Sony Xperia XZ The First Ever Smartphone With 4K HDR Display

Sony (previously known as Sony Ericsson) Just launched its new Xperia Series Premium Smartphone Called “Sony Xperia XZ Premium” at the Mobile World Congress 2017. It’s from the Xperia Premium X Series. The best part about this is the specs it provides and how much better it is than its predecessor.

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium has an impressive 5.5-inch 4K HDR display – amazingly bright and sharp, as you can expect from Sony. This device’s display has TRILUMINOS Display for mobile technology as well as X-Reality for mobile picture engine technology – and Dynamic Contrast Enhancement. Need all of those to make it a top-notch Smartphone display when it comes to Sony.


The Xperia XZ Premium has what Sony describes as a “glass loop” surface, which means the glass continues all the way around the device, with metal caps on only the top and bottom.


The glass is Corning Gorilla Glass 5, which can supposedly survive 1.6-meter, shoulder-height drops onto hard, rough surfaces up to 80% of the time. At 7.9mm thick, it is marginally thinner than its smaller sibling, the Xperia XZ, which launched in September last year.

All of the buttons are down one side of the device, and there is a fingerprint sensor built into the power button, allowing you to unlock it easily with one touch of your thumb.


The back of the phone is mirrored, which is handy if you want to check your make-up but does mean it picks up fingerprints very easily.



Sony Xperia XZ Premium is equipped with Super slow motion and Predictive Capture, the new Motion Eye™ camera lets you experience more than the human eye can see. The rear camera is 19MP with 19% pixel density to let you capture more Sharp and in-depth images under low-light and backlit conditions.

It has a recording frame rate of 960 frames per second that is pretty amazing and for this high-end device, it’s a plus. it means you can record videos in slow motion and then play it 4 times slower than real-time and our usual smartphone camera. This feature is competitive with the iPhone.



It comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Processor which in itself is a beast, with a 4GB Ram for super fast speed. This premium device comes with 64 gigs of internal memory and a memory card slot for micro SD card – memory expandable up to 256 GB.
