Sony presents new flagship smartphones
Sony has presented three new flagship smartphones at IFA 2015 in Berlin and the devices are the Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact and Xperia Z5 Premium that we talked about a few days ago. All these smartphones will represent Sony in the high-end market segment for the time being.
An interesting part is that the three handsets share most of the tech specs – they all come in the same clean metal unibody chassis and there are three buttons on the right side – a camera shutter, a volume rocker and a power button with a built-in fingerprint reader. All three models are also water-proof since they meet all IP65/68 requirements.
The Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact and Xperia Z5 Premium share a lot of the tech specs – the devices come with Snapdragon 810 processors, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, an 8 MP front camera and a 1/2.3-inch Exmor RS-based 23 MP rear camera. The differences lie in the battery size, RAM amount, display size and the display resolution. The Xperia Z5 comes with a 5.2-inch display at Full HD resolution, 3 GB of RAM and a 2900 mAh battery. The Xperia Z5 Compact has a 4.7-inch display at 720p resolution, 2 GB of RAM and a 2700 mAh battery. The Xperia Z5 Premium steals the show, though – this is the smartphone with the world’s first 5.5-inch 4K display with the impressive pixel density of 806 ppi. The Xperia Z5 Premium has 3 GB of RAM and a 3430 mAh battery.
The new Z5 lineup runs Android 5.1 Lollipop but they will soon be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The Z5 and Z5 Compact will be in stores in October, while the Z5 Premium will become available only in November.
