Even James Bond carries a smartphone and, in the upcoming movie Spectre, Bond’s phone is the Xperia Z5. The news was seemingly confirmed in a new Sony commercial released over the weekend, though 007 himself isn’t actually featured in the short video.
Instead, his assistant Moneypenny (played by Naomie Harris) is sent to retrieve Bond’s smartphone. She uses Sony’s RX100 IV camera to help coordinate the drop-off. She’s then chased down by a pair of thugs, ultimately knocking them out in a dark corridor using the Xperia Z5’s low light camera to gain the upperhand.
The commercial, which Harris describes as “action-packed mini movie in itself,” also suggests that her Moneypenny character could play an even larger role in the film than usual. The film is set to release in the U.K. on Oct. 26 before arriving in America on Nov. 6.
Sony has been paying to insert its devices into James Bond movies since Casino Royale, but the company almost missed out on the chance to sponsor 007’s latest adventure. Leaked emails from earlier this summer revealed that the Japanese giant was engaged in a bidding war with Samsung over the product placement deal.
This new video seems to confirm that James Bond will in fact carry an Xperia smartphone, even if his assistant takes the lead in this first commercial.
