Description

Sony is taking us all for a grand surprise, and has outfitted the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium with a a 2160 x 3840 pixels Ultra-HD (4K) resolution display of its own. The 5.5" screen sports the record-breaking 800+ ppi density, while the current record-holder, the Samsung Galaxy S6, makes do with 577ppi. The Z5 Premium is powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 810 chipset. There are 3 generous GB of DDR4 RAM in the flagship, and 32 GB of storage, along with a microSD card slot for expansion. Sony's newest 23 MP Exmor RS sensor makes a cameo in a Sony flagship, and we can reasonable expect extremely fast performance, as the phone will sport phase detection autofocus with 192 focus points. Sony promises 0.03s focusing times, which is rather fast indeed.The Xperia Z5 Premium is a tad on the large side for a 5.5-incher at 154.4 x 76.0 x 7.8 mm, and quite hefty at 180g., yet you are getting a premium waterproof chassis, and a large 3430 mAh battery.
