The Sony Ericsson W995 is a candybar slider model music phone designed by Sony Ericsson as the new Walkman flagship phone, previously known as codename "Hikaru". The W995 was introduced February 2009 and released on 4 June 2009 and uses the 4th version of the 'Walkman Player'. It is also the first Walkman phone to feature a standard 3.5 mm headset jack rather than requiring a FastPort connection. It features an 8.1-megapixel camera which seems similar to the C905. Although its camera is comparable to other cameraphones, the video quality is only QVGA (320×240) at its maximum, unlike the majority of cameraphones at the time that had 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]
