The Sony Xperia 5 Mk. V is Available in the Philippines via Team Fridays!

Secure this chance to experience a professional-like camera phone.

While Sony phones are no longer officially released in the Philippine market, there are still some trustworthy sellers and retailers that offer it in a grey market area. One of these is Team Fridays which just posted on their Facebook page about the Xperia 5 Mk. V. It comes with 256GB ROM and costs PHP 49,800.

As a grey market product, all liability rests with the grey market seller. Thankfully, buyers are secured because the store is offering a 1-week money-back guarantee after purchase if you’re not satisfied with the phone. There are several purchase options too such as pick-up, meet-up, and same-day delivery for customers residing in Metro Manila. If you’re outside of Metro Manila, then they can offer shipping through LBC.

As for payment options, you have Cash, bank transfer, or credit card.

To recall, the Sony Xperia Mk. V is the middle child of the new-generation Xperia series which includes the 1, 5, and 10. The five is a slightly watered down version of the 1. The phone features a Quad-DAC (LG users rejoice) and a headphone jack, something we don’t see everyday on a flagship and even some midrangers. It also features a tall notch-less 21:9 FullHD+ OLED screen. It is a compact phone as it only measures 6.1-inches in likes of phones like the ASUS Zenfone 10. It also features an IP68 rating and a screen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2.

It uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB ROM. It comes in an all-pastel finish. There are three colours to choose from. Platinum Silver, Black, and Blue. By the way, this phone also features a MicroSD Card Slot. Another feature that’s now absent on almost every flagship phone.

Of course, the main highlight are its cameras. The Xperia 5 Mk. V only differs slightly from the Xperia 1 Mk. V, that is, the loss of the telephoto sensor. It uses the same 52MP 24mm camera as the latter, as well as the same 12MP Ultrawide and selfie cameras. These sensors are also ZEISS T* Coated. The rear camera can record up to 4K@120fps.
