During the IFA 2019 Fair in Berlin, Sony introduced a new edition of the top model of its smartphone. The Xperia 5 is packaged in a Corning Gorilla 6 metal case and protective glass. It is slightly smaller and more compact than its predecessor. Like previous models, it is water-resistant (IP65 / 68).
The OLED display is full HD resolution, 6.1 inches (15.4 centimeters) diagonal and 21: 9 aspect ratio, with HDR support and BRAVIA technology. It is powered by an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 clocked up to 2.84 GHz, with an integrated X24 LTE modem that supports gigabit data transfer and 4 x 4 MIMO technology for better connectivity in areas with less signal for LTE networks.
There is also an Adreno 640 graphics card, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory that can be expanded up to 1TB, but only on models with dual SIM card support.
The Xperia 5 is equipped with a BIONZ X image processor and a camera with three rear lenses (one of which is wide-angle and telephoto lens), apertures of f / 1.6 to f / 2.4, 12MP sensors and an Optical SteadyShot image stabilizer. It can shoot video resolutions up to 2160 pixels at up to 30 frames per second. AF AF technology is retained. The front camera has an 8MP sensor and an aperture of f / 2.0.
The battery has a capacity of 3410mAh, with support for fast charging (18W) and Smart Stamina mode. A new stereo speaker incorporates Dolby Atmos technology in the new Sony case. High-resolution audio for wired or wireless transmission is supported, as is DSEE HX technology.
The operating system is Android 9 Pie. Game Enhancer mode has been enhanced to allow screen capture at 20 frames per second and voice synthesization.
The new Smart Connectivity option analyzes Wi-Fi signals to predict potential connection problems in the near future, using Sony in-depth learning. It will automatically switch to LTE if it senses that there may be issues with Wi-Fi.
The Sony Xperia 5 comes in blue, red, black and gray. It will be available for pre-order from next week in select European markets, bundled with the WF-1000XM3 wireless headset. The starting price in Europe should be €799 (about $882).
