After years of waiting, Sony is once again back on the smartphone track as it launches its newest offering, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium.
Focusing on premium camera performance, which is one of the most important features for users nowadays, Sony has created a smartphone that goes beyond the causual mobile photography experience. To answer the demands of the selfie-loving generation, Sony has equipped their newest phone with the following things:
1) 4K HDR Display
For the first time in a smartphone, the Xperia XZ Premium features a 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range, 2160 x 3840) 5.5-inch display. Sharing Sony’s BRAVIA TV technology, it gives you immersive 4K HDR viewing in the palm of your hand, taking movie-watching and video-gaming to a whole new HD level.
2) Motion Eye Camera Technology
Using the imaging expertise seen only on Sony’s Alpha and Cyber-Shot cameras, Sony Xperia XZ Premium has created a new camera system called the Motion Eye. The 19 MP Motion Eye camera technology enables you to capture movements that even the human eye can't see, ensuring the finest pictures, and the best slow motion videos and action shots.
3) Super Slow Motion
Sony Xperia XZ Premium allows you to slow down moments and record it in 960 frames per second, which you can play back four times slower than other smartphones.
4) Predictive Capture
For action shots, the phone has Predictive Capture to take a shot of every movement even before you press the button. How does it work? It automatically starts buffering images once it detects motion, already saving the best possible shots, making important moments hard to miss.
5) Low-light? No problem
The smartphone also captures more light, which delivers stunning image quality even when it's pretty dark.
6) Sleek design
The exterior has a glass loop surface with a mirrored effect on the back, giving the phone that modern and sleek look. The design details of the external finishing fits perfectly with the software interface, coming together for a sophisticated and unified aesthetic. The phone is also rated IP65/68 water-resistant and dust-proof, reinforced with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back of the handset.
