Sony Debuts New Compact Flagship, the Xperia 5

Xperia 5 Family Horiz

IFA 2019 has officially begun, and we’re starting to see more and more news begin trickling in. Today, Sony confirmed a long-standing rumor about the company potentially introducing a more compact flagship smartphone. As it turns out, it’s true.

Meet the Xperia 5. Covered in glass and metal, this is Sony’s version of what a compact flagship smartphone can be. Granted, this isn’t the most compact smartphone, but thanks to the display’s 21:9 aspect ratio, it’s slimmer in the hand, so it should be easier to handle.

Speaking of the display, let’s get into the specs. On the front, you’ll find a 6.1-inch Full HD+ OLED display with HDR support. It sports a long 21:9 aspect ratio, as I mentioned, along with slim bezels on the top and bottom.

Inside, you’ll find a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. On the back, there’s a main 12MP camera, a telephoto 12MP sensor, and an ultra-wide 12MP lens. Powering the device is a 3,140mAh battery which comes paired to a USB-C port and sony’s Xperia Adaptive Charging. You also get Android Pie out of the box, although there’s no word on a potential Android 10 upgrade.

Color-wise, the Xperia 5 will be available in black, blue, red, or white.

As far as pricing goes, Sony has yet to announce it. We also don’t know when it’ll launch, but pre-orders open in Europe in the coming weeks. Stay tuned, folks.
