IFA Roundup: Sony unveils new Xperia smartphones including one with 4K display This week at the annual IFA event, Sony unveiled new Xperia smartphones including the flagship Xperia Z5 and its little brother, the Z5 Compact in addition to the new high-end Z5 Premium.
Most notable of the bunch is the Z5 Premium, which features a 5.5" 4K TRILUMINOS Display for mobile and IPS. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 810 processor, 32GB internal storage and a large 3430 mAh battery. Sony notes that the microSD slot can support a 200GB card, giving you ample room for some 4K content.

The device supports quick charge, has built in DLNA and MHL 3.0 for porting the content to the big screen and Sony says the Premium will upscale everything you have to 4K without noticeable loss of detail.

Furthermore, the Premium also "features Sony's innovative memory on display feature the data transfer between processor and device is optimized so Xperia Z5's display memory technology remembers the display of images seen on your smartphone and caches the image or video so that you don't need to reload the full image each time you view it preserving battery power in the process."

The phones also promise the best camera yet, with a large 1/2.3 Exmor RS for mobile, a 23MP sensor and F2.0 G Lens with the fastest autofocus on the market.

"Smartphones are part of people's lives" said Hiroki Totoki, President and CEO at Sony Mobile Communications. "Since users already create, share and enjoy most of their content on the go we've set out to bring Sony's latest innovations in camera, design and display to ensure the Xperia Z5 series is the best possible lifestyle and entertainment platform."

The Xperia Z5 Premium will be available starting in November although pricing is still unknown.
