Meet our Original Blended Material

The Xperia 5 V's packaging uses Sony's Original Blended Material, which is made from bamboo, sugarcane fibres, and post-consumer recycled paper, all of which are readily available around the world's largest manufacturing hubs in Asia.

We're making packaging sustainable

As part of our sustainability drive, the Xperia 5 V packaging has eliminated plastic components or replaced them with paper materials0. We've also made the packaging slim and compact for more efficient transportation.

We're using more recycled plastic

At Sony we've reduced our use of non-renewable resources by developing SORPLAS™, a recycled plastic that is eco-conscious and offers high performance, making it ideal for our new products.

We're improving accessibility 

From enabling voice control to increasing text size, the Xperia 5 V includes a range of accessibility features, enabling anyone to communicate freely, whatever their individual needs.

Photography Pro helps everyone take better photos

With the latest Photography Pro, you can opt to have a sound played when your Xperia camera tilts to one side or the other. So, a person who is blind or has low vision can take a straight picture. We've also updated the User Interface to make it easier to use.
