World’s first smartphone Sony announced today is the Xperia XZ Premium with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4K HDR screen and much more. Here are the details.
Sony’s Xperia XZ Premium not only brings with it the best and not found on any other smartphone features and hardware keys, such as the 5.5-inch 4K HDR display, Snapdragon 835 CPU, but used the same 19MP Motion Eye camera with 1/2.3″ Exmor RS memory stacked sensor, 960 fps super slow motion videos, Predictive Capture mode, Anti-distortion shutter. It has a Triple image sensing technology and 5-axis image stabilization for sake-free videos as found in Xperia XZs.
The XZ Premium has the first 4K HDR (2,160 x 3,840, High Dynamic Range) display in the smartphone – it’s the most desirable new techology for SUHD and 4KTVs, but now Sony’s crammed it into a mobile device. We have although seen 4K on the Xperia Z5 Premium in 2015, and in this case currently, Sony has partnered with Amazon for 4K HDR content, and the HDR element truly does great things for color reproduction and what else.
Other notable features include water resistance, rated to IP65 and IP68, a thinner profile at 7.9mm, and microSD storage expandability. The Xperia XZ Premium is really all about that camera, display, and processor combo. That gets a 13-megapixel front-facing camera and also has a dedicated camera shutter button. Also comes in single and Dual SIM variants, used of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on front and back. It has a fingerprint scanner embedded into the Home button.
