The handset will start shipping in Europe, including the UK, later this month. Sony has not yet confirmed the India launch of this model. Customers buying the phone between September 22 to October 26 from major UK retailers will be able to avail of an exclusive Xperia 5 V launch bundle that comes with the Sony WH-CH720N headphones.

Backed by a 5,000mAh battery, the Sony Xperia 5 V supports 30W wired fast charging. For security, it is equipped with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. It also supports 5G, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3, GPS, NFC and USB 3.2 Type-C connectivity. The handset comes with an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance and has a 3.5mm audio jack.
