Sony Xperia Z5 makes brief video appearance (UPDATE TO FULL LENGTH VIDEO)
All three Xperia Z5 models whose announcement at IFA we're awaiting will have a new 23MP rear camera and a fingerprint scanner. The latter will be located along the right side of the phones, which forced Sony to put the power button and volume rocker further down the side of each model. And of course, each of the three phones will offer the dust and water proofing feature that has become a trademark of the Xperia Z line.
All three models will be powered by the Snapdragon 810 SoC, which means that they will feature an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. Back in June, Sony admitted that the Snapdragon 810 was running into overheating issues with the Sony Xperia Z3+ and Sony Xperia Z4. Users complained that their phone would heat up while watching Netflix in HD, filming a video, or while playing video games. A run through the CPU-Z system identification tool by the Xperia Z4 showed the device running hot at 154 degrees fahrenheit.
Perhaps Sony will address the issue with the Snapdragon 810 chipset on Wednesday. But go ahead and put all of that out of your mind so that you can enjoy this clip of Sony's new, screen resolution-busting flagship handset.
