Sony just announced the Xperia Z5 during its press conference at the IFA trade show in Berlin.

The company’s new flagship phone features a familiar industrial slate design, and packs an upgraded 23-megapixel rear camera with improved zoom and advanced image stabilization (plus a 5-megapixel camera in front). Sony’s also added better charging and a 2900mAh battery that should last two full days. The Xperia Z5 even features a fingerprint sensor along the side built into the power button.

Other specs include a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 810 chip, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop with along with some of Sony’s own software. It also boasts an IP68 dust and water-resistant rating without needing to cover up the microUSB port.

The Xperia Z5 comes in white, black, gold or green. It launches worldwide in October, though we still don’t how much the device will actually cost.
