September 2, 2015 - Written By Alexander Maxham

At IFA 2015 in Berlin, Germany Sony announced the Xperia Z5 Compact along with the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Premium. As with previous Compact models, the Xperia Z5 Compact is a smaller version of their flagship the Xperia Z5. With the biggest differences being the screen size and battery. Let’s take a look at all of the specs inside the Xperia Z5 Compact.

This year, Sony opted to stick with a 4.6-inch 720p display. Which works out to a 323 PPI, and it is a Triluminos display this time around. Powering the Compact, we have Qualcomm’s flagship the Snapdragon 810 CPU which is a octa-core processor and also is 64-bit. Along with 2GB of RAM, up to 32GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot that supports up to 200GB of extra storage. All powered by a 2700mAh battery, which Sony rates as getting two days of juice out of. It is non-removable, however. The Xperia Z5 Compact is rated IP65/68 waterproof and dustproof.

Dimensions of the Xperia Z5 Compact are 127mm x 65mm x 8.9mm weighing in at 138 grams and it’ll be available in White, Graphite Black, Yellow, Coral. Sony has finally upgraded the back camera on the Xperia Z5 lineup. We’re looking at a 23MP camera on the back, that supports 4K video, and is a 24mm wide-angle G Lens. The back camera also has HDR for both videos and photos, ISO 12800 for photos, ISO 4000 for video.  On the front we have a 5MP camera, is a 25mm wide-angle lens which can shoot 1080p, great for video calls. The Xperia Z5 Compact supports a slew of Audio codecs including DNC, HRA, DSEE-HX, and LDAC. It also has automatic headset compensation, S-Force front surround stereo speakers and ClearAudio+.

For networks, it will support EDGE, 3G, HSPA+ and LTE. Up to LTE Cat 6 actually. No word on which bands it’ll support, specifically. But we will have different variants for different regions. The Xperia Z5 Compact is running Android 5.1 Lollipop on board, with Sony’s skin over top.

The Xperia Z5 Compact will be available globally in October 2015. So far we have no word on which carriers will be carrying the device. We should have that info soon, though.
