Live pics of Sony ‘Lavender’ front panel leak

by XB on 23rd May 2015

in Rumours, Xperia C5 Ultra

SONY-Lavender-Facade-03We have already seen a leaked picture of what is believed to be the front panel of the rumoured Sony E55XX (codename Lavender). Now some more pictures of the same part have leaked, this time showing some in-the-wild shots.

The part looks identical to that previously seen, showing a large front-facing camera with LED flash. Cutouts on the top/bottom of the panel appear to suggest that the phone may have stereo speakers, the placement being similar to the Xperia Z2 and Z4. Rumoured specifications for the device include a 1080p display, MediaTek MT6752 (64-bit octa-core LTE) chipset, 2GB RAM and a 13MP rear camera using the Sony IMX214 sensor.





Thanks to all that sent this in!

  • Mike Gonzalez

    hmmm and i wonder if that panel could belong the European Z4… cuz no bezels for a mid-ranger and flagship device rocking same bezels for 4 generations already, doesnt sound right to me

  • Niels d. G.

    I can’t imagine ever using an ultra-thin bezel phone, I think I’d accidentally touch the edges of the screen all the time.

  • Timel

    Don’t forget to fix the camera’s software, especially the auto mode!

  • Michelangelo Ceferino

    It will be a good smartphone

  • Gohanks Yan

    i don’t see any difference with xperia c4

  • Anel Mustafoski

    How about lolipop for our xperia z devices

  • Simon Setyadarma

    Only bezel less is the difference.. :/
    Maybe the design is a bit different

  • Zachery Veilleux

    Oit wheres mah lollipop hm

  • Hasan Aleadani

    5 generations actually

  • Brian De Guzman

    Some hints of Sony moving away from their design language, I am already feeling excited to what Z5 would be.

  • Mike Gonzalez

    not really, iPad’s software detects when it’s a tap and when you’re just placing your fingers on the screen because of gripping the phone

  • Niels d. G.

    And since when are we talking Apple?

  • James Neuburger Gaston

    It’s already out ;)

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    I think he wants to ask abt the performance with the latest Lollipop !!!

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    Because u didnt Say anything right already .. From z1 to z2 a big différence in bezels .. And from 2 to 3 There is a difference too with 73% screen to body more than iPhone and s6 ..

  • Bur

    What he is implying is that the technology is here. My surface pro doesn’t detect palms and fingers, only fingertips. So do bezelless phones. It would be stupid if Sony wouldn’t be prepared for that

  • Timel

    Yeah, if they don’t forget to improve camera’s software, especially its auto mode… Sony phones always have the worst auto mode.

  • Ryan Kumar-jassi

    Maybe this is the new xperia that will be announced on 26th may

  • Timel

    you don’t know Detect touch feature, do you?

  • Svnjay

    Unlike Samsung, they don’t have the worst software.

  • Svnjay

    Says the Samsung fanboy?

  • Whatttt?? They were the worst. Unfinished

  • Nodar Sixarulidze

    go troll

  • And you’re? Sony fanboy? Pathetic

  • Nodar Sixarulidze

    front speakers, front camera IMX214

  • Svnjay

    Yeah right. At least Sony’s skin isn’t bloated and laggy like Touchjiz.

  • Butter Fingers

    I may be a little butter fingers but i do sometimes tend to accidentally touch the sides of my Z3.. Not much big of deal though. But it can get annoying at times

  • Nahh. You are still living in the past. They are not laggy anymore, did you use Samsung phone before or you just saying based on opinions in the Internet? Bro come on.

  • Svnjay

    Yes, they’re still laggy and bloated. Touchjiz is the laughing stock of the Android world.

  • Say you already. You make a opinion based on review. Not on your ownself. Quit of this nonsense. Quit commenting because all of this will not live forever anyway.

  • Svnjay

    I have used it multiple times and it really is bad. Also, there is truth in reviews so there’s no need to undermine them.

  • Oh yeah? Which model? Lower end? Mid range? Nahh not review is accurate anyway. There are possible further update can make a phone to another phone. Okay Bro? Bye. Remember this. All things in this world will be gone anyway. So no need to protect a product that doesn’t mean for us in the future. Bye2

    Galaxy S3 Mini, Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Tab S 10.5, Galaxy S6

    I’m not a nihilist.

  • H-R-K

    This is maybe the T4 Ultra…

  • Abdul Ghani

    one of my office guys s6 exploded like got super hot and fat battery and samsung refused to fix it for free

  • Abdul Ghani

    low , mid , high should not matter because sonys e4 c4 m4 z4 all are smooth as butter and samsung mid range crashes like hell low is unusable and high end explodes lol

  • Timel

    What the fuck?
    You’re so annoying

    go stupid bias/blind fanboy

  • Abdul Ghani

    i know how pathetic u are like u will defend samsung like its ur father ive seen many who use samsung even though their mother board goes boom gets damages or screen breaks and warranty guys refuse for everything yet ur kind of people suck their dick no matter what

  • Timel

    I know that I shouldn’t expect anything too much from a bias fanboy like you But..

    Are you tried?
    You look so sick because you’ve gotta defend Sony every time when I said bad things about Sony (even it’s truth)

    Calm down and Take it easy man

  • Svnjay

    It’s funny that you called me a biased fanboy when everyone knows that you’re a Samsung fanboy.

  • Timel

    That’s very funny to me too

    I swear, I’m not a Samsung fanboy, you think yourself.

  • Svnjay

    You worship Samsung and Apple.

  • ramuk

    This is a site for Sony fanboy not for Samsung fanboy. You have your own fan site. Go there and praise samsung phone there.

  • Moonlight

    Btw, what Samsung fans forgot on this page?

  • Timel

    Up to you man, you’re sick!

    I like Samsung S6 edge and Galaxy Note series, And I love Apple products, I love MacBook, I love iPad.

    But “worship” um.. It sounds too exaggerated to me.

  • Moonlight

    I can tell explain u why they r always here…’cause “Samesong” -Samsung issues mainly laggy and shity phones…They can make some truly good things sometimes…like Air Conditioning systems, Microwave, Fridge…But not Multimedia devices…

  • Moonlight

    Then what r u doing here? Go on iShit fan page and praise Apple there…

  • Abdul Ghani

    i dont know why u comment here because all ur comments means u hate sony and talking about s6edge what so good about its features it has been proven that those gimmik features are utter shit and samsung has lost its game because s6 series has 2 major downfall horrible battery life and no micro sd card and after 3-4 software updates later still it has memory leak problem and only 600 mb ram free and gets heat and many users has almost exploded battery note is ok with horrible battery for big phones apple can suck my balls xperia z4 tablet easily beats ipad so there is nothing good about samsung and apple

    now talking about sony they updated 17 devices to 5.0.2 which is bugless and continuing it …….. gives almost 2 days battery on my z2 has micro sd card with app2sd has elegant design and its waterproof doesn’t heats up only thing i hate is its camera software but i dont mind because i use sony qx30

    now u need to cry somewhere else do on phone arena or suck samsungs and apples dick

  • Timel


  • Svnjay

    Every last one of your comments are about how much you hate Sony and how good Samsung and Apple are. I don’t know why you come to a Sony fansite to trash them.

  • Timel

    Sony flagship phones suck, I don’t like the way Sony has done with their flagship smartphones

    Sony products such as alpha NEX, Bravia TV, PlayStation and Walkman they’re very great, I never ever trash them.

  • jayjay

    A tweet from Sony Xperia

  • Bur

    But the Z3 doesn’t have this particular feature for sides. Z3 has side bezels so they don’t bother making the software for bezelless design. But yea it’s true that regular touchscreens are affected by that

  • Snorky112

    so what ?

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    So what?? look at the device, seems lyk a new one…..

  • Svnjay

    It’s the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.

    Though i love sony mobiles, I’ll accept the fact of Muhammad!
    I was just fiddling with my friend’s S5 and it was smooth with no visible lags and significantly faster than my ZR :)
    Also i tried this A3, a lower mid range phone and it too was pretty smooth.

  • xperiaDROID

    And you must be using a Blackberry device right? Judging from the single back button on the bottom left corner? What Blackberry device are you using?

  • Timothy Crayon

    THE ANIMAL, THE ANIMAL, THE ANIMAL …TIMEL…..go back home, your sucksung playground, suck the tiny south korean dickie…..suit you…

  • jayjay

    That’s right, rocking a Z10. My Z2’s been in the service center for a month.

  • jxPerience

    its z3 tab compact

  • jxPerience

    another sony xperia device :( and after sometime support for updates will take time as they need to make it compatible with different models. why not focus on Z series??? forget the low-mid devices leave it to chinese brands, samsung, LG okay

  • Re

    Hi guys… I have a problem with my xperia l …When I place my phone to silent mode, the phone automatically returns to the previous mode after a few hours. Where is the problem? Can you help me? (android version is 4.2.2)

  • Timel

    I know that I shouldn’t expect anything too much from a bias fanboy like you But.. Are you tried? You look so sick because you’ve gotta defend Sony every time when I said bad things about Sony (even it’s truth)

    And Sorry, Android tablets suck, even xperia tablet

    s/w and applications for iPad are much better that worthless shit android tablets, iPad is the best tablet no any Android tablet can compares.

  • Timel

    Apple has a cool software
    you don’t know the detect touch feature, do you?

    User experience is the most important thing and It must be so stupid if Sony knows how to make the hardware but don’t learn about software.

  • WendyNCarlson
  • Tomislav Mati?

    Did any of you use Samsung Galaxy S5 on Android 5? I did and it was…. I compared it with Sony XPERIA Z3 on Android 5 and Galaxy S5 is 2x slower that XPERIA Z3. Galaxy S5 on Android 5 is even 2x slower than Android 4.4 on it.
    Now about super Galaxy S6 Edge. My friend has one and touch is all scratched after a month of use. For that price you expect the best but it is not.
    I love iPhone. I had all iPhones. Now I have iPhone 6 and I am disappointed with it. It is bend in left upper corner. It bends in my pocket. iPhone 5 had problems with screen, iPhone 4 with signal. So the best phone is not the best.
    I had all Sony flagships. I had problem only with XPERIA Z2. Back glass cracked because of overheating. They gave me another one but it was heating and signal was poor. With other Sony phones I didn’t have any problems. So this all is the reason I have to trust Sony and even I love iPhone and is my number one phone I will always go back to Sony saying: Sony phones are the best.

  • Peter

    Unlike Samsung, they have their own design :)

  • way too round way too round z3+ will be my last sony if this is their new design language

  • IlGrinta17

    I would choose a Z4 Tablet, way better than a Crapple tablet and its stupid easy OS without any doubts. I’m a normal person who doesn’t have anything Sony.

  • Abdul Ghani

    lol timel it clearly looks like u havent used sonys z2 z3 line up to see 2 days battery life my experience 5+ hrs screen time in days 11 hrs

    android tablet always(2014) had better experience since almost all apps now support for a TABLET so is xperia tablet less price more space more ram better processor better screen better battery life better durability expandable storage and ( can share stuff with bluetooth )

    normal people lol that so stupid people go for fame and for famous brand name not for the best product they dont have time to research btw ive seen in stores xperia tablet z2 was sold out but not ipad

    anyway u can cry somewhere else u are clearly a apple fanboy because its clearly u mom was raped by sony and apple adopted u and ur angry rest of the family is samsung

  • Naail Zahid

    You have to admit, this timel guy is a master troll, as he always manages to get onto xperia blog and rile up hatred against him. Xperiablog should ban his sorry ass, but at the same time, his stupidity brings a lot of LOL moments :P

  • Abdul Ghani

    he(@disqus_7vrIpJxYcD:disqus is just having family issues

  • Naail Zahid

    You mean he has a hard time choosing between his apple family and samsung family?
    I guess a divorce is never easy on the timels of the world…

  • Don’t forget he said everything he holds against Sony is “truth”.
    That’s quite childish to say that of an opinion, which are never right nor wrong.

  • shawn

    desn’t matter how big camera sony put, pics like shit. threw my z2 and bought mi4i, no match at all.

  • tony75

    ??????? xperiablog====== —->SEE INFO< <<<< >

  • Aleky2002

    Nobody can achieve 2 days, except if you use your phone just for calls.
    But then couldn’t you just buy a shitty 20€/£/$ phone?
    On my Z1C, I get four hours of screentime if I’m lucky.
    That’s nowhere near two days.

  • Snorky112

    Z3 tablet compact

  • Aleky2002

    “lower midrange”
    Well, it’s priced like the Z1 Compact

  • Ritwij

    Nice! Even my two daily drivers are Xperia Z2 and BlackBerry Z10 :D

  • Mike Gonzalez

    my point is Sony could use a similar trick if they’re trying to get rid of bezels but dont want un-wanted taps on the sides of the display

  • Naail Zahid

    ironic part is that other phones with sony sensors take much better pics than sony themselves. SMH…

  • Nonsense. Global edition of C4.

  • We have in our Polish tech sites some WP fanboy who is incredibly annoying.

  • U already have Z12 :D

  • Shravan SP

    Yeah.. Samsung is bad at pricing their mid end phones..
    But you have to know that Z1C released in dec2013.. When it released it was double the price as of now.. And A3 is a newer mobile..
    New mobiles are always priced high.. Later they come down..
    Eg. Galaxy S4 and Xperia Z1 were released at a price of 41k and 46k INR respectively but now, tbe gs4 is 16k and Z1 is 25k in India..

  • Shravan SP

    It’s not a C series phone..
    C4 just got announced..
    Maybe a new Z4 that’s going to be announced in hong Kong or india in 26th may
    Or a t4..

  • Shravan SP

    You’re one rich human!

  • Naail Zahid

    Maybe timel’s brother troll?

    Trust me, he is not a apple fan. He is using apple as a diversion to make people look away from the fact that he is a samsung’s paid bitch. He is papasmurf from He is a well known Sony hater. I think we should all just flag his comment.

  • Timel

    I hate Sony phones, I don’t like the way Sony’ve done with their flagship smartphones , Sony flagship smartphones are always worse than competitors in some ways, for example its camera which is a big deal for many people.

    Sony Xperia is the only product line from Sony that I don’t like, but I love Sony alpha NEX, Bravia TV, PlayStation and Walkman, I never ever trash them.

  • Timel

    That’s so funny, keep doing I really love your story, it sounds like…. a detective fiction, I’m so excited!

  • Timel

    Very funny, I love your story, it sounds like I’m a main character of your detective fiction , I’m so excited to hear more of this!

  • Tomislav Mati?

    @Timel because there is no Replay
    And why is Samsung software so good? Galaxy S5 and S4 Android 5 sucks big and they didn’t fix it. And lets see cheap Samsung mobiles. Software is shit again.
    Now lets see Sony Android 5 on Z series. It is working very good. Yes it had some bugs but it is fixed now. Other bugs will be fixed in upcoming Android 5.1.1. So Sony is always working and fixing things. Only thing that needs working is Superior Auto. It is not good. But in Manual mode pictures can be very good if you know how to set it.
    Now move to cheap Sony mobile phones. Even XPERIA E4 with MediaTek works good. No lags. Any Samsung in that price range is working like that?
    So learn before posting something.
    And where is Replay for Timel?

  • Timel

    My above comment is the fact, not just someone’s opinion, it’s the fact, Sony flagship phones always have the worst auto mode when compare to competitors like Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S and Note series, Sony flagship phones re auto mode also worst than cheap chinese phones like Xiaomi and Meizu. This is the truth and it depends on you guys to admit it or not.

  • jmaxim917

    As much as you are hated here I think you are absolutely correct about battery life and camera of the Xperia phone. I’m using the Z2 and I’m terribly disappointed with the camera. Battery life is Ok but it’s not what Sony makes it out to be.

  • BarbaraMJoubert

    ??? $73.. per-hr @mi35//



  • Timel

    All I want to say is Sony should focus on software as much as hardware, Sony must change, this era software is very important and Sony can’t be only hardware maker anymore

    If Sony want to make bezel-less phone then they must know how they can get the benefit from Bezel-less, if Sony have no idea, please look at chinese brand like ZTE, look What ZTE did with Nubia Z9, it looks pretty cool.

  • Timel

    Ops! There’s still an unbiased Xperia fanboy here (surprised me)


  • That “fact” might only apply to you then. I’m having 0 problems about that.

    EDIT: Also, what the hell are you doing here if you love Samsung? This is a website about SONY, NOT Samsung. Get your hate somewhere else.

  • Aleky2002

    Z1C was February 2014 and was 100€ more than it is now here in Italy
