Leaked image shows the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact Comes With Fingerprint Scanner

A new picture of the upcoming Sony Xperia Z series flagship devices, expected to be the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact, has leaked. In that shot, both phones were turned on and showing the instructions for training their respective fingerprint sensors. Thus, we found out that these are going to be the first Xperia smartphones to come with such scanners. These will be embedded inside the handsets' power buttons. And now we're basically getting a better look at those buttons.

You can more clearly note the fingerprint scanner on the right side of the phone and the lower-placed volume rockers. 

It's just that now they'll also serve authentication purposes through those embedded fingerprint scanners. While placing a fingerprint sensor on the front of a phone (embedded in the Home button) or on its back (under the camera) have pretty much become the norm, Sony is going a different way with the Z5 duo.

The source says that both handsets are naked and not in any kind of bumper or case. The pictures match what we have seen of both devices, with a continuation of the OmniBalance design language. We do question the placement of the volume rocker, especially on the Compact model, as we imagine it would be tricky to easily access with one hand. Whilst no leaks of the larger Z5 (Ultra?) model have emerged, it will also sport a very similar design with similarly placed volume buttons. 

Obviously don't forget that these images may not be the real deal. That said, the two Z5 devices are probably going to get official at an event on September 2, so the fact that they're leaking now isn't at all surprising.
