It sports a 5.2-inch Full HD LCD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor and an Adreno 340 GPU will power the Z5. It will pack 3GB of RAM with either 16GB or 32GB of internal memory with room to expand via a microSD card slot. The camera uses a 23MP Exmor RS sensor with an f/2.0 aperture 24mm ‘G’ series lens capable of 4K recording.
