All the way, Sony Xperia 1 was indeed an interesting flagship release for the company in the first part of the year. However, Sony isn’t stopping there though. Recently, the firm has announced the Sony Xperia 5, completely removing a few numbers in the process.

Sony’s latest flagship smartphone looks quite different from the Xperia 1 on the ground of being just a little smaller, providing a 6.1-inch FHD + OLED HDR screen compared to the Xperia 1’s 6.5-inch 4K OLED screen. The Xperia 5 is similar to the Xperia 1 on the 21:9 aspect ratio though.

Sony’s phone sticks to the offering of triple rear camera setup, following its adoption on the older phone. As per Android Authority, The company says it’s still a 12MP triple camera layout, offering a normal, wide, and telephoto trio. Much like the earlier flagship, you can expect eye autofocus tech here, as the phone tracks a subject’s eyes in order to keep them in focus.

A phone with a smaller size essentially denotes a smaller battery, and this is indeed the case for the Xperia 5. The battery weighs in at 3,140mAh compared to the Xperia 1’s 3,330mAh — not a massive difference, then.

Sony has also confirmed that the DualShock 4 controller will now be supported on the Xperia 5 and Xperia 1, specifically putting a relevant reference on Fortnite when talking about integration and implementation.

Otherwise, the new phone is powered by a Snapdragon 855 chipset, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of expandable storage. Other noteworthy details include IP68 water/dust resistance, an 8MP selfie camera, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. Don’t expect a 3.5mm port here though.

The Sony Xperia 5 will be available in Europe from next month, with pre-orders taking place next week. This is too early for an in-sync code to release with a jump from 1 to 5 directly. However, a huge critique of the tech, the audience and users are on the other side of release where it will be open for their perception.

In providing sensation to the interesting touch, the Japanese giant says you can optimize audio for your ears by taking an image of your ear. The photo is then forwarded to the cloud for analysis, with optimizations being sent to your phone. How interesting has this been for you?
