Sony recently announced their latest Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact smartphones with some clearly significant advancements. The most noteworthy feature would likely be the 4K or 2160 x 3840 pixel display on the Xperia Z5 Premium and the world's fastest 0.03 autofocus 23MP rear camera for all three. Other tech specs and features are equally noteworthy as all three are packing in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and side fingerprint sensor but the Xperia Z5 Compact is using 2GB of RAM instead of the 3GB RAM found on the other two. Display sizes are of course different with the Xperia Z5 Premium going for the aforementioned 5.5-inch 4K display, while the Xperia Z5 goes for a 5.2-inch FHD display. The Xperia Z5 Compact goes a step down with a 4.6-inch display and 720 x 1280 pixel resolution but all of them are be water proofed and have 4G LTE Cat 6 connectivity.

Rumours about the upcoming Sony Xperia Z5 have surfaced detailing tech specs and features. The rumours indicate that the Xperia Z5 could be coming in September 2015, which jives with what we know from those in the industry. However, the rumours also show tech specs that include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB RAM, 21MP Sony Exmor RS IMX230 CMOS rear camera, 4500 mAh battery and a fingerprint scanner. The new camera should allow for 4K video recording. While there are no specific Malaysia release dates, we expect the Xperia Z5 to also come with the Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z5 Ultra and Xperia Z5 Tablet. As usual, do take this with a pinch of salt, but it does sound like the correct timing for it to happen.
