LONDON, 4th October 2019 – The highly-anticipated latest addition to Sony’s flagship series, the Xperia 5, is today available for purchase from retailers across the UK. Launching at £699 sim-free, the Xperia 5 takes key technologies from Xperia 1 and presents them in a compact, stylish and sleek smartphone design. 

Despite its smaller, more pocket-friendly footprint, Xperia 5 retains some key design cues and features that fans loved from Xperia 1, ensuring the same uncompromised levels of performance and quality of experience only possible with Sony. The eye-catching 21:9 CinemaWide™ 6.1 inch Full HD+ OLED display, powered by Sony’s award-winning BRAVIA® TV technologies, is ideal for running two apps simultaneously and fully immerses viewers with more contrast, colour and clarity than ever before. 

Sony’s industry-leading technology is present throughout the Xperia 5, including the handset’s triple lens camera with 12MP sensors and Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilisation, which uses critically acclaimed Eye AF technology from Sony’s Alpha™ cameras to ensure that you can take the perfect picture regardless of the conditions. With a 16mm lens for super wide-angle shots, a versatile 26mm lens and a 52mm portrait and tele lens (35mm equiv.), you’ll be ready for any occasion. 

Those looking for a home console experience from their handset can power up their gaming with Xperia 5 and sync their device to a PlayStation® DualShock®4, giving you an unparalleled full screen view and unrivalled control on the go. Dolby Atmos® sound provides superb content immersion whether you’re watching the latest movie release, streaming your favourite show, listening to music or playing games, while the 3140mAh battery will make sure the Xperia 5 keeps going all day.  

Xperia 5 comes with Android™ 9 Pie and is available online and in-store at retailers nationwide. Selected retailers are offering customers the opportunity to redeem a number of unique bundles with their purchase of Xperia 5.
