Sony unveils world’s first 4K smartphone Xperia Z5 Premium

Sony has unveiled its latest Xperia Z5 Premium smartphone that is touted to be the world’s first smartphone with a 4K display.


As the IFA 2015 kick starts in Berlin this week, Sony showed off its new lineup of Xperia Z5 smartphones that boast of new features including fingerprint sensor and 23 megapixel cameras.

However, the Xperia Z5 Premium smartphone is the one grabbing the most attention for its 5.5-inch that packs in four times the resolution of Full HD with 806 ppi for ultra sharp viewing experience. A 4K display is sharper and scales up your images or videos to a higher quality.

At the heart of the Xperia Z5 Premium is a 64-bit Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor combined with 3GB of RAM.

It features a 23 megapixel main camera with Hybrid Autofocus and 4K video recording capability. The front snapper is 5 megapixel with full HD video recording feature.

Powered by Android Lollipop, Xperia Z5 Premium comes with 32GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 200GB via microSD card.

The 3430mAh battery is claimed to provide up to 2 days of battery life. The single-SIM phone is 4G enabled and is waterproof and dust tight.

The Xperia Z5 Premium is available in Chrome, Black, and Gold colour options.
