The Sony Xperia Z5 series was launched in Malaysia recently but only the standard Xperia Z5 Dual and Xperia Z5 Compact have hit the shelves so far. Saving the best for last, Sony has finally opened pre-orders for the flagship Xperia Z5 Premium Dual that comes with the highest 4K resolution display on the smart phone.
As the name suggests, the device carries a premium price tag of RM3,099 inclusive of GST. However if you place your order today, Sony Mobile is giving you loads of freebies including an Android Wear smart watch.
All 3 colours are available – Chrome, Gold and Black. In terms of specs, the Xperia Z5 Premium Dual gets a larger 5.5″ IPS display pushing 3840×2160 that gives an epic pixel density of 806ppi. Juicing up the 4K device is a 3,430mAh capacity battery which promises up to 2 days of battery life.
The rest of the hardware are similar with the standard 5.2″ Xperia Z5, featuring a Snapdragon 810 Octa-Core processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage that’s expandable with microSD. For imaging, it gets a 23MP main camera with PDAF while the front gets a 5.1MP shooter for selfies.
In terms of connectivity, it supports 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC and dual-SIM with 4G LTE support. The power button now doubles as a fingerprint scanner and the front still retains a pair of stereo speakers.
