We know that Sony is hosting an event at IFA 2015 on September 2nd where it is expected to unveil the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact. Today, the company has teased a smartphone “with greater focus”.
Sony’s official UK Twitter account has tweeted a photo along with an announcement that reads, “Get ready for a smartphone with greater focus. All will become clear on 02.09.2015.” Sony recently introduced this technology in its Xperia M5, which the company says allows “fast, accurate focusing in all situations, even if your subject is moving.”
We expect that Sony will launch a new Xperia flagship, along with a smaller ‘compact’ sibling. Sony is most likely to market these as the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact. A phablet version is also expected by the end of 2015, but this may not be ready for an announcement at IFA.
We believe the tweet might hint at the phones sporting an upgraded Exmor RS sensor with the hybrid autofocus technology that Sony introduced in its recently announced Xperia M5, which the company says allows “fast, accurate focusing in all situations, even if your subject is moving.”
