultra suspects included - GadgeTell | TechnologyTell()

  • Amir

    I meant that the E6833 IS the next ultra. i thought you thought the numbers are for the main one. then i misread what you wrote.

  • Great Dude

    In case you don’t know.
    Timel is someone who is known for hating Xperia phones and saying that out loud here in Xperia Blog

  • Great Dude

    Sony Xperia Z Ultra is 6.4 inch.
    2k inside 6.4 inches makes 458.94 ppi ,also remember that Z4 Ultra could be over than 6.4inch

  • Svnjay

    Sony introduced the first Quantum Matrix television screen and brought the tech to mobile.

  • Svnjay
  • Svnjay
  • Great Dude

    On 6.4 inch or bigger display.

    I think it makes a lot of sense, they will have less than 500 ppi, otherwise if they stayed FHD then it will be less than 350 ppi.

    If someone where using a FHD 4.7 inch smartphone and go to use FHD 6.4 inch , then that would be a degradable screen for him.

  • Great Dude

    Let’s wait and see.
    I really hope that the international version will have more than 2k on its sleeves.

  • Svnjay


  • Svnjay

    See ya!

  • Svnjay

    The Z4 Ultra can’t get here any sooner.

  • Chris

    No it is not. You couldn’t be MORE wrong. The K stands for the horizontal resolution. See this wiki image

  • Great Dude

    QHD is called 2k.

    UHD is called 4K

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    i should probably thank you for supporting me on the 2K on Z4 Ultra thread.

  • Reza

    So long and good luck

  • Quick question:

    What’s wrong with the Z3 Compact?

  • Timel

    Bullshit, Apple didn’t copy Sony

    It’s so funny hahahaha what a shame that Sony fanboy like you believed what Samsung claimed LOL!

    Lower class fanboy like you even don’t know what the jony is until Samsung revealed it and used it against Apple so Bitch please!!!!

    Your comments prove that Sony fanboys are always stupid and blind because they have no brain hahaha

  • Svnjay

    So the phone looks exactly like a Sony device while the prototype didn’t and it’s suddenly not a copy? The Jony influenced the iPhone 4 while the Purple influenced the first iPhone.

  • Luis Ramirez

    Hope for an actual ZL2 >> not some crappy ZR2 trying to pretend its the ZL

  • Chris

    No. QHD is 2.5K. Again, read and learn before trying to sound intellectual.

  • Dokuja

    I love mine. :-P The Wifi and Bluetooth range seems kinda poor, but that’s all I can really complain about.

  • Great Dude

    I already know that.

    As I said it is (CALLED ) that.

    However, if you want to discuss technical terms,then both 2k and 4k aren’t really QHD and UHD RESPECTIVELY .
    Technical Terms:
    2K = 2,048 x 1,080
    QHD = 2,560 x 1,440
    4K = 4,096 x 2,160
    UHD = 3,860 x 2,160 & = 4,096 x 2,160 & =7,680 x 4320 (depends on who you ask).

    People and companies call 2K for a QHD screen and 4K for a UHD screen and vice versa.

    If you know how language goes then you must have known that many terms used in English and other languages are far from their actual technical terms or actual meaning.

    That is why QHD is called 2K even though both are technically different .for example LG G3 and Note 4 are called 2K while they actually have 2,560 x 1,440 pixels.

    Do you agree ?

  • azzido

    seems Z4 is using the same washed out screen as Z3 right?
    At least it looks like on pics/ videos. Still waiting for Z5 then.

  • Dustin Pelc

    Hope that really is the next Ultra! Also hope it has Band 12 LTE WITHOUT the need for an update!

  • Akand

    If a screen is bigger than 5.5 inches then I have no complain about QHD/2K rather I would prefer it as the device can carry bigger battery.

  • Akand

    Disconnect your internet connection from the PC, change your pc date back to 2002, design some devices, save the documents and claim that you were not influenced by anything as you did it before as a prototype. You win your claim.

  • Great Dude

    The conversation starts with Z4 Ultra :
    Then someone replied “it must be at least 2k” a replay after replay you disagreed with the 2k concept for less than 5-5 inches ,at that moment I replied to tell you that the Z4 Ultra Should be 6.4 or higher.
    It seems you didn’t notice the first comment about Z4 Ultra and assumed it was any phone,No problem :-)

  • Akand

    Ohh sorry!! I apologise for my unconsciousness.

  • jag

    Then how’s S6 for you?

  • Timel

    Of course the lastest generation of the Super Amoled display that’s in the S6 is the best display so far but its 2K resolution is nonsense and useless

  • jag

    Haha! good! atleast you are not bias.
    I do find that the display in S6 is better but it is too much for the eye and for a smartphone to have.
    I find retina displays are better to the eyes and also htc’s display too.

  • Mathias Cronqvist

    Why are you here?

  • Mathias Cronqvist

    Flag and ignore, friend.
    Flag and ignore.

  • Timel

    LOL, that’s all you can do? Loser

    C’mon It’s only hide my comment
    People will click to open and read my comments anyway

  • Timel

    Sorry but the truth is no one wanna be Sony

    That’s fucking shame even James Bond still doesn’t want to hold the Xperia Z4, Z4 is shittiest flagship phone this year hahahaha

  • azzido

    Hoping for the real international Z4, not “something” introduced in Japan.
    You know, in Japan number 4 is a bad sign, like 13 in rest of world :>

    I am not saying anything hehe.

  • May Czos

    Old processor (it should have SD805), to much plastic, scratches too easily, muted speakers, mediocre camera, poorly calibrated display.
