Sony's Xperia 5 is another long OLED smartphone

In the camera department, you get a triple camera setup that's been pasted here from Xperia 1.

Xperia 5 brings the latest experiences from Sony in a stylish design made to fit your hand. Under the hood, the phone uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform, an X24 LTE Modem, 6 GB RAM, and a 3,140 mAh battery running Android 9 Pie.

Although not confirmed, it seems the Xperia 2 could feature a slightly smaller screen, upgraded processor and a change to the position of the rear camera.

The rumors about Sony preparing something for IFA 2019 were true, but it is not the Sony Xperia 2, as the gossip implied.

Initially, the smartphone will be bundled with the Sony WF-1000XM3 noise-cancelling headphones, with pre-orders starting next week, while actual shipping is scheduled for October.

Both players converted on about 80% of their first-serve points, but Cilic saved 13 of 14 break point chances. Osaka's next match, which will take place on Monday, is against 13th-seeded Belinda Bencic of Switzerland.

The phone is also water resistant with a rating of IP68, so it should be able to survive the odd splash of water.

This may have been created to allow for more tech inside the phone with wireless charging one of the features missing from the current flagship. There's also built-in support for PlayStation Dualshock 4 controllers - a feature also being rolled out on the Xperia 1 - so that should make gaming on the go a little more intuitive.

The Xperia 5 phone goes on sale in Europe in October but as yet we don't have a United States release date.

It means you get the main wide-angle (f/1.6, 26mm) camera along with a super-wide snapper (f/2.4, 16mm) with a 130 degree field of view and a telephoto lens (f/2.4, 52mm) offering a 2x optical zoom and data for portrait mode. We'll be sure to push that to its limits at the time of our full review.

Sony fans could see some major news today with the firm set to reveal a raft of updates at its IFA technology show keynote.
