Compact Xperia 5 V now in Malaysia priced at RM4,999 with limited time free gifts

There’s still a certain appeal to compact phones and Sony is attempting to bring back the charm of a small form factor with their usual array of quality cameras and performance with their new Sony Xperia 5 V that’s now available in Malaysia with early bird free gifts if you get it before the end of 2023.

What is the Xperia 5 V

Pronounced as the Xperia 5 mark five, the phone itself is just 8.6mm thin while featuring a 6.1-inch FHD+ OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 21:9 aspect ratio that’s sheathed in tough Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor running Android 13 paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB of expandable storage via a microSD card slot that supports up to 1TB cards.

On the rear, the Xperia 5 V has a 52MP F/1.9 primary camera with an Exmor T for mobile camera sensor paired with a secondary 12MP F/2.2 ultra wide angle camera with an Exmor RS mobile sensor. For mug shots, you get a 12MP selfie camera perched just above the display.

Other interesting features include fast WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity as well as a robust IP68 dust and water resistance. Unfortunately there’s only a black colourway for Malaysia though it comes in white and blue for other regions.
