Sony “Lavender” (E55XX) front panel leaks

by XB on 15th May 2015

in Rumours, Xperia C5 Ultra

Sony LavenderTwitter used @upleaks has shown off the alleged front panel of the Sony “Lavender” which is believed to have model number E55XX (E5503, E5563). The handset was previously rumoured to sport a 1080p display and MediaTek MT6752 (64-bit octa-core LTE) chipset.

The picture appears to show a device with large front-facing camera and LED flash too (much like the Xperia C4). Slots on the top and bottom could highlight stereo speakers, much like the Xperia Z2. The bezels also look quite thin, but the image itself looks like it has been edited to a certain extent so it’s difficult to tell for sure. We’ll bring you further details as we have it.

Update: Further specs have been leaked by @upleaks which include the fact it will have a 13MP rear camera using the Sony IMX214 sensor, 2GB RAM, a bigger display size than the Xperia C4 which is 5.5-inches and dual SIM support.

Thanks to all that sent this in!

    Xperia T4 Ultra? Hmmm…

  • Shehab Skull

    GOOD but still looks like z2 :3

  • Shehab Skull

    OMG look at it’s sides from right and left very thin :D but the design of speakers still looks like the same as Z2 .

  • hmmm

    where is xperia z4?where is that super sony camera on their phones??? sony is now out from top 3 camera phones…shame on you sony!!!

  • HAWX

    I love the bottom bezzel which is not that big. MediaTek MT6752 can analize up to 16 megapixels so the rear camera will be equal or less then 16MP. I’m a Z user and I’m looking for a change If I see these qualities:

    -High Res playback with ability to Active Noise cancelation with dedicated headphones (or using the phone’s own microphones so that no need for dedicated headphones :?)
    -Waterproof or not no problem. Also not big bezzel on the bottom side like this one.
    -Enough battery to run the phone for 1 day heavy usage. I just don’t want to carry bulky power banks :)
    -Smooth and fast performance in only pre installed phone applications like E-mai, dialer etc. I don’t play games and If I want device to be good gamer I know there not much options gonna left other than phone with the latest chipsets.
    -Camera performance like Z2 or Z3. These are not the best cameras out there but hey are enough for me I think.
    -Also I want to reach the top of the screen so that I can swipe to notification tray. It is not possible with Z2 or Z3 devices unless you need to tilt the devices towards you quite much .p

    And that is it! There is no phone like that at the moment and I hope Sony would deliver these qualities in the near future. In a midranger or in a flagship :)
    My only problem with Z2 and Z3 is they thave quite big bezzels especially lower ones are preventing the comfortable one handed usage :( (And I know it is really hard to trim these if the phone is waterproof)

  • ghhhb

    I just bought Samsung galaxy s6 edge and i love it… After my z3 died in water….fuck you Sony whit your water resistance…. All flaps was close…. Where water entered????????

  • Andre Lemard

    How long was it in the water? Did the rubber seals on the flaps come off at all? And was there any gaps in the bezel itself?

  • ghhhb

    About 10 sec… I make my Last pic în water with z3… No… Hmm yes i have some ditch…gaps…down of back Phone…The glass is detached from The metal frame…

  • ecko able

    Lollipop for my experia c3 please….?
    When the update came out

  • Snorky112

    if you don’t like don’t buy, I like and I’ll buy, I don’t care if they are top 3 or top 300

  • Svnjay

    Great, now your S6 doesn’t have water resistance or good battery life.

  • Yin Wei Hao

    hey I am from singapore and I have yet to have my lollipop update for my sony xperia c3 as well.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    or Z Ultra II

  • Jiyeon90

    1. Lg g4
    2. S6
    3. IPhone 6

  • Ryan Kumar-jassi

    Why not just get it repaired by Sony warrenty they’ll replace it like they did for my z

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    I think most people just want a the Z5 to be “reinvented.” All the positives Sony has do far, with improvements on the negative. OIS, better camera software, speakers, design, and better UI.

  • quan

    Oh !!! I wan buy which one…-.-

  • imparanoic

    Broken phone yet u still immersed in water?

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    Thats only their display panel not include frame. Hackk!! What the H with that huge front lens. Come on sony, if it made for z flagship i wont buy it. Those huge lens dont suit well with flagship status. Look very cheap and less elegence Even if it come with huge MP for front facing selfie cam.

  • Sadman Khan

    so you knew it had a gap and you immersed it in water and now you’re blaming Sony? -_-

  • mukul verma

    It should be your fault, I had poured water many times on my z1, take a pic under water, & my phone is still gud. I always take care to close all flopflaps before taking phone in water. I think it’s your fault not to tight close flaps.

  • SC

    Would look better if the top bezel was the same size as the bottom one aka symmetry.

  • Jonathan Bratanata

    well it does have on screen buttons

  • mixedfish

    Huge lens doesn’t suit a flagship? Errr sure…

  • Raj Singh

    AKA OmniBalance…

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    I meant the huge circle for the front cam. M4 aqua had 5mp with wide lens but kept with not to obviously huge Circle.

  • Tomislav Mati?

    Service would give you new one but you bought Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge? You could save your money. I don’t understand your philosophy.

  • Tomislav Mati?

    Yes. This is Sony foult. That gap should not be there. If your phone is watherproof to 1.5 m, wather should not get in the phone. If something is waterproof and has some IP certification I’ll behave acording to that IP certification.

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    I can make z3 N2 cuz i know how to take pictures with manual… But impossible to beat the g4

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Being top heavy makes one handed use much more difficult

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Bullshit even my Xperia Z could handle a dop in the pool yesterday when i was filming underwater (used the small app touchblock)… You have done something to your phone that caused water to get in! Learn how to use the device :)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Never heard or seen anything like that on a Sony phone? And yes i do have a lot of friends that have Sony phones and have no issues at all with the IP certification….

  • Lunkz

    Again a MediaTek with no way to unlock the Bootloader…

  • hmmm


  • Tomislav Mati?

    This gap was comon for XPERIA Z. I saw that on XPERIA Z many times. I jad all XPERIA Z phones (Z, Z Ultra, Z1, Z1 Compact, Z2, Z3, Z3 Compact) and personaly didn’t have any issue with IP certification. Only on Z2 back glass cracks after overheating in wather but servise repair gave me new phone.

  • fahim

    Hey bascially the moment I had updated my z3 to the 5.0.2 my sound of my speakers started playing up and idn why it was fine before the update and now after the Update my speakers play up the music sounds distorted when playing out loud but when using headphones they are fine any answer???

    That is a very bad photoshop picture, even i could have done a better one.
    Look at the right side af the screen, at top you see gray right of screen and i bottom there is nothing

  • TechGuyChris

    Well what’s the point in buying another water resistant phone if it isn’t resistant to water? Your better off buying a non resistant one and buying at otter case to protect against water.

  • Anel Mustafoski

    They said “FEW WEEKS” so wait those weeks,cause you know,sony counts different the weeks, a litle longer.

  • Sadman Khan

    If that gap is there, take the phone to a Sony center or contact support or something. Why would you INTENTIONALLY destroy your phone man?

    The Z3 is water resistant, we all know that. He probably didn’t close the flaps properly.

  • Vinícius Azzolin

    It’s more like Xperia Z4, since xperia Z2 has its speakers slots in the frame and not on the glass panel.

  • ghhhb

  • ghhhb

  • ghhhb

    Wtf man… I didnt know

  • Timel

    Just 5 things I want from the next Sony flagship phone

    1) better camera software (greater, smarter and faster camera)
    2) great DAC built-in (for the greatest music experience)
    3) new colors, something like… S6’s Blue Topaz and Emerald Green colors
    4) New UI, paper-like flat style of Material Design doesn’t deserve with Xperia flagship devices at all, Material Design is good but Sony must modify it with transparency / glass-like effects.
    5) focus on useful software features such as Small apps, split-windows and Note (note/edit / cut / past)

  • ghhhb

    True… but o have more powerfull procesor etc. .. nice performance…

  • ghhhb

    I make that test… that test is 0… because my test was pozitive. .. and… I have that gaps….

  • Svnjay

    Okay, that’s unfortunate. Oh well, at least you like your new phone.
