Sony Teases Improved Focusing System for Xperia Z5

Sony has teased an upcoming Xperia handset on Twitter, saying all will be revealed on September 2 – the date of its IFA 2015 event where the company is expected to launch its new flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z5. Like the last one, the new teaser hints at a new camera focusing technology.

The Twitter post by Sony Xperia UK on Monday shows a blurry image of a handset taking a shot of a monument in the evening. Although the image does not show the device clearly, the tweet mentions that “Get ready for a smartphone with greater focus. All will become clear on 02.09.2015,” clearly stating the device would feature an updated focusing camera technology and will launch during the company’s pre-IFA event next month.

The term ‘greater focus’ in the tweet might be referring to the inclusion of the Hybrid AF technology (which combines phase detection and contrast autofocus systems) in the unannounced Sony Xperia Z5, just like the recently launched Xperia M5.

In last month’s teaser, The post mentioned the Xperia device with new camera that can capture images in a ‘split-second’ – pointing at a new type of autofocus method, and maybe an improvement to sensor sensitivity and shutter speed.

Recent rumours have also pointed out that the Xperia Z5 might arrive alongside the Xperia Z5 Compact. Details on the rumoured Sony Xperia Z5+ also emerged on the Web earlier this month via the handset’s User Agent Profile and promotional image leaks.
