For those who can recall the era when Sony would unveil a phone and then keep eager consumers waiting for several months before its actual release, the experience with the Xperia 5 V is a refreshing departure from the past.
This time, Sony wasted no time. They officially introduced the Xperia 5 V at the beginning of this month, and the surprise doesn’t end there – it’s already up for grabs. If you happen to be in Germany, Amazon has it listed at €999.
The shipping date, as listed on Amazon, seems to be a moving target, but the latest estimate suggests you could have it at your doorstep as early as Monday. And if patience isn’t your strong suit, fear not. Sony’s online store and Saturn are both ready to whisk one to your door within a mere couple of days.
Now, in case you need a quick refresher on its specifications: the Sony Xperia 5 V boasts a 6.1-inch 1080×2520 120Hz OLED display, powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, backed by 8GB of RAM, and offers 128GB or 256GB of storage options. The camera setup includes a 48MP main shooter with optical image stabilization, a 12MP ultrawide lens, and notably, no dedicated telephoto camera. Selfie enthusiasts will appreciate the 12MP front-facing snapper, while a robust 5,000mAh battery supports 30W fast charging. It comes preloaded with Android 13, the latest iteration of the Android operating system.
The Xperia 5 V is now within reach, bridging the gap between announcement and availability with remarkable speed, a testament to Sony’s commitment to delivering its latest technology swiftly to the eager hands of consumers.
