Sony Malaysia opens registration of interest for their Xperia Z5 line


UPDATE: Sony Malaysia will be launching the Xperia Z5 Compact Dual, Xperia Z5 Dual and Xperia Z5 Premium Dual.

Given their recent troubles, this will be a make or break device(s) for Japanese company; with the Z5 line has the potential of being their saving grace. The three devices are slated to make an official appearance in Malaysia on the 29th October during this special invite-only event (you can sign up here).

Seen on SIRIM (Xperia Z5 Compact) earlier last week, it’ll be great to see how 4K will be illustrated in the form of the Xperia Z5 Premium. Also, all three will make use of Sony’s latest 23-megapixel sensor that won it the best smartphone camera by DxOMark, hopefully giving the other camera-ready flagships a run for their money in real-life situations.

Sony smartphone camera sensors have always been top class, as seen on other notable flagships but the Japanese company seems to lag behind in the image processing department. The smallest of the Xperia bunch, the Z5 Compact will only command 4.6-inches of screen-estate in the form of a 720p (1280 x 720) resolution. While its internals utilise the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor found on its bigger brothers, it only has 2GB of RAM.

For your storage there’s 32GB internally but you’ll get a microSD slot to expand up to 200GB if you want to. As mentioned earlier, it’ll come equipped with the same camera sensors as its bigger siblings; 23-megapixels on the rear and 5-megapixels on the front. As the smallest of the three, it shows itself in four playful colours; Graphite Black, White, Yellow and Coral.

The middle-child, the Xperia Z5 sports a larger and denser 5.2-inch FHD display (1920 x 1080). Similarly, it’ll have the 810 SoC, 32GB of internal storage and feature the same camera setup but come with 3GB of RAM and a 2,900 mAh battery instead.

Saving the best for last, the Xperia Z5 Premium will include the first-ever 4K (2840 x 2160) 5.5-inch screen – if you did the math, that’s about 806 ppi. A screen of such caliber has to have a camera capable of matching the output, so the aforementioned 23-megapixel 1 / 2.3-inch Exmor RS Sensor with a f/2.0 lens is capable of shooting 4K.

UPDATE: Sony Malaysia will be launching the Xperia Z5 Compact Dual, Xperia Z5 Dual and Xperia Z5 Premium Dual.

Other than its larger 3,430 mAh capacity battery, there’s not much that sets it apart from the Xperia Z5. All three support LTE networks and could arrive in a dual-SIM variant on our shores but if you’re relying on SIRIM, the Compact model listed only shows the singular SIM. However, the two larger devices aren’t shown, so maybe they might be dual-SIM capable.
