As widely anticipated, at IFA Sony has just unveiled its new top of the range: Sony Xperia 5, a device that does not follow the fashion of notch and, just like Xperia 1, aims instead at multimedia content.
Once again, we are not just talking about watching movies and TV series on theexcellent OLED display in 21: 9 format with HDR and Dolby Atmos audio support, but also to film like a professional (or almost): on the back we find a triple camera with eye-tracking autofocus.
