Sony’s next flagship smartphone will be the first to feature the company’s new 23 megapixel Sony Exmor RS image sensor. The phone also features a waterproof design with metal sides and glass on the front and back, up to 2 days of battery life, and a fingerprint sensor.

Oh yeah… it’ll also come in three sizes. There’s the Sony Xperia Z5 with a 5.2 inch, 1080p display, the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact with a 4.6 inch, 720p display, and the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, with a 5.5 inch, 4K display.

That makes Sony the first company to launch a phone with a 3840 x 2160 pixel display, but something tells me Sony won’t be the last.

The company says the Z5 Premium uses upscaling technology so that even lower-resolution photos and videos should look good on the high-res display.

As for the camera, Sony says the new phones can autofocus in just 0.03 seconds, supports optical image stabilization, and offers up to 5x digital zoom with no image quality loss.

All three phones are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processors, feature support for Quick Charte 2.0, and support 4G LTE networks.

The phones ship with Android 5.1 Lollipop software and the larger models sport 3GB of RAM, while the Z5 Compact has just 2GB. The phones will be available with up to 32GB of built-in storage, and each model supports microSD cards for up to 200GB of removable storage.

Sony says each model should get up to 2 days of battery life. To achieve that, the largest phone features a 3430 mAh battery while the Z5 has a 2900 mAh battery and the Z5 Compact has a 2700 mAh battery.

The Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Comapct should be available globally starting in October, with the Z5 Premium coming a month later. The Z5 and Z5 Premium will be available in both single-SIM or dual-SIM models.
