Leaked Video confirms Sony Xperia Z5 has 4K Screen

The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium will have a 4K screen, a French Sony executive confirms this on video. Sony will hold a media event at the IFA 2015 in Berlin on September 2nd.

Sony will unveil at the IFA 2015 the new Sony Xperia Z5 smartphones. Sony has teased an event on September 2nd to make the announcement. Last week a Facebook post revealed that Sony will introduce three Xperia Z5 phones.

The Xperia Z5 Compact features a 4.6-inch 720p HD screen, the Xperia Z5 comes with a 5.2 inch screen with 1080p FHD and the Xperia Z5 Premium will have a stunning 5.5 inch screen with 4K 2160p UltraHD.

The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium would be the world's first 4K display smartphones. Now a video leaked in which a French Sony executive confirms that the Xperia Z5 Premium has a 4K screen. In an interview with clubic.com, Sony's French Marketing director shows of the new Xperia Z5. 

The video was not supposed to air before the September 2 event, but it is now out on Youtube in multiple copies. Sony is indeed blowing away the competition with the world's first 4K display smartphone. 

In April Sharp announced a 5.5 inch 4K display based on IGZO. This 4K smartphone display has since been in hiding. This is probably the display Sony is using in the Xperia Z5 Premium.

The Xperia Z5 will also have a top end camera. There will be 23MP camera with a super-fast 0.1-second hybrid 192 "PDAF" autofocus, F1.8 aperture and 1 / 2.2-inch sensor size and improved image stabilization. Sony has teased on their UK Twitter account that there is a smartphone coming with "greater focus." This supports the above claim of a high-end camera.

XperiaBlog has posted three press images of the Xperia Z5 which show a very elegant and clean design that calls out Apple. It appears that Sony managed to integrate the 23MP camera without it protruding from the back.

Sony managed that by not going crazy thin on the case design. Apple really needs to consider this approach. A flush backside is just incredibly clean as the photo shows below. Note that Sony also hides the hideous antenna isolation lines.

The Sony Xperia Z5 has a fighting chance to make an impact based on what we know so far. Sony needs a new smartphone winner to battle Samsung.
