The very latest promo video that Sony is sharing with the world is showing 4K, 360-degree footage entirely shot on Xperia Z5 Compact smartphones. Since a single Z5 Compact can't shoot 360-dregree video (no smartphone can), Sony had to use no less than 12 devices, mounting them on a custom 3D printed ring. Each of the 12 handsets shot 4K video, so Sony says it's ended up having a 48K (12 x 4) video. In reality, though, the final video is still just a 4K, 360-degree one.
You can watch Sony's "48K" 360-degree video below, either on your smartphone, or on your PC. In case you're wondering, the video was shot during the Rise Ski & Snowboard Festival in Les Deux Alpes, France.
Like the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Premium, the Xperia Z5 Compact features a 23 MP rear camera with a 1/2.3'' sensor, phase detection auto focus, and (of course) 4K video recording. You can find out more about the smartphone by reading our Sony Xperia Z5 Compact review.
