IFA 2015: Sony launches the Xperia Z5, Z5 Compact and Z5 Premium smartphones

Sony has launched a trio of new smartphones at IFA in Berlin just a few moments ago. Named the Xperia Z5, the Xperia Z5 Compact and the Xperia Z5 Premium, these new phones represent an entire new generation with several breakthroughs in technology.

In terms of size, the flagship Xperia Z5 is a 5.2 inch phone with a 1080p Full HD display, accompanied by a smaller 4.5-inch Xperia Z5 Compact and a larger 5.5-inch Xperia Z5 Premium.

The Xperia Z5 Premium is incidentally the world's first smartphone to feature a 4k 2160p Ultra HD display.

Sony has laid special stress to camera technology in the new Xperia phones. The company says that the Xperia Z5 "contains the worlds fastest autofocus in a Smartphone. 0.03 Seconds." Which is actually next to nothing. The camera is a 23MP behemoth with a 5x clear zoom and the SteadyShot feature will make you say goodbye to shaky videos for good.

The new technology negates the concept of waiting for your camera to find its focus completely. Once you find your target, you just need to take out the Z5 from your pocket and press click. It's actually that fast!

In terms of apprarance, the Xperia Z5 features a metal body with frosted glass back and is completely waterproof.

Apart from the revolutionary camera and display, both the Z5 and the Z5 Compact phones also sport a fingerprint sensor for easy unlocking, as well as a 64-bit architecture supported by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 810 processor.

In terms of battery usage, Sony says all three devices can last upto two days of regular usage. Quick battery charging features like the Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 2.0 will help you gain 5.5 hours worth battery life with just ten minutes of charging.

The Xperia Z5 will come in subtle Gold, emerald green, graphite black and white colour options, while the Compact variant will sell in yellow, coral, black and white colour options. The Xperia Z5 Premium will also be available in gold, chrome and black colours.
