Design, Display and Camera

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium features a beautiful glass design. The phone is covered in glass all round, except for the top and bottom sides that are metallic. The glass cover is built on the tough Corning Gorilla Glass 5, which can survive a 1.6 metre free fall most of the time.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium offers a brilliant 5.5-inch display. The smartphone’s display comes from the same stock as Sony’s Bravia TV with TRILUMINOS built-in. However, this is not all that makes the display of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium great. The display offers 2160 x 3840 pixels resolution and supports 4K HDR.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium sports a 19 megapixels camera on the back. The camera features laser and predictive phase detection autofocus. The camera incorporates Motion Eye, a new technology that allows capture of the most subtle details with an outstanding 960 frames per second.

This means that videos shot at this frame rate can be played in super slow motion, at a rate four times slower than other smartphones. Sony Xperia XZ Premium sports a 13 megapixels front facing camera. It is also dust proof and waterproof.
