Sony hints of new gold-coloured Xperia model to launch next week

by XB on 31st July 2015

in Rumours, Xperia M5

New Xperia ColourSony Mobile has released another teaser ahead of next week’s new device reveal on Monday 3 August 2015. This time Sony has used the caption “something golden is sparkling on the horizon,” which strongly hints of a new gold-coloured Xperia device. In fact, yesterday’s picture tease has a gold-tint and we unearthed another photo related to this teaser campaign, showing the handset will be water-resistant as well as the new gold colour. Only a few days to see what Sony has up its sleeve.

  • krlkrstfffrcmlgnfrnndz

  • PoweredBySony

    BraceYourself SD810 is coming

  • Alvin

    well my copper z3 looks like gold though, especially in direct sunlight

  • Alvin

    it looks promising now. unlike that z3 to z3+ or z2 to z3 or even z2 to z3+ joke

  • Alvin

    it looks just the same, but with refinements in camera and design materials or things, but same design language, with adding gold colour as replacement to beloved copper. hope they’ll launch a great blue colour.

  • Alvin

    i thought it will be c5 ultra a day ago, but until i see this teaser. Nope, this is a z5, because with mid range devices, they’ll not post teasers or anything like this before

  • XperiaBlog

    Oh yes, still going strong…

  • Bashir Salleh

    Gold Xperia Theme LOL!

  • Alvin

    LOL YEAH gold xperia theme with water particles as seen above

  • Alvin

    even xperiablog mod can’t resist on loving that beautiful cutie that the mod post the phone here

    oh my god, that is ravishing.

  • Alvin

    c5, not m5-_-

  • XperiaBlog

    We can’t hide the fact that the Xperia ray is still probably one of our all time Xperia favourites! :)

  • they did with T2 Ultra if i’m not mistaken

  • the truth

    c5 isnt waterproof

  • Sadman Khan

    What are the odds that it’s gonna be C5 Ultra or those S60 S70 phones?

  • Alvin

    it’s z5 then

  • blurb8

    Please let there be a Z5 compact soon, please sony!

  • Hamed Azizi

    I’ve been waiting for a new Z Ultra. Yesterday My Z Ultra accidentally fell and broke and I bought a Copper Z3+. It’s really small and not pleasant to use for me. But compared to Z Ultra, it’s really progressed. Design is perfect. I wish Sony release a new Ultra version of Z3+/Z4.

  • Sadman Khan


  • Alvin

    especially its design and camera :)

  • mugglearchitect

    wow! hehe

  • Alvin

    oh yes it is, but their ambition never got big like this one. there is already 2+ teasers online.

  • Nodar Sixarulidze

    new device reveal on Monday 3 August 2015

  • Alvin

    no, those fanboys always tend to new things and very obsessed with those. it’s still z5 i think

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    There won’t be z5. Z3+ has been announced just yet !!!

  • Alvin

    especially this amazing tv commercial….that was also uploaded by you!!!!

    20:22 Xperia Ray commercial, that commercial is perfect with perfect song.

  • Sadman Khan

    How do you know?

  • Abdul Ghani

    sony a phone in august then another in September

  • Sadman Khan

    Z5 with 810 oh god no

  • Abdul Ghani

    its true xperia ray was my all time fav phone and it took better pictures than z2

  • mohsen

    that is selfi, and 5.5 inch without side margins, waterproof:
    then it may be C5, Z4 ultra, M5
    c series is not waterproof

  • xperiaDROID

    And what if it’s using a Mediatek chipset? Will you spend us all here a Xperia C5 Ultra?

    Then I’ll brace myself.

  • Snorky112

    oh yes! SD810 is best CPU, they always say it heats and stuff, but when people test it it doesnt Heat more than other phones lol >< it's just because "they say that its overheating" that people notice it… I've seen tests and it doesnt heat so much in the end.. too much talking for nothing

  • mohsen

    M5 5 inch???? 3GB ram????? then that is flagship and not mid-range

  • xperiaDROID

    He’s the same leakster that leaked the Z4/Z3+ if I’m not wrong.

    But 21MP camera with new sensor is too good to be true for the M series.

  • Amel_Marie

    Sony can take pictures in split second, how about the quality?

  • amit kumar anand

    Z ultra update in 5.1.1 in wchich date

  • Amel_Marie

    All cpus are overheated. But its kinda sad that sony is the only phone I see can be overheated when we take so many photos. I love xperias. The designs are sexy.

  • Nodar Sixarulidze


  • Aiden Pearce

    how about something like this in the concept?

  • Amel_Marie

    Maybe Sony has made a new standard to compete the other phones like 3GB for midrangers and 4GB for flagships.

  • echomrg

    no need for transparency, nor the dark rectangles below the wifi, bluetooth and notification icons.

  • Nodar Sixarulidze


  • Sadman Khan

    Whoa ._.

  • Zidhin Mohd

    Monthly flagship scheme

  • XperiaBlog

    Lol, memories…

  • Aiden Pearce

    those are just for distinguish that its a pull down menu, i am sure they can do better and transparency is what most of the users is shouting since it debuted in Whats new app and imho it looks good

  • Kotatsu

    What’s your point when posting that ss?
    That is e5663 which has 4.6″ display.
    So C5 and M5 are out of the question.

    But i believe this “03.08.2015” will be the C5.

  • Alvin

    sweet memories :D:)

    please upload more throwback reviews!!!

  • Nodar Sixarulidze

    I found another site that could help ID some models.

    PM-086x – C4 family

    real dimensions 150.3 x 77.4 x 7.9, from the FCC 77.2 x 149.9cm, diagonal of 164.5mm (6.47 inches), device is 5.5in screen, so diagonal probably is the entire device at 164.5mm.

    So this PY7-PM-089x device, 164.19 x 79.5, diagonal of 178.33, so bigger than than the C4 at 5.5 inches, so perhaps we are looking at 2 possible devices:

    C5 ultra (6 inch screen)

    it is possible it is the C5 ultra since we know it has super thing bezels and fitting a 6 inch screen into a smaller size is doable.

    Next up:

    PY7-PM0873 – is this codenamed Holly? and found this via the FCC

    Holly-Gina-APAC-DS__E5663__SAR-FCC-DoC-leaflet—America_print_20150703-094919, also this


    Confidential_[Confidential]Holly_APAC DS_MTK_MB_20150610b

    , the E56xx is running a mediatek X10. So is this Holly (E56xx) the M5 and M5 Dual
    Info from here:

  • Nodar Sixarulidze

    PM089X is Xperia C5 ultra aka E55XX
    Build Version:29.0.B.0.76
    Battery Capacity =2930mAh(LIS1579ERPC)

    PM087x is Xperia M5 aka E56XX
    Build version:30.0.A.0.20
    Battery Capacity = ???( AGPB016,never heard before)

  • Nodar Sixarulidze

    eems like e5663 isnt a version of z5 compact , we forgot to point that gfxbench can mislead with display size.

    even c4 have 4,6 inch display @ gfxbench.they also put together c4 and c5 ultra.

  • Nodar Sixarulidze

    maybe, 4GB for Z5

  • echomrg

    transparency looks good but makes things more difficult to read, especially with low contrast text like the one used for the “off” state of the settings.
    and for the pull down menu the small triangle is enough to distinguish them from on/off switches (it’s already there on the new 5.1.1 firmware and it works fine).

    transparency might get better with a little work (although i don’t know what google’s material guidelines say about it) but the dark rectangles aren’t really necessary.

  • PoweredBySony

    Sure i will. Even 2 Xperia C5 Ultra for you.

  • Zidhin Mohd

    c series has never been waterproof…soo chaances for a c series are less right?

  • nick sweden

    looks nice, all i wanted is a 4 row line , so the windows becomes a slightly smaller :)

  • Alfino Setya

    I don’t care if it will going to be Xperia C5 Ultra or M5 Aqua, I just care about Xperia Z5 Ultra :3

    Same here

  • Thariq Mohammed

    Update comes for my xperia z2 a few seconds ago.
    While click

  • Arda Akca

    Sony please release the goddamn Z5 Ultra already? Do we have to wait forever?

    I had to do this….

  • Alfino Setya

    It has been a long time since Sony released Xperia Z Ultra but they didn’t announce any Xperia Z Ultra sucessor till now, Sony must be dumb enough to ditch Z Ultra series :( I hope they will announce Xperia Z5 Ultra in near future :3

  • Alfino Setya

    Oh I got it so S70+ will going to be Xperia Z5 Ultra, S70 will going to be Xperia Z5, S60 will going to be Xperia Z5 Compact and S50 will going to be Xperia M5. It just my early prediction, it could change later :)

  • Arda Akca

    It was dumb to release a 6.44 inch flagship back then. But nowadays 6~6.44 with good dimensioning will be a killer.

  • Aravindan

    I think this is the upcoming Xperia T4 Ultra (E5706). Though the specs leaked earlier indicated a 16 mp sensor (IMX 240 or 234), we can’t be entirely sure. Let’s just hope we get PDAF, laser autofocus, ois and a dual tone flash.

  • mohsen

    that is xperia Z4 compact (flagship)

  • Shubham Mutreja

    This phone actually had one of the best design!!!

  • Nodar Sixarulidze

    No Z4 Compact and No Z6 Compact, Z5 Compact is E58XX, Z5 is E66XX, Z5 Ultra is E68XX

  • Timel

    Come on Sony fan boyses, you could do better. It can’t be a major product launch ‘just like that’. For bigger launches press invites are sent well in advance. The launch teasers are limited to Twitter only so that doesn’t mean a lot. Still, Sony being Sony might do so for the following possibilities
    1) Launch C5: Now that it has been outed with a bezel less display courtesy Brazilian police, they are maybe rushing the launch.
    2) Launch some ‘Ultra’: With Note 5 just around the horizon, it’s the best time to launch a phablet.

    Either way, it doesn’t point to anything big.

  • H-R-K

    I don’t understand what’s Sony is trying to do?
