Xperia™ XZ Premium

Everything becomes Wow

WEIGHT 195g

DIMENSIONS 156 x 77 x 7.9mm

DISPLAY 5.5'' 4K HDR Display, TRILUMINOS™ Display for mobile, X-Reality™ for mobile, Dynamic Contrast Enhancer, sRGB 138%

CAMERA 19MP Motion Eye Camera, 1/2.3” Exmor RS™ for mobile memory stacked sensor, 960 fps Super slow motion videos, Predictive capture, Anti-distortion shutter, Triple image sensing technology

ON THE INSIDEQualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 processor

 

Well, it's here, the successor they never thought would come, following off the heels of the fantastic Xperia Z5 premium,  this is the Xperia XZ Premium. 

Featuring the latest powerhouse from qualcomm, the 835 paired with the enhanced adreno 540, all sitting with 4gb of ddr4 ram and 64gb of storage (minus 14gb for the Android nougat OS). The key thing to note however is the fact that not only is it the first device to announce with the 835, but also it uses the new 10nm SOC which delivers roughly 25-30% more speed.... But uses up to 40% less power!!!!

This means that "small" 3230mah battery, is actually going to provide 15-20% more life than the current 14nm systems, even with the 4k hdr display....

Oh yeah, forgot that bit.

The Xperia XZ Premium has the world's first 4k HDR Display on a mobile,..  What does that mean? I'll show you.

That's some difference. 

 

The phone also boasts an unbelievable and quite simply amazing motion eye camera, at 19mp, each measuring a larger 1.22um to give much better light capture with up to 50% less noise, this is paired with a Sony G f2.0 25mm lens array to give far sharper photos in all light levels, whilst keeping noise at a minimum, but... The unique feature of this camera.. Super slow motion of up to 960fps at 720p. Check this out..

 

The waterproofing has been kept as expected, and the design whilst very closely resembling XZ, you'll find it much more refined and the rear alkaleido panel has been replaced with curved Gorilla glass,  the USB C port has also been upgraded to USB 3.1 speeds to match the much faster UFS memory on board. 

All in all, I can't wait to get this, and I'll be there day 1 in the queue (lol) to get it.

@Cleoriff
The camera slow motion is quite remarkable, quite a leap forward in tech, all due to the triple stacked sensor with embedded memory.
