Sony Xperia Z5 is official, has 23MP camera with world’s fastest autofocus
After the much anticipation from the crowd, Japanese veteran electronics company Sony has rolled out its newest flagship smartphone, the Sony Xperia Z5. As expected, alongside the smartphone came a smaller variant of the flagship, the Xperia Z5 Compact.

Looking at the Xperia Z5, the first thing that will strike you is the new presence of a dual, seemingly equal front-facing speakers flanking the screen. Sony has retained the on-screen control keyboards, pushing the “Sony” logo from under the screen to above the screen — just under the top speaker. The Xperia Z5 measures 146 x 72 x 7.3 mm and tips the scale at 154 grams.
Badged with IP68-certified water and dust resistance, the Z5 has a 5.2″ 1080p display covered with “scratch-resistant” glass. The smartphone runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS and under the hood, you’ll find a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, 3GB of RAM and Adreno 430 graphics card.
Coming to photography, Sony has gone for an upgrade at last. The Xperia Z5 comes with a new 23-megapixel primary camera with phase detection and record autofocus time of 0.03 seconds but still lacks optical image stabilization. The front camera has a 5-megapixel sensor and can record videos in Full HD.
For power, the Xperia Z5 has 2900mAh non-removable battery to lean on which is pretty big considering the thinness of the device. The battery supports fast charging, reaching 60% in 30 minutes under normal circumstances.
Coming in white, graphite black, gold and green color flavors, the Xperia Z5 will begin arriving markets by October.
