Sony Xperia Z5 , Z5 Compact and Z5 Premium Launched in IFA Berlin
Finally, Sony revealed its new smartphones namely Sony Xperia Z5 , Sony Xperia Z5 Compact and the world’s first 4K smartphone , Sony Xperia Z5 Premium in IFA Berlin 2015 . These smartphones are the successor of Sony Xperia Z4 which was market by Sony in different countries as Sony Xperia Z3+.
It was quite unexpected that Sony would launch Sony Xperia Z5 in September as they launched their Sony Xperia Z4 in April this year. Even the launch of Sony Xperia Z4 was just after 6 months of the launch of Sony Xperia Z3 which was released in September 2014. Sony might have started following new trends to release new smartphone in just 6 months period, but I guess this might just make users unhappy as in 6 months their smartphone would lose its charm and value of being the latest in the series.
As far as the specification is concerned for these smartphones, all these smartphones almost have the same specification expected for size , display resolution , battery and RAM. Rest everything else is same and it was a good decision from Sony to keep most of the specs same.
