This morning in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress, 27th February 2017 – Sony Mobile Communications (“Sony Mobile”) today announced its most ground-breaking smartphone to date, Xperia XZ Premium, with a camera so advanced it captures motion that the human eye can’t see, a beautiful 4K HDR display, super-fast download speeds, a stunning loop design and even more intelligent features.
Encapsulating decades of Sony innovation, Xperia XZ Premium incorporates imaging know-how embedded on Sony ‘α’ and Cyber-shotTM cameras to create the new Motion EyeTM camera system, for capturing life in ways no other smartphone can. The first smartphone to feature a memory stacked ExmorTMRS sensor with technologies usually only found on premium compact cameras, it provides 5 x faster image scanning and data transfer. This means you can create sensational videos from your everyday moments by recording in 960 frames per second, providing Super slow motion video playback that is four times slower than other smartphonesiv giving you more detail than has ever been possible in the palm of your hand. Plus Predictive Capture stays one step ahead and automatically starts buffering images when it detects motion even before you press the button, so you can find a moment your eye may just have missed from a selection of up to four shots taken a second before you clicked. On top of this, the new 19MP high resolution sensor has 19% larger pixels to capture more light and provides exceptional detail and sharp images even in low-light and backlit conditions. Additional improvements have been made inside Motion EyeTM to the BionzTM for mobile processing engine meaning it detects moving objects more precisely to enable Predictive Capture.Clarity, detail and texture are also improved to give exceptional image quality thanks to the redesigned G lens with high optical clarity.
For the first time ever in a smartphone, Xperia XZ Premium features a 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range, 2160 x 3840) 5.5 display. A truly unique Sony experience, it uses Sonys BRAVIA TV technology to give you an immersive 4K HDR viewing experience in the palm of your hand, removing the constraints of your sofa. Astonishing brightness, colour, clarity and contrast are realised to create levels of realism you almost feel part of the scene. The sharp, vivid quality of the display is enriched by Sonys native technologies TRILUMINOSTM Display for mobile, X-Reality for mobile and Dynamic Contrast Enhancer.
