Xperia 5 is going down a storm at IFA, with tech experts and the world’s media rushing to test out this incredible new device at the Sony booth.

But not everyone can be in Berlin for the launch, so we wanted to show you all exactly what’s going on, and what’s making everyone so excited about Sony’s new flagship smartphone.

With so much happening, the Sony Mobile area is split up into more than ten different zones for IFA attendees to explore.

When guests first enter, they’ll see the immersive gaming area. This is where you’ll find an overview of how 21:9 enhances the gaming experience by allowing you to see more and feel as though you’ve been transported to the world of the game.

In the e-Sports area, influencers Maximilan Stemmler, Domenic Strobel and René Buttler are demonstrating how to play games in 21:9 on the Xperia 1. Attendees can get involved in the interactive session using the handset to level up their experience of Fortnite.

Updated for the Xperia 5, Game enhancer allows users the ability to record gameplay at 20fps and synthesise your voice with Game enhancer’s voice changing feature.

There are also stations set up for a try and test, with product managers on-site to talk visitors through the professional technologies of Xperia 5, as well as the key updates from Xperia 1.

The Cinema Pro area is holding demos for budding filmmakers, showcasing how Xperia 5 can be used by content creators to shoot on-the-go or to direct your own movie.

At the Display & Dolby Atmos® stand, Sony’s expert product managers are taking guests through the immersive audio technologies of Xperia’s latest flagship device. A short walk away, the 360-sound area allows visitors to immerse themselves in the sound experience.

Bundled with Xperia 5, Sony’s industry leading and award-winning WF-1000XM3 truly wireless Noise Cancelling headphones are on display. Combining exceptional sound in a compact, stylish design – they are the perfect accessory to complement Xperia’s latest flagship device.

Xperia 5 is available in gorgeous Blue, Red, Grey and Black*, with handy accessories including the Style Cover View, a case that allows users to see notifications and content even when the cover is closed.
