Sony has unveiled it’s 2015 smartphone dubbed Xperia Z5 that comes in three handset sizes with much advanced improved camera functions. The phone comes with world’s first 4K ultra high-definition display to showcase its motion picture technology.
The handset sizes have a 23-megapixel Sony image sensor and faster shutter speed, as well as beefed-up capability to take pictures in dark settings.
The largest model, Xperia Z5 Premium, is equipped with a 5.5-inch 4K display, the first adoption of the ultra high-definition screen for smartphones. Previous Sony phones were capable of recording 4K videos, but the handset wasn’t able to playback the clips with the picture quality. Previous Xperia Z series handsets had 2K-or-lower displays.
Another feature of the handset, which was announced at the IFA trade show in Berlin, is a fingerprint sensor that can be used to unlock the phone. Sony’s fingerprint sensor is built in a power bottom placed on the side of the phone.
Sony’s chief executive Kazuo Hirai said the company remains committed to consumer electronics, but the product category is no longer an area for the group’s aggressive investment. Supporting the entertainment conglomerate are its camera image sensors that are also used in the Galaxy and the iPhone. Another cash cow is the PlayStation game network business, in addition to movies and music.
