“With Xperia 5 we’ve brought what our customers loved from Xperia 1 into a smaller design with the latest award-winning technology from Sony,”
“Xperia 5 continues to bring uncompromised performance and leading experiences to a smartphone, only possible with Sony.”

The Xperia 5 brings the best of Xperia 1 into a smaller footprint while keeping the 21:9 CinemaWide display. The sleek metal frame is protected with the help of durable Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on the front and back, while the device’s IP65/IP68 certified water resistance guards against the elements.
The 21:9 CinemaWide display offers a more useable screen area and is ideal for running two apps simultaneously. You can trigger a split screen swiftly and easily with Side sense, the 21:9 multi-window launcher application, or via voice command.
The Xperia 5 also features BIONZ X for mobile and an advanced triple lens camera with 12MP sensors and Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation. With a 16mm lens for super-wide angle shots, a versatile 26mm lens and a 52mm portrait and tele lens (35mm equiv.), you are ready for any occasion.
The 21:9 CinemaWide 6.1-inch Full HD+ OLED display is powered by Sony’s award-winning BRAVIA TV technologies with X1 for mobile engine bringing HDR (High Dynamic Range) remastering technologies for more contrast, colour and clarity.
Under the hood, of course it has the latest flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform with the integrated X24 LTE Modem for enhanced performance with gigabit LTE connectivity. It features 4 x 4 MIMO technology supporting all LTE bands, uniquely including low-bands, so you’re connected even in areas with weak signal coverage.
Add to all this features such as Smart Stamina, USB PD fast charging and a 3140mAh battery and you’ve got a device built to keep you entertained all day.
The Xperia 5 comes in Blue, Red, Black and Grey and will be available in Malaysia from 1st November 2019 for RM3399 at Sony Stores KLCC and Curve, Sony Store Online and selected Sony Centres.
