With Sony’s plans for the MWC expo in Barcelona firming up behind the scenes, the tipsters have been at it again, unveiling the unveiled ahead of the big announcement. The latest leak from @Zachbucks on Chinese social media platform, Weibo, is a slide from Sony pushing 5G, 4K HDR screen tech and more, alongside an image of a device.

Sony is building upon a solid foundation when it comes to hardware and software ahead of its MWC 2020 announcement. The Sony Xperia 5 is a great phone with a great camera, especially when it comes to manual video capture, and leaked renders have suggested that we’ll be getting an Xperia 5 Plus soon enough. This looks set to come complete with at least three cameras around the back and a familiar design, as well as a Snapdragon 865 chipset.
