Three phones powered by Snapdragon 810

Sony has announced its Xperia Z5 family that has three phones, from compact to premium. They all have a Snapdragon 810 and some impressive screen choices. 

The company is aggressive with its phone line and the main surprise is the Xperia Z5 Premium has a 5.5-inch 4K, 3,840 x 2,160 screen. This translates as 806-pixels per inch which is the highest resolution for phone to date. So many pixels and a Snapdragon 810 will drain your battery much faster but we will have to wait for the testing results to confirm this.

The stylish phone comes with 32GB storage as default and includes microSD card support. Sony brings exclusive 23 megapixel camera to its devices and claims a two day battery life. The new camera for Xperia Z5 lines uses a six-element 24mm lens with a wide f/2.0 aperture, promising good photos.

All the phones are waterproof and have a fingertip sensor, something that is quite useful. The Z5 Premium is 7.8mm thick, the Z5 with 5.2 inch screen is 7.3 mm thick while the Z5 compact with 4.6 inch 720P screen is 8.3 mm thick.
