"Compact is said to sport a 4-inch 720p panel"???
I believe it would be 4.6 inches.
With all the heating issues how could Sony have selected 810 again !!!
snapdragon 810 is not bad at all i think, even exyno 7 overheats badly also

Burn!!!!!!!....LiterallyThe Z5 running a Snapdragon 810 is likley to have the same issues (more like fatal flaws really) that the Z3+ had.
The Z5c with a 720p disply might just get away with it (though the camera seems to be the real culprit as far as straining the Soc is concerned in Sony devices).
In both cases it may be that Sony has opted for the latest version of the 810, clocked it at a max of 1.8Ghz (like in the Oneplus Two which apparantly has the thermal issues under control). This along with further improvements / optimisation to the camera software may allow both devices to function fine with the 810.
If the rumours are true regarding the 'Premium' version and its ridiculous 4k screen, then I'm affraid no amount of under clocking or software optimisation may be enough, this thing will most likley literally cook itself.

However, SD810 for the 4K is still a no go for me. Unless, they have optimized (down clocked?) it somehow. 4K is too many pixels to draw for the 810 and the reviews have been not so good as we all know.
I love my Z3C with 720P by the way, it simply flies with that display. Not into pixel race yet.

The flash might be the same size, but not necessarily the same brightness. Glass back isn't a bad thing, but from this leak, seems only the Z5 premium has a glass back. Z5 and Z5C have something else. And Snapdragon 810, I hope they managed to do something about it. I'm wondering how 810 is going to drive a 4K display wihtout melting the phone. And 808 can't handle QHD properly, let alone 4K. Intel is announcing new mobile chips, including Intel Xeon mobile, today. Perhaps the Z5 premium has that?
Cyr4x, 02 Sep 20154 inches? O rly? Shouldn't it be 5 or 4,7?Yeah I highly doubt it'll be 4 inches. I think 4.6 or 4.7 is most likley.
Not impressed. Especially with SD810, that same tiny flash & the glass back. Was considering the Z5C otherwise. Currently having Z3C with not that great camera quality + cracked back glass. Can consider the iPhone 6S now... I love Xperia for their android skin though.
Why not 4K for the ultra, uhd for Z and 1920x1080 for the compact?? Would make a much nicer group.
