Joining the league of the 4K HDR display-sporting smartphones such as the LG G6 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium features a 5.5-inch display with a pixel-per-inch count of 807. A 4K display means that it has a resolution of 3840 2160 pixels. Sony has also collaborated with Amazon to showcase a few of its shows in 4K HDR on the phone from Amazon Prime Video, so it s fair to say that there will be actual content to use with the 4K HDR screen on the phone. Additionally, Netflix too has had 4K HDR content available for a while now. It’s currently supported on the LG G6, but the support can be expected to be extended to the likes of Xperia XZ Premium and the Galaxy S8 duo soon.

World s first super slow-motion camera

Sony s Xperia XZ Premium also comes with Motion Eye technology integrated in its camera. The new technology has been touted by Sony as the world s first super slow motion camera on a smartphone, when it was revealed on the Sony Xperia XZs. Sony has also integrated fast memory into the camera stack, which allows it to shoot at 960fps at 720p resolution, which is four times the frame-rate that other top-end smartphones such as the Google Pixel and Pixel XL can achieve.

Snapdragon 835

Qualcomm s newest Snapdragon 835 is to power a range of flagship smartphones this year, including the OnePlus 5, HTC U11, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ (in certain markets), the Essential Phone and the Xiaomi Mi 6. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium also joins this league. Built using the 10nm fabrication process, the processor promises more efficiency with low power consumption. According to Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 835 SoC is 35 percent smaller, and uses 25 percent less power than previous designs. There is also support for augmented reality or virtual reality capabilities in devices, along with offering enhanced camera features and capabilities.

Triple-sensor system

For a better photography experience, Sony has also added the triple-sensor system to the XZ Premium s camera, which is aimed to offer laser autofocus, an RGBC infrared sensor for adjusting white balance, and an updated ExmorRS image sensor. The smartphone sports the new 19-megapixel rear Motion Eye camera on the rear, and a 13-megapixel front camera.

Water resistant

Lastly, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium also comes with an improved IP68 rating. The IP or Ingress Protection ratings are used to gauge and define the levels of sealing effectiveness against intrusion from dirt or moisture into a device. In the IP rating, the first digit stands for resistance to dust while the second stands for water resistance. With the improved IP68 ratings, a device is not only water resistant but can be submerged completely for up to 30 minutes at depths of up to 1.5m. Sony has been known for its water resistant phones in the past, and the XZ Premium is definitely not the first phone from Sony’s portfolio to boast such capabilities. The Sony Xperia Z was popularized as the first ‘waterproof’ smartphone. ALSO READ: OnePlus 5 shatters Samsung Galaxy S8, Sony Xperia XZ Premium in leaked benchmark scores
