Sony Xperia Z6

Sony has lifted the curtains off its much-awaited Xperia Z5 lineup. We now know that the teaser shared by the Japanese company on its Twitter account, as predicted, referred to the latest Z5 series possessing a mean 23MP camera.

The Xperia Z5 family includes the Xperia Z5, the Xperia Z5 Compact and the Xperia Z5 Premium.

As the name suggests, the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is the high-end device from the lot and possibly a feather in Sony’s cap, since the phone is launched with a 5.5-inch display boasting 4K resolution. What’s more? the screen sports a PPI of 806, ensuring that the visuals on the device don’t fail to capture anyone’s attention. This happens to be the first smartphone to launch with 4K resolution and chances are fans can’t wait to get a look themselves.

Embedded in a 154.4mm x 75.8mm x 7.8mm chassis is a 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 on the Premium device. There is a 3GB RAM onboard and 32GB of internal storage, MicroSD for external memory expansion of up to 200GB and will be fuelled by a mean 3430 mAh battery, which according to the company should last 2 days.

The 23MP camera with Exmor RS sensor features a faster autofocus and 4K video capturing capabilities. The device can also up the ante on any third-party video to 4K.

The Xperia Z5 and the Xperia Compact come with a 5.2-inch display and a 4.6-inch screen, respectively. Each device possesses the similar 23MP camera and battery fueling the device for up to 2-days. Both the smartphones come dipped in a variety of colors.

The lineup has the Xperia Omnibalance design intact and features a finger-print reader on the side. As noted by The Australian, this will ensure securely unlocking the phone in a single move.

While there is no word on the pricing from the company, the Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact will be released in October and the Z5 Premium will begin retailing in November. As noted by Android Authority, given the 4K specs on the Premium, it can be expected to come with a hefty price tag.
