Sony Xperia Z5 series comes to NZ

Sony Mobile has confirmed its latest flagship smartphone series will become available in New Zealand as of next week.

The Xperia Z5 and the Xperia Z5 Compact will be available from Spark as of October 20, with the Z5 Compact being made available via Vodafone from October 22.

“Sony’s Xperia Z Series has consistently brought advanced innovation and technology to the mobile phone industry,” says John Featherstone, Sony Mobile Communications head of business development for APAC and market head for Oceania.

“We don’t believe in innovation for its own sake – it’s about listening to customer needs and ever changing behaviours,” he says. “The Xperia Z5 Series has been developed to answer these – a best-in-class camera and imaging experience, our renowned battery life of up to two days, and all combined with new innovations in design.“

Featherstone says since unveiling the new flagship smartphones at IFA in Berlin last month, anticipation has been building as to when they will be available for purchase in New Zealand.

“So we are delighted to announce that the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact will be available for customers from next week,” he says.

The new phones feature two-day battery life, water and dust resistance, and fingerprint sensor technology.

 Featherstone says the Xperia Z5 series brings next-generation camera capabilities to leading smartphones thanks to Sony’s Alpha camera technology. All devices in the series feature 23 mega-pixel Exmor RS for mobile sensor, supporting the fastest autofocus on a smartphone.

The Xperia Z5 recently topped the DxOMark mobile rankings - the recognised industry standard for camera and lens image quality measurements and ratings A total of 87 points were awarded to the Xperia Z5, as the experts at DxO’s testing labs declared the smartphone to have the best photo and video scores amongst all mobile devices ever tested by DxO, Featherstone explains.

“Designed for all lifestyles, the Xperia Z5 Series will provide the same flagship experience in a choice of form factors,” he says.
