Sony Un­veils the New Xpe­ria Z5 Lineup at IFA 2015

HWM (Malaysia) - - TELEPORT -

Last month was IFA 2015, and as al­ways, the who's who in the tech world was there. Sony was one of the ex­hibitors that had a lot to show­case that week, and the most im­por­tant an­nounce­ment made was the un­veil­ing of the brand new Xpe­ria Z5 line of smart­phones.

The Xpe­ria Z5 se­ries will com­prise not two, but three new smart­phones: the Xpe­ria Z5 Com­pact, the Xpe­ria Z5, and the Xpe­ria Z5 Pre­mium. In an ef­fort to stan­dard­ize its phones across the board, all three mod­els will bear the same Snap­dragon 810 64-bit pro­ces­sor, as well as the com­pany's new 23MP Ex­mor RS mo­bile sen­sor. They will also make use of its new hy­brid aut­o­fo­cus tech­nol­ogy, which Sony said will al­low the phone's cam­era to lock a sub­ject in fo­cus in a frac­tion of a sec­ond.

Much like its (not that much older) coun­ter­parts, the Xpe­ria Z5 Com­pact is the small­est model of the Xpe­ria Z5 smart­phone range with a 4.6-inch HD dis­play. The phone it­self will carry 2GB of RAM, as op­posed to the 3GB of RAM in the Xpe­ria Z5 and Xpe­ria Z5 Pre­mium.

The Xpe­ria Z5 is, as al­ways, the flag­ship model. It will sport a 5.3-inch Full HD dis­play, 3GB RAM, and the com­pany's Hi-Res Au­dio tech­nol­ogy, which can also be found in the Walk­man de­vices. Last but not least is the Xpe­ria Z5 Pre­mium, which is both the com­pany's and the world's first smart­phone with a 4K dis­play fit­ted on a 5.5-inch dis­play.

The Xpe­ria Z5 Com­pact and Xpe­ria Z5 are ex­pected to launch within this month, while the Xpe­ria Z5 Pre­mium is slated for a Novem­ber 2015 launch.
