Sony’s Xperia Z5 Series Arrive with 4K and High Price Tag


Sony Xperia Z5 SeriesSony introduced three products under its Xperia Z5 product line. These three gadgets are referred to as Xperia Z5, Z5 Compact, and Z5 Premium.

Pricing of Sony Xperia Z5 Products

Sony’s suggested price for Xperia Z5 premium is 699 pounds sterling, whereas Xperia Z5 Compact could be sold for 599 pounds sterling. A hundred pounds difference for 4K?

In fact, latest hardware from Apple may now be priced higher, considering that Xperia Z5 basic model will also cost not less than 550 pounds sterling or so if Sony has its way.

However, retailers know that Sony’s handsets do not enjoy as much market share. Therefore, they are offering the Xperia Z5 products at much lower rate. For now, Xperia Z5 Premium is available for 629 pounds sterling. The Xperia Z5 Compact is being retailed for 525 pounds sterling and the lower model is available for 429 pounds sterling.


For now, the Xperia Z5 products would be available in 3 different colors, i.e., chrome, golden color, and black color.

Sony’s Xperia Z5 Premium would be the first smartphone to have 4K technology in it. But Sony also needs to take cognizance of the fact that Smartphone market is almost saturated, and there are other well-established products such as iPhone 6 available at lesser price. The price tag is indeed on the higher side and needs a revisit unless Sony wants to wind up its smartphone division. Ironically, this was one of the best opportunities Sony had to snatch away market shares of other competitors.
