Sony announced its latest smartphone called Xperia 5 at IFA 2019. It is considered as the compact sibling of the Xperia 1 flagship with its 6.1-inch OLED panel with a tall CinemaWide screen.
Under the hood, the Xperia 5 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. Its rear cameras are the same trio of cameras on the Xperia 1, these being a 12MP main sensor partnered with a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 12MP telephoto lens. These are placed on the upper left corner of the Xperia 5. Its display has a resolution of 2520×1080 or FHD+
The Xperia 5 also features Dolby Atmos-enhanced stereo sound with one speaker on the bottom and the earpiece acting as the second speaker to complete the stereo experience.
The new phone, like the Xperia 1, also brings Creator Mode. The newer of the two phones has Smart Connectivity which allows the device to switch to LTE when it predicts any compromise in the wireless connectivity.
In the battery department, the latest Sony device comes with a smaller battery at 3140mAh but still supports Power Delivery charging which tops at 18W.
The Xperia 5 is bundled with the Sony WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones.
