According to a Technodify report, the Xperia Z5 will also be launched in multiple variants including a Compact and an Ultra.

All the variants would incorporate high-end specs. Technodify also claims that the smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, with 4GB RAM. The jumbo 4500 mAh battery is a major upgrade, compared to the 2930 mAh battery of the Z3+.
