Xperia Z5 first 4k Smartphone
Yes you heard it right. Sony has released worlds first 4k Xperia Z5 “super flagship” Smartphone which features 5.5in 4K display, which has a pixel density of 801 pixels per inch (ppi), Snapdragon 810 64-bit processor and 3GB of RAM, 23 megapixels Camera, weighs 154 grams, 2900 mAh Battery .
Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus with its 5.5in 1080p display has a pixel density of 400ppi, while Sony’s previous smartphones had a maximum of 423ppi. So this can be noted as huge progress in mobile generation.
“Why is 4K needed? There are 76 display resolution variations but only nine content resolution variations, none of which include 2K, so if you’re going to go higher than 1080p, 4K is the answer,” said Takao Yagi from Sony’s Xperia display technology group in Japan.
Despite Xperia Z5 has a super-high resolution, Sony promises up to two-days battery life, using the same image processing and power saving technologies it used within its Z3 and Z3 Compact, both of which had two-day battery lives.
The smartphone will also use Sony’s first new smartphone camera sensor in two years, which integrates phase detection technology from the company’s Alpha cameras for the world’s fastest focus time of 0.03 seconds (Believe me its super fast timing).
The 5.5in Z5 Premium will be joined by a standard 5.2in Z5, the successor to Sony’s Z3, with a 1080p screen with 423ppi and similar specifications to the Premium.
Sony will also update its smaller, top-end smartphone range with the Z5 Compact, which promises the same performance as its larger smartphones but in a more manageable frame with a 4.6in 720p screen.
It features fingerprint scanner first of its kind which is placed under the power button on the side of the phone. All three smartphones are waterproof.
“People press the power button 100 times a day, having a fingerprint sensor under it on the side means it’s not awkward to activate and keeps the phone secure,” said Jun Makino from Sony mobile.
Good work sony. Hope you have lightning sales for this model after all its what that matters.
