Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Premium will be launched in Canada, no word on a US release27
Sony confirmed via Twitter that both the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Premium will be released in Canada sometime "later this fall." Pricing details haven't been announced, but, based on the handsets' prices for the UK and Europe, they could cost around $700 and $800, respectively.
As for the US market, CNET has it that, according to a T-Mobile spokeswoman, the carrier currently doesn't plan to offer any of the three Z5 handsets, while Verizon declined to comment. Of course, this doesn't mean that the new Xperia line can't make it to the US at some point.
Both the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Premium are dust- and water-resistant, feature fingerprint scanners, and are powered by octa-core Snapdragon 810 processors. However, while the regular Z5 sports a 5.2-inch 1080p display, the Z5 Premium has a 5.5-inch 4K (2160 x 3840 pixels) display, being the world's first smartphone to offer such a crazy screen resolution.
