As expected, Sony has just taken the curtains off three new Xperia Z5 devices – the flagship Xperia Z5, its smaller sibling the Xperia Z5 Compact, and the Xperia Z5 Premium, the world’s first smartphone that comes with a 4K display.
All three Xperia Z5 smartphone features Sony’s brand new large 1/2.3 Exmor RS for mobile 23MP sensor and F2.0 G Lens, a completely re-imagined smartphone camera since the Xperia Z1. If you think that the 0.25-seconds focus on the Xperia M5 is impressive, the Xperia Z5 is even better, with a 0.03 seconds autofocus speed, the world’s fastest autofocus in a smartphone. There is also an clear image zoom that lets you get 5x zoom without losing quality. For videos, there is an improved SteadyShot on board for you to capture action smoothly.
Design wise, the Xperia Z5 still looks similar with a rectangular design and metal frame, but it now has a frosted glass back, so it “looks as good as it performs”. Just as the rumours says, the device now features a fingerprint sensor, which is located on the redesigned power button located on the side of the device.
As for the specifications, Sony has of course, packed the best it could into all three devices. The Xperia Z5 features a 5.2” Full HD Triluminos display for Mobile, while the Xperia Z5 compact comes with a 4.6” HD Triluminos display for Mobile. The Xperia Z5 Premium on the other hand has a 5.5” 4K display with a pixel density of a whopping 806ppi.
All three devices are powered by the Snapdragon 810 processor, the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Premium have 3GB of RAM, and the Xperia Z5 Compact has 2GB of RAM. They all have 32GB of internal storage, which supports microSD cards of up to 200GB.
