By now, you should have a pretty good idea of what Sony's next smartphones will look like, after photos leaked last week allegedly showed three variants of Sony's Xperia Z5 — the standard Z5, the Z5 Compact, and the Z5 Premium. But just in case you weren't sure, a new video has appeared online that appears to show the three phones in action. In an interview with a French journalist, Sony Mobile Communications' director of marketing, Olivier Terme, uses handsets that he identifies as Z5 models, describing features that last week's leaks indicated the smartphones would have.

The interview appears to confirm that all three Z5 phones will all feature a 23-megapixel camera, fingerprint sensors on the side, and a dust- and water-proof design. Where they will vary will be in their displays — as befitting its smaller size, the Z5 Compact will have a 4.6-inch, 720p screen, while the standard Z5 will have a 5.2-inch 1080p display. The larger Z5 Premium looks to have a 5.5-inch screen and will boast a resolution of 3840 x 2160, a fact that Terme says makes the biggest Xperia Z5 the first 4K smartphone.

This latest Z5 information comes just a few days before the IFA 2015 trade show begins in Berlin. Expect a more official look at Sony's new handsets at the event — Europe's largest electronics trade show — and full coverage from The Verge on the show floor.
