Sony Xperia Z5 ‘Premium’ to have a 4K display

Sony’s upcoming Xperia Z5 flagship will be the first smartphone with a 4K screen, according to a leaked video (which has subsequently been removed). In it, Sony’s marketing director says the company will release both a 5.2-inch Z5 and 5.5-inch Z5 ‘Premium,’ and the video is focused on the larger model.
That 4K display means at that size it will sport over 800 ppi (superfluous is an understatement, don‘t ya think?), but the device also packs a 23-megapixel camera with a 0.03 second autofocus and 5X digital zoom, confirming a previous leak. The new flagship will be just as waterproof and dustproof as the Xperia Z3+ model, with an interesting new addition – the micro-USB connector is waterproof, even without a cover.
The all-metal phone retains Sony’s boxy design language we‘ve seen over the last several years, so there aren‘t any surprises on that front. The Z5 will also be Sony’s first phone with a fingerprint sensor, which is mounted in an unusual spot: the tiny side power button (according to rumours).
As for the rest of the specs, previous rumours had both of the new Z5s equipped with Snapdragon 810 SoCs, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. (Unlike its bigger brother, the 5.2-inch Z5 is said to have a 1080p screen.) Given the nature of the video, we wouldn’t treat this info as gospel just yet. However, Sony will reveal all at IFA in Berlin later this week.
