While we’re still waiting on an exact time, come next week, Sony will be presenting at the 2015 IFA press conference where they will likely unveil their newest flagship smartphone.

Sony is expected to launch an Xperia Z5+ or Ultra model with a 6-inch display though some believe that won’t be coming till later in the year. To tease the upcoming event, Sony has sent out a cryptic tweet and picture which can be found after the jump.
