Holy sweet mother of screen resolutions, what is going on? Today, Sony has unveiled their Sony Xperia Z5 Premium that has the first ever 4K resolution. Not just that, the camera has been improved along with the entire phone. Let’s take a look at this new powerhouse.
This beast of a screen is coming in at 3,840 x 2,160 resolution that comes out to a whopping 806 pixels per inch. It’s a Triluminos IPS panel that’s going to provide one hell of a crisp video clip from YouTube or any other video that’s been shot in 4K.
Moving on to the camera that’s been updated, the Z5 Premium has a 23 megapixel rear facing camera. The Sony Xperia Z5 Compact and Xperia Z5 also come with the same camera. There’s a new 1/2.3″ Exmor RS sensor that’s is going with the Sony G Lens with f/2.0 aperture. I’m not done just yet. There’s more power behind this camera than just that. The phone will also shoot videos in 4K with an improved Intelligent Active Mode and SteadyShot tech. The ISO will get up to 3,200 max for videos and 12,800 max for photos.
Let’s talk about focus quickly. Focusing will be ready in 0.03 seconds, so you’ll never miss that perfect shot whether it’s for an action shot or just a normal family photo. Digital zoom goes out to 5x and gives a minimum loss in quality.
The front facing camera is 5 megapixels with an Exmor R sensor. You’ll also be able to get more people in the photo thanks to a 25mm wide angle lens. Videos will be recorded in 1080p.
The devices build is stainless steel and will come in black, gold, or a chrome finish. It’s also IP65/68 rated, so you know it’s dust and water resistant. Don’t forget to make sure the caps are sealed tightly. The power/standby button comes with a fingerprint scanner integrated and will also support online payments.
You’ve gotten some of the specs, but not all so the remaining are: Snapdragon 810 (64-bit), 3GB RAM, 32GB on board storage, a microSD card slot supporting up to 200GB, and quick charge support.
There will be a global launch date some time in November and pricing will be announced closer to the day it’s released.
