At IFa 2019, Sony today announced Xperia 5, a new addition to its flagship series. The new Xperia 5 packs most of the features of Xperia 1 into a sleek and more compact design. Instead of the 4K display found on Xperia 1, Sony has included a 6.1-inch Full HD+ (2,520 x 1,080 pixels) OLED HDR display with a 21:9 aspect ratio for CinemaWide experience. The Xperia 5 follows the same design language as Xperia 1, but it is 14 grams lighter than Xperia 1.
Xperia 5 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB RAM and 128 GB storage. Similar to the Xperia 1, the Xperia 5 comes with a triple camera (26mm (F1.6) versatile lens, 52mm (F2.4) telescopic lens, and 16mm (F2.4) and super-wide lens (35mm conversion)) featuring OIS. Sony has also included autofocus algorithms from Sony’s Alpha interchangeable lens camera. With these algorithms, the Xperia 5 can keep focus on a human eye.
The “X1 for mobile” tech can convert regular content to HDR quality using HDR Remastering technologies. Also, the “Game enhancer” features improved recording features. Sony has also included a new feature called “Smart connectivity,” it analyses Wi-Fi signals and predict near-future connectivity issues. Using this tech, Xperia 5 will automatically switch to LTE when it predicts any compromise in Wi-Fi connection.
Xperia 5 will be available around the world from this autumn.
