The Sony Ericsson W995 is a candybar slider model music phone designed by Sony Ericsson as the new Walkman flagship phone, previously known as Hikaru. The W995 was released on 4 June 2009 and uses the 4th version of the 'Walkman Player'. It is also the first Walkman phone to feature a 3.5mm headset jack. It features an 8.1-megapixel camera which seems similar to the C905 which is also one of the best cameras among all the Walkman phones.[citation needed] Although its camera is comparable to other cameraphones, the video quality is only QVGA (320×240) at its maximum, unlike the majority of phones with VGA and HD videos.

The W995 is available in three different colors which have been advertised as Progressive Black, Cosmic Silver and Energetic Red. It comes with an 8 GB memory card in its package.

On August 21, 2009, it won the EISA Best Music Phone Award.[4]
