Sony launches at IFA, as expected, the successor to its previous flagship smartphone before and skipping over a number. For this, the Xperia Z5 comes in three different styles - and with new camera technology.
Sony surprised at the IFA 2015 in Berlin with three new items in the Xperia family: The Japanese put the number as expected with the Xperia Z5 and the smaller brother Xperia Z5 Compact after the Xperia Z3 + Z4 aka continued. New top model is the Xperia Z5 premium that stands out above all by its 5.5-inch display with 4K resolution of the siblings. But the do have something to offer.
Smart fingerprint sensor
The basic equipment is the three - the usual waterproof and dust repellent - equipment largely the same, differing only in details. The heart of the Z5 family form a Snapdragon 810 whose eight cores clocked at 2 GHz and 1.5, and an Adreno 430 GPU. The two larger models there are 3 GB of memory available, to make do with 2 GB only the Xperia Z5 Compact needs. 32 GB of memory on board for system and files Xperias cope up to 128 GB with microSD cards.
With the Z5 the now common in the upper class fingerprint sensor also holds in the Xperia family feeder. Sony is in this case with a good idea straight to the top of the field: The Japanese have greatly reduced the fingerprint sensor with usual in the upper class 550 ppi and integrated into the power button on the right side. This means that the Xperia Z5 can wake up in a movement and unlock. Also, the authorization of payments, the sensor can be used.
Nimble auto focus
Sony thinks highly of the camera module of the new Xperias that has been thoroughly revised. This applies to both the hardware and the software. The module consists of a lens body having six lenses, and a new CMOS sensor with more auto-focus sensors which are distributed over the entire chip area. This allows a phase autofocus, which is much faster than the conventional sharp contrast autofocus.

Phase autofocus systems as they come so far mainly in system cameras with mirror used, determined on the basis of incident light rays, as the lenses must be moved so that the subject is in focus. In certain ambient light conditions and is used in the new Xperias a combination of both methods are used. Usually, however, the phase autofocus should be enough, assures the manufacturer. Thus, the 23-megapixel camera of the new Xperia Z5 in up to 0.03 seconds sharp, which is very fast.
Video records the camera of the Xperia Z5 in 4K resolution at 30 frames per second (fps) at full HD smartphone also creates 60 fps. The video recording benefits from the improved image stabilization of the camera module. Sony relies on a hybrid solution of digital and optical stabilization; Movements on one axis of the module Xperia-Z5 family compensates for mechanical.
All three devices will be available in September. While the Xperia Z5 and the Xperia Z5 Compact will go on sale shortly after the IFA, it takes the Xperia Z5 premium probably by the end of the month. However, the new Sony's come at a price: The Xperia Z5 Premium will cost proud 800 euros, while the Xperia will be to have Z5 for 700 euros. The Z5 Compact is eligible for 550 euros in the trade.
