Sony is definitely stirring some waves with the new series of Xperia devices that rock the 4K mobile display. The Xperia device series includes Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact, and a new phablet moniker Xperia Z5 Premium.

Sony has decided to go with the Omnibalance design, a metal chassis and of course glass panels, both front and back for all three gizmos.
