Sony Xperia Z5 Premium revealed and detailed with 4K display

This week Sony showed off the Sony Xperia Z5, a smartphone that “contains our best camera created specifically for a smartphone.” This device is made for consumers that wish to take quick shots, working with 0.03-second autofocus. Sony suggests that this is the world’s fastest autofocus on a smartphone. This device also has “better zoom quality” with 5x Clear Image Zoom and a 23-megapixel sensor. This device’s camera also has focus placed on low-light photography and “SteadyShot” intelligent bump-reducing mode.

This device will have frosted glass on the back and an etched frame around its side. The Xperia Z5 will be waterproof as previous models were, and this machine will have a new fingerprint sensor on its side. Under the power button on the right side of this device is a fingerprint sensor that’ll allow more secure entry.

Both machines will have front-facing speakers as well as high-quality output via their upgraded headphone jacks. Both ports will also NOT need plugs to retain waterproofing, as it was with the previous Z smartphone line.

These devices will be released in a variety of colors across the planet over the next few months. Pricing and carrier details will be coming up soon – stay tuned!
