As usual, the previous day of a great fair marks the beginning of fireworks, and in this give 0 of the IFA 2019 fair we have already met the first of the class, to the new smartphone star of the Japanese giant Sony, who wants to recover the vanguard by betting on offer the market something different What we used to.
In fact, in a context of infinite growth of screen diagonals, the truth is that Sony is the only one who continues to believe that there is a market for small-sized smartphones, and this new Sony Xperia 5 be the exception of a high range that already awaits you with open arms.
And is that s friends, finally this complete month of September that we will live in terms of ads has left us the first surprise, because neither Sony Xperia 2 nor Sony Xperia 1 Compact, the newest of Sony bets on new denomination and it will be called Xperia 5 although I drink without a doubt the design of a Sony Xperia 1 that has not landed with too much good footing in the market.
The latest from Sony comes in a small bottle, but with all the power of a high-end and the usual multimedia deployment of the Japanese firm
Technical characteristics: this is the Sony Xperia 5 and this is what it has to offer us
If we look at the press render of the new Minato star terminal, many will believe that we have reused those of the Xperia 1, and that is that certainly on the outside the two devices with a tracing unlike size. In fact, Sony has maintained the concept ambient flow to the fullest with full symmetry – despite the huge frames – and a very long 21: 9 format.
Where this new Xperia 5 stands out is undoubtedly in its packaging, because the usual glass and metal sandwich with Gorilla Glass 6 stays at 158 x 68 x 8.2 mm leaving room for a 6.1-inch panel, with a battery that exceeds 3,000 mAh and a weight of only 164 grams.

Power in abundance and the best multimedia deployment, always with the DNA of the Sony Xperia
Nothing is missing from a device that failed to remove upper and lower frames, but in return we place the fingerprint reader in an ergonomic position on the side, maintains IP68 certification of protection against liquids, and raise the multimedia bet with triple camera in a smaller size.
Sony has not been cut either with the deployment of power, adding to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 into the equation this time accompanied by 6 GB of RAM and another 128 GB for internal memory, expandable and sufficient for a terminal of these characteristics.
