Sony Unveils the New Xperia Z5 Lineup at IFA 2015
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.
The Xperia Z5 Premium is the world's first 4K smartphone.
