The video is originally uploaded to YouTube but it was taken down after a brief period of time. Someone else uploaded it on Dailymotion, you can watch it from below:
Since the video is in French, the information is not clear but from the translations of various French readers helped to connect the dots.

When released, it will become the first smartphone to feature a 4K display and we are eagerly waiting to see it in action. On the other hand, the Xperia Z5 features a 5.2 inch 1080p display.
